TRUMP CLEARED TO HOLD TULSA RALLY DE­SPITE FEARS OF COVID

Hindustan Times (Jalandhar) - - HTWORLD -

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
