President Trump says the U.S. economy is along way from recession. Speaking at the White House Tuesday, Trump says he thinks the word recession is "inappropriate" and claimed the media just uses it. Trump added that if the Federal Reserve would do its job, the economy would see "growth like never before." Trump said he's considering indexing and possible tax cuts, including a payroll tax.       President Trump is canceling his meeting with Denmark's prime minister over her refusal to discuss possibly selling Greenland to the U.S. After reports of Trump's interest in having the U.S. purchase Greenland became public, the Danish leader adamantly said Greenland, which is an autonomous Danish territory, is not for sale. On Twitter, Trump said the Danish leader "was able to save a great deal of expense and effort" by being so direct.        Former Vatican Treasurer George Pell will not be retried for his sex abuse conviction. Pell was the most senior Catholic official to be convicted for sexually abusing children. The 78-year-old was sentenced to six-years in prison in Australia for assaulting two 13-year-old boys in the mid-1990s.       The equal-pay lawsuit filed by the U.S. women's soccer team will head to trial next May. The players are looking forward to their day in court. A spokesperson said today "We have every confidence that these world champion athletes will get what they legally deserve -- nothing less than equal pay and working conditions." The team filed the lawsuit in March claiming federal discrimination by paying women less than men.        Another Matrix film is in the works. Lana Wachowski is back and set to write and direct the fourth installment of the hit film series. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, who starred in the first three movies, will return to reprise their roles. The three previous films earned more than one-point-six billion dollars globally.
