US and IranNew US sanctions on Iran are set to be issued today, according to a weekend tweet from President Trump. The President didn’t offer up any details on the sanctions, but he did say he believes more sanctions will force Iran to the bargaining table with the US. The world is also still waiting to see what kind of retaliation, if any, the US will dish out after Iran shot down a US military drone last week. Trump ordered a retaliatory strike on Iran late last week, only to call it off at the last minute.Trump: Let's make Iran great againTrump: Let's make Iran great againTrump: Let's make Iran great againJUST WATCHEDTrump: Let’s make Iran great againReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

He’s also the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and he had to focus on his day job over the weekend. Buttigieg pulled himself off the campaign trail to focus on the fatal shooting of a black man by South Bend police. The shooting has inflamed already simmering racial tensions in the city. Buttigieg took part in an emotional town hall last night to talk about the shooting, where angry residents let him have it. He kept his emotions in check (though he was frustrated about being interrupted). He also said he would ask the Justice Department to conduct an investigation into the shooting. How Buttigieg handles this racially-charged incident is important because lack of support from black voters is one of the drags on his campaign right now.Tense exchange from Buttigieg's South Bend town hallTense exchange from Buttigieg's South Bend town hallTense exchange from Buttigieg's South Bend town hallJUST WATCHEDTense exchange from Buttigieg’s South Bend town hallReplayMore Videos …MUST WATCH

Vittorio Caruso, 56, of Glen Cove, Long Island, died last week, according to family members. Caruso’s sister-in-law said he died after suffering respiratory distress and a possible heart attack. The spate of deaths have some Americans wondering whether they should cancel their upcoming vacations to the country. Dominican officials say the deaths are isolated incidents. CNN has previously reported the deaths could be related to alcohol. Yesterday, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana said it was removing liquor dispensers from guest room minibars. The resort said the decision was made independently and not as a result of two deaths that occurred at its property.
