  1. Pence’s Viaje, Bolt’s Painful Exit and White House Aide’s Shout-Down 

    The Week Ahead: The PGA Championships, with American Kevin Kisner holding a slim lead, conclude Sunday in Charlotte, N.C. Also today, Vice President Mike Pence begins a five-day tour of Latin America. And on Monday, British cybersecurity expert Marcus Hutchins, lauded for disabling the worldwide WannaCry ransomware attack, appears in a Milwaukee court on charges that he created the Kronos malware that steals bank account passwords.

A black journalists’ convention proved an unfriendly venue for White House aide Omarosa Manigault when questions about President Trump’s encouragement of police brutality devolved into a shouting match. And South American nations meeting for trade talks have condemned President Trump’s suggestion that the U.S. might intervene militarily in Venezuela.
