Gov. Ron DeSantis expects late this month to reinstate a requirement that people in the unemployment system submit weekly “work search” updates. Referring to some businesses saying they are unable to find new employees as they regroup from the COVID-19 pandemic, DeSantis said Wednesday unemployment claimants will likely have to start showing how they looked for work once an executive order waiving a work-search requirement ends May 29. “We suspended that last year at this time because, quite frankly, there weren't jobs,” DeSantis said during an appearance at the Satellite Beach Police Department.

El Salvador's President Nayib Bukele has a 90 percent popularity rate in his country, perhaps the highest one in the region. On May 1, Bukele's New Ideas Party's congressional majority fired five key members of the Supreme Court and the country's attorney general, in what most legal scholars agree was an unconstitutional move. The Supreme Court had ruled several times that Bukele, 39, had overstepped his executive powers, and the ousted attorney general was investigating Bukele's ministers for alleged corruption.

Unpacking Trump's argument: The comments submitted for Trump claimed that it was "stunningly clear that in his speech there was no call to insurrection, no incitement to violence, and no threat to public safety in any manner" and described a “total absence of any serious linkage between the Trump speech and the Capitol building incursion.”
