Both leaders are nationalists and avid Twitter users (Mr. Trump has 32.8 million followers, Mr. Modi 31 million).

3. The Congressional Budget Office found the Senate’s version of the health care bill would increase the number of uninsured by 22 million by 2026, slightly less than the 23 million it found for the House version.

The majority leader, Senator Mitch McConnell, above, wants to call a vote before the end of the week, when the July 4 recess begins.

But a handful of Republicans remain reluctant. Our survey of local news outlets around the country turned up little support for the bill.

4. In other health news, undocumented immigrants appear to be avoiding medical treatment out of fear they might be stopped and deported. Above, two citizen children of undocumented parents in North Carolina.

Our writer found many examples across the U.S. of people retreating into the shadows and skipping appointments. Sometimes the stress itself makes them sick.

One little girl with persistent stomachaches was found to have anxiety. She was terrified her parents would disappear.

6. Climate conundrum: The amount of carbon dioxide humans are pumping into the air seems to have stabilized — but data gathered at the world’s monitoring stations, like the one above in Tasmania, show that excess carbon dioxide is still on the rise.

One troubling possibility: The world’s natural sponges for the greenhouse gas, like the ocean, are no longer able to keep up.

10. The new Alexander Calder exhibit at the Whitney Museum of American Art is a rare chance to see his sculptures move as they were intended to.

Art handlers poke the sculptures periodically, so guests can see how the parts shift and sway. We filmed a handful.

“They’re all quite graceful,” one of the handlers said. “But some of them, I think on purpose, have these moments when they’re not graceful.”

11. Finally, we bring you news of the great male skirt rebellion of 2017.

French bus drivers suffering through a heat wave are among the men revolting against workplace rules that prevent them from wearing skirts or shorts on the job.

Our top fashion critic notes that the design crowd actually seems to be far more comfortable with the skirts than shorts on men. Above, a Thom Browne show in Paris.

“Odds are, we are going to see more of it,” she predicts. “Employers had better get ready.”

Have a great night.
