TALK OF THE MORNING

Why you will repeatedly hear the number 750 from Democrats:

 

 

The New York Times’s Russ Buettner, Susanne Craig and Mike McIntire obtained President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump admin to announce coronavirus vaccine will be covered under Medicare, Medicaid: report Election officials say they're getting suspicious emails that may be part of malicious attack on voting: report McConnell tees up Trump judicial pick following Supreme Court vote MORE’s highly sought-after tax returns from the past two decades. https://nyti.ms/3cA498Q 

The gist of the revelations: “Donald J. Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750. He had paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years — largely because he reported losing much more money than he made.”  

^Expect to repeatedly hear that $750 figure from Democrats on the campaign trail.

Put Workers First, Extend Payroll Support

 

 

Pilots — and the millions who rely on the airline industry directly or indirectly for employment — are counting on America’s leaders to extend the Payroll Support Program before Sept. 30. See why.



NEWS THIS MORNING

The Washington Post’s editorial board endorses:

The Washington Post’s editorial board announced its endorsement of Democratic presidential nominee Joe BidenJoe BidenDemocrats warn GOP will regret Barrett confirmation Trump campaign eyes election night party at his sold-out DC hotel Harris blasts GOP for confirming Amy Coney Barrett: 'We won't forget this' MOREhttps://wapo.st/2EKNKSA 

From the Post’s opinion board: “Democracy is at risk, at home and around the world. The nation desperately needs a president who will respect its public servants; stand up for the rule of law; acknowledge Congress’s constitutional role; and work for the public good, not his private benefit.” 

Read the board’s full reasoning for endorsing Bidenhttps://wapo.st/2EKNKSA

Every day would be ‘Take Your Daughter to Work Day!’:

According to a new book by President Trump’s former deputy campaign manager Rick GatesRick GatesSunday shows preview: Trump COVID-19 diagnosis rocks Washington, 2020 election The Hill's 12:30 Report - Sponsored by The Air Line Pilots Association -Trump enters debate week after NYT obtains his tax returns Trump suggested Ivanka as his 2016 running mate: book MORE, Trump considered naming his daughter Ivanka TrumpIvana (Ivanka) Marie TrumpObama to campaign for Biden in Orlando on Tuesday Lincoln Project attorney on billboards lawsuit threat: 'Please peddle your scare tactics elsewhere' Biden pushes back on Trump: 'Crass' to go after political rival's children MORE has his vice president in 2016. https://wapo.st/3ibdepF

From Trump in 2016, according to Gates: “I think it should be Ivanka. What about Ivanka as my VP? … She’s bright, she’s smart, she’s beautiful, and the people would love her!”

ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL

It’s chaos! Chaos, I tell you!:

Via The Hill’s Alexander Bolton, “Senators in both parties are bracing for what they fear will be a ‘chaotic’ election, heightening the stakes of next month’s Supreme Court confirmation battle.”  

How so: “President Trump has said he wants a ninth Supreme Court justice to be confirmed so that the court is full before it potentially has to make any decisions on an election. If Trump’s nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, is confirmed, it would cement a conservative majority on the court that would include three justices nominated by the president.” 

What to expect on Election Day: “Polls showing a close race against Democrat Joe Biden in several battleground states have lawmakers predicting the results won’t be known immediately after Election Day, particularly with millions expected to vote via mail-in ballots given the coronavirus pandemic.” 

The recipe for chaoshttps://bit.ly/36fxiVO

Redfield said about Atlas during a phone call: "Everything he says is false."
