Biden aides tell me @DrBiden  will speak about education through the lens of COVID and the leadership she feels is needed to get kids back to the classroom. She’ll talk about @JoeBiden  the father, the husband and the man, per aides.

From @albamonica , @PeterAlexander , @HallieJackson , @KellyO  and myself:Multiple senior campaign officials tell NBC News there are no plans to delay @realDonaldTrump ’s address with one saying definitively: “The President’s acceptance speech will happen as scheduled Thursday night.”

I am so honored to receive this award and am looking forward to Thursday!


When I asked @realDonaldTrump  if he’s further enflaming tensions by deploying the military he sushed me. Declined to answer all other questions.

When I asked @POTUS  if the buck stops with him he tells me: “The buck stops with everyone.”

In a dinner w/ military officials @POTUS  says" this is the calm before the storm." When I asked 'what storm?' He replied " you'll find out."

In response to @realDonaldTrump  saying many front-line workers take Hydroxychloroquine: “The American Nurses Association has not received reports from nurses or other frontline healthcare workers utilizing Hydroxychloroquine as a preventative treatment for COVID-19.”

A fmr Clinton Campaign official says news of Donald Trump Jr. emails "is the SNL version of what we always suspected was going on."

Source familiar confirms the scoop by @_Cappadonna_  that h @realDonaldTrumps  called Roger Stone to tell him his sentence will be commuted. Source says to expect official announcement soon.

Giuliani said he made aware of paperwork that showed payments were actually reimbursements for Stormy. Trump replied: ‘Oh my goodness, I guess that's what it was for,’” Giuliani said.

My colleague @PeterAlexander  asked a fair question to @POTUS  about his message to Americans who are afraid. @POTUS  chose to instead go into attack mode. Many Americans would probably like to hear that message.

Moments ago I asked “yes or no” if he’s ever worked for Russia. His response: “I have never worked for Russia.” He also said it’s a “disgrace” that I asked the question.
