Domino's Pizza CEO Patrick Doyle, who is set to retire in June from his role, told TheStreet that in about three to five years at the earliest he expects driverless cars and voice orders to shift the way the world orders pizza:

"We have been investing in natural voice for ordering for a few years. We rolled that out in our own apps before Amazon launched Alexa and Alphabet launched Google Home...[and] we are making investments...to understand how consumers will want to interact with autonomous vehicles and pizza delivery" — Patrick Doyle, Domino's Pizza CEO

Ford's role: While Doyle said Domino's won't be making cars itself, the company has been working with Ford on the future of delivery food. "We are in southeast Michigan, we are blessed to be in the mobility capital of the world...We have already partnered to build vehicles that are task specific for delivering Domino's pizzas."

The U.S. and Israel will announce tomorrow that they are expanding three agreements on scientific cooperation to include Israeli settlements in the West Bank, Israeli and U.S. officials tell me.

Why it matters: This is a substantial policy shift for the U.S., which did not previously allow its taxpayers' money to be spent in the Israeli settlements.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) expressed no regrets about Judge Amy Coney Barrett's controversial confirmation, telling Politico in an interview that he believes the decision to place her on the Supreme Court just a week before the election will help Republicans retain the Senate.

Why it matters: With a week to go until Election Day, many Republicans are concerned that President Trump's unpopularity could cost them the Senate. McConnell has long viewed the transformation of the federal judiciary through the confirmation of young conservative judges as his defining legacy.
