The Biden administration has been circulating on Capitol Hill the first breakdown of which U.S. states have benefited from the billions of dollars spent on arming Ukraine, in a move to gather more support from Republicans who have voted against aid for Kyiv. While three of the eight Republican members of Congress from Pennsylvania have been voting against funding to help stop Russia's invasion, the data shows the Keystone State has received $2.364 billion - the most of any state - in spending and investments to build arms and ammunition, according to documents seen by Reuters. In Texas, 18 of the 25 Republican U.S. representatives have voted against Ukraine aid.
Republican mega-donor Bernie Marcus said on Tuesday he would likely still give money to Donald Trump's 2024 presidential bid if the former president was convicted of a crime - but the billionaire does not plan to be one of his biggest financial backers.

Trump faces four criminal cases, including state and federal charges stemming from his efforts to overturn his 2020 election loss to Democrat Joe Biden.

Federal Reserve Bank of New York President John Williams said Tuesday longer-term inflation expectations have been encouragingly steady, and he welcomed declining inflation pressures. "The recent news about the long-run anchoring of inflation expectations in the United States is mostly reassuring: available measures of longer-run inflation expectations in the United States have remained remarkably stable," Williams said in a chapter of a new Bank for International Settlements report. Williams did not make any forward-looking comments about monetary policy in the report, but he did note what he sees as an encouraging trend of falling inflation and an ongoing commitment by the central bank to hitting its 2% target.

STORY: Israel's assault on the Gaza Strip has already killed more than 15,000 people, many of them in devastating airstrikes that have turned neighborhoods into rubble.But the World Health Organization warns that even more people could die from disease than from bombs if the beseiged enclave's health system is not repaired."(There are) no medicines, no vaccination activities, no access to safe water and hygiene and no food.”WHO spokesperson Margaret Harris on Tuesday said the agency is already seeing a dangerous surge in diarrhea in Palestinian children.“We saw a very high number of cases of diarrhea among infants and again, no, there’s no treatment available for them. You know, if you have a child with diarrhea you need to give them re-hydration in order to keep them going until they get better and if you’re not able to do that, they can die very quickly from dehydration.”Harris added that nearly three quarters of hospitals, or 26 out of 36, have shut down entirely in Gaza due to bombings or lack of fuel.Under the terms of a pause in fighting, Israel has allowed more aid to flow into Gaza including food, water and medicine although aid agencies say it is not enough to meet the immense needs.James Elder is a spokesperson for UNICEF:“When I was coming here, I expected the worst in coming and I was surprised that it was even worst than I’d imagined. Hospitals for children, hospitals full stop, are war zones. I see children with horrendous wounds of war in car parks, on makeshift, mattresses, in gardens, everywhere. Doctors having to make horrendous decisions on, you know, who they prioritize.”Israel has sworn to annihilate Hamas, the militant group that rules Gaza, after its gunmen burst through the border killing around 1,200 people and seizing 240 captives on Oct. 7.
