Trump had public meltdown over missed phone call from Putin, former No 10 aide says


Donald Trump exploded with anger at one of his most senior aides about missing a phone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a former No 10 official.

The US president’s rant about the missed call happened “right in front” of former prime minister Theresa May in Washington, her ex-chief of staff Nick Timothy has revealed.

Mr Timothy spoke about a “fairly extraordinary” lunch during which Mr Trump shouted at his then-national security advisor Michael Flynn.

“Somebody just mentioned in passing that Vladimir Putin had asked for a call with him, and right in front us he absolutely shouted down Mike Flynn,” he said.

Trump calls for drug tests before Biden debate


sorry about Examiner, will look for another source

US President Donald Trump has called for he and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden to submit to drug tests before their first debate next month.

Mr Trump told the Washington Examiner he had noticed a sudden improvement in Mr Biden's performance in the Democratic TV debates.

The president offered no evidence his rival might be on drugs other than to say: "I'm pretty good at this stuff."

Mr Biden and Mr Trump will have three debates before the 3 November election.

Back in 2016, Mr Trump suggested his then-Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, had been "getting pumped up" before their debates and challenged her to take a drug test ahead of their final live TV encounter. The Clinton camp brushed his challenge aside.

FL DofAgandCS Secretary Nikki Fried: "If @GovRonDeSantis' administration is anything, they are..."


Florida’s 12th Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services. Working to keep Florida growing.

If @GovRonDeSantis’ administration is anything, they are consistent in their efforts to hide data from the public.

This time they are telling Duval Schools not to publish school specific #COVID19 data. Data parents deserve to have.

What are you hiding?



Just five days into the new school year, Duval County Public Schools announced it will stop publishing school-related COVID-19 cases — and district personnel say the health department is to blame.

Going into a school year taking place during a global health pandemic, Duval County Public Schools touted transparency.

Superintendent Diana Greene said the district was going the extra mile, working on its own dashboard with updated COVID-19 case numbers, that was expected to launch the first day of school.

Instead, a static webpage the district started updating with confirmed cases on Monday has been untouched for two days. District spokesman Tracy Pierce said that's because on Tuesday, the Duval County Department of Health told the district it cannot publish "school specific data related to COVID-19" without the state health department's permission.

Testing in Florida: is it any easier to get a COVID-19 test ?

Either at a public health facility or privately ? My impression, which may be incorrect, is that overall cases are going down.

Kentucky Man Accused Of Breaking Canada's COVID-19 Rules Faces $569,000 Fine


A Kentucky man accused of breaking Canada's coronavirus rules — twice — could be forced to pay a $569,000 fine ($750,000 Canadian), spend up to six months in prison, or both.

John Pennington of Walton, Ky., was initially fined $910 ($1,200 Canadian) on June 25 after an employee at a Banff hotel where he was staying suspected he was violating Alberta's coronavirus regulations, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Cpl. Tammy Keibel told NPR.

Pennington was told to stay in his hotel until leaving the next day. But the following afternoon, police spotted his car at a local tourist attraction, and he was arrested and charged with violating Canada's Quarantine Act.

Canada closed its border to Americans on March 21 to help slow the spread of the coronavirus, but Americans can still enter the country if they are going to or from Alaska. Some Americans are reportedly using the loophole to cross the border into Canada and stay there.

'He's going to be unleashed': Republican DOJ appointees urge against Trump second term


A group of onetime Republican presidential appointees who served as senior ethics or Justice Department aides are endorsing Joe Biden for president, warning that Donald Trump has “weaponized” the executive branch and is putting in peril the legitimacy of the U.S. Justice Department.

“I think a lot of us are extremely alarmed, frankly, at the threat of autocracy,” Donald B. Ayer, former deputy attorney general during the George H.W. Bush administration, said in an interview with POLITICO. “He’s going to be unleashed if he gets a second term. I don’t know what’s going to stop him.”

The former officials endorsing Tuesday served under the Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush administrations.

The officials said they’re backing Biden in the hope of restoring “basic honesty and integrity to the U.S. Department of Justice and to Executive Branch decision-making.”
