President Donald Trump’s son Eric appeared on Fox News Saturday night, where he gave an interview to host Jeanine Pirro.
Pirro asked the president’s son whether it was possible that his father’s charged rhetoric inspired the MAGAbomber who lived in a van plastered with Trump’s face or the synagogue shooter who believed far-right conspiracy theories about Jews.
“Is this a sign of the rhetoric, and the outrage people are hearing?” Pirro asked. “Is there any correlation between the two?”
“I don’t know. Listen—there might be, there might not be,” Eric Trump said.
Trump then said the shooter was a “very, very sick, deranged person” and “subhuman.”
Trump said that “it seems like we’ve gotten to a point where everything has to be politicized.”
The politically motivated terror attacks should not be politicized, Trump said.
“I think we should try to pull politics out of these things,” Trump said. “He doesn’t represent the left, he doesn’t represent the right.”
Trump may come to regret his big celebration of a small dip in unemployment
Though the unemployment rate remains in the double-digits, the official unemployment numbers are slightly lower than economists expected, prompting self-congratulations by President Donald Trump.
This article first appeared in Salon.
But experts say celebration is premature.
Indeed, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the unemployment rate fell from 14.7 percent in April to 13.3 percent in May as the economy added 2.5 million jobs. The high April number was the worst that the American workforce had seen since monthly record-keeping began in 1948, and almost certainly the worst since the Great Depression. White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett predicted last month that unemployment would rise above 20 percent, a view that was widely shared by economists.

It’s Donald Trump vs Joe Biden: Associate Press reports former VP has clinched the DNC nomination
The 2020 general election campaign between two top parties has unofficially been set.
"Joe Biden formally clinched the Democratic presidential nomination Friday, setting him up for a bruising challenge to President Donald Trump that will play out against the unprecedented backdrop of a pandemic, economic collapse and civil unrest," the AP reported Friday. "The former vice president has effectively been his party’s leader since his last challenger in the Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders, ended his campaign in April. But Biden pulled together the 1,991 delegates needed to become the nominee after seven states and the District of Columbia held presidential primaries Tuesday."
