Here's what to know today.

Biden campaign zeroes in on debate strategy: 'Let Trump be Trump'

When President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump take the debate stage at the end of the month, the Biden campaign has one prevailing strategy in mind: “Let Trump be Trump.”

In recent months, Trump's criminal trial has taken the spotlight, and Biden has struggled in most battleground elections. But come June 27, Team Biden is betting that the unfiltered former president will reveal extreme leanings and be a less stable candidate than he was four years ago.

Democrats are looking to the first debate between the two candidates in 2020 to see how Biden can benefit from Trump's actions. Like when Trump went after Biden's son Hunter (which Biden flipped to his advantage), or instead of condemning white supremacist groups, Trump told one to “stand back and stand up.” Be done.”

A campaign official said Biden will likely make Trump obsessed with vengeance and revenge and remind Americans of political violence on Jan. 6, 2021. Trump's team has cast Biden as an incompetent politician whose leadership embroiled America in two foreign wars.

While Biden is trying to hang on to the presidency, Democrats say that in the end, it is Trump who has the most to lose.

The Hunter Biden firearms case is now in the hands of a jury.

Jury deliberations in Hunter Biden's federal criminal trial will resume today after the defense rested its case, prosecutors called one witness and both sides. He gave his closing arguments. In a firearms case

As of yesterday, the question of whether or not Hunter Biden would testify in his own defense was still up for debate, but his attorney, Abbey Lowell, rested the defense case without calling Biden to the stand. Prosecutors then called back their first witness, FBI Special Agent Erika Jensen, to discuss new evidence: messages between Hunter Biden and Hailey Biden, his former sister-in-law and romantic partner. Prosecutors claim Naomi Biden's testimony last week was inconsistent with new data from Hunter Biden's phone.

In closing arguments, Assistant Special Counsel Leo Wise reiterated the prosecution's claim that Hunter Biden knew he was a drug addict and bought the gun anyway by lying on a federal form for a background check. Lovell responded with a reminder to the jury that they could not convict Biden based on the allegations and presumptions that were the basis of the government's case.

A death row inmate will be executed in Missouri.

Missourian to Abolish Death Penalty by AP

Missouri is set to carry out its second execution of the year today after Gov. Mike Parsons rejected a request for clemency for David Hozier, who was convicted in the 2009 deaths of a married couple. Hozier has long maintained his innocence as prosecutors painted him as a scorned ex-lover out for revenge. And in what could be his final days, Hoosier criticized his lawyers, saying in a recent interview, “I don't think they're representing me.”

Hozier took issue with his plea, which he wanted to focus on the lack of DNA evidence at the crime scene. Instead, his lawyers cited childhood trauma, such as the death of his father when he was a teenager. Read more about the case.

Key takeaways from Apple's big AI announcement

apple

Artificial intelligence — or as Apple is calling it “Apple Intelligence” — is coming to iPhones, iPads and Macs later this summer, the company announced yesterday at its Worldwide Developers Conference. The move is similar to companies like Google, Microsoft and Meta, which have recently integrated AI into their products with mixed results. Apple, however, may succeed in making AI a part of everyday life.

One big advantage Apple has over its competitors is the amount of information the iPhone has about its users, from who's in your photos to who you're texting and emailing. So a simple question like, “When is my mom's flight landing?” One will get a personalized response that other powerful chatbots will not be able to deliver. The idea is that using AI on the iPhone will feel normal — so normal that sometimes you won't even know it's there.
