Mike Blake/ReutersTreasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin announced on Sunday that the United States was temporarily halting its planned tariffs on Chinese imports while the two nations continue to negotiate.

NBCTina Fey may be "relieved" that she doesn't work on Saturday Night Live right now, but on Saturday Night, the sketchy comedy-show's longtime head writer hosted its 43rd season finale.
