Trump trashes globalization in Pennsylvania speech

Speaking at a factory in Pennsylvania Tuesday, Donald Trump slammed U.S. trade policies he said encouraged globalization and took away American manufacturing jobs. He also promised to usher in a U.S. economic resurgence, along with killing the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal and renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement. “Our politicians have aggressively pursued a policy of globalization — moving our jobs, our wealth and our factories to Mexico and overseas,” he said, reading from prepared remarks and using teleprompters. “Globalization has made the financial elite who donate to politicians very, very wealthy. I used to be one of them. Hate to say it, but I used to be one of them.” Trump repeatedly said “nothing is going to change” under a Clinton presidency. “The inner cities will remain poor, the factories will remain closed,” Trump. “The special interests will remain firmly in control.”


Winona Ryder: Johnny Depp was never abusive

Forty-four-year-old actress Winona Ryder said in an interview with Time magazine that she had a different experience with ex Johnny Depp, who has been accused of being abusive towards his estranged wife, Amber Heard. “I mean, he was never, never that way towards me,” Ryder said. “Never abusive at all towards me. I only know him as a really good, loving, caring guy who is very, very protective of the people that he loves.” Ryder said she never witnessed Depp being violent towards anyone, and was weary of commenting on the issue because “it’s like anybody who says anything about it is a victim-blamer.” She said she found the allegations “shocking” and said, “I don’t know what happened. I’m not calling anyone a liar.”

Senate to vote on rescue package for Puerto Rico

The Senate is ready to begin voting on a rescue package for Puerto Rico, who is about to default on a $2 billion debt payment. Although the measure faced some opposition from both Republicans and Democrats, both parties agreed to complete it by July 1st. “Failure is really not an option,” Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters. The proposed bill would oversee Puerto Rico’s finances, possibly supervise some debt restructuring, and would require the territory to plan and fund public pensions. “The fact that this works and it gives Puerto Rico the ability to move forward is just an overwhelming reason to pass this in a timeframe that prevents the descent into chaos,” Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said.
