Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
President Trump signed an Executive Order on Police Reform -- it doesn’t go as far to reform as Democrat’s plan:
In a zig-zagging press conference, President Trump signed an executive order aimed at police reform in the wake of the killing of George Floyd and subsequent national protests. The order falls far short of activists’ demands, and short of the Justice in Policing Act introduced by House and Senate Democrats.
Senate Republicans also introduced their own reform bill, which would encourage reforms but not require them.
Former National Security Adviser John Bolton is set to release a new book… and Trump is suing to stop its publication:
John Bolton’s new book, “The Room Where It Happened,” has D.C. buzzing awaiting its release next week, including the President himself. Trump’s Justice Department sued him, alleging that the book contained classified information that would undercut national security if published.
