    CDC Director Robert Redfield has walked back his Senate testimony that masks work better against COVID-19 than vaccines, after Donald Trump called him 'confused' and 'mistaken' and dismissed his claims a vaccine will not be available until next year. Redfield told a Senate committee Wednesday 'this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine' and said a vaccine wouldn't be widely available to Americans until the second quarter of 2021.   Hours later Trump hit back at Redfield saying the CDC head was 'confused' and must have 'misunderstood' the question being asked of him. The president said he had called Redfield to set the record straight and said the CDC boss had agreed...
    Former RNC chair Michael Steele expressed his dismay and disgust over President Donald Trump’s assault on science and his own CDC director, and bemoaned the fact that the attack would have no effect on his loyal base — even amid a global pandemic. After Dr. Robert Redfield contradicted the president’s narrative on both the timing of a Covid vaccine rollout as well as the efficacy of mask wearing at a Senate hearing on Wednesday, Trump very clearly tried to walk back his own CDC director’s under-oath testimony while appearing to differentiate the relevance of Americans deaths in red vs. blue states. Redfield however, after his public dressing down, notably released a statement later that same day that did not bend to Trump’s claims...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden will make his first campaign stop in Minnesota this Friday in Duluth. His campaign says he will tour a union training center in the afternoon, then deliver remarks afterwards. The times and locations for both visit stops have not been released. The visit from the former vice president will come just nine days after his wife, Jill Biden, stumped in the Twin Cities. Donald Trump Jr. also visited that same day for a rally in Duluth, and President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, campaigned in the Twin Cities the following day. Minnesota is seen as a battleground state in this year’s presidential election, with Democrats increasingly concerned President Trump...
    Donald Trump has repeatedly clashed over the deadline for delivering a U.S. health official Corona antiviral drug The effectiveness of masks in the general population and in stopping the spread of the disease. The U.S. president said Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the CDC, was wrong when he told Congress that a vaccine would not be widely available before the middle of next year. “We think we can start [distributing a vaccine] Sometimes in October, mid-October. It may be a little later than that. He said this at a news conference late on Wednesday. Mr Trump added: “I think he did something wrong. He said it was misinformation. I think he may have...

'Maybe he misunderstood both of them,' he said of the two newsy questions posed to Redfield by...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden says he trusts the scientists -- not President Trump -- when it comes to producing a safe and effective coronavirus vaccine. The former vice president, speaking and taking questions from reporters in Delaware on Wednesday after sitting down for a coronavirus pandemic briefing with his team of health experts, also stressed that the efforts to produce and distribute a vaccine for COVID-19 should not be “distorted by political considerations.” Biden accused Trump of “feckless inaction” in combating the outbreak and charged that the president had undercut the use of masks, which he called “the easiest, most effective means we have of reducing the spread of this disease.” TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR EVENTUAL VACCINE ROLLOUT FOR...
    President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a White House press conference at 5:00 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday. The president is likely to address this week’s peace deal between Israel, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. Members of the media expressed more interest in other topics during a briefing earlier in the afternoon with White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, focusing almost exclusively on the coronavirus pandemic. Centers for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield told Congress shortly before McEnany’s briefing that he believed face masks were a more effective countermeasure in battling the virus than any vaccine that could be developed in the future, undermining comments the president made during a Tuesday evening forum with ABC News in which he...
    Joe Biden spoke Wednesday about the work underway for a coronavirus vaccine and said that people should not take President Donald Trump’s word for it when one becomes available without transparency and independent approval from top scientists. He talked about the likely timeline and said it would take months to distribute a vaccine, before adding, “We can’t allow politics to interfere with the vaccine in any way. Americans have had to endure President Trump’s incompetence and dishonesty when it comes to testing and personal protective equipment. We can’t afford to repeat those fiascos when it comes to a vaccine when it occurs.” “Let me be clear,” Biden continued. “I trust vaccines, I trust scientists, but I don’t trust Donald...
    Getty Former UFC interim welterweight champion Colby Covington revealed to Heavy that all those stories going around on social media and at various news sites saying he “appears to try and kiss” President Donald Trump’s hand at a recent political rally in Las Vegas were examples of political bias in the media. “I was giving him his respect,” Covington said. “I wasn’t kissing his hand.” Covington told Heavy he was “bowing” to Trump as a sign of respect. “I was just bowing to him,” Covington said. “I shook his hand and bowed to the president because he’s…the most powerful man in the world.” You can watch the “somewhat awkward handshake” between Covington and the president below to judge...

