a public health experiment what would happen if you packed thousands of people into an indoor arena many refusing to wear or take a minimal precautions for several hours of singing cheering i'm shouting in a city experiencing a surge in crude 1000 infection we should know in 2 to 3 weeks she every time see algis or. kalam held man is a political strategist she says trump was a pain to tell supporters how much he'd done for the black community well what's remarkable about donald trump is that he has inspired the largest black lives matter the largest movements in protests in u.s. history so 3 weeks of his sustained protests in major cities and small towns across the united states and if you look at what is different about this particular wave of protests i think it's because we've lived through 3 years of donald trump who overtly throws racist red meat to his base and if you look at numbers from 2016 we
10:06 am
know that people with high levels of racial resentment far more likely to turn out to vote for donald trump because he was the titular head of the birth or movement they tried to label our 1st black president has been born elsewhere he calls you know mexicans rapists he said a lot next judge couldn't do his job because he was like max he put up a muslim and put brown children in cages he said that the central park 5 his boys who've been wrongly convicted should still get the death penalty during his 2016 election he said that the white supremacists and charlotte's well you know good people on both sides he retreated a video of george floyd that showed that had the right wing commentators saying that somehow you know george floyd was not a good person insinuating that he may have deserved to be murdered by police so yeah his legacy is definitely tied to race but i would say it's the opposite of what he's claiming that he has actually made it so clear to white americans that racism is not a theoretical thing that they might you know know happens but they don't witness it
10:07 am
we have seen it in front of our very eyes he hasn't hidden it and so for that you know we can thank donald trump for moving the needle on anti-racist legislation further than anyone else simply because he has been so racist during his presidency . a town federal prosecutor in new york has agreed to step down after standoff with the u.s. attorney general jeffrey behrman had initially refused to resign volleying to continue his corruption investigations into people close to the u.s. president that's just one of the legal battles the white house has been fighting after he failed to block a tell all memoir by the former national security adviser mike hanna reports from washington he's. from bolton was president trump's 3rd national security adviser and had a front row seat to some of the administration's most sensitive then perhaps controversial decisions now he's set to release a book about what he witnessed and it's not good reading for the white house that's why it tried to stop the book's publication but
10:08 am
a federal judge has now ruled that while bolton had gambled with national security the administration had not shown how it would suffer harm if the publication of the book went ahead and he refused to grant an emergency injunction the phrase used by the judge was the horse is out of the barn he also indicated the administration may have had greater success if it had brought the injunction at the time that john bolton allegedly walked away from the review process and before the widespread publication of quotations from the book it's been a rocky few days for the attorney general william barr and his justice department late friday he tried to demote the prosecutor of new york's powerful southern district court. but jeffrey berman refused to step down they should just tell you that over the last night i have nothing to add to that. this morning i'm just here to do my job just waiting in his office though was a letter from the attorney general confirming that president trump had agreed to

10:10 am
like that ever highly classified as usual the response of the white house is to attack others president trump lashed out at john bolton in a series of tweets pointing to the judges criticism as i quote a big court when he continues bolton broke the law and has been called out in rebuked for so doing without really big price to pay he likes dropping bombs on people and killing them now he will have bombs dropped on him. for 30 hours a. week. we've got to think the federal judge has ensured the public will be able to read john bolton's allegations in full on tuesday that president trump appears adamant civil or criminal charges against the former national security adviser inevitable economic. washington. in other world news libya's un recognized government. of military intervention
