On Tuesday, former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden will host a campaign rally in Iowa.
Biden is visiting Iowa along with President Donald Trump, and their feud has only grown stronger. Biden took a jab a Trump, on Tuesday morning kicking off his visit Iowa.
“He’s a threat in my view, a threat to our core values,” Biden said. “And folks, the fact of the matter is that four years of Donald Trump will be viewed as an aberration in American history. Eight years, eight years will fundamentally change who we are as a nation, how we’re viewed around the world.”
Also, Biden’s campaign has secured endorsements from Iowa officials.
“Today’s endorsements are invaluable additions to the robust campaign Vice President Biden is building in Iowa,” said Jake Braun, Biden’s Iowa State Director. “These are influential political and community leaders, all of whom are ready to work by Joe ‘Biden’s side to change the course of this country – fighting for the soul of our nation, rebuilding an inclusive middle class, and unifying America.”
Biden will be live in Davenport, Iowa at 7:00 p.m CDT. You can watch live below via WHBFTV’s Facebook page (it will begin closer to rally start):
Bolton says Iran silence on US talks offer ‘deafening’
US National Security Advisor John Bolton on Tuesday described as "deafening" Iran's apparent silence on an offer to negotiate with Washington.
"The president has held the door open to real negotiations," Bolton told journalists in Jerusalem.
"In response, Iran's silence has been deafening," he added.
Bolton is in Jerusalem for what Israel described as unprecedented talks with his Russian and Israeli counterparts, along with meeting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Speaking alongside the US advisor, Netanyahu said there was "a wider basis for cooperation between the three of us than many believe."
Iran air defense missiles must be taken seriously: experts
The shooting down last week of a sophisticated US drone by an Iranian missile demonstrates that Tehran's air defence capabilities can pose a challenge to US air superiority, experts say.
The Global Hawk, an advanced US navy surveillance drone, was flying at high altitude -- it can reach 60,000 feet (18 kilometers) -- early Friday local time when it was struck by a ground-to-air missile by Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards."The shooting down of the drone shows Iran is revealing a capability and choosing to message it to the United States," said Becca Wasser, an analyst at Rand Corp.
"The fact that Iran was able to shoot down the drone demonstrates that they have developed or purchased fairly significant capabilities and are skilled at employing these systems."
Trump considering withdrawal from 68-year-old treaty with Japan: report
President Donald Trump has been privately talking about withdrawing from the postwar defense treaty with Japan, according to three sources familiar with the matter.
Trump is telling confidants the treaty is unfair to the U.S. because it promises to help if Japan was ever attacked, but doesn't require Japan to come to America's defense, the sources told Bloomberg.
So far, the president hasn't taken any step toward pulling out of the treaty, which was signed in 1951, and administration officials insist that move would be highly unlikely.
