President Trump is visiting California today, “where he will be briefed on the devastating wildfires that have spread across the state,” Zachary Halaschak reports. “The president continues to support those who are battling raging wildfires in a locally executed, state-managed, and federally supported emergency response,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Judd Deere said.

“No one other than the shooter is responsible for the gunfire ambush Saturday of two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car. But the same can’t be said for the protesters who blocked the entrance to the hospital where the two are being treated, and chanted ‘we hope they die,'” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes.
Nineteen years after Jason Thomas helped rescue two Port Authority police officers from the wreckage of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, “President Donald Trump singled out his heroism during a speech to mark ‘American courage and sacrifice’ in a Pennsylvania field where one of the four hijacked planes crashed after its crew and passengers charged the cockpit,” Sabrina Eaton writes for Cleveland.com.

|President Trump just signed an executive order expanding the White House Hispanic Prosperity Initiative, which will help every member of our country’s proud Hispanic community prosper and achieve the American Dream.|
The order will encourage pro-growth, pro-family, and pro-community policies such as school choice, personalized learning, family engagement, civic education, and more.
“Hispanic Americans are not only living the American Dream, but their incredible efforts are unlocking the American Dream for citizens all across our land,” President Trump says.
🎬 Watch: How President Trump’s executive order benefits the Hispanic community
Hispanic-American workers and families have thrived under President Trump’s agenda. Before the Coronavirus pandemic, the Hispanic unemployment rate reached a record low of 3.9 percent, and it remained under 5 percent for 23 consecutive months.
In 2018, the poverty rate for Hispanic Americans reached its lowest level on record, and since 2016, nearly 611,000 Hispanic Americans have been lifted out of poverty.
As the Coronavirus spread from China across the globe, President Trump worked tirelessly to ensure that all Americans could get back to work as quickly as possible. As a result, Hispanic employment increased by a sum of more than 2.1 million in May and June. This Administration won’t stop until every American is back on the job.
🎬 President Trump: We will never let public charter schools be taken away!
And with today’s actions, America will continue to be a land of opportunity for our incredible Hispanic community, as well as for every other American family.
School choice is a big part of that vision. Nearly one-third of all students in U.S. public charter schools are Hispanic. President Trump is expanding educational opportunities for these students and others, both with today’s executive order as well as through restoring local control and ending federal overreach in education more broadly.
Community development is another crucial component. Under President Trump, new jobs and investments have poured into nearly 9,000 designated “Opportunity Zones,” which together are home to more than 9 million Hispanic Americans.
President Trump is lifting up and empowering Hispanic Americans!

“The Trump administration announced Monday executive and regulatory action that will suspend guest worker visas through the end of the year and permanently end the exploitation of the H-1B visa system. Together, these actions go further than any administration in history toward prioritizing American jobs,” Rachel Bovard writes in USA Today.
“Fury exploded outside the Wisconsin State Capitol on Tuesday night as protesters smashed windows at the statehouse, attacked a state senator, and tore down two iconic statues—including one of an abolitionist who died trying to end slavery during the Civil War,” Molly Beck and Lawrence Andrea report for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“The ignorance and nihilism of those who would tear the [Emancipation Memorial] statue down dishonor the freed slaves who created it and are remembered by it, the man who dedicated it, and the president who freed them. It deserves to stand forever, a silent monument whose history and character speak louder than anyone who would destroy it,” Jack Butler writes for National Review.

BREAKING NEWS: President Trump Signs Order To Fight Online Censorship
|Moments ago in the Oval Office, President Trump signed an Executive Order to fight online censorship by technology corporations, including social media platforms.|
Tech bias is a major issue facing our democracy. It challenges the free exchange of ideas and public debate that protects our civil liberties. Every citizen—liberal, conservative, or otherwise—has a right to be heard and treated fairly online.
🎬 WATCH: President Trump announces executive action to fight online censorship
In the next few hours, you may hear a lot about this Executive Order. Leftwing media will claim it addresses a fake problem because tech bias doesn’t exist. Democrats in Congress will say the President is exceeding his authority. Some in the Beltway establishment will say the order doesn’t do that much in the first place.
All of these are lies. Here are a few of the key actions in President Trump’s order:Makes it U.S. policy that platforms who selectively edit, censor, or are not acting in “good faith” with regards to content will not receive the liability protection included in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act
Directs the Commerce Department to petition the FCC to make clarifying rules on Section 230 in line with U.S. policy
Helps stop millions of taxpayer dollars from being wasted by federal agencies on advertising with biased social media platforms
Ensures the Justice Department will review more than 16,000 complaints about politically motivated censorship that were collected by the White House in advance of a Social Media Summit held last year
Mobilizes State Attorneys General—who have massive subpoena and consumer protection authorities—to ensure social media platforms are not engaging in unfair or deceptive acts or practices
Acts as federal law and lists the many ways in which tech platforms act with bias against viewpoints they disagree with
Massive corporations that treat millions of American citizens unfairly shouldn’t expect special privileges and protections under the law. With President Trump’s Executive Order today, our country is one step closer to having an honest, fair public debate.
