North Korea might suspend denuclearization talks with the U.S. unless the administration changes its stance following last month's summit in Hanoi, the Washington Post reports.

After two gaffes and a low blow from President Trump questioning his faith, Joe Biden spent Thursday evening off his own message — clarifying comments and responding to attacks.

Why it matters: Biden’s responses reflect what we could see a lot more of in the next few months — cringeworthy comments and Trump smears, smacking into each other and pulling the Democrat off course.
