Russia Continues Interfering in Election to Try to Help Trump, U.S. Intelligence Says
But a new assessment says China would prefer to see the president defeated, though it is not clear Beijing is doing much to meddle in the 2020 campaign to help Joseph R. Biden Jr.

Lie, Deny and Hope For a Miracle Isn't Just Trump's Virus Plan—It's Also His Jobs Plan
Scott Olson/Getty ImagesMore than 32 million Americans are currently receiving some form of unemployment benefits and Thursday it was reported that another 1.2 million filed first-time unemployment claims in the past week—marking the 20th straight week that such claims exceeded one million. So what's Donald Trump's jobs plan? 

The same as his "plan" to address the COVID-19 health crisis: Lie, deny and hope things "miraculously" get better.  That approach didn't work with the virus and it's not going to work with our economy. 

Yet on Wednesday there was Trump in his safe space of Fox & Friends showcasing his COVID and economic "plans." First, Trump again spewed lies about the health risks posed by COVID-19 as he irresponsibly told parents that their children are "almost immune" to the virus—a lie so dangerous both Twitter and Facebook removed it. Then Trump shared his plan to help the millions of American out of work: Think about how good the economy used to be.  He offered zero proposals for how to create new jobs. Instead, he

DHS Initiating Crucial Research to Mitigate COVID-19
Washington - The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is conducting ongoing research that will help scientists better understand the coronavirus that causes the disease known as COVID-19, and methods to prevent its spread. In the Trump Administration's whole of government effort, this work is being done at the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC) laboratory in cooperation with the DHS Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office. As results become available, NBACC will provide updates on their findings to DHS and response agencies, especially those that may immediately impact efforts to mitigate transmission.

"With this critical research, we are advancing the country's top priority in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19," said William N. Bryan, DHS Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Under Secretary for Science and Technology. "This will help us understand many of the factors that influence the persistence of the virus on surfaces or in the air, and what methods are most effective for disinfecting potentially contaminated surfaces." 

There is currently only limited information available about the virus, so researchers at the NBACC are working very aggressively to answer the many questions experts have about its survivability and transmission. Using the lab's unique capabilities, the researchers are evaluating the impact of a range of conditions, like temperature and humidity, to determine the virus's survivability in the air, in respiratory fluids and on various types of surfaces.

The results of this work will provide essential information to protect those responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, including first responders and health care providers, as well as provide best practices for individuals to reduce potential for contamination. A disinfectant stu
