Your Daily Roundup for July 15th
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 gave a racist response to a simple question:
In a CBS News interview yesterday, Trump gave a bizarre and racist response about why Black Americans were dying at the hands of police:
“So are white people. So are white people. What a terrible question to ask. So are white people. More white people by the way. More white people.”
But the question isn’t about volume, it’s about proportion -- especially with the recent senseless killings of Black Americans on video, with police often never charged. Black Americans are 2.5 times more likely to die as a result of police violence than their white counterparts.
A member of the White House stepped up his attack on Dr. Fauci:
The Trump White House has been carrying out a smear campaign against the nation’s top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci.
Despite their tepid denials, Trump’s top trade adviser in the White House, Peter Navarro, wrote an op-ed today titled, “Anthony Fauci has been wrong about everything I have interacted with him on.”
We have some thoughts on the administration’s undermining of Fauci. Read our analysis here.
New polling shows Trump’s approval rating continues to suffer:
Trump’s job approval hasn’t budged. Two new polls out today show he is 14 and 15 points under water, respectively.
A CNBC/Change Research poll shows Trump’s disapproval nearing 60%:
- Approve: 43%
- Disapprove: 57%
And a Politico/Morning Consult poll tells a similar story:
- Approve: 41%
- Disapprove: 56%
The same poll shows that a vast majority of Americans are not happy with the way things are going in the country:
- Right direction: 28%
- Wrong direction: 72%
