Here are the week’s top stories, and a look ahead.
1. All eyes on Singapore.
President Trump and Kim Jong-un are scheduled to meet there on Tuesday. The sit-down will be a long-anticipated test of Mr. Trump’s conviction that he can slice through decades of diplomatic orthodoxy and strike a grand bargain with North Korea, a feat that eluded his three immediate predecessors.
But first, Mr. Trump had to get through a Group of 7 meeting with the leaders of America’s closest allies. He refused to sign a joint statement negotiated during the meeting, saying on Twitter that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada was “very dishonest and weak.”
Our Washington correspondents write that with his America First agenda, Mr. Trump has driven a wedge between the U.S. and its allies, ceding leadership and its seat at the table.
Each death prompted an outpouring of emotion from across the globe. Ms. Spade’s fans recounted how her bright handbags were their first “grown-up” big-ticket purchase. And our TV critic wrote that Mr. Bourdain’s appeal was in how he explored culture through cuisine, and relished all of it.
Their deaths came as new federal data was released showing a rise in suicides in nearly every state. Here are some resources for people grappling with suicidal thoughts, and tips from experts on how to help a loved one who is depressed.
3. Speaker Paul Ryan promised that House Republicans would draft legislation on immigration for a floor vote in the coming weeks, setting up a showdown within his party just as the midterm campaigns come into focus.
And we met a 5-year-old Honduran boy separated from his father when they arrived at the border in El Paso. He’s been inconsolable since his father was arrested and he was sent to live with a foster family in Michigan.
Separating parents and children is the Trump administration’s latest and most widely debated border enforcement policy.
4. The special counsel for the Russia investigation, Robert Mueller, brought new obstruction charges against President Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, above, and an associate accused of ties to Russian intelligence.
Mr. Trump’s lawyers continue to argue that the president is above obstruction statutes. In fact, he declared on Twitter that he had “the absolute right” to pardon himself for any crime.
Separately, a former Senate Intelligence Committee aide was arrested as part of an investigation into leaks of classified information. Prosecutors secretly seized years’ worth of a Times reporter’s phone and email records in connection with that investigation.
5. Democrats enhanced their prospects for winning control of the House in primaries in eight states on Tuesday.
California got the most attention: Democrats had feared disaster there, in part because of the state’s unusual open primary system. But they averted one with help from the national party. Above, supporters of the Democratic candidate Mike Levin at a watch party in Oceanside, Calif.
The state’s Republicans avoided their own worst-case scenario as well, securing a spot in the governor’s race, which should help bring G.O.P. voters to the polls.
Looking ahead to 2020, fund-raising for races across the country has already begun in New York.
Of course, we can’t include all our politics coverage in this briefing. For more, check out our roundup of this week’s biggest stories in American politics.
6. Surveillance cameras monitored by the police have become a ubiquitous presence in many cities. In Newark, anyone can watch the live stream.
It’s an extraordinary step that few, if any, other departments in the country have pursued: The city has opened up feeds from dozens of closed-circuit cameras to the public, asking viewers to assist the force by watching over the city and reporting anything suspicious.
Officials say the Citizen Virtual Patrol, as the program is called, is a move toward transparency. But it has provoked alarm among civil liberties groups and privacy advocates.
7. We reported that Facebook let Apple, Samsung and other device makers tap into the data of users and their friends, raising new concerns about privacy protections.
The companies that got access included Huawei, a Chinese telecommunications equipment company flagged by U.S. intelligence as a security threat. The firm has close ties to the Chinese government.
Banned in China since 2009, Facebook in recent years has quietly sought to re-establish itself there. But it said it would wind down the deal with Huawei.
8. The Miss America Organization is scrapping the swimsuit portion of the competition as it tries to find a foothold in the #MeToo era. Above, the 1981 pageant.
We wanted to know what it feels like to participate in these pageants, and why many compete again and again. We asked our readers and heard from more than 170 competitors, from Tiny Miss Snellville 1974 to International Mr. Leather 2015. Here is a selection of their stories.
9. Lots of big victories this week in sports: Simona Halep of Romania, above, beat Sloane Stephens to win the French Open.
Justify won the Belmont Stakes to become the 13th Triple Crown champion, the second in four years.
The Golden State Warriors swept the Cleveland Cavaliers, winning their third N.B.A. title in four years.
The Washington Capitals defeated the Vegas Golden Knights to win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history.
And we’ve launched Offsides, a twice-weekly newsletter about the World Cup, which starts Thursday. Sign up here and the writer Musa Okwonga will send you lively updates on the scores, the social issues and the hidden stories of the tournament.
10. Finally, The Tony Awards are at 8 p.m. Eastern on Sunday, broadcast on CBS from Radio City Music Hall. Our critics say “The Band’s Visit” and the new Harry Potter show, above, are likely to win.
In this collection of our best weekend reads, we talk to a Broadway producer up for a Tony, chronicle love in New York City and learn about the players we’ll see in the World Cup.
Have a great week.
