Poll indicates third-party vote hurting Trump more than Biden

Current polls indicate that the third-party vote is cutting deeper into Trump's support than Biden's, although the movement is within the poll's margin of error. The share of voters who say they have high interest in the 2024 election has reached a 20-year low, with majorities holding negative views of both Biden and Trump. The House passed a foreign aid package seeking to provide $60.8 billion to Ukraine, $26 billion to Israel, and $8.12 billion to Taiwan, advancing plans to ban TikTok in the US unless its China-based parent company sells it off. Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene plans to oust House Speaker Mike Johnson if he doesn't resign due to his work with Democrats on the foreign aid package.

Zelenskyy stated that the newly passed U.S. aid package will give his country a chance at victory, but he acknowledges morale problems among troops ahead of a planned Russian offensive. He also expressed doubts that Russian President Putin would ever agree to and abide by such a settlement.

For more and more people in China, coffee has become their cup of tea. Last year, China overtook the U.S. as the country with the most branded coffee shops in the world, World Coffee Portal reported. The number of outlets in China grew 58% last year, to almost 50,000, compared with about 40,000 in the U.S. The Chinese coffee market used to be dominated by foreign brands such as Starbucks, Tim Hortons of Canada, and Costa Coffee from Britain. Still, they face intensifying competition from Chinese coffee chains such as Luckin, Cotti, and Manner, as well as local independent cafes in big cities like Beijing. For coffee drinkers, this means more choice than ever, whether it's a plain Americano or a latte infused with pork flavors or Chinese liquor.
