Here’s how world leaders are reacting to the historic Trump-Kim summit


  • Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un concluded a highly-anticipated summit on Tuesday.
  • The two leaders’ relationship has global ramifications.
  • South Korea, China, Japan, and the UK, are among the countries to respond so far
  • Scroll down to see them all.

Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un met for the first time in Singapore, where they promised to commit to peaceful relations and work toward “complete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula — although the exact definition remains unclear.

The two leaders’ relationship has had massive implications on countries around the world. North Korea flew a missile over northern Japan last August weeks after Trump threatened Kim with “fire and fury.” The US and South Korea has also held military drills on the North’s border for decades, in what Pyongyang has interpreted as rehearsals for war on the Korean peninsula. 

Take a look at world leaders have said of the summit so far.

South Korea: A “great victory,” “huge step forward” by all of us

President Moon Jae-in, who has for months been trying to bring Trump and Kim to the negotiating table, praised the “historic” summit and called it a “great victory achieved by both the United States and the two Koreas.”

Read Moon’s full statement below:

Trump told reporters on Tuesday that the US and South Korea would end war games on the Korean Peninsula, although militaries from both those countries said they have yet to receive that instruction.

Many South Koreans in Seoul also told Business Insider last weekend that the summit could be an opportunity for Koreans to “liberate” from the “constant uncertainty” of war, and that any inter-Korean meeting was “better than nothing.”

China: We might lift sanctions

China could adjust or even remove its sanctions on North Korea, the country’s foreign ministry said after the summit. China is North Korea’s largest trading partner.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters on Tuesday, as cited by Reuters: “The UN Security Council resolutions that have been passed say that if North Korea respects and acts in accordance with the resolutions, then sanction measures can be adjusted, including to pause or remove the relevant sanctions.”

Beijing has long argued that sanctions were “not a goal in themselves.”

The country’s state media also covered the Trump-Kim summit closely and appeared to approve of the talks: “Give peace a chance,” the state-run People’s Daily newspaper tweeted while reporting the summit.

Beijing “welcomes and supports the history-making talks between DPRK and US leaders” and “will continue to play a unique and important role to resolve the peninsula issue,” People’s Daily reported, paraphrasing comments from Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

Japan: Thanks Trump for bringing up human rights issues

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters after the summit that he was grateful to Trump for bringing up human rights issues between Japan and North Korea, which have plagued relations between the two Asian countries for decades.

At least 17 Japanese citizens disappeared at the hands of North Korea in the 1970s and 1980s, and many of their whereabouts remain unknown.

Trump said he had “absolutely” raised the issue of the abductions with Kim, and although they weren’t mentioned in the joint statement, the North Koreans “are going to be working on that.”

Trump and Kim held a private one-on-one meeting during the summit, and there may never be a full record of the conversation.

According to the South China Morning Post, Abe said on Tuesday that he “would like to thank the president [Trump] for raising the abduction issue” and that he was willing to continue the discussions with North Korea directly.

He said: “I’m determined that Japan will have to directly face North Korea and resolve [the abductions] bilaterally.”

Britain: We’re hopeful for a “secure and prosperous future” in North Korea

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson described the summit as “constructive” and called on Kim to continue on the path toward complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization (CVID).

Here is Johnson’s full statement:

“We welcome the fact that President Trump and Kim Jong Un have held a constructive summit. This is an important step toward the stability of a region vital to global economic growth and home to thousands of British nationals and important UK interests.

“The reaffirmation of North Korea’s commitment in the Panmunjom Declaration to work toward complete denuclearisation of the North Korean Peninsula is a signal that Kim Jong Un may have finally heeded the message that only a change of course can bring a secure and prosperous future to the people of North Korea.

“There is much work still to be done and we hope Kim continues to negotiate in good faith towards complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization. The UK will continue to support the United States in its efforts to achieve denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.”

The Trump administration has long made clear its goal of CVID, but Kim didn’t seem to make any promises toward achieving it during the talks. The US-North Korea joint statement pledged to work toward “complete denuclearization,” which falls short of the US’s intention.

Johnson previously described North Korea’s nuclear threat as a “nuclear sword of Damocles… held over the head of a trembling human race.”

EU: “Diplomacy is the only way forward” toward peace

The summit “reaffirms our strong conviction that diplomacy is the only way forward towards lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula,” said EU High Representative Federica Mogherini on Tuesday. “Pursuing the diplomatic track is often challenging, but it is always rewarding.”

