For American presidents Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and Donald Trump, Netanyahu was their partner as Israel's longest-serving prime minister.

Facebook announced Friday its suspension of Donald Trump's account from the platform will hold for two years from the initial suspension on Jan. 7. "Given the gravity of the circumstances that led to Mr. Trump's suspension, we believe his actions constituted a severe violation of our rules which merit the highest penalty available under the new enforcement protocols," Nick Clegg, vice president of global affairs for Facebook, said in a statement published Friday. "Facebook's ruling is an insult to the record-setting 75M people, plus many others, who voted for us in the 2020 Rigged Presidential Election," Trump said in the statement.

Family of Belize's slain police superintendent to file wrongful death lawsuit

The family of Belize's slain police superintendent told ABC News that they plan to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the longtime partner of a British billionaire's son who has been charged in his death. Henry Jemmott, superintendent of the Belize Police Department, was found dead in the water off a pier in the resort town of San Pedro on Belize's largest island in the early hours of May 28. Jasmine Hartin, a Canadian citizen who lives in Belize with her family, "was somewhat in an emotional state walking herself on the pier" near Jemmott's body and had "what appeared to be blood on her arms and on her clothing" when police arrived on scene, Williams said during a press conference last week.

Biden calls latest jobs report 'great news,' claims 'historic progress' in economic rebound

President Joe Biden on Friday called the May jobs report "great news" about the economic recovery from the pandemic, touting that his administration has led a historic rebound. The U.S. economy added 559,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate fell to 5.8% -- the lowest, Biden said, since the pandemic began. "That means we have now created over 2 million jobs in total since I took office, more jobs than have ever been created in the first four months of any presidency in modern history, triple the rate of my predecessor, eight times the rate of President Reagan," Biden said, speaking from Delaware.

Tennis player arrested over alleged 'sports corruption' at French Open

A Russian tennis player was placed in police custody Thursday night on charges of "sports corruption and organized gang scam targeting acts likely to have been committed in September 2020," the Paris prosecutor's office told ABC News. At last year's French Open, Russian player Yana Sizikova lost a doubles match with Madison Bregle, who is American, on Sept. 30 against Andrea Mitu and Patricia Maria Tig, both of Romania. German newspaper Die Welt reports that the suspicions focus on the fifth game of the second set, won by the Romanian duo after two gross double faults by the 26-year-old Sizikova, who was taking part in the tournament for the first time.

Hong Kong activists struggle to keep memory of Tiananmen alive under security law

Hong Kong feels more jittery than usual Friday as it marks the 32nd anniversary of the deadly Tiananmen crackdown -- the first since Beijing imposed a draconian national security law in the city last summer. In a sign of the times, the city woke up to news that police had arrested activist Chow Hang-tung, the vice chairwoman of the group that organizes the annual Tiananmen vigil.

Biden's quiet influence over Democrats grows: The Note

Bipartisan infrastructure talks, while not going particularly well, are still taking place, with Biden set to speak again with the lead GOP Senate negotiator on Friday.

Summer road trip? Gas prices should remain steady after Memorial Day weekend high

Gas prices stood firm around $3 per gallon over the Memorial Day holiday and experts said drivers should expect similar prices for the rest of the summer.

Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, said we could see some relief by Independence Day.

Police oversight boards are proliferating, but do they actually work?

While police oversight boards have been around for decades, a string of high-profile killings in recent years, including George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, have focused greater scrutiny on the use of force and need to hold officers accountable. The idea behind the civilian oversight of police is to benefit not only those making complaints against officers but the community and even departments themselves. This can work in numbers ways including providing an independent avenue for complaints, discipline and policy changes, according to National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement, a non-profit that works with individuals and police agencies to establish and improve civilian oversight.

Why ransomware cyberattacks are on the rise

A recent spate of ransomware attacks has crippled critical American infrastructure, disrupted major food supply chains and revealed that no firm -- big or small -- is safe from these insidious cyberattacks. Ransomware strikes have surged over the past year due to a confluence of factors, experts say, including the rise of hard-to-trace cryptocurrency, a work-from-home boom that has resulted in new IT vulnerabilities and a political climate marked by ongoing tensions between the U.S. and Russia -- the nation from which many of these attacks are believed to emanate. The recent attack on Colonial Pipeline, operators of one of the United States' largest fuel conduits, also showed that victims are forced to decide between paying criminals their ransom demands or being unable to operate their businesses.

