WASHINGTON (AP) — A top House Democrat has issued subpoenas for six years of President Donald Trump's tax returns, giving Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig a deadline of next Friday to deliver them. Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal issued the subpoenas Friday, days after Mnuchin refused to comply with demands to turn over Trump's returns.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Trade talks between the U.S. and China have broken up with no agreement, hours after President Donald Trump more than doubled tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese imports. Trump asserted on Twitter that there was "no need to rush" to get a deal between the world's two biggest economies and later added that the tariffs "may or may not be removed depending on what happens with respect to future negotiations."

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó wants to jumpstart his movement to oust Nicolas Maduro following last week's failed military uprising. In an interview with The Associated Press, he promised to persevere in the face of a deepening crackdown by Maduro's administration. But analysts say Guaidó may be running out of options as people are going to be too afraid to follow him out onto the streets.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A federal judge has struck down a Kentucky abortion law aimed at banning a common second-trimester procedure to end pregnancies. U.S. District Judge Joseph H. McKinley Jr. ruled Friday the law would create a "substantial obstacle" to a woman's right to an abortion, violating constitutionally protected privacy rights. Kentucky's only abortion clinic challenged the 2018 law when it was signed by the state's anti-abortion governor, Republican Matt Bevin.

HAVANA (AP) — The Cuban government says it will begin widespread rationing of chicken, eggs, rice, beans, soap and other basic products in the face of a grave economic crisis. Commerce Minister Betsy Díaz Velázquez told the state-run Cuban News Agency that various forms of rationing would be employed in order to deal with shortages of staple foods. She blamed the hardening of the U.S. trade embargo by the Trump administration. Economists give equal or greater blame to a plunge in aid from Venezuela.
