The one-time co-host of Fox News' The Five has risen the ranks of Trumpworld over the past few years, becoming both Donald Trump Jr.'s girlfriend and the Trump campaign's national finance chair. As Guilfoyle spoke before an empty convention room, the volume of her voice steadily rose until she was practically screaming into the camera about her undying love for America and President Donald Trump.
The wife of a veteran Miami police officer died after she became trapped in the rear of his patrol SUV, while he was asleep inside their home. On Friday, Clara Paulino died in the back seat of the police SUV in Miami Shores, Florida, as her husband, Aristides Paulino, slept inside their home after he had completed a night shift with the Miami-Dade Police Department. Mr Paulino left the SUV unlocked on the family's driveway, and the 56-year-old climbed into the rear of the vehicle while looking for something, but got trapped when the door closed, according to the Miami Herald.

Three construction workers were killed Tuesday morning after they got trapped in a sewer manhole in Indiana, officials say. The three men were working on a utility project in Columbia City, a city northwest of Fort Wayne, when they became stuck, according to a news release. “The city of Columbia City extends our heartfelt condolences to the families of those who lost their lives in a utility accident today, and to their employer,” Mayor Ryan Daniel said in a statement.
When two of the major broadcast networks—CBS and ABC—broke into their regular programming Monday to carry live portions of President Donald Trump's largely false musings after his official nomination, departing from their announced policy of giving only a hour of daily airtime to each party's political convention, the Biden-Harris campaign was not amused. Indeed, operatives for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were fuming Monday about a perceived lack of fairness in which the nation's major television outlets permitted Trump—in an ominous echo of the 2016 campaign in which the former reality-TV star received an estimated $2 billion of free airtime—to manipulate the media to his advantage. “It did not go unnoticed,” Biden-Harris campaign spokesman T.J. Ducklo said in a relatively diplomatic statement to The Daily Beast.
Gaza's militant Hamas rulers imposed a territory-wide curfew on Tuesday after authorities detected the first local cases of the coronavirus, raising fears of a wider outbreak in the blockaded territory that is home to some 2 million Palestinians. Gaza has registered more than 100 cases and a fatality since the start of the pandemic, but until now all the infections were linked to quarantine facilities for returning travelers. Early Wednesday, Gaza's health ministry announced the detection of two new cases at Shifa Complex, the largest hospital in the territory, and said they were unrelated to the four COVID-19 patients who were uncovered the previous day and marked the first community transmission.
In our series of letters from African journalists, Ismail Einashe looks at how some Italians are revaluating their colonial past in Africa. Rome's city council voted earlier this month to name a future metro station in the Italian capital in honour of Giorgio Marincola, an Italian-Somali who was a member of the Italian resistance. The station, which is currently under construction, was going to be called Amba Aradam-Ipponio - a reference to an Italian campaign in Ethiopia in 1936 when fascist forces brutally unleashed chemical weapons and committed war crimes at the infamous Battle of Amba Aradam.

One of the speakers for the second night of the Republican National Convention was pulled from the program after The Daily Beast surfaced a tweet from her, earlier in the day, urging her followers to investigate a supposed Jewish plot to enslave the world. Do yourself a favor and read this thread,” Mary Ann Mendoza, who is a member of the Trump campaign's advisory board, tweeted to her more than 40,000 followers Tuesday morning. Mendoza, an “angel mom,” was scheduled to speak Tuesday about her son's 2014 death at the hands of a drunk driver who was in the country illegally.
Hillary Clinton has urged Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to “not concede under any circumstances,” in November's presidential election, as she believes the results are “going to drag out,” because of mail-in voting. Officials from both the Democratic and Republican parties have called for voting by mail to be implemented for November's presidential election, due to logistical concerns around the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. However, Ms Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, told her former aide Jennifer Palmieri on Showtime's The Circus on Monday, that she believes the Republicans are attempting to “mess up” mail-in voting to gain “a narrow advantage in the elector...

He then came tumbling down the cliff and crashed about 100 feet, according to officials.
Both sides have confirmed a sexual component to the business relationship between Jerry and Becki Falwell and the young Fontainebleau Miami Beach employee they befriended on vacation. The hotel meeting spawned a “pool boy” saga with threads that included a corporate-jet getaway to meet future president Donald Trump and a hunt for racy photos in Miami by Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen. In a statement to the Washington Examiner, Jerry Falwell Jr. described an affair between Becki Falwell and Giancarlo Granda, whom they met when the 20-year-old from the Miami area was working as a pool attendant at the Fontainebleau.
After suffering a loss in the 2016 presidential election herself, Hillary Clinton is warning 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden not to concede “under any circumstances” in the upcoming election to avoid falling victim to Republican efforts to disrupt the vote count. In an interview with The Circus on Showtime, the former secretary of state accused Republicans of trying to “mess up” absentee balloting to gain “a narrow advantage in the electoral college.” “But because courts had ordered absentee ballots to be counted if they were postmarked on election day, Democrats actually won some important races there,” she said.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services canceled more than 13,000 employee furloughs Tuesday, averting a catastrophe for the cash-strapped agency that oversees the nation's legal immigration system. Officials said “unprecedented spending cuts” and a revenue increase allowed the agency to drop the furloughs, but they warned of longer wait times and further backlogs, including for those seeking work permits, green cards or citizenship. “Averting this furlough comes at a severe operational cost that will increase backlogs and wait times across the board, with no guarantee we can avoid future furloughs,” Joseph Edlow, USCIS deputy director for policy, said in a statement.
As the proud granddaughter of the man largely credited for beginning the evangelical movement, the late Billy Graham, the last few years have led me to reflect on how much has changed within that movement in America. Trump went so far as to brag about his plans, accomplishments and unholy actions towards the marginalized communities I saw my grandfather love and serve.

She is the first lady and the Trump campaign hopes Melania Trump won't be the administration's last with a 'secret weapon' speech on Tuesday that they are hoping will win over suburban women voters. Ms Trump's prime time pitch, expected to focus on her husband's female empowerment credentials, comes after a 2016 campaign speech that failed the inspire the same enthusiasm as the 2008 Michelle Obama address it was accused of plagiarising. Four years ago, Trump Organisation speechwriter Meredith McIver fell on her sword for inadvertently including parts of Ms Obama's Democratic National Convention speech in Ms Trump's opening night address to the Republican National Convention.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention quietly tweaked its guidance on COVID-19 testing Monday, making a change that could result in fewer people being tested and hinder contact tracing efforts. "It seems as though this new guidance is actively discouraging people from seeking testing, even if they have a known exposure," Angela Rasmussen, a research scientist at Columbia Public Health in New York City, said. President Donald Trump has been outspoken about his belief that the United States has the most COVID-19 cases in the world because of the number of tests it carries out.
