As Rex Tillerson works diplomatic channels on the North Korea crisis, the president tweets that his secretary of state is “wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man.”

The worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history prompts a global response. World leaders send their condolences and many again ask why the U.S. cannot seem to do anything to resolve its gun violence problem. Australia offers to help and says it is time for America to “get real.”

What’s at stake for American credibility overseas?

Plus, the independence struggle for Catalans and Kurds, Iranian compliance with the nuclear deal and an ambush of American troops in Niger.
