Your Daily Roundup for January 13th
Let us know what you think.
Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
One week since the 1/6/21 attack:
It has been seven days since the violent attack incited by President Trump on our nation’s Capitol, and in seven days, Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. This morning, the U.S. House will formally vote on an article of impeachment against President Trump, the first time in history a president will be impeached twice (the article is expected to pass, with some bipartisan support, including from the #3 Republican Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY)). The impeachment vote comes after a resolution passed Tuesday evening in the House to urge Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, to which Pence notified House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in a letter that he would not do so. Most House Republicans, however, will join the Vice President in refusing to hold President Trump accountable for the mob attack that stormed the Capitol immediately after his speech urging them to “fight.” We will be tracking the latest on the impeachment vote.
As American democracy hangs in the balance, COVID-19 is ravaging communities:
On Tuesday, with impeachment in the backdrop, the U.S. set a new record for deaths in a single day over the course of the pandemic, with more than 4,400 perishing due to COVID-19. The U.S. is on pace to surpass 400,000 total deaths from the virus in a few days over a month since the country surpassed 300,000. More Americans have died from the virus than those who served in combat in World War II.
The U.S. will require negative COVID-19 tests for all international travelers:
The CDC announced it would soon be implementing a new policy that requires all international travelers flying by air to the United States to receive a negative COVID-19 test before boarding their flights. Travelers will be required to have a negative test result up to three days before their air travel and provide written documentation of their results. The responsibility of confirming negative results will fall on the airlines themselves, which are eager for travelers to resume flying after nearly a year of significantly reduced volume in air travel.
