01) Another Stimulus Check and Unemployment Extension Coming?


“Will you be getting another stimulus check?

Another batch of one-time stimulus checks could be coming. But this time, far fewer Americans could get paid.

President Donald Trump has made it clear that he wants to include another batch of checks in the next coronavirus legislation.

But Senate Republicans have been slow to warm to the idea. One reason: the high cost of cutting millions of checks to Americans.

Now, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is considering a compromise: disbursing funds to people making $40,000 or less a year.

01) Trump: I NEVER Get Any Credit!


“Trump advisers leaking to press about his whining.

With the pandemic ongoing and his poll numbers continuing to tank, President Donald Trump has reportedly been down in the dumps. And so the president’s closest advisers have sought to cheer him up in recent weeks.

By bringing him some trucks to play with.

On April 16, a fleet of 18-wheelers rolled into the White House for an event celebrating America’s Truckers. According to the Washington Post, that event was the brainchild of Trump advisers including Hope Hicks and Dan Scavino — who thought the best way to lift the president’s spirits was to bring him some toys.

01) Do Black Lives Really Matter to Business?


“Companies large and small are proclaiming Black Lives Matter as widespread demonstrations sweep the country to demand an end to police violence and investment in Black life. But is real change on the way, or is this just empty rhetoric? For years, businesses have been promising to diversify, even spending billions of dollars on diversity programs, yet they remain overwhelmingly and disproportionately white. Pamela Newkirk, author of Diversity Inc.: The Failed Promise of a Billion-Dollar Business, points out that the diversity industry has flourished while diversity has not. She talks to Laura about the consequences and how these billions could be reinvested to much better effect in education and tech training programs in communities of color.”

01) Trump FLIPS After Losing Fight To Hide His Taxes


“Trump is losing the battle on his taxes.

The Supreme Court in a split decision on Thursday sided with New York state prosecutors seeking President Trump’s tax returns, even as it shielded a trove of his financial records from Congress.

The justices upheld a Manhattan district attorney subpoena for eight years of Trump’s financial documents, including his personal and corporate tax returns. But they declined to grant Congress access to records subpoenaed by a trio of Democratic-led House committees.

Both cases were decided by a 7-2 vote.
