Trump calls GOP coronavirus proposal 'semi-irrelevant' as deal appears far off President Trump on Tuesday called the Senate Republicans' coronavirus relief package "semi-irrelevant" when asked whether he supported the legislation at a news conference, underscoring the deep divides between the White House, congressional Republicans and congressional Democrats as lawmakers scramble to pass something in the coming days. At the end of this week, extra unemployment benefits approved in previous legislation will expire just as millions of Americans will need to pay their rent. Yet Senate Republicans are struggling to rally behind their own $1 trillion proposal, as negotiations with Senate Democrats are set to ramp up. Then the bill will have to clear the Democrat-controlled House, which passed its own $3 trillion billion bill in May. Trump appeared to be attuned to that reality when asked whether there were any provisions in the GOP proposal that he doesn't support. "Yeah, there are, actually," Trump said.

European challenge comes up short on opening day of Breeders' Cup For the second year running, the European challenge on the first day of the Breeders’ Cup came up short on Friday, as second-place finishes for Aidan O’Brien’s Battleground and Mother Earth were the best that a strong list of contenders could muster. Battleground finished strongly from well off the pace but was still three lengths adrift of Mike Maker’s Fire At Will in the Juvenile Turf, while Jessica Harrington’s Cadillac finished fourth in the same race. Mother Earth, meanwhile, ran a similar race to Battleground’s behind the easy winner Aunt Pearl in the Juvenile Fillies’ Turf, with Miss Amulet, from Ken Condon’s stable in Ireland, back in third. Bookmakers saw no reason to alter Battleground’s price for next year’s 2,000 Guineas and he remains the 10-1 joint-favourite for the Classic with his stable companion, St Mark’s Basilica. Mother Earth remains a 20-1 chance for the 1,000 Guineas.

Trump campaign considering possible convention acceptance speech from White House lawn The Trump Campaign is considering the possibility of having President Trump deliver his convention acceptance speech from the South Lawn at the White House, a source familiar with the talks told Fox News on Tuesday. The source noted it’s just one of several options the campaign is considering, but told Fox News nothing has been finalized. The discussions come as the convention details remain in flux, and as the campaign and the Republican National Committee continue to adjust their plans amid the coronavirus pandemic. Last month, the Trump campaign and the RNC dramatically downscaled the convention by canceling planned celebratory events in Jacksonville, Fla., amid a surge in cases in the state, and refocused their attention to convention business back in the original convention site of Charlotte, N.C. The Washington Post first reported the South Lawn as a possible location for Trump’s nationally televised nomination acceptance speech. Fox News’ Paul Steinhauser contributed to this report.

bbc The rest of the NBA season is set to be played at Florida's Disney World Resort from 31 July. The season was suspended on 11 March because of coronavirus measures. Thirteen Western Conference teams and nine Eastern Conference teams will contest eight games each to determine seedings for the play-offs. Zak Hardaker try seals League Leaders' Shield as Wigan ease past Huddersfield Everyone associated with Wigan Warriors will be under no illusion that the bigger games, and the bigger prizes, are still to come in the weeks ahead. There has been a growing feeling that Wigan have been gradually moving through the gears as the play-offs approach: a trait they have certainly shown on plenty of occasions in the past. But this performance, which ultimately secured a first League Leaders’ Shield since 2012, and only a third since 2000, was in many ways a microcosm of their season. Make no mistake about it, Wigan were certainly tested against a Huddersfield side whose own season may not be over, despite the regular season coming to a hastily-arranged conclusion here.

Robert E Lee statue: Virginia governor announces removal of monument Image copyright EPA Virginia's Governor Ralph Northam has announced that a statue of Confederate General Robert E Lee will be removed from the state capital. The controversial statue will be put into storage "as soon as possible", the governor said. The monument has been vandalised during recent protests over the killing of African American George Floyd. Memorials to the Confederacy, which fought to keep black people as slaves, have long stirred controversy. At a news conference, a round of applause erupted when Governor Northam said the 12-ton statue would be removed.

Alexander Zverev played Jannik Sinner with breathing problems and fever Alexander Zverev has revealed that he competed while sick with breathing issues and fever during his 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 loss to Jannik Sinner of Italy in the Roland Garros fourth round. The 23-year-old received on-court treatment by a tournament doctor and he was pictured coughing after his first discussion with the medic while trailing 1-4 in the first set. He later said that he suffered a 38C fever on Saturday night, a possible symptom of Covid-19. US accuses Russia of conducting sophisticated disinformation and propaganda campaign Wednesday's report focuses in particular on the Russian government's use of this network to push disinformation about the coronavirus pandemic as it spread across the globe. It does not mention Russian disinformation in the context of the 2020 US presidential election as it falls outside of the mandate of the Department's Global Engagement Center (GEC), which focuses on foreign propaganda and disinformation aimed at foreign audiences. However, on the same day the report was released, the Department unveiled "a reward of up to $10M for information leading to the identification or location of any person who, acting at the direction or under the control of a foreign government, interferes with US elections by engaging in certain criminal cyber activities," in the words of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. "The Kremlin bears direct responsibility for cultivating these tactics and platforms as part of its approach to using information as a weapon," the report says.
