In other news, Ireland and the European Union have rejected Boris Johnson's ostensibly 'final' Brexit proposal, saying that his proposal is 'not even remotely acceptable.'

Meanwhile, the United States is withholding dues from the UN's International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) because the agency needs stronger protections for whistleblowers.

“We expect a lot from ICAO. We expect ethical and efficient management,” a U.S. State Department official told Reuters. “We expect transparent and trustworthy governance. And we expect accountability for performance and conduct.”

Finally, Trump openly called on China to investigate Joe Biden today.