Mogherini also emphasized the importance of CVID, and said the joint statement was a “clear signal that this goal can be achieved.”

She also paid tribute to the “leadership, wisdom and determination of” South Korean President Moon Jae-in that led to the summit.

Bud becomes Category 4 hurricane off Mexico, due to weaken soon


MEXICO CITY, June 12 (Reuters) – Hurricane Bud strengthened to a Category 4 storm in the Pacific Ocean more than 200 miles (322 kilometers) off the coast of Mexico early on Tuesday, but should begin to weaken later in the day, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

With maximum sustained winds of some 130 miles per hour (210 kilometers per hour), Bud was barreling towards the popular beach resorts of Los Cabos on the southernmost tip of the Baja California peninsula, the Miami-based NHC said.

By the time it is forecast to reach the peninsula late on Thursday, Bud is expected to have weakened to a tropical storm, the NHC said. No coastal warnings were in effect.

Tropical Storm Allison, 2001: 41 deaths

While not an official hurricane, Allison clocks in as the costliest and deadliest tropical storm in US history, causing 41 deaths and costing more than $5 billion in damage. The storm started over the Gulf of Mexico near Texas, then traveled east, causing floods like the one pictured here in Houston, Texas.

Hurricane Irene, 2011: 56 deaths

Hurricane Irene, the first storm to hit the US since Ike three years earlier, made landfall in North Carolina as a Category 1 storm. The storm eventually made its way up to New York City, bringing flooding — like the kind pictured here in Puerto Rico — and causing $7.3 billion in damage overall.

Hurricane Floyd, 1999: 57 deaths

Hurricane Floyd was a catastrophic storm because of the rain it brought along. The rain caused extreme flooding from North Carolina on up as the Category 2 storm traveled up the East Coast.

Great Atlantic Hurricane, 1944: 64 deaths

The Great Atlantic Hurricane of 1944 was also devastating to New England, with 64 deaths and more than $100 million in damage. The storm was a Category 3 as it sped up the coast, hitting the Carolinas, Rhode Island, and Long Island before downgrading to a Category 2 in Maine.

Hurricane Agnes, 1972: 122 deaths

Hurricane Agnes, as seen in this image made it all the way inland to Pennsylvania. Although it was only a Category 1 storm (with winds from 74-95 mph), it still caused 122 deaths and caused $2.1 billion in damage.

Hurricane Ike, 2008: 195 deaths

The third costliest storm in US history, with $29.5 billion in damage, occurred in September 2008. Starting off the west coast of Africa, Hurricane Ike made its way over the Caribbean and into the Gulf, making US landfall in Texas as a Category 2 storm

Hurricane Sandy, 2012: 285 deaths

With $71.4 billion in damage, Hurricane Sandy was the second costliest hurricane in US history. The Category 1 storm pummeled New York City, flooding the city’s transportation systems and leaving thousands of homes destroyed.

It’s looking more and more like Hurricane Joaquin won’t make landfall in the US and join the list of most horrific storms in US history.

Hurricane Audrey, 1957: 416 deaths

The U.S. started naming storms with women’s names starting in 1953. Hurricane Audrey, the first storm of the 1957 hurricane season was the deadliest of the 1950s. It originated in the Gulf of Mexico, making landfall in Texas as a Category 4 storm. This image of the storm shows just how far hurricane imaging has come.

Atlantic-Gulf, 1919: 600 to 900 deaths

This Category 4 storm swept into the Gulf of Mexico right under Key West, Florida(pictured), landing as a Category 3 storm in Corpus Christi, Texas. Anywhere from 600 to 900 people died in that storm.

Hurricane Katrina, 2005: 1,200 deaths

Hurricane Katrina is arguably the most notorious storm of the 21st century. The storm made landfall as a Category 5 near Miami before striking Louisiana as a Category 3 storm. Katrina was the third deadliest, and costliest hurricane in U.S. history with more than 1,200 deaths and $108 billion in damage.

Early on Tuesday, Bud was moving towards the northwest at around 7 mph (11 km/h). Through Thursday, the storm is expected to dump rainfall of 3 to 6 inches (8-15 cm) across much of southwestern Mexico, with up to 10 inches in some areas.

