TRUMP CLEARED TO HOLD TULSA RALLY DESPITE FEARS OF COVID
WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump can go ahead with plans for a campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday, after the state’s supreme court rejected a plea by residents who said holding the event at a 19,000seat indoor arena posed a risk of spreading the coronavirus.
The court said the residents failed to make a legal argument for the rally to be stopped. The rally is Trump’s first major re-election event following the coronavirus pandemic that shuttered much of the country and comes amid weeks of civil unrest.
JUDGE ALLOWS RELEASE OF JOHN BOLTON’S BOOK
A US judge refused on Saturday to block the release of a tell-all book in which John Bolton, Trump’s former NSA, describes him as corrupt and incompetent.
The book, titled The Room Where it Happened, has been widely shipped to bookstores for publication on Tuesday and many of its most damning allegations against Trump have been reported. AGENCIES
