Michelle Obama unseated Hillary Clinton as the most admired woman in the U.S., claiming the title alongside her husband, former President Barack Obama, who has remained the most admired man for 11 straight years, according to Gallup's annual poll.

The big picture: Clinton held the title of most admired woman for 17 consecutive years, but this year was surpassed by both Obama and Oprah Winfrey. President Trump came in second place for the fourth year in a row, marking only the 13th time — and Trump's second — that a sitting president didn't top the list since its inception in 1946.

  1. Barack Obama (19%)
  2. Donald Trump (13%)
  3. George W. Bush (2%)
  4. Pope Francis (2%)
  5. Bill Gates (1%)
  6. Bernie Sanders (1%)
  7. Bill Clinton (1%)
  8. Dalai Lama (1%)

Riot police clashed with protesters in Belarus' capital Minsk after a government exit poll predicted Sunday that President Aleksander Lukashenko, an authoritarian who has ruled the Eastern European country since 1994, had overwhelmingly beaten a pro-democracy opposition candidate.

Why it matters: It's a precarious moment for the former Soviet republic, where decades of repression and a complete disregard for the coronavirus pandemic now threaten to topple "Europe's last dictator."

Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai arrested under national security law

Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Jimmy Lai has been arrested for "collusion with foreign powers" and the offices of his newspaper raided, said Mark Simon, an executive at the tycoon's media firm Next Digital on Monday.

Why it matters: He was arrested under the new national security law that gives Beijing more powers over the former British colony. Lai is the most prominent person arrested under the law — which prompted the U.S. to sanction Chinese officials, including Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam, over Beijing's efforts to strip the territory of its autonomy.
