President Donald Trump transformed an event that was supposed to highlight his China policy into an impromptu campaign rally on Tuesday, delivering an expansive and often meandering broadside against Democratic rival Joe Biden on trade, policing and his son's business practices, among other topics. The president traded the arena-style rallies he favors for the sun-drenched heat of the typically apolitical White House Rose Garden. The shift presented a challenge for a president who thrives on the validation of his supporters and uses their energy to propel his White House bid.
CNN anchor Brianna Keilar on Wednesday clashed with a Republican state lawmaker who is suing over mask mandates, eventually pointing out that he is not a “public health expert” while noting he's already had one case tossed out.

Appearing on CNN Newsroom, Sabatini immediately justified his lawsuits, claiming the ordinances are “unconstitutional” and that mask mandates violate the privacy of citizens.

About 600 undercover officers from the unit were set to be transferred to other assignments including detective work and policing neighborhoods, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said a month ago.

Roger Stone, the self-proclaimed dirty trickster whose sentence for lying to Congress was recently commuted by President Donald Trump, complained to Fox News' Sean Hannity on Monday night that the “system” was “fixed.” Days before Stone was to report to prison for 40 months, the president finally did what he had long hinted at, and commuted his longtime adviser's sentence, describing Stone as “a victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump Presidency.” In Stone's first television interview since he was spared jail, he immediately praised Hannity and fellow Fox News host Tucker Carlson, a longtime friend of Stone's, for advocating for his clemency.

More and more research is starting to point toward the idea that people could get the novel coronavirus a second time. One leading virus expert said that, for this reason, "there's not much we can do until there's a vaccine" to create herd immunity. Roughly six months into the coronavirus pandemic, emerging evidence is starting to suggest that people who've been infected with this virus could still be susceptible to getting it again.
An oil tanker sought by the U.S. over allegedly circumventing sanctions on Iran was hijacked on July 5 off the coast of the United Arab Emirates, a seafarers organization said Wednesday.

It wasn't immediately clear what happened aboard the Dominica-flagged MT Gulf Sky, though its reported hijacking comes after months of tensions between Iran and the U.S. David Hammond, the CEO of the United Kingdom-based group Human Rights at Sea, said he took a witness statement from the captain of the MT Gulf Sky, confirming the ship had been hijacked.