This can work in numbers ways including providing an independent avenue for complaints, discipline and policy changes, according to National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement, a non-profit that works with individuals and police agencies to establish and improve civilian oversight.

Why ransomware cyberattacks are on the rise

A recent spate of ransomware attacks has crippled critical American infrastructure, disrupted major food supply chains and revealed that no firm -- big or small -- is safe from these insidious cyberattacks. Ransomware strikes have surged over the past year due to a confluence of factors, experts say, including the rise of hard-to-trace cryptocurrency, a work-from-home boom that has resulted in new IT vulnerabilities and a political climate marked by ongoing tensions between the U.S. and Russia -- the nation from which many of these attacks are believed to emanate. The recent attack on Colonial Pipeline, operators of one of the United States' largest fuel conduits, also showed that victims are forced to decide between paying criminals their ransom demands or being unable to operate their businesses.

Ransomware strikes have surged over the past year due to a confluence of factors, experts say, including the rise of hard-to-trace cryptocurrency, a work-from-home boom that has resulted in new IT vulnerabilities and a political climate marked by ongoing tensions between the U.S. and Russia -- the nation from which many of these attacks are believed to emanate. The recent attack on Colonial Pipeline, operators of one of the United States' largest fuel conduits, also showed that victims are forced to decide between paying criminals their ransom demands or being unable to operate their businesses.

Biden calls latest jobs report 'great news,' claims 'historic progress' in economic rebound

President Joe Biden on Friday called the May jobs report "great news" about the economic recovery from the pandemic, touting that his administration has led a historic rebound. The U.S. economy added 559,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate fell to 5.8% -- the lowest, Biden said, since the pandemic began.

Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, said we could see some relief by Independence Day.

Police oversight boards are proliferating, but do they actually work?

While police oversight boards have been around for decades, a string of high-profile killings in recent years, including George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, have focused greater scrutiny on the use of force and need to hold officers accountable. The idea behind the civilian oversight of police is to benefit not only those making complaints against officers but the community and even departments themselves. This can work in numbers ways including providing an independent avenue for complaints, discipline and policy changes, according to National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement, a non-profit that works with individuals and police agencies to establish and improve civilian oversight.

President Joe Biden on Friday called the May jobs report "great news" about the economic recovery from the pandemic, touting that his administration has led a historic rebound. The U.S. economy added 559,000 jobs last month and the unemployment rate fell to 5.8% -- the lowest, Biden said, since the pandemic began. "That means we have now created over 2 million jobs in total since I took office, more jobs than have ever been created in the first four months of any presidency in modern history, triple the rate of my predecessor, eight times the rate of President Reagan," Biden said, speaking from Delaware.

Police oversight boards are proliferating, but do they actually work?

While police oversight boards have been around for decades, a string of high-profile killings in recent years, including George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, have focused greater scrutiny on the use of force and need to hold officers accountable. The idea behind the civilian oversight of police is to benefit not only those making complaints against officers but the community and even departments themselves. This can work in numbers ways including providing an independent avenue for complaints, discipline and policy changes, according to National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement, a non-profit that works with individuals and police agencies to establish and improve civilian oversight.

Why ransomware cyberattacks are on the rise

A recent spate of ransomware attacks has crippled critical American infrastructure, disrupted major food supply chains and revealed that no firm -- big or small -- is safe from these insidious cyberattacks. Ransomware strikes have surged over the past year due to a confluence of factors, experts say, including the rise of hard-to-trace cryptocurrency, a work-from-home boom that has resulted in new IT vulnerabilities and a political climate marked by ongoing tensions between the U.S. and Russia -- the nation from which many of these attacks are believed to emanate. The recent attack on Colonial Pipeline, operators of one of the United States' largest fuel conduits, also showed that victims are forced to decide between paying criminals their ransom demands or being unable to operate their businesses.
