That's especially true for millennials, for which student-loan debt has been one of many balls in a long-time juggling act of financial challenges. Many have been hoping they wouldn't have any student-loan debt at all come fall — or at least, a much lighter load. And the generation has dealt with all of this while shouldering the lion's share of student-loan debt. Student debt has left a stain on millennials' adulthoodForty-three million borrowers currently share the $1.7 trillion of national student-loan debt. Biden has canceled billions of student loans that are only 0.2% of the totalNow, Biden has taken some steps toward student-loan debt assistance.

The Trump-era Justice Department requested data from Apple, Google, and Microsoft on his rivals. Apple on Friday told CNBC that the grand jury subpoena included a gag order, keeping Apple from telling customers about the requests. Press Secretary Jen Psaki in a June 5 statement said the White House hadn't been made aware of the gag order. The spokesperson added: "In this case, we were prevented from notifying the customer for more than two years because of a gag order. As soon as the gag order expired, we notified the customer who told us they were a congressional staffer."

The Biden administration is very unlikely to step in and prevent the unemployment aid losses. Mississippi, Missouri, Alaska, and Iowa are the first four Republican-led states to scrap their federal unemployment insurance programs. The unemployment aid was extended until early September under President Joe Biden's coronavirus relief law enacted three months ago. The president said last week that it "makes sense" for federal unemployment aid to expire on Labor Day. Then White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Republican governors have "every right" to cancel the administration's jobless aid programs.

“It’s a problem Facebook has known about for many years.”Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said that the company prohibits "content that offers to provide or facilitate human smuggling. He added that Facebook permits content related to seeking asylum and that it had consulted with the United Nations on its content policies around human smuggling. The policies draw on the U.N. definition of human smuggling as “the procurement or facilitation of illegal entry into a state across international borders” that doesn’t necessarily involve coercion or force. Since 2015, researchers and journalists have regularly identified pages dedicated to human smuggling on Facebook.

“In international relations, all politics is personal,” Biden said during a visit to South Korea in 2013. Just after touching down in the U.K. Wednesday, Biden told service members at a Royal Air Force station in Mildenhall that he’d visited “well over 100 countries” as a senator and vice president. Biden offered: “Possibilities.”“Personal relationships are the only vehicle by which you build trust,” Biden told Xi two years later when he returned for more meetings in Beijing. There’s a risk, though, of focusing on the personal at the expense of the substance. But Biden has often told the story of his last-known face-to-face meeting with Putin, telling him bluntly that he “has no soul.”“We understand each other,” Biden says Putin replied.

Some officials were "perplexed" by her comments on the border and feared it might overshadow the trip, per CNN. Some White House officials are "perplexed" by Kamala Harris' comments in which she defended not yet visiting the US-Mexico border, and worry that it might overshadow her first foreign trip as vice president, CNN's Jeremy Diamond reported. "We are going to the border, we've been to the border," Harris said in the interview, which was aired Tuesday. When Holt said, "You haven't been to the border," Harris responded: "And I haven't been to Europe." Shortly after the speech, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York slammed Harris' comments, saying they were "disappointing to see."

Biden revokes and replaces Trump executive orders that banned TikTok

President Donald Trump has agreed to a deal in which Oracle and Walmart will take a minority stake in a U.S.-headquartered company called TikTok Global. Biden revoked and replaced the three executive orders by former President Donald Trump which sought to ban transactions with TikTok and WeChat by American businesses. One of the orders also sough to ban TikTok, resulting in a prolonged court battle. Under the previous administration, TikTok remained in a precarious position as Trump sought to ban the app unless it sold to an American company. The Biden administration had asked the court to postpone action around the government dispute with TikTok over the ban as it reviewed the situation.

Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) departs after attending a bipartisan work group meeting on an infrastructure bill at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., June 8, 2021. Evelyn Hockstein | ReutersBipartisan groups in Congress will try to craft an infrastructure bill after talks between President Joe Biden and Republicans collapsed. Bipartisan negotiators in the House and Senate have not come near a consensus on how to pay for infrastructure investments. A group of Democratic and GOP senators and the bipartisan House Problem Solvers Caucus are trying to put together possible compromises. The Democratic-led House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee will also consider a five-year surface transportation funding bill on Wednesday.

