Warren releases DNA test suggesting distant Native American ancestor

Monday 19:07 GMT

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who is gearing up for a likely 2020 presidential bid, has released a DNA test that suggests she has a distant Native American ancestor, part of an extraordinary effort to discredit President Trump and others who have questioned her claims about her heritage.

The DNA analysis, by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor, concludes that “the vast majority” of Warren’s ancestry is European but that “the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor in the individual’s pedigree, likely in the range of 6-10 generations ago.”

Brexit Talks Stall Ahead of Key Summit

Monday 20:02 GMT

Negotiations over Britain’s departure from the European Union suffered a setback Sunday as the two sides failed to resolve differences, chiefly over how to avoid the re-emergence of a physical border in Ireland.

The failure to bridge those differences during an unscheduled visit to Brussels Sunday by U.K. Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab slims the odds of a deal this week. The setback is likely to reawaken concerns of a no-deal Brexit, and raises the question of whether the two sides have the political space to solve the thorniest problems, of which the Irish border is paramount.

Oil prices moved higher in choppy action on Monday, feeding off a growing feud between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia over a missing journalist.

In addition, an editorial by Saudi-owned Al Arabiya channel’s general manager Turki Aldakhil on Sunday warned that any sanctions imposed on the country could push oil prices to $100, $200 or even double that amount. “Another geopolitical hot spot for the U.S. administration to navigate but this one extremely testy given that President Trump has been pressuring Saudi to up supply to counter the U.S.-led Iran oil sanction,” said Stephen Innes, head of trading in the Asia Pacific for OANDA, in a note to clients.
