US President Donald Trump unveiled a peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians on Tuesday. A White House ceremony was attended by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who said it was a "historic day." Palestinian leaders had rejected Trump's long-delayed plan even before its official release, saying his administration was biased toward Israel. And, Chinese leader Xi Jinping vowed to defeat the coronavirus, which has killed more than 100 people. But as The World's Patrick Winn reports, the government's efforts to contain the epidemic are hampered by the public's lack of trust. Also, the US Supreme Court is giving the Trump administration greater leeway to refuse green card applicants.
