WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican senators are declaring deep opposition to President Donald Trump's threatened tariffs on all goods coming into the U.S. from Mexico.

Still, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says, "There is not much support in my conference for tariffs, that's for sure."

HOUSTON (AP) — Representatives of a top leader of the U.S. Catholic Church say he acted "swiftly and justly" to the allegations made by a woman who says his former deputy lured her into a sexual relationship.

MIAMI (AP) — The inaction of a Florida deputy at the scene of the 2018 Parkland high school shooting that killed 17 people has resulted in his arrest on 11 criminal charges. Scott Peterson was the school resource officer at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School but surveillance video shows he never entered the building during the shooting. Peterson has been charged with child neglect, culpable negligence and perjury. The charges follow a 14-month investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

UNDATED (AP) — The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped more than 500 points Tuesday as investors welcomed signals that the Federal Reserve may cut interest rates to help buttress U.S. economic growth in the face of escalating trade wars. Technology companies led broad gains for U.S. stocks as the benchmark S&P 500 index notched its best day since early January. The Federal Reserve chairman signaled the central bank could cut rates if multiple U.S. trade conflicts threaten the nation's economic expansion.
