Your Daily Roundup For July 8th
Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Good morning. As the COVID-19 pandemic takes a toll on life in America, our team at Future Majority is tracking the latest updates:
Trump is setting up a fight with schools:
First, President Trump canceled a visa program for international students if their courses were entirely online. Harvard and MIT responded by suing the administration.
Then, despite the virus surging, Trump urged schools to open for in-person learning in the fall: “We hope that most schools are going to be open, and we don’t want people to make political statements or do it for political reasons” … “We are very much going to put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools to get them open.”
Another major retailer has filed for bankruptcy:
As cases of COVID-19 lead to modified or reversed reopening efforts around the country, another retailer has been forced to shutter.
Brooks Brothers, which was founded in 1818, filed for bankruptcy, joining the ranks of J. Crew, Neiman Marcus, and J.C. Penny.
Trump is adamant about a Florida convention, but lawmakers are wary:
President Trump is steadfast about wanting the Republican National Convention in Jacksonville this August. Despite Florida’s precarious position with COVID-19, he and his campaign want to move it forward.
But five Senate Republicans have already said they won’t attend, and more seem headed in that direction. TV networks have said they won’t carry the convention because of the risk it poses in spreading the virus.
