U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took to Twitter late Thursday to call out a Cook County prosecutor who commented on the Adam Toledo shooting-death case in Chicago. The prosecutor had said in court earlier this month that Toledo, the 13-year-old fatally shot by a Chicago police officer, had a gun in his hand at the time he was killed. The comment was made during a bond hearing for Ruben Roman, a 21-year-old who authorities say was with Toledo when police responded. Ocasio-Cortez's tweet followed a statement from the Cook County State’s Attorney office that said the prosecutor "failed to fully inform himself before speaking in court.

RIO DE JANEIRO — Taiwan has built thousands of homes for the poor in Paraguay, upgraded the country’s health care system, awarded hundreds of scholarships and even helped fund the futuristic Congress building in the capital, spending generously over decades to nurture their diplomatic ties. But the alliance, which makes Paraguay one of only 15 nations to have full diplomatic relations with Taiwan, and the only one in South America, is facing an existential threat as Paraguay’s quest for vaccines becomes increasingly desperate. With its health care system buckling as Covid-19 cases soar, Paraguayan officials across the political spectrum say the time has come to consider dumping Taiwan, which doesn’t export vaccines, in order to establish diplomatic ties with China, which does. “This is really a life and death situation,” said Pepe Zhang, an associate director at the Atlantic Council who specializes in relations between Latin America and China. “In this very acute phase of the pandemic, less resourceful countries like Paraguay are asking where they’re going to get the vaccine.”