Biden ended infrastructure negotiations with Sen. Shelley Moore Capito on Tuesday. Capito later said she was "disappointed" at how things ended and Biden kept "moving goalposts" on her. But her GOP group barely budged on their offer and refused to raise taxes, which Biden proposed. After nearly six weeks of back and forth between President Joe Biden and West Virginia Sen. Shelley Moore Capito on infrastructure, Biden ended the negotiations on Tuesday after failing to come to an agreement. Capito and the group of Republicans first brought Biden a $568 billion infrastructure offer, which was significantly smaller than the $2.25 trillion infrastructure plan he proposed.

Weeks of negotiations between the White House and Republicans failed to bring the two parties close to a deal. A White House official said they asked Republicans whether they could raise their offer by a significant amount, and they couldn’t. The White House is reviewing another bipartisan proposal from the House Problem Solvers Caucus, according to a source familiar with discussions. But questions persist about the viability of a bipartisan infrastructure plan. The bill is just one part of $4 trillion in infrastructure spending Democrats want but is expected to be the base of the House's infrastructure bill.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Treasury Department has asked law enforcement authorities to investigate the disclosure of tax records cited in a media report that showed that some of America’s richest people paid little to no income taxes, U.S. officials said on Tuesday. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki holds a press briefing at the White House in Washington, U.S., June 8, 2021. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that “any unauthorized disclosure of confidential government information” is illegal. Treasury Department spokeswoman Lily Adams said in an emailed statement that the matter has been referred to the FBI, federal prosecutors and two internal Treasury Department watchdogs, “all of whom have independent authority to investigate.”The IRS, part of the Treasury Department, is the nation’s tax-collecting agency and many tax records are considered confidential documents. ProPublica described the records as “confidential” and did not disclose how it obtained them.

WASHINGTON—President Biden called off an effort to reach an infrastructure compromise with a group of Senate Republicans after progress stalled, shifting his focus to a separate set of negotiations with a group of Republicans and Democrats in an effort to salvage a bipartisan deal on the issue. Weeks of discussions between Mr. Biden and a group of six Republicans had left the two sides still deeply divided on the size of an infrastructure package and how to pay for it. She also said the White House felt its efforts in talks to close the spending gap with the GOP stance hadn’t been fully reciprocated. Republicans, meanwhile, said Mr. Biden hadn’t shown enough willingness to narrow the scope to more traditional infrastructure projects and scale down the cost accordingly. They had also favored user fees, which the White House rejected, rather than higher taxes to pay for new spending.

Live Live Updates: Infrastructure Negotiations May Be Nearing the End “We’re going to keep talking, but I’m not coming back with anything in the next 24 hours,” the top Republican negotiator, Senator Shelley Moore Capito, said of the significant gap between her party and President Biden’s $1 trillion plan. Capito says she won’t have a new infrastructure offer for Biden when the two speak. “We made a good robust effort — biggest infrastructure package ever with pay-fors that we delineated,” Ms. Capito said on Monday. Staff at the embassy suffered unexplained health incidents that many officials believe are attacks.

New York (CNN Business) The Biden administration said Tuesday it is investigating how tax information from several of the world's richest people -- including Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Warren Buffett -- was leaked to the public. "The unauthorized disclosure of confidential government information is illegal," said Treasury spokeswoman Lily Adams. The investigation comes after a report that showed new information from a trove of never-before-seen IRS records. Earlier Tuesday, ProPublica reported on exclusively obtained IRS documents which showed how the likes of Bezos, Musk, Buffett, Bill Gates, George Soros, Mark Zuckerberg and Michael Bloomberg have legally avoided paying income tax. Psaki also reiterated the Biden administration's stance on having wealthy Americans pay more taxes to fund the President's proposals.