The heavy rain could cause deadly flash floods and mudslides, the NHC said. (Writing by Dave Graham; Editing by Bernadette Baum)

Trevor Noah reveals the real reason Jon Stewart left ‘The Daily Show’


“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah recently opened about about what previous host Jon Stewart told him when it was announced in 2015 he would be leaving after more than 15 years.  

“I walked into his office and I said, ’Hey, what’s going on? Are you being pushed out? What’s happening? You need my help, let me know, man. We’ll fight,” Noah recalled at a panel discussion earlier this month. 

But Stewart wasn’t being pushed out. He was leaving: 

“He said ‘I’m leaving because I’m tired.’ And he said, ‘I’m tired of being angry.’ And he said, ’I’m angry all the time. I don’t find any of this funny. I do not know how to make it funny right now, and I don’t think the host of the show, I don’t think the show deserves a host who does not feel that it is funny.” 

Noah said Stewart urged him to “relish the fact that you can make jokes about these things, because there will come a day when you are too angry to laugh. But don’t rush to get there.”  

Stewart has publicly addressed his departure several times, and the toll of the job was apparent. 

He told The Guardian in 2015 that he wasn’t getting the same satisfaction.

Jon Stewart Through the Years

Long before he became a household name, Jon Stewart broke onto the scene as an MTV host with his own show. In 1993, the funny guy cut his teeth on “The John Stewart Show,” a late-night show with a variety of celebrity guests and a fun opening monologue.  His style was very 90s and a little couture immature. In his early days, Stewart regularly hit the town in hoodies and T-shirts and sported dark, curly locks.

In the 90s, Stewart was also very fond of the leather jacket, T-shirt and jeans look. The dark-haired comedian had a sit down with fellow late-night host Conan O’Brien in 1993 and sans a few gray hairs, the pair look strikingly similar to how they look now.  Photo by: Lesly Weiner/NBCU Photo Bank

Rumors swirled that the young comedian was romancing supermodel Cindy Crawford in the 90s. The pair were spotted all gussied up in 1994 at the MTV Video Music Awards at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. (Photo by Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic)

In 1995, Stewart met up with singer Jon Bon Jovi. At the time, the New York City native was still sticking to fashion basics like T-shirts. Are you sensing a trend here? (Photo by Ke.Mazur/WireImage)

It’s love! Stewart, who wrapped “The Jon Stewart Show” on MTV in 1995, snuggled up to girlfriend Tracy McShane in 1996 at an HBO party. The pair were reportedly set up by a production assistant and clearly couldn’t keep their hands off each other during their young romance — which definitely had staying power. They wed four years after this photo was taken. Perhaps she liked his favorite blue T-shirt as much as  he did. (Photo by Manny Hernandez/Liaison)

Stewart was a rising star in the late 90s — and as his fame continued to grow, so did his fashion choices. Enter the era of Jon Stewart in more formal attire. (Photo by Ron Galella/WireImage)

In 1999, Stewart attended the  GQ Magazine Of The Year Awards on October 21, 1999, and posed alongside actor Michael J. Fox. During this year, Stewart co-produced several movies like “The Daily View” and “The Daily Show Summer Spectacular.”

Look who is getting gussied up now! Stewart looked dapper in a tux at the 1999 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles, despite the fact that it seemed to be a bit big for him. His famous locks were just showing the first signs of a little salt and pepper. (Photo by Frank Micelotta/ImageDirect)

By 1999, Stewart and his now peppered locks, were center stage on Comedy Central’s, “The Daily Show.” The TV regular replaced Craig Kilborn when he left the show. Naturally, he brought his comedic edge and political prowess to the host seat and a hit was literally born overnight. For his big show, Stewart also stepped up his fashion game and fully traded in his T-shirts for slim-fit suits and well-selected ties.   (Photo by Corey Sipkin/NY Daily News Archive via Getty Images)

Although, he wasn’t always suited up. In 2002, the funny guy ditched his clothes in order to host the 44th Annual Grammy Awards.  (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images.

Recognize these two funny faces? Stewart stopped by “Saturday Night Live” in 2002 for a memorable skit with Amy Poehler, where the pair spoofed Mel Gibson. There’s no real “fashion moment” here unless you count army greens.

