First GOP Congressman Says Trump’s Conduct Is Impeachable

Will Congressman Justin Amash's call for impeachment change anything?

I don't think it fundamentally changes anything. It gives Democrats a little cover to say there's bipartisan support for impeachment but not a lot of Republicans are going to jump on that train.

Can Joe Biden win in the industrial Midwest?

He absolutely can. He's got a lot of blue collar support. Trump's trade war is hurting him across the industrial Midwest. So Biden's a real threat to Trump there, if he gets the nomination.

Will abortion be a big issue in 2020?

Well now it will, with the restrictive law in Alabama and elsewhere. That's going to galvanize the women's vote. Probably get some evangelicals even more excited for Trump. So yes, big issue 2020.

Final question today is - The Rant. And my rant is on President Trump tweeting today about how all of Wall Street wanted to do business with him but he just liked Deutsche Bank better than the rest. Simply not true. Banks across Wall Street stopped doing business with Trump because he was too much of a risk. And they just didn't want his business. So surprise, surprise, Trump is tweeting things that aren't accurate.

Meet Mark Wetton, a Kentucky-based businessman who owns a dust-collection factory in Wuhan. He has been there since the beginning of the outbreak, and describes the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak there, life in lockdown, and what things are like today as the city finally begins to reopen its borders and come back to life. He also shares some lessons learned that he hopes Americans will heed.

The coronavirus is likely to hit poorer countries particularly hard, but it is also laying a bigger burden on working class people even in wealthy ones. As less affluent people suffer disproportionately not only from the disease, but also from the economic costs of containing it, we can expect a worsening of income inequalities that have already upended global politics over the past few years. Here is a look at inequality in some of the countries hardest hit by COVID-19 so far.

500 million: The economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic could plunge 500 million people into poverty, according to a new report released by Oxfam. As incomes and economies continue to contract, global poverty will increase for the first time in 30 years, the report predicts, undermining many of the gains of globalization that have pulled millions out of poverty in recent years.
