New York City is reviewing its contracts with Donald Trump following comments by the developer and U.S. presidential candidate insulting Mexicans, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Wednesday.
“Trump’s comments do not represent the values of inclusion and openness that define us as New Yorkers,” the mayor said in a statement.
All-GOP Texas Supreme Court — voting from home — rules fear of coronavirus no excuse to vote by mail
The Texas Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that a lack of immunity to the new coronavirus does not qualify a voter to apply for a mail-in ballot.
In the latest twist in the legal fight over voting by mail during the coronavirus pandemic, the court agreed with Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton that the risk of contracting the virus alone does not meet the state's qualifications for voting by mail.
"We agree with the State that a voter's lack of immunity to COVID-19, without more, is not a 'disability' as defined by the Election Code," the court wrote.
Texas voters can qualify for mail-in ballots only if they are 65 years or older, have a disability or illness, will be out of the county during the election period, or are confined in jail. The Texas election code defines disability as a "sickness or physical condition" that prevents a voter from appearing in person without the risk of "injuring the voter's health."

DOJ spokesperson tells Fox News Bill Barr is opening investigation into unmasking by Obama administration during 2016 election
Dept. of Justice Spokesperson Kerri Kupec says Bill Barr has authorized the opening of an investigation into "unmasking" that took place before, during, and after the 2016 presidential election by the Obama administration. It is the latest move by the Attorney General to further politicize the DOJ in an effort to re-write history as President Donald Trump would like it told.
Barr has tasked John Dash, a U.S. Attorney in Texas, with conducting the investigation.
Kupac made the announcement on Fox News Wednesday night, telling host and frequent Trump advisor Sean Hannity that Barr has concerns about the "frequency" and the "motivation" of unmasking requests.