Pretty much everyone fell victim to the political pundit’s funny antics — including Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, who was all smiles during her 2003 appearance on “The Daily Show.” More importantly, Stewart’s attire — dark suit, red tie, crisp white shirt, peppery locks — became his go-to look for basically the next 10 years. (Photo by Scott Gries/Getty Images for The Daily Show)

Back to basics! In 2008, a low-key Stewart was spotted goofing around with his son Nathan at a New York Knicks game. Stewart channeled his younger self in a classic T-shirt. His son, also seems to be inheriting his style. (Photo by James Devaney/WireImage)

Stewart clearly understands the power of a red tie during a political interview. For his final sit down with President Barack Obama, Stewart rocked his signature look — dark suit and a red tie. Some fashion habits really do die hard — but we aren’t complaining. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci, File)

“These things are cyclical. You have moments of dissatisfaction, and then you come out of it and it’s OK,” he said. “But the cycles become longer and maybe more entrenched, and that’s when you realize, ‘OK, I’m on the back side of it now.’”

He also spoke about watching networks such as Fox News in search of content for the show.

“Watching these channels all day is incredibly depressing,” Stewart said. “I live in a constant state of depression. I think of us as turd miners. I put on my helmet, I go and mine turds. Hopefully I don’t get turd lung disease.”

Trump says now-famous G-7 photo with Merkel and other leaders was just ‘an innocent picture’


  • A photo of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other world leaders talking to a seated US President Donald Trump became a sensation following the contentious G7 summit.
  • In an interview with ABC, Trump said the image was “such an innocent picture.”
  • Trump also incorrectly claimed that the photo “was put out by my people,” as it was released by Merkel’s office.

The most famous photo to come out of this year’s G7 summit was not the official “family portrait,” but rather a photo of other world leaders talking to a seated President Donald Trump.

The photo became a sensation online, and many observers felt it underscored the growing tension between Trump and the other G7 leaders.

In an interview following the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, Trump tried to downplay the photo’s meaning to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. Trump said the group was simply waiting to see the final version of the official G7 communique, a largely symbolic statement about the progress made at the summit.

She was looking at me, you know what we were doing?” Trump said of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. “We were talking while we were waiting for the final copy of the document. That was, that was such an innocent picture.”

“International cooperation cannot be dictated by fits of anger and throwaway remarks,” Macron said in a statement.

Trump also incorrectly claimed that the photo was released by the US team.

“You know, we put out that picture. That was put out by my people,” Trump told Stephanopoulos.

The image was first released by Merkel’s spokesman, Steffen Seibert, and was taken by the official German government photographer Jesco Denzel.

Rose McGowan indicted for felony cocaine possession


Rose McGowan has been indicted for the felony charge of cocaine possession.

USA Today reports that a grand jury in Loudoun County, Va. voted to indict the Charmed star on Monday, June 11, 2018. McGowan was not in the courtroom at the time, and she reportedly will not be present when her trial date is scheduled.

TMZ notes that McGowan could face up to one year behind bars if she’s convicted.

McGowan has denied any wrongdoing. In a statement, her attorney, Jose Baez, told the celebrity news site, “Rose steadfastly maintains her innocence. These charges would have never been brought if it weren’t for her activism as a voice for women everywhere. I assure you, this selective prosecution will be met with a strong defense.”

As Nicki Swift previously reported in October 2017, an arrest warrant for McGowan was issued for “felony possession of a controlled substance” for an incident that allegedly occurred in January of that year. At the time, McGowan was said to have left items at Washington Dulles International Airport that allegedly tested positive for narcotics.

McGowan responded to the warrant on Twitter, seemingly accusing authorities of attempting to quiet her amid the Harvey Weinstein scandal that rocked Hollywood (McGowan, who has accused Weinstein of rape, has been an outspoken voice for the #MeToo movement).

McGowan later surrendered to police in Virginia on Nov. 14. She was quickly released on a $5,000 bond.

Speaking to writer Ronan Farrow for The New Yorker, McGowan, who shared her belief that the drugs may have been planted in her wallet, said, “I will clearly plead not guilty.”

What is a meteotsunami? – AOL Weather


When intense storms move over open water, they can generate a wall of water known as a meteotsunami, an uncommon event that can cause damage along the coast of bodies of water.

These events can be difficult to predict and can range from small, almost undetectable waves of water to larger waves that can inundate coastal areas.

“Meteotsunamis have characteristics similar to earthquake-generated tsunamis, but they are caused by air pressure disturbances often associated with fast-moving weather systems,” the National Weather Service (NWS) said.

