We Want Unity: Trump Says in Salute to America Speech

President Donald Trump declared on July 4 that the America he is working for “wants unity,” and that “no matter our race, color, religion, or creed, we are one America, and we put America first.” The president was speaking on Saturday evening from the White House South Lawn in Washington following a performance from the military band, flyovers by B-52 bombers, F-35 fighter jets and more, as well as parachute jumps. Trump started by thanking the scientists and researchers “around the country and even around the world” for their courageous efforts in battling the virus, and welcomed some who were attending the event. “These are great and brilliant people. And brave people,” he said.

5G was going to unite the world—instead its tearing us apart

EnlargeGetty Images | Photographer is my life The world came together to build 5G. Now the next-generation wireless technology is pulling the world apart. The latest version of the 5G technical specifications, expected Friday, adds features for connecting autonomous cars, intelligent factories, and Internet-of-things devices to crazy-fast 5G networks. The blueprints reflect a global effort to develop the technology, with contributions from more than a dozen companies from Europe, the US, and Asia. And yet, 5G is also pulling nations apart—with the United States and China anchoring the tug-of-war. Tensions between Washington and Beijing over trade, human rights, the handling of COVID-19, and Chinese misinformation are escalating global divisions around the deployment of 5G. A growing number of countries are aligning with either a Western or a Chinese version of the tech. "National security and commercial interests are all entangled, and it's very hard to separate them," says Sco..

Here in July, we should already be midway through the season. But the sport only waved the green flag in early June, starting a condensed 14-race season that wraps up—hopefully—in Florida in October. It promises to be hard work for the drivers; with no power steering and high cornering loads, an IndyCar requires more muscles to drive than most race cars. "The challenge in driving an IndyCar is that, at 200 miles an hour, it produces 5,000 pounds of downforce. I've got 750 horsepower under my right foot, and I have no power steering, no power brake. Plus the adrenaline and the physiological response to competition means that during a race my average he..

Kimberly Guilfoyle, Girlfriend of Trumps Son, Tests Positive for CCP Virus

Kimberly Guilfoyle tested positive for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, an official with a joint fundraising group with President Donald Trumps reelection campaign said. Guilfoyle, 51, is a fundraiser for Trumps campaign. She is also the girlfriend of Trumps eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. Guilfoyle was “immediately isolated to limit any exposure,” Sergio Gor, finance chief of staff for Trump Victory Finance Committee 2020, said in a statement to news outlets. “Shes doing well, and will be retested to ensure the diagnosis is correct since shes asymptomatic,” he added.

In a speech at Mount Rushmore on the eve of July 4, President Donald Trump celebrated Americas heritage and echoed the values, ideals, and freedoms enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, while calling on patriots to stand up to “cancel culture” and what he called “a new far-left fascism.” Standing before a crowd of 7,500, Trump signaled the significance of Mount Rushmore, which depicts former U.S. Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. “There could be no better place to celebrate Americas independence than beneath this magnificent, incredible, majestic mountain and monument to the greatest Americans who ever lived,” the president said on Friday in his speech, following a military flyover.
