ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Turkey’s lira briefly slipped on Friday after U.S. lawmakers included mandatory Turkish sanctions in a defence spending bill that moves Washington a step closer to punishing its NATO ally for buying Russian S-400 missile defences last year. U.S. President Donald Trump, who is set to step down next month, has said he will veto the bill over separate provisions. Sanctions could harm a Turkish economy already struggling with a coronavirus-induced slowdown, double-digit inflation and badly depleted foreign reserves. The defence bill includes sanctions under the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), which are designed in part to deter cooperation with Russia. “If Trump chooses from among the lighter sanctions I think given the global risk appetite we still can see a benign performance in the lira,” said one Turkish trader.

“First the pandemic, and then the hurricane ... we have no money for our children,” he said on the journey north. Back-to-back hurricanes Eta and Iota internally displaced more than half a million people in Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua, according to International Organization for Migration data. On the election campaign trail, Biden promised a $4 billion plan to address underlying factors driving migration from Central America. MASS UNEMPLOYMENTEven before the storms, Central American nations were reeling from economic crises brought on by the pandemic and mass unemployment led to a steady increase in migration north. Other migrants bypassed the storm shelters, where aid workers fear the overcrowded conditions could lead to a new spike in coronavirus cases, and hit the road immediately.

WASHINGTON—The U.S. trade deficit widened in October as exports and imports rose for a fifth straight month, reflecting a continued recovery in global commerce from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. The U.S. posted a deficit of $63.1 billion in October, compared with $62.1 billion in September, the Commerce Department said Friday. Economists polled by The Wall Street Journal had forecast a $64.8 billion deficit in October. Exports rose 2.2% to $182.0 billion from the previous month, while imports increased 2.1% to $245.1 billion. Trade may start slowing again as winter approaches and governments impose renewed restrictions in response to a surge in coronavirus cases.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. sold $175 billion in weapons to foreign governments in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, Pentagon and State Department officials announced Friday. Sales of U.S. military equipment to foreign governments in the prior fiscal year totaled $170 billion. In 2017, the Trump administration rolled out an executive order dubbed, "Buy American and Hire American," in which the president called on foreign governments to buy more American products, namely U.S.-built weapons systems.

The poor, in particular, have been more at risk than the rich, according to analyses of those who have been sickened by the virus or succumbed to it. And new studies have suggested that the reason the virus has affected Black and Latino communities more than white neighborhoods is tied to social and environmental factors, not any innate vulnerability. “Neighborhoods matter,” said Molly Scannell Bryan, a research assistant professor at the Institute for Minority Health Research at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Some researchers suggest that one explanation is that men are generally in poorer health than women, more likely to smoke or have heart disease. By early December, at least 135,000 men had died from the virus in the United States, compared with at least 114,000 women, according to federal data.

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration will temporarily draw down staff from the American Embassy in Baghdad as the fast-approaching anniversary of the U.S. strike on Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani brings concerns of retaliation, two U.S. officials told NBC News on Wednesday. The State Department did not confirm the reduction, telling NBC News that the department does not comment on the details of staffing adjustments. His death prompted outrage in Iran, which retaliated with strikes against U.S. troops in Iraq. American troops left in 2011, but they returned in 2014 after the Islamic State militant group overran large parts of the country. In May 2019, after a series of rocket attacks were launched toward the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, the State Department ordered the departure of "nonemergency" personnel from Iraq.

Chinese money brokers based in Mexico “have come to dominate international money laundering markets,” U.S. prosecutors said in a Sept. 24 sentencing memorandum for Gan’s case. Reuters spoke to more than a dozen law enforcement officials, diplomats, lawyers and sources familiar with the Gan case or Chinese money laundering techniques. The U.S. Department of the Treasury and Europol, the European Union’s law enforcement arm, have warned about the expanding web of Chinese crime groups laundering drug money. “It’s the most sophisticated form of money laundering that’s ever existed,” one of the U.S. sources familiar with the investigation said. That allows the Chinese money brokers, in turn, to charge traffickers nominal fees of just a few percentage points.

WASHINGTON—The U.S. is increasing the portion of the spying budget devoted to China by nearly one-fifth this year, U.S. officials said on Thursday, reflecting rising concern over what the Trump administration says is a top economic, security and counterintelligence threat from Beijing. While the precise amounts are classified, the officials said spending on China is being boosted across the roughly $85 billion annual intelligence budget to glean secrets from the country, analyze its current actions and predict its future course. “We have shifted resources in the FY21 budget to increase China spending by nearly 20 percent,” the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in a statement, referring to the government’s fiscal year 2021, which began Oct. 1. In an interview, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe said the shift involves “money and manpower,” and suggested that some spy-agency analysts focused on counterterrorism would be refocused on China. “When the evidence is so clear, and increasingly clear, that China and China alone can compete with us in all spaces, when we’ve looked at all of the different threat streams... the resources needed to be shifted,” Mr. Ratcliffe said.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday delivered a blow to California Governor Gavin Newsom's pandemic-related ban on indoor religious services, siding with a church that defied the policy and challenged it as unconstitutional religious discrimination. The decision followed a similar action by the justices on Nov. 25 that backed Christian and Jewish houses of worship that challenged New York state restrictions in coronavirus hot spots. The justices, with no noted dissents, set aside a lower court ruling that rejected a challenge to Newsom's policy by Harvest Rock Church Inc, which has several campuses in the state, and Harvest International Ministries Inc, an association of churches. The justices directed the lower court to reconsider the case in light of their ruling in the New York case.
