The United Kingdom's former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson rebuked Prime Minister Theresa May in his Daily Telegraph column, saying she's a "chicken" whose government "blinked" in Brexit negotiations with the European Union.

"We are not leaving this Friday because the government has chickened out. Extend the implementation period to the end of 2021 if necessary ... but come out of the EU now — without the [Irish] backstop. It is time for the PM to channel the spirit of Moses in Exodus, and say to Pharaoh in Brussels – let my people go."

Why it matters: Britain was supposed to exit the EU Friday, but the European Council gave it a Brexit extension to April 12.

Between the lines: May faces pressure to resign over Brexit. The Sunday Times reported 11 ministers planned to tell her a caretaker leader should take over, though 2 ministers linked to the report said they backed her, according to the BBC. She met with senior Conservative Party members to discuss Brexit Sunday afternoon — including Johnson.

What's next? The U.K. Parliament is due to hold several votes on Brexit this week, including on May's withdrawal deal, opting for a no deal and whether there should be a second referendum.

President Trump's suburbs

President Trump cast an outdated vision of "the 'suburban housewife'" as he swiped this week at Joe Biden's newly minted running mate Kamala Harris — building on his months-long play to drive a wedge through battleground-state suburbs by reframing white voters' expectations.

The big picture: As he struggles to find an attack that will stick against the Biden campaign, Trump for a while now has been stoking fears of lawless cities and an end to what he's called the “Suburban Lifestyle Dream.” It’s a playbook from the ‘70s and ‘80s — but the suburbs have changed a lot since then.

Trump tightens screws on ByteDance to sell Tiktok

President Trump added more pressure Friday night on China-based TikTok parent ByteDance to exit the U.S., ordering it to divest all assets related to the U.S. operation of TikTok within 90 days.

Between the lines: The order means ByteDance must be wholly disentangled from TikTok in the U.S. by November. Trump had previously ordered TikTok banned if ByteDance hadn't struck a deal within 45 days. The new order likely means ByteDance has just another 45 days after that to fully close the deal, one White House source told Axios.
