Trump thanks farmers for backing him through China trade war
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — President Donald Trump took a victory lap as he addressed farmers about a pair of new U.S. trade agreements with its North American neighbors and with China. When Trump spoke to the American Farm Bureau Federation's convention last year, he urged farmers to have his back. They'd been suffering financially in the fallout from his China trade war. Trump's follow-up speech Sunday in Austin, Texas, gave him a chance to make the case that he kept two of his trade promises. Trump signed a preliminary trade deal with China last week. He's expected to sign the North American trade agreement soon. Trump told the convention: “We did it.”

On the edge of America, census begins in a tiny Alaska town
TOKSOOK BAY, Alaska (AP) — The 2020 census in the U.S. will begin this week in a tiny community in Alaska. It has started in rural Alaska ever since the U.S. purchased the territory from Russia in 1867. This year, the first people will be counted in Toksook Bay, a city of 661 on the Bering Sea. Once the spring thaw hits, the town empties as many residents leave to hunt and fish. The mail service is spotty and the internet connectivity unreliable, which makes door-to-door surveying important. For those reasons, they have to start early here.
