More than 350 faith leaders endorse Biden, citing 'need of moral leadership'

Source: The Hill

A coalition of more than 350 faith leaders endorsed Joe Biden for president late Thursday, citing a "need of moral leadership" and "hope for a better future."

The array of endorsements includes well-known progressive faith leaders such as Nadia Bolz-Weber, a Lutheran minister who founded the LGBTQ-friendly House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, and Robert W. Lee IV, a descendant of the Confederate general, who stepped down as pastor of a North Carolina church in 2017 after publicly supporting Black Lives Matter.

Former Democratic state lawmakers such as Paul Rosenthal (Colo.) and Natalie Phelps Finnie (Ill.) are also on the list.

It also includes a number of names who have never politically endorsed before, according to a press release from Faith 2020, which calls the range of names "big tent" and "multi-faith."

Biden: Trump 'rooting for more violence'

Source: The Hill

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Thursday accused President Trump of "rooting" for violence amid the unrest in Kenosha, Wis., following the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

"He views this as a political benefit to him. You know, he’s rooting for more violence, not less. And he’s clear about that. And what’s he doing, he’s pouring more gasoline on the fire," Biden said on MSNBC.

The former vice president cited comments from White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, who told Fox News earlier in the day that "the more chaos and anarchy and vandalism and violence reigns, the better it is for the very clear choice on who’s best on public safety and law and order."

Biden was responding to attacks from Vice President Pence a night earlier at the Republican National Convention, where Pence warned viewers they "won't be safe in Joe Biden's America."

Trump claims Democrats 'using COVID to steal an election'

Source: The Hill

President Trump on Monday claimed Democrats are using the coronavirus to "steal" the 2020 election, arguing closures of businesses and demands for mail-in voting are not driven by a pandemic that has killed nearly 180,000 Americans in five months, but to defeat him.

"What they’re doing is using COVID to steal an election," Trump told delegates at the Republican National Convention gathering in Charlotte, N.C. "They’re using COVID to defraud the American people, all of our people, of a fair and free election. We can’t do that."


Trump also repeated claims dispute by experts that mail ballots would be fraudulent and that they do not have security features to avoid fraud. Experts have consistently said there is little evidence of meaningful fraud in mail ballots.


Monday marked a rare instance where Trump directly accused Democrats of overstating the threat of the pandemic to gain an advantage in the election.

Ex-DHS staffer whom Trump said he never heard of shares picture of them together: 'Haven't forgotten

Source: The Hill

The former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) staffer who recently endorsed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden shared a picture of himself giving a thumbs up in the Oval Office with President Trump after Trump claimed he never heard of him.

“Alas, I’ll take the bait. Haven’t forgotten you though!” Miles Taylor wrote on Twitter.

“I guess the only way to prove it is to tell some stories," he added. "Maybe until the election. What do you think?”


In a statement to The Hill, a White House official said that "the president takes thousands of photos with individuals he does not know so {Trump's} tweet should not be that surprising."
