Elizabeth Warren has a plan for that. And that. And that as well. On Wednesday, the Massachusetts senator unveiled the 12th major policy proposal of her presidential run, a $100bn plan to combat the opioid crisis.

Warren’s reputation as the ideas generator has gained widespread attention. But she is not the only candidate for the Democratic nomination who has white papers to flaunt.

In the last few days, Bernie Sanders has rolled out a package of proposals to “rebuild rural America” and released legislation to cap credit card interest rates at 15%. Kamala Harris has come out with a bill to financially assist public defenders. Cory Booker has proposed sweeping reforms to the nation’s gun laws.

Joe Biden has opened up a 32-point lead over his nearest rival for the Democrat nomination for the presidency in 2020, according to a new poll.

Donald Trump’s businesses lost a total of more than $1 billion from 1985 to 1994, according to the New York Times, which said it obtained printouts from Trump’s official Internal Revenue Service tax transcripts.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin have addressed a wide range of topics in a telephone conversation on May 3 — their first contact since the G20 summit in Argentina last year.

The topics included nuclear arms control, Venezuela, Ukraine, North Korea, and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.

Trump, speaking to reporters as he met in the Oval Office with Slovak Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini, said, “We’re talking about a nuclear agreement where we make less and they make less and maybe where we get rid of some of the tremendous firepower that we have right now.”

Trump said China during trade talks had “felt very strongly” about joining the United States and Russia in limiting nuclear arms.
