Trump claims he would have beaten George Washington in election while bragging about non-existent poll numbersIf Donald Trump were to square off with US founding father George Washington in an election, the current president would have had a leg up — so says Mr Trump.“I don’t know if you’ve seen, the polls have been going up like a rocket ship. George Washington would have had a hard time beating me before the plague came in, before the China plague. And then, you know, like every other nation, like other countries, when you get hit, it affects you, and we went down a little bit,” Mr Trump said in an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt.

Putin Announces Russia Has Approved a Coronavirus Vaccine and That His Daughter Has Been Given a ShotRussian President Vladimir Putin announced Tuesday that his country has become the first to approve a coronavirus vaccine, and that his own daughter has received the shot. The vaccine is in production and millions of people, including teachers and front line health-care workers, will be given the shot beginning this month, he claimed. China has already authorized one vaccine for use in its military, ahead of definitive data that it is safe and effective. The Russian vaccine was reportedly given to the scientists who developed it as well as 50 members of the Russian military and a handful of other volunteers. Putin made the announcement during a televised video conference call with government ministers, saying: “This morning, for the first time in the world, a vaccine against the new coronavirus was registered,” adding that his daughter was among those to be inoculated.

Black N.Y. City Council Members Claim Progressive Calls to Defund Police ‘Have Overshadowed Our Fight’In the wake of calls to address racism and police brutality, some black and Latino lawmakers in New York and New Jersey are urging their colleagues to pump the brakes on proposals to slash police department budgets.City councilwoman Vanessa Gibson, a liberal Democrat who represents a West Bronx district where over half of residents are Hispanic and 40 percent are black, said her constituents “want to see cops in the community.”“They don’t want to see excessive force. They don’t want to see cops putting their knees in our necks,” Gibson said. “But they want to be safe as they go to the store.”New York City passed a new budget last month that cut $1 billion from the police department budget and re-purposed the funds for education and social services. The decision came amid calls from activists to slash even more funding from the police budget and as the city suffers a $9 billion revenue loss due to coronavirus lockdown measures."I don't want anyone to misunderstand and think that we don't care and that we have not been working our behinds off to get to a place of equity," Gibson said in early July when the city's new budget was passed, adding that communities must not be "left behind with crime, violence, illegal guns in our communities, no programs, no activities, and no hope for a better tomorrow."Laurie Cumbo, the city council's black Democratic majority leader who represents parts of several Brooklyn neighborhoods including Bedford-Stuyvesant, compared the demands of activists to “colonization.”"These are individuals that have never been seen before, active before,” she said. “This takeover is very similar to many of the movements that we’ve seen in colonization.”Alicka Ampry-Samuel, a black councilwoman who represents Brownsville, one of Brooklyn's poorest neighborhoods, expressed concern that the new voices pushing for reform could overshadow those in her community."We have fought for police reform and more funding every single budget cycle," she said. "This debate is not new to me. What is new are the additional voices of concern added to the conversation, which at times have overshadowed our fight.”Other black and Latino council members, including Antonio Reynoso of Brooklyn, who represents the more gentrified areas of Williamsburg and Bushwick, were more open to cutting funding to the NYPD.“We have wrongly been told our whole lives that police keep us safe,” Reynoso said.In New Jersey,Mayor Ras Baraka of Newark, the state's largest city, dismissed calls to dismantle police departments as a “bourgeois liberal” solution to the problem of racism.“I think it’s kind of a knee-jerk reaction,” said the Democratic mayor, who is black.“I think there needs to be significant reforms," he continued. "To get rid of the police department — who would respond to calls for service for violence and domestic abuse?”“At the end of the day, I think that the city and the residents here need police officers in their communities,” Baraka said.

Ocasio-Cortez asked in a tweet. "And restaurants actually have soap in the bathrooms."

Trump says Hong Kong issue is 'tough' because city is 'attached to China'It's time for a geography lesson with President Trump.During an interview with Fox Sports on Tuesday, the president was asked about the situation in Hong Kong, where in recent months China has cracked down with a new national security law that threatens the city's autonomy, and where Hong Kong authorities arrested media tycoon Jimmy Lai earlier this week. Trump didn't exactly echo his national security adviser, Robert O'Brien, who previously said the U.S. is "deeply troubled" by Lai's arrest. He instead complained Hong Kong had made "a lot of money" the U.S. could have made because of "tremendous incentives."But he did briefly wade into the political situation, simply to say that it's "a little bit tough from certain standpoints" because, when looking at a map, Hong Kong is "attached to" mainland China. And, well, there's no arguing with that. > How Trump describes China-Hong Kong relations on Fox Sports Radio: "You know, it's a part-- it's a part, when you look, I mean, take a look at a map. It's attached to China. So it's a little bit tough from certain standpoints."> > -- Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) August 11, 2020More stories from theweek.com The case against American truck bloat Trump and his aides reportedly think they have Democrats in a 'real pickle' with the COVID-19 aid stalemate Trump campaign tweets mugshots of alleged criminals, all of them Black, to claim Biden is pro-crime
