WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT … “I HAVE A PLAN” Fans of Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren saw Haley Sweetland Edwards’ May 20 profile as a victory for the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate. “She’s FINALLY starting to get the media attention she deserves after what’s been an incredible early-stage campaign,” tweeted activist Adam Best. Conservative pundit S.E. Cupp tweeted that the story was right to point out that Warren “definitely has real policy plans, where many other candidates don’t. Now it’s up to voters to decide if they make sense.” (For her, she added, “they don’t.”) Rodney W. Hanson of Lacey, Wash., wished the article mentioned even more of Warren’s policy positions, particularly those on climate change, but to Facebook user Paul Dukich, all those policies ran together as “more and more taxes.” ‘I…

how the trade war will be fought

TRADE The real trade war: Whose rules will reign? RAY GAESSER, A SOYBEAN FARMER IN CORNING, Iowa, is on the front lines of the escalating trade war between the U.S. and China. Last fall, he was optimistic that the world’s two largest economies would seal a deal that would keep his crops moving to market in China. But as tit-for-tat tariffs have made his soybeans less competitive, Gaesser, 66, says it will be hard for many growers to turn a profit this year. “Farmers’ patience is growing thin,” he tells TIME. The question that really scares him: “Are we going to be in this for a long, long time?” The answer almost certainly is yes. President Donald Trump’s efforts to force China to buy more U.S. agricultural products, open up to foreign business…

a brecit champion again rattles britain

POSTCARD The Godfather of Brexit returns to rile up the U.K. WHEN THE SUN SHINES ON CLACTON-ON-SEA on the east coast of England, the town comes alive with sunbathers, kids playing arcade machines and shopkeepers hawking beach balls on the sand-swept promenade. But the sky on a recent spring morning was overcast, and it hung over a different sort of crowd. Hundreds gathered at Clacton’s pier on April 23, many bearing pro-Brexit placards and wearing Union Jack pins. As the man they had come to see, Nigel Farage, stepped up to speak, a local politician hailed him by a nickname: the Godfather of Brexit. Farage’s lobbying was indeed instrumental to the U.K.’s decision to leave the European Union in the referendum of June 2016, especially his vociferous anti-migrant sentiment. But days after the result,…

DIED Peggy Lipton Counterculture icon PEGGY LIPTON’S PERFORMANCE AS JULIE BARNES ON THE MOD SQUAD made a huge impact on my whole generation. The show was decidedly not meant for our parents, and Peggy, who died on May 11 at 72, was a revelation. She represented a type of person not seen on television before, the quintessential example of a new kind of woman, young and hip, with a resilience that complemented a truly gentle spirit. Later, she played a more personal, yet equally influential, role in my life, when we worked together on Twin Peaks. Peggy brought mystery and strength in equal measure to the character of Norma, who ran the Double R Diner. She radiated a sense of purpose, and her performance on the show in many ways mirrored Peggy the unique…

SPEND A FEW HOURS WITH JESSE KLAVER, AND you realize he is a little different from other politicians in the Netherlands, a country where most people pride themselves on being modest and unpretentious. First, there is the unblinking self-confidence with which he will look you in the eye and tell you he wants to be Prime Minister one day. Then there are his exuberant political rallies, like the one TIME joined in Amsterdam on a windy weekday evening in March. Klaver enters through the crowd to pumping music and rhythmic clapping, like a boxer approaching the ring. The 33-year-old leader of the GroenLinks (Green Left) party made a global splash after his party leapt from four to 14 seats in the 2017 general elections, and his telegenic looks and resemblance to a…
