How will the mass shootings impact the presidential race?

How will the mass shootings impact the presidential race?

Well clearly it makes gun control more of an issue for Democrats. But more broadly, they'll take the case directly to President Trump as Beto O'Rourke did over the weekend blaming his rhetoric and actions for an increase in hate and violence in the country.

Will there be gun control legislation after these attacks?

No, there won't. There hasn't been after any of the other recent attacks which happened over and over and this time will be any different.

Is the trade war with China getting worse?

Yes quite clearly it's getting worse. China's move to devalue its currency. That means tariffs that Trump puts in place are less of an impact for China. They're not backing down and it will get worse.

The Rant: Trump and White Supremacy?

The rant today is on President Trump's comments from the White House today where he quite rightly slammed white supremacy and racism and said it has no place in this country. It came from the same president who hours earlier on Twitter blamed the news media in part for these attacks. I think we should pay attention to Twitter Trump and not teleprompter Trump.

Empathy and listening are key to establishing harmonious relationships, as demonstrated by Callista Azogu, GM of Human Resources & Organization for Nigerian Agip Oil Company (NAOC), an Eni subsidiary in Abuja. "To build trust is very difficult. To destroy it is very easy," says Callista, whose busy days involve everything from personnel issues to union relationships. She sees great potential for her native Nigeria not only because of the country's natural resources, but because of its vibrant and creative people.

And as a result, much of the developing world will have to wait even longer for their turn. Part of the challenge, World Bank President David Malpass says, is that "advanced economies have reserved a lot of the vaccine doses." Malpass sat down with Ian Bremmer recently to talk about what his organization is doing to try to keep millions around the world from slipping deeper into poverty during the pandemic. Their conversation was part of the latest episode of GZERO World.

For the first time in twenty years, extreme poverty around the world is growing. How does the developing world recover from a pandemic that has brought even the richest nations to their knees?

He joins Ian Bremmer on GZERO World to talk about how his organization is trying to keep the developing world from slipping further into poverty in the wake of a once-in-a-century pandemic.

Joe Biden wants to move into the White House, but the coast isn't clear. He may need some bleach.
