China and the United States agreed on Saturday to refrain from setting additional tariffs that would further escalate a months-long trade war that has roiled global markets and halted sales of American soybeans to the world's top buyer.

Three hours after a federal judge ruled against Nelson's request that the deadline for Florida's mechanical recount be extended, election officials announced the tabulation had boosted Scott's 12,562-vote lead by 41 votes out of 8.2 million cast in a state that will be pivotal in the 2020 presidential contest.
