Trump tweeted Turkey's president told him there was minor sniper and mortar fire but reports from the region suggest it was more serious than that.        Tulsi Gabbard is calling out Hilliary Clinton. The two have been going back-and-forth since Clinton suggested Russia is grooming Gabbard for a third-party run to champion their interests. Gabbard responded by telling Clinton to not hide "cowardly" behind her proxies and to "join the race."        As a deadline looms, five pharma companies are closing in on a 50-billion dollar settlement in the opioid crisis. If the CEOs from the top three distributors and two drug makers fail to agree by Monday, they'll be in a Cleveland courtroom for trial.       More than two-million people were in the dark last week in California because of power shutoffs but next time, it could be 16-million.

The system is gaining in popularity because of its transparency.        Meghan Markle says it's been a real struggle to be a newlywed, a new mom and the American-born duchess of Sussex. She said dealing with all that media attention has been really challenging and that she and her husband, Prince Harry, are suing some tabloid newspapers in England.
