WASHINGTON (AP) — President Trump says in an AP interview he still wants to build the wall on the U.S.-Mexican border but doesn't know whether he'll sign a stop-gap spending bill if it doesn't pay for it.

PARIS (AP) — French far-left presidential candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon carried on his pre-planned final campaign event in Paris so as "not to interrupt the democratic process." While other candidates cancelled their last sprint of campaigning in light of Thursday's deadly gun attack on the Champs-Elysees avenue, the firebrand 65-year-old held a minute of silence for the police officer slain in the attack, attacked his rivals and enjoyed a cocktail.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Pacific Gas & Electric says on its official Twitter account that all power has been restored after an outage wiped out electricity for some 90,000 customers.
