WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House's top economic adviser has acknowledged that U.S. consumers and businesses pay the tariffs that the Trump administration has imposed on billions of dollars of Chinese goods. President Trump himself still insists, incorrectly, that China pays. The head of the president's National Economic Council, Larry Kudlow, found himself challenged on the topic of tariffs while appearing on "Fox News Sunday."

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Democratic presidential candidates are tapping California for political donations, challenging Sen. Kamala Harris in her home state as she too looks for a boost. The nation's most populous state became a bigger player than usual after moving its 2020 primary from June to March, giving voters a strong voice in the Democratic race. As one of the state's two U.S. senators, Harris is positioned to capitalize on California's primary at a make-or-break stage in the campaign.

PAGO PAGO, American Samoa (AP) — A North Korean cargo ship that was seized by U.S. authorities is about to undergo inspections in the port city of Pago Pago, the capital of American Samoa. U.S. officials made the announcement of the ship's seizure last week shortly after North Korea fired two suspected short-range missiles toward the sea. It was the second weapons launch in five days and a possible signal that stalled talks over its nuclear weapons program are in trouble.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The U.S. has issued a new alert to maritime traffic over alleged "acts of sabotage" of ships off the coast of the United Arab Emirates amid heightened regional tensions between America and Iran. The U.S. Maritime Administration, which stressing the incidents had not been confirmed, warned shippers to exercise caution when traveling past Fujairah, the strategically located port city on the Gulf of Oman.

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Filipinos have begun voting in elections highlighted by a showdown between President Rodrigo Duterte's allies who aim to dominate the Senate and an opposition fighting for checks and balances under a leader they regard as a looming dictator. The most crucial race is for half the seats in the 24- member Senate, where the opposition has been blocking proposed bills they fear would undermine civil liberties.
