French officials are investigating if financier Jeffrey Epstein may have committed sex crimes at his high-end Paris apartment. Prosecutors announced today that after sharing information with U.S. officials, they have opened up an investigation. The accused sex trafficker killed himself by hanging inside his Manhattan jail cell earlier this month.       President Trump is ramping up the trade war with China. Soon after the markets closed with the Dow dropping more than 600 points, Trump tweeted he will increase tariffs on 300 billion dollars worth of Chinese goods from 10 to 15 percent starting on September 1st. Trump's tweets earlier in the day contributed to the bad day on Wall Street. He ordered U.S. companies to quit doing business with China.       North Korea is testing missiles again. U.S. military are confirming a Japanese report that two more missiles were launched today and landed in the Sea of Japan. It is the seventh time since May that North Korea has tested its missile system.        President Trump wants to keep blocking some Twitter followers. His lawyers filed court papers today seeking a hearing by the full 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York on his right to block people from his personal account. A three-judge panel of that court ruled that since Trump uses his personal account for government business, he cannot block anyone.       Same-sex couples who were denied marriage licenses in Kentucky can now sue Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis. A federal court ruled today that Davis can be personally sued for her refusal to issue licenses. Davis claims that she can't be sued because she refused licenses to everyone, including opposite-sex couples.       Many U.S. churches plan to ring their bells at 3 p.m. Sunday to mark the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first African slaves in the English colonies. The bells will ring for four minutes, one minute for every century of slavery in America.
