While the White House was dealing with the news, a shooter opened fire in the Mayfair Mall in Wisconsin, injuring at least eight people. The shooter is still at large. Outside of the US, Mike Pompeo will be meeting the Taliban negotiators in Qatar a day after he became the first US official to visit the West Bank in Israel.
