The News Roundup For June 8, 2018

Trade news dominated the headlines this week, as world leaders prepared for what could be an "awkward" G-7 summit, as President Trump meets with the leaders of nations stung by U.S. tariffs.

The president had a busy few days of meetings. He talked with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe ahead of next week's summit in Singapore with North Korean leaders.

The week began, though, with primaries in several states as Democrats try to set themselves up to retake the House of Representatives in November.

These are only a few of the stories we got to in this week's News Roundup.
