Israel’s defense minister, Benny Gantz, is apologizing for the deadly shooting of an unarmed, Palestinian man with autism by Israeli police officers. The shooting of Iyad Halak, 32, revived complaints alleging excessive force by Israeli security forces.

The condemnation of Floyd's death has been more universal, because the "heat of the moment" argument often made in defense of police shootings is missing. Cop had 9 mins to rethink what he was doing, but kept choking & this comes after Eric Garner showed these holds can kill.

RIP to Sean “Nitty” Reese, one of the best players on one of the best teams I covered. He was a star on Perry’s Blue Steeldefense that didn’t give up a point in the City League in 2002. And he sent me this message when I was laid off in March.

Mayor de Blasio announced an investigation into the NYPD's aggressive conduct during George Floyd protests. He's facing outrage over his defense of the department, including a police car that drove into protestors blocking a street.

I do not understand the reluctance to use the federal Defense Production Act to manufacture ventilators. If not now, when?

I voted against the Defense of Marriage Act. Biden voted for it. I voted against the war in Iraq. Biden voted for it. I voted against NAFTA and PNTR. Biden voted for them. It takes courage sometimes to do the right thing. #DemDebate 

Let’s try this again, @realDonaldTrump : Hospitals are already running out of ventilators and beds. Nurses are using bandanas as masks. If you’ve already ordered more with the Defense Production Act, tell us now. If you haven’t, you’re failing to lead and failing Americans.

Just so we're all clear, Trump says he won't use the Defense Protection Act to order companies to make more equipment to save lives because he "doesn’t want to interfere in the free market." Explain to me how bailing out corporations isn't interfering in the free market?

I only signed the Defense Production Act to combat the Chinese Virus should we need to invoke it in a worst case scenario in the future. Hopefully there will be no need, but we are all in this TOGETHER!

I’m calling on the Federal Government to nationalize the medical supply chain. The Federal Government should immediately use the Defense Production Act to order companies to make gowns, masks and gloves. Currently, states are competing against other states for supplies.

I will be signing our 738 Billion Defense Spending'>Dollar Defense Spending Bill today. It will include 12 weeks Paid Parental Leave, gives our troops a raise, importantly creates the SPACE FORCE, SOUTHERN BORDER WALL FUNDING, repeals “Cadillac Tax” on Health Plans, raises smoking age to 21! BIG!

A quick update on our national security leadership: Defense Secretary: Vacant. DHS Secretary: Vacant. UN Ambassador: Vacant. FEMA Director: Vacant. Secret Service Director: Vacant. ICE Director: Vacant. DHS Deputy: Vacant. President: Present, but unaccounted for.

Last night I was so proud to have signed the largest Defense Bill ever. The very vital Space Force was created. New planes, ships, missiles, rockets and equipment of every kind, and all made right here in the USA. Additionally, we got Border Wall (being built) funding. Nice!

Here are my takeaways: Trump’s lawyers cannot, and did not, defend him on the facts. Their defense has evolved to this: he did it, so what? His lawyers strengthened our case that the Senate must hear from Bolton. A fair trial requires key witnesses. Will America have one?