    Undecided voters at Donald Trump's town hall on Tuesday night gave him a thumbs down after his responses to their questions, with one voter saying she was now going to vote for Joe Biden and another accusing the president of 'lying through his teeth.' In the 90-minute town hall meeting in Philadelphia, Trump dismissed his own quotes in Bob Woodward's book that he downplayed the threat of the coronavirus, claiming instead he 'up-played' and told a black voter he hoped there wasn't a race problem in the country. Paul Tubiana of Bethlehem, Penn., who asked the first question to the president about his COVID response, told CNN after the town hall: 'He didn't answer anything. He was lying through his teeth.'  Tubiana...

But Democratic nominee Joe Biden leads in the polls in all three states with less than 50 days to go until Election Day.   'Florida's of great importance. Arizona's of great importance. We're going to make sure we continue to campaign in those states,' Pence told The Hill newspaper of the 'must-win' states for President Donald Trump. 'We're actually looking at expanding the map now. I've been campaigning in Minnesota. So has the president,' Pence said. 'We think Minnesota is in play.' Vice President Mike Pence said the Trump...
    President Donald Trump wants my spelling to clean up a little bit. Early Wednesday morning, I was picking up some medicine when a co-worker told me my Twitter mentions were about to explode. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Before I even knew what he was talking about, I saw a tweet from Trump correcting my spelling of the word “cratered” in response to NFL ratings. Yes, a man in possession of a briefcase holding nuclear launch codes let me know on Twitter that I’d spelled “cratered” incorrectly. Check out the majestic tweet below. “Cratered”.

    Debra Messing pulled no punches in her criticism of President Trump on Tuesday, going as far as to repeatedly tweet that he is a rapist and a pedophile. The “Will & Grace” actress is rarely shy about making her distaste for the president and his administration known on social media. In the past, she’s directly blamed Trump for the many American deaths caused by the coronavirus, likened him to Adolph Hitler and condemned his family members. Her latest rebuke of the president saw her repeatedly use hashtags like “#TrumpIsARapist” and “#TrumpIsaPedo” in what appears to be an attempt to get them trending on social media. She opened her Twitter tirade on Tuesday by sharing a video that depicts his past...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — President Donald Trump is back at the White House after a quick visit to Philadelphia Tuesday afternoon for a town hall at the National Constitution Center. He arrived aboard Air Force One at Philadelphia International Airport around 4:40 p.m. He then made his way to the National Constitution Center for a town hall event with undecided voters.

    President Donald Trump angrily slammed The Atlantic's report that said he called dead American soldiers 'losers' and 'suckers' after a voter at ABC News' Tuesday night town hall asked how he'd win back military support.   'It's easy,' he declared. 'Because I never made those statements. They were never made by me.'  The president also gave new information about one of the most memorable anecdotes from the piece - which claimed he skipped visiting an American cemetery in France because he didn't want to get his hair wet.  'I wanted to go anyway. I said let me just go separately in a car in disguise, I don't care. I wanted to be there so badly,' Trump went on. 'But the statements never...
    President Donald Trump on Tuesday questioned why former Vice President Joe Biden used the term “Harris-Biden” to describe his presidential ticket. “Harris – who he, today, said ‘Harris/Biden’ because he thinks she’s president,” he said. “Someday you’ll have to explain that one to me.” Trump commented on Biden’s statement during a town hall with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday evening. Biden made the remark on Tuesday afternoon during a roundtable with veterans. “The Harris-Biden administration will relaunch that effort and make it easier for military spouses and veterans meaningful careers, to ensure teachers know how to support military children in the classroom, and to improve support for caregivers and survivors so much more than we do now,” the...
    A Philadelphia-based Black pastor confronted President Donald Trump at Tuesday night's ABC News town hall telling him that the 'Make America Great Again' slogan is 'tone deaf.' 'When has America been great for African Americans in the ghetto of America? Are you aware of how tone deaf that comes off the African American community?' Pastor Carl Day told Trump.  He also pointed out that Trump hadn't acknowledged America's race problem, to which the president replied, 'Well I hope there's not a race problem.'  'I can tell you, there's none with me,' Trump said.  The town hall, pre-taped in Philadelphia and then broadcast several hours later, had undecided voters pose questions to Trump, with ABC News' George Stephanopoulos there to moderate...
    Photograph: Yuri Gripas/EPA Donald Trump falsely claimed he did not downplay the coronavirus pandemic at a town hall Tuesday night, saying, “Actually, in many ways, I up-played it, in terms of action.” His remarks came in response to an uncommitted voter at the ABC News event, who asked Trump why he would “downplay a pandemic that is known to disproportionately harm low-income families and minority communities”. The president said he did not minimize the threat of the virus: “My action was very strong. I’m not looking to be dishonest. I don’t want people to panic.” Trump’s misleading response comes one week after the investigative journalist, Bob Woodward, revealed that the president explicitly admitted to downplaying the virus in interviews...
    President Donald Trump attacked the Nevada governor after a clash over social distancing at his campaign rallies – then said he should not be ‘in charge’ of ballots in his state. Trump blasted Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak Tuesday as he left the White House for a town hall event, interweaving complaints about his recent campaign rally and attacks on mail-in voting there. ‘The ballots are going to be a disaster for our country and the governor of Nevada should not be in charge of ballots,’ Trump said. His comments come days after longtime Trump advisor Roger Stone said U.S. Marshalls should seize ballots in the state on Election Day, and even said the president should consider imposing martial law. Stone...

    Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

    President Donald Trump appeared on Fox News’ Fox & Friends on Tuesday morning, and he apparently has plans to make it a regular thing. But while expressing his intention to do a weekly segment, host Steve Doocy shot the president down. As The Hill reported, Trump declared during a phone call with the network that the conversation was just “like the old days” and he wanted to do it weekly. Doocy replied that he wasn’t aware of that fact and that it was an exclusive breaking right on the air. After claiming once again that his opponent Joe Biden should be required to be drug tested and suggesting that he wanted to assassinate Bashar al-Assad, Trump reiterated his claim toward...
    From Michael Gerson, former speechwriter for George W. Bush, on Donald Trump’s racist attempts to scare white suburban women: “If I don’t win,” Trump alleges, “America’s Suburbs will be OVERRUN with Low Income Projects, Anarchists, Agitators, Looters and, of course, ‘Friendly Protesters.’ ” There is no possible interpretation of “Low Income Projects” in this context that does not involve the incitement of racism. The same might be said for the use of “Looters” and “Protesters.” Trump is conflating protests against racial injustice with criminal activity and warning that angry faces are coming to suburbia if Biden wins. Elsewhere, Trump has warned that “low income housing and projects” will undermine the “American Dream.” Note Trump’s consistent use of the word “projects,” which...
    President Donald Trump said during a call-in interview he will appear on Fox News each Monday on a weekly basis – although TV co-hosts cautioned during a live interview that it is only on a 'case-by-case basis. Trump gushed about his new weekly gig on the network during a 47-minute call-in interview, where he was able to talk at length while firing his typical blasts at rival Joe Biden and predecessor Barack Obama.    'Great to be with my friends. I think we're going to do this, we've agreed to do it once a week in the morning, and I look forward to it like the old days,' Trump said on 'Fox and Friends.' He may have been referencing a weekly...

    Sen. Patty Murray late Monday night demanded the immediate firing of Michael Caputo, the top communications official at the Health and Human Services Department, after the former Trump campaign aide over the weekend launched into an unhinged tirade accusing CDC scientists of “sedition” against the president and urging White House supporters to “buy ammunition” in preparation for a post-election conflict. During a Facebook live session Sunday that has since been removed from the social media platform along with his entire personal account, Caputo baselessly claimed that “there are hit squads being trained all over this country” to prevent President Donald Trump reelection. Without a shred of evidence, Caputo also accused the CDC of forming a “resistance unit” to harm the...
    'Rage' author Bob Woodward's latest tape reveals President Donald Trump confessing to fleeing from the Oval Office after someone sneezed because the coronavirus was so contagious.  'I was in the White House a couple of days ago, meeting with 10 people in the Oval Office and a guy sneezed innocently, not a horrible, you know, just a sneeze,' Trump is heard telling Woodward in a tape dated April 13. 'The entire room bailed out, OK, including me, by the way.' The timing is significant because the conversation happened the same day Trump declared that he had 'the ultimate authority' to push states to reopen their economies, which he was pressing them to do.   'Rage' author Bob Woodward debuted another...
