Media to be banned from Republican convention due to coronavirus restrictions

Media not allowed to attend Trump nomination

The media will reportedly not be allowed to witness Donald Trump’s formal renomination as the Republican party’s choice for president at its national convention later this month.

Citing coronavirus-related health concerns, a convention spokesperson told the Associated Press that media members would be turned away in order to assure compliance with state and local guidelines “regarding the number of people who can attend events”.

The announcement was highly unusual and would represent a historic departure from convention practices in modern times. An Arkansas newspaper, the Democrat Gazette, first reported the news. The Republican national committee, which organizes the convention, could not immediately be reached for comment.


Citing Election Delay Tweet, Influential Trump Ally Now Demands His Re-Impeachment

Federalist Society leader calls for ouster of TrumpAfter voting for President Trump in 2016 and staunchly defending him in conservative publications, a Federalist Society leader appears to be having some very public buyer's remorse.

Steven Calabresi, co-founder of the powerful conservative legal organization, is now calling on the House of Representatives to do again what it has already done once this year: impeach Trump.

In a scathing opinion piece in The New York Times published online Thursday, the Northwestern University law professor points to what ignited his newfound ire with the president: a tweet Trump sent out shortly after news broke Thursday morning that the U.S. economy had suffered its biggest recorded contraction ever last quarter.


Kushner's coronavirus team shied away from a national strategy, believing that the virus was hitting Democratic states hardest and that they could blame governors, report says

Members of Jared Kushner's coronavirus task force considered a national-scale testing plan early in the US's coronavirus outbreak.

However, according to a new Vanity Fair report, the plan never came to be, partly because the task force thought it would be better politically to hold off.

The logic, a source told Vanity Fair, was that the virus would hit Democratic-voting areas hardest and that the damage could be blamed on governors instead.

In March and early April, Kushner, a senior White House adviser, led a task force, parallel to the White House's official efforts, to devise a plan to accelerate coronavirus testing and supply chains nationwide.



Delay the election? Take Trump seriously. Laws and the Constitution haven't stopped him yet.

Trump wants to delay electionMoments after President Donald Trump tweeted that perhaps this year’s election should be delayed, a wave of responses suggested that his public musing should be dismissed. The Constitution gives Congress the power to set election dates, political Twitter noted, and the Democratic-controlled House would never go along with the idea. It was impossible. It was a non-starter.

It was also suggested that the president floated the idea as a distraction from the other news of the morning: that the economy during the second quarter had suffered the worst economic collapse in U.S. history, that another 1.4 million people had filed for unemployment, and that former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, who  attended Trump’s Tulsa rally without wearing a mask, had just died of COVID-19.


Pro-Trump 'Turning Point USA' co-founder dies of coronavirus-related complications

Bill Montgomery dies of Covid

The co-founder of conservative student group Turning Point USA, Bill Montgomery, has died from complications of the coronavirus, according to two friends of his.

Montgomery, who started it in 2012 with young conservative star Charlie Kirk, died at the age of 80 on Tuesday from Covid-19, according to pro-Trump conservative strategist Caleb Hull, who posted about the death on Twitter and his personal Facebook page, and Chicago-based citizen journalist Vic Maggio.

“I really wish people would just stop politicizing this pandemic and grow up while innocent people around us are dying,” Hull also said. “You have no idea how painful it is to be forced to sit at home while your loved one dies alone in a hospital.”


Reuters: Trump administration to undertake DACA review in new bid to end program

DACA dreamersU.S. President Donald Trump’s administration plans to allow so-called ‘Dreamer’ immigrants to renew deportation protections for a year while it reviews a Supreme Court ruling, a senior administration official said on Tuesday.

The administration is preparing a fresh attempt to end the program that shields from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants living in the United States illegally after entering as children - a group often called ‘Dreamers.’

The review follows the court ruling last month that found the administration had erred in the way that it had decided to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2017. DACA was put in place by former President Barack Obama and currently some 644,000 immigrants are enrolled.


Twitter removes President Donald Trump's post touting a false 'cure' for COVID-19

Twitter removes Trump claim of a Covid cure

Twitter, which has fact checked previous Trump tweets, said it was following its own rules prohibiting the dissemination of bad information about the virus that has claimed nearly 150,000 American lives.

The president's re-tweet "was in violation of our COVID-19 misinformation policy," Twitter said in statement.

As for the president's son, Twitter sent a notice saying "we've temporarily limited some of your account features" for violating the policy on "spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19."
