"Republicans are now two parties, the party of Trump and the party of Never Trump, and the lines are more clearly defined than ever," writes ⁦ @danbalz ⁩. "To say Republicans face a time of testing and introspection understates the period ahead."

What's striking about the section announcing Bannon's pardon is it does not try to make an argument for it; it does not say he is innocent or has repented. All it says is "Mr. Bannon has been an important leader in the conservative movement and is known for his political acumen."

Among those granted clemency was William Walters, a wealthy sports gambler convicted in an insider-trading scheme, who paid tens of thousands of dollars to ex-Trump lawyer John Dowd to get him on Trump’s list. @maggieNYT  @kenvogel  @EricLiptonNYT  @nytmike

Jobs created during the first 21 months of Trump’s presidency and the final 21 months of Obama’s presidency: Trump: 4,054,000 Obama: 4,477,000 So job creation is no better now than it was under Obama. What is striking is that the recovery continues so long after it started.

Trump: “Countries where there have been very significant flareups over the last short period of time are Spain, Germany, France, Australia, Japan.” Coronavirus deaths reported on Aug. 1: US: 1,244 Spain: 0 Germany: 0 France: 11 Australia: 7 Japan: 1

Trump: "You know the way it was asked. I was looking at you." Reporter: "No you weren't sir. I wasn't there yesterday."
