Looking to get caught up on the news, fast? Here are the top five things that happened Wednesday, covered by the local stations you trust every day.

1. Local elections signal rejection of Trump

In state and municipal elections across the country Tuesday, voters embraced an agenda much different than the one President Donald Trump has been pursuing.

Americans elected two Democrats as governors and a range of diverse candidates, like openly trangender Danica Roen, to other seats.

2. President Trump spends time in China

President Donald Trump visited with China's President Xi Jinping, with the pair even taking a tour of the Forbidden City together.

The nation is the third stop on Trump's tour of Asia.

3. Pence pays a visit to Texas

Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence visited Texas after the deadly church shooting that left 26 dead.

The pair toured Sutherland Springs and spoke at a prayer rally.

4. More details emerge about Texas shooting

Officials revealed that the deadly Texas shooting was caught on video.

Those who have watched the footage describe a man who calmly and methodically shot his victims at point-blank range.

5. U.S. tightens restrictions on Cuba travel

The United States took steps to further isolate Cuba and its communist government.

The move is part of a broader plan by Trump to minimize relations between the nations.
