'We have to shut down white supremacy': O'Rourke

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Sunday told people at a town hall in Tulsa, Oklahoma that it was 'not enough to not to be racist', but the country had to be 'anti-racist'.

On Sunday, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke attacked President Donald Trump for what O'Rourke said was the white supremacy he espoused and he also called on the country to 'shut down white nationalism.'

"We're going to connect the dots for our fellow Americans, we're going to say that the President's racism, his hatred, the white supremacy that he espouses, it does not just offend our sensibilities, it fundamentally changes who we are," O'Rourke said." Last Friday, O'Rourke unveiled a plan to classify white supremacist violence as an organized crime problem and to create federal domestic terrorism offices, in a bid to combat hate crimes and gun violence in the United States.

Trump's anti-immigrant rhetoric and focus on the grievances of white voters helped him win the 2016 election.

But a Reuters analysis of public opinion over the last four years suggests that Trump's brand of white identity politics may be less effective in the 2020 election campaign.

The analysis comes amid widespread criticism of Trump's racially charged comments about four minority women lawmakers and the fallout from a mass shooting of Hispanics in El Paso, Texas, that many Democratic presidential candidates swiftly blamed on the president's rhetoric.

Reuters/Ipsos polling of 4,436 U.S. adults in July showed that people who rejected racial stereotypes were more interested in voting in the 2020 general election than those who expressed stronger levels of anti-black or anti-Hispanic biases.

Tremendous work on non-vaccine treatment: Donald Trump on US' Covid response

Donald Trump, President of the United States of America, commented on the progress of research to stop the Covid-19 pandemic. Commenting on the race to develop a vaccine, he said that many companies are close to creating a successful one.

The US military is prepared to carry out distribution of a vaccine once it gets requisite clearance, said Trump. He also said that 'tremendous work' is being done on therapeutics, or non-vaccine treatment. The US government is looking at such methods 'very, very strongly'. The nation's Covid case tally has crossed 45 lakh, the highest in the world, with over 1.52 lakh deaths so far. The pandemic is set to be the biggest issue, apart from alleged discrimination against African-Americans, in the upcoming Presidential polls in the US. Elections are slated to be held in November 2020, although Trump has called for a postponement which was met with stern opposition. Watch the full video for more.
