Good Morning, US live blog readers, there’s a busy day ahead in coronavirus and politics news, so please stay tuned for all the developments in the US.
Here’s where things are this hour:
- Donald Trump has not yet spoken out about the US reaching yesterday the grim milestone of 100,000 Covid-19 deaths across the nation. And in many states the incidence of new cases is still rising, especially in the south and midwest.
- Washington DC, plans to begin tentative reopening for business tomorrow, although the mayor of America’s capital has warned there will likely be more cases of coronavirus.
- We are awaiting a possible executive order from the president today that attempts an aggressive regulatory move against social media platforms, after Trump erupted in outrage when Twitter included some fact-checks, for the first time, in two of his tweets related to voting, earlier this week.
- White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany will hold a briefing at 2pm ET.
