----------------------------------

WASHINGTON/POLITICS

----------------------------------

TRUMP-NORTH KOREA — President Donald Trump declares on Twitter that there was "no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea," a bold and questionable claim following his summit with leader Kim Jong Un that produced few guarantees on how and when Pyongyang would disarm. SENT: 1100 words, photo.

TRUMP-SUMMIT-FACT CHECK — Despite Trump's tweet, North Korea is still believed to have more than 50 nuclear warheads. SENT: 960 words, photo.

CONGRESS-IMMIGRATION — House Republicans are considering next steps on two immigration bills after GOP leaders persuaded moderate Republicans to drop their renegade effort to force votes on legislation that would have protected young "Dreamer" immigrants with a path to citizenship. SENT: 1000 words. UPCOMING: Developing from 9 a.m. GOP meeting, 900 words by 4 p.m., photos.

TRUMP-OIL PRICES — President Trump declares that oil prices are too high and blaming a coalition of countries that control a significant portion of the world's supply of crude petroleum. SENT: 130 words.

PRIMARY RDP — President Trump is crediting his Election-Day tweet in part for the defeat of a South Carolina Republican congressman who has been critical of his administration. Trump tweeted that his advisers didn't want him to get involved in the Republican primary, thinking Rep. Mark Sanford "would easily win." But Trump says Rep. Katie Arrington "was such a good candidate, and Sanford was so bad, I had to give it a shot." SENT: 1,500 words, photos.

2018 MIDTERMS-LOYALTY — South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford's primary defeat may serve as a cautionary tale for some Republicans: Criticize Trump at your own peril. It's a powerful message that comes as Republicans are increasingly queasy about Trump's policies on trade and looking for ways to quietly object, without being labeled disloyal. UPCOMING: 790 words by 4 p.m., photos.

TRUMP-KIM SUMMIT

---------------------------------------

TRUMP-KIM SUMMIT-PYONGYANG REACTS — The news on television and the front page of the ruling Workers' Party newspaper was something North Koreans never would have imagined just months ago — their leader Kim Jong Un warmly shaking hands with President Donald Trump. One day after the meeting between Kim and Trump in Singapore, North Korea's state-run media were filled with images of its beaming leader standing as an equal on the international stage with the president of the most powerful country in the world — a reminder of just how much of a propaganda coup the North saw in the unprecedented summit. SENT: 875 words, photos.

CHINA-NORTH KOREA — The outcome of the Singapore summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was good news for one absent but key player: China. China won big at the summit after Trump made surprising pledges to suspend war games with South Korea and eventually pull U.S. troops from there. Beijing dislikes the U.S. military presence in South Korea and Japan and has urged Washington to suspend the drills that Pyongyang claims are rehearsals for invasion, in return for the North's halting of nuclear activities. SENT: 1,000 words, photos.

TRUMP IN SINGAPORE — President Trump's triumphant assertions about the success of the unprecedented Singapore summit are being met with skepticism and outright derision from critics seizing on the contradiction between his withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and his willingness to accept vague pledges from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. SENT: 779 words, photo

TRUMP-KIM-SUMMIT-TELEVISION — Made-for-TV summit puts President Trump the Showman in spotlight. SENT: 730 words.

NATIONAL

-------------

CALIFORNIA CRIME — California voters' decision to reduce penalties for drug and property crimes in 2014 contributed to a jump in car burglaries, shoplifting and other theft, researchers reported. Larcenies increased about 9 percent by 2016, or about 135 more thefts per 100,000 residents than if tougher penalties had remained, according to results of a study by the nonpartisan Public Policy Institute of California. SENT: 650 words, photos.

--------------------

INTERNATIONAL

--------------------

UNITED NATIONS-PALESTINIANS-ISRAEL — The Palestinians and their supporters are asking an emergency meeting of the U.N. General Assembly to adopt a resolution deploring what it calls Israel's "excessive use of force," particularly in Gaza. SENT: 610 words, photos. UPCOMING: Assembly convenes at 3 p.m.

YEMEN — A Saudi-led coalition backing Yemen's exiled government begins an assault on Yemen's port city of Hodeida, a crucial battle in the 3-year-old conflict that aid agencies warn could push the Arab world's poorest country into further chaos. SENT: 1,060 words, graphic.

--------------------------

BUSINESS/ECONOMY

--------------------------

FEDERAL RESERVE — The Federal Reserve is expected to modestly raise its benchmark rate for the second time this year when its latest policy meeting ends Wednesday afternoon. It will also update its forecasts for the economy and interest rates, and Chairman Jerome Powell will hold a news conference. SENT: 730 words, photos. UPCOMING: 130 words at 2 p.m. when embargo lifts on the Fed statement, then expanded.
