COVID-19 Relief Negotiations Start Back Up: “People’s Lives Depend on It”

Trump’s Amy Coney Barrett Pick for Supreme Court Might Backfire, Analysts Say

Trump’s commitment to picking a woman appears political: Trump’s administration has been criticized for being male-dominated, and his support is dwindling with women voters.

But when it comes to winning over voters, analysts agreed the strategy appears at the very least ineffective—and potentially counterproductive.