A fast-moving line of storms, such as a squall line or derecho, can be strong enough to trigger a meteotsunami in addition to other dangers such as powerful winds and frequent lightning.

“The storm generates a wave that moves toward the shore, and is amplified by a shallow continental shelf and inlet, bay or other coastal feature,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.

Meteotsunamis tend to be regional in nature, unlike tsunamis set off by earthquakes which can be far-reaching and impact a significant stretch of coastline.

“In the United States, conditions for destructive meteotsunamis are most favorable along the East coast, Gulf of Mexico, and in the Great Lakes, where they may pose a greater threat than earthquake-generated tsunamis,” the NWS said.

The phenomenon has also been observed around the world, including in the Mediterranean Sea, the Adriatic Sea and off the coast of Australia.

Some meteotsunamis are relatively small and may occur without being noticed.

This was the case on May 15, 2018, when a line of severe storms blasted through the mid-Atlantic and triggered a meteotsunami along part of the region’s coast.

Water gauges in the area measured a change in water level of several inches, too small for many people to distinguish apart from normal waves.

However, others can be significant and bring life-threatening conditions.

“The strongest meteotsunami on record struck Vela Luka, Croatia, in June 1978. The event featured 19.5-foot wave heights, lasted several hours, and caused significant damage to the port and boats,” the NWS said.

One of the largest meteotsunamis on record in the U.S. hit the Boothbay Harbor in Maine in 2008.

Waves up to 12 feet were recorded with the harbor flooding and emptying out three times over 15 minutes. These waves damaged boats and infrastructure across the area.

An even larger meteotsunami was reported on Lake Michigan in 1929 when a 20-foot wave crashed into Grand Haven, Michigan. Ten people died after being swept out into the lake by the wave.

While meteotsunamis can pose a danger to coastal communities, predicting when they will occur and how large they will be remains a challenge.

Additionally, they can be hard to distinguish from other weather-generated waves, such as storm surge or a seiche, or a wave oscillating in a semi- or fully-enclosed body of water.

“The United States is still in the early stages of developing a meteotsunami forecast and warning system,” the NWS said.

“Led by NOAA, these efforts include developing a process that outlines when, where, and how meteotsunami warnings should be issued based on high resolution air pressure measurements combined with meteotsunami forecast models,” the NWS added.

The FDA is warning against sun protection pills. Here’s why.


Sunscreen pills are one of the newest trends in sun protection ― they’re oral supplements that claim to protect the skin from the sun’s harmful rays ― but you could be putting yourself at an increased risk of sunburn or skin cancer if you’re misusing them. 

In May, the Food and Drug Administration released a statement warning about the risks of using oral supplements as a sole form of sun protection (keywords: sole form). The federal agency accused four brands ―  Advanced Skin Brightening FormulaSunsafe RxSolaricare and Sunergetic ― of misleading advertising. These brands claim their products can protect people from the sun and its harmful effects, which isn’t necessarily true.

Two experts are helping us clear up the issue: Dr. Rachel Nazarian of Schweiger Dermatology Group in Manhattan and Dr. Jeanine Downie, a board-certified dermatologist and contributing medical expert to Zwivel.com, talked to HuffPost about whether sun protection supplements work, how they should be used and whether we need them. 

Do these supplements actually provide any protection from the sun? 

The answer is more complex than a simple yes or no. 

As Downie told HuffPost, there are a number of pills marketed as sunscreen pills that really don’t protect people from the sun. 

“What I tell my patients is there’s nothing like topical sunblock,” she said. “With these pills, people feel like they can pop a pill, not put on sunblock at all, and that’s completely dangerous and completely false [especially] with incidents of skin cancer rising the way it has been.” 

What these sun protection supplements do on a cellular level, Nazarian explained to HuffPost, is “curb some of the inflammation and some of the damage that was done to cells.” 

But, she stressed, “they’re not sunscreen. It’s not like they’re blocking the radiation or offering a shield against ultraviolet radiation.”

There is one supplement, Heliocare, that Downie and Nazarian said they’ve recommended to their patients, especially those who are extremely fair or very photosensitive. Heliocare’s main active ingredient is Polypodium leucotomos extract, which comes from a fern native to Central and South America. According to one study from The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology, Polypodium leucotomos, when taken orally for a regular period of time, proved to be an “effective means for reducing the damaging effects of ultraviolet radiation.”

Still, supplements should NOT replace sunscreen. 

