Republican Rep. Mia Love of Utah on Sunday accused President Donald Trump of making “racist” remarks about Haiti and African Countries.
In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Love sidestepped the fact that Republican lawmakers had yet to forcefully condemn Trump for reportedly saying that African countries were a “shithole” and immigrants from Haiti did not deserve to stay in the United States.
“Were the comments racist, do you think?” Tapper asked Love.
“Um, well,” Love stuttered. “I think they were — yes. I think that they were unfortunate. I don’t know if they were taken — I wasn’t in the room when the comments were made. I don’t know which context they were made. I’m looking forward to finding out what happened.”

A Louisville-area doctor could face charges for singling out and physically attacking a young black woman in a dispute over social distancing.

“We are leaving," one of the younger women tells the doctor. "Please let’s not cuss at each other.”

New York firefighter gets emotional talking about EMTs who feel guilty they’re too sick to work
The New York Fire Department is struggling to make its way through the coronavirus crisis. Currently, 493 members of the NYFD have tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 3,000 are out sick.
Anthony Almojera, an EMS Lieutenant-paramedic for the FDNY told CNN Tuesday that he doesn't know how they're managing the constant influx of calls for help from New Yorkers.
"It's truly a testament to the EMS workers that we have here, the EMTs and medics," he told host Jim Sciutto. "It's pretty amazing to see how they're going out in spite of seeing all their co-workers get sick. It's frightening for a lot of us. We don't want to bring it home. We don't want to get sick with it but, you know, this is our job, we treat the sick and injured. We still have all of our regular 9-1-1 calls. It's truly a testament to the EMTs."
