President Trump told reporters on Monday that he probably would not have a meeting with Vladimir Putin in Paris next week, but that they would meet at the G20 summit in Argentina later this year.

Why it matters: In late October, National Security Adviser John Bolton said that Trump and Putin would meet in Paris during the 100th anniversary of the armistice ending World War I. The last time Trump met with Putin, he was widely criticized for flattering Putin and for saying that he didn't see "any reason" for Russia to interfere in the U.S. elections. Trump also said that he will announce his new UN ambassador by the end of this week.

A fresh Joe Biden ad, "New Start," signals an effort by his campaign to make unity a central theme, underscoring a new passage in his stump speech that says he won't be a president just for Democrats but for all Americans.

What he's saying: The ad — which began Friday night, and is a follow-up to "Fresh Start" — draws from a Biden speech earlier in the week in Manitowoc, Wisconsin:

President Trump is preparing to nominate federal appeals court Judge Amy Coney Barrett of Indiana, a favorite of both the social conservative base and Republican elected officials, to succeed Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Republican sources tell Axios.

Why it matters: Barrett would push the already conservative court further and harder to the right, for decades to come, on the most important issues in American politics — from abortion to the limits of presidential power. If confirmed, she would give conservatives a 6-3 majority on the high court.