Instead, Downie and Nazarian said they have recommended that their patients use Heliocare in addition to their regular sunscreen to add protection. In simple terms, Heliocare can slightly increase your threshold for sunburns and your sensitivity to radiation, Nazarian said, but it is not a sunblock. 

“There’s nothing better than putting sunblock on your actual face, neck, ears, backs of hands every morning, and then reapplying it multiple times a day,” said Downie, whose patients call her the sunblock queen, the sunblock police and the sunblock reckoner. 

“As for your body parts, if you’re not going to be just quickly driving to work, and you’re outside in the sun all day ― carrying the mail, cutting the lawn, if you’re a construction worker, if you’re a crossing guard ― any of those things where you’re outside all day, you need it on your body as well. That is topical sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more.” 

Downie also stressed that sunblock should be worn in any weather, as up to 80 percent of the sun’s rays can penetrate through the clouds, even on gray and gloomy days.

“All that nonsense about ‘Oh, it’s not sunny, I don’t have to wear sunblock’ is definitely that ― nonsense,” she said. “Rain or shine, January through December, I don’t care what time of year it is, I want people to wear sunblock.”

So, if sunblock is the most important, do we really need supplements, too?  

Downie said that if someone is diligent about consistently applying and re-applying their sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) every day in sufficient amounts, it’s not totally necessary to add a supplement like Heliocare to their routine. 

But, as Nazarian pointed out, we’re not perfect humans who apply (and reapply) the perfect amount of sunscreen every single day. In her opinion, then, adding a supplement can be beneficial when used in addition to a topical sunscreen. 

“In order to get the SPF they advertise on the bottle, it really needs to be applied in a nice, healthy amount and then it needs to be reapplied throughout the day,” she said. “You and I both know that, at least with half the population, if they’re wearing makeup, they’re not going to be applying more sunscreen on top of their makeup during the day.”

Sunscreen is the best thing out there for sun protection, Nazarian said, but it’s still flawed, and “it’s still not good enough.” 

“I would never tell people to turn away additional tools they could use to prevent skin cancer and even sun aging,” Nazarian added.

So what exactly about these pills should concern us?

It’s not an ingredient in the pills, rather it’s the marketing.

The FDA stated that the companies named above were “putting people’s health at risk by giving consumers a false sense of security that a dietary supplement could prevent sunburn, reduce early skin aging caused by the sun, or protect from the risks of skin cancer.” 

If people believe the pills will protect them from the sun, they may be less inclined to apply a topical sunscreen as well. And if they aren’t wearing sunscreen while exposed to the sun’s rays, they’re not truly protected from the sun. 

As the FDA aptly stated, “There’s no pill or capsule that can replace your sunscreen.”

Florida man kills four children, himself during standoff, police say


June 12 (Reuters) – A Florida man killed four children and shot a police officer before he took his own life, ending a daylong standoff with police on Monday, police said.

The standoff started shortly before midnight on Sunday when police responded to a domestic violence call from a woman at an apartment complex in Orlando, Florida, the Orlando Police Department said on Twitter.

When police arrived, the suspect shot a police officer and then barricaded himself inside an apartment where he held hostage four children ages 1, 6, 10 and 11, police said.

The standoff ended at about 9 p.m. local time on Monday, when police entered the apartment and found the children and the suspect Gary Wayne Lindsey Jr. dead of gunshot wounds, Orlando Police Chief John Mina told reporters during a press conference.

“Our hearts go out to all of the families involved,” he said.

Tiffany Trump and Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi Biden, snap selfies in the Hamptons


Politics are their parents’ problem.

President Trump’s daughter, Tiffany Trump, spent the weekend in the Hamptons with Naomi Biden, the granddaughter of former Vice President Joe Biden. The two snapped photos together and mingled in the crowd, where Christie Brinkley’s son, Jack, was also present.

Tiffany posted a black-and-white photo of herself and Naomi on her Instagram Story, adding an emoji of interlocking hearts.

Tiffany, 24, and Naomi were mostly hanging out with designer Andrew Warren and socialite Peter Brant Jr., whose mother is Stephanie Seymour, Page Six reports.

Joe Biden and Donald Trump have been vocal about their distaste for each other: After Joe once said that back in high school, he would’ve taken Trump behind the gym and “beat the hell out of him,” Donald shot back that in that scenario, Joe would “go down fast and hard, crying all the way.”
