    Pres. Trump says he’s an “ally of all peaceful protestors”

    Pres. Trump says he’s an “ally of all peaceful protesters” as police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at peaceful protestors so he could have a photo-op at a church across the street from the White House. He also vowed to deploy the U.S. military if states can’t control the protests.  Michigan Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer tells Anderson Cooper she was “shocked” when she heard the President threaten to deploy troops and that “we need a leader who can bring calm, who can bring unity, who can show compassion and competence that we need.” Plus, NBA legend and business leader Magic Johnson  joins AC360 to react to the protests going on throughout the country.

Then, Montgomery, Alabama Mayor Steven Reed tells Anderson Cooper that his city still has a “ways to go to beat this virus” and that “we have to get people to understand that, or we're going to have a second wave that's going to cost us much more than it already has.” Plus, Tomas Pueyo who has written extensively on the pandemic weighs in.

    Pres. Trump says CDC director doing a “very good job”

    Despite CNN’s reporting that Dr. Redfield, the CDC director, is on the hot seat, Trump says he’s doing a “very good job.” Kathleen Sebelius, former Secretary of Health and Human Services, tells Anderson Cooper it’s a terrible time for tension with the CDC, who are “gold standard epidemiologists.” Plus, as many fans are desperate for sports to return, Charles Barkley, former NBA player and Turner Sports analyst, is hosting “The Match” to raise money for COVID-19 relief. It’s a golf tournament featuring some of the most well-known athletes in the world: Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning vs. Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady. He joins AC360 to preview the event.
