The Presidential Daily Brief


  1. Crucial Votes, Ill-Planned Tweets and the New Rise of Measles

    Know This: The White House and GOP leaders are scrambling to convince conservative lawmakers to support their Obamacare replacement before an up-or-down vote today. A 28-year-old Army veteran who told police he hates Black men has been arrested for stabbing a homeless man with a sword. And Donald Trump Jr. is under fire for a tweet mocking London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the wake of the Westminster terror attack.

    Remember This Number: 700. That’s how many measles cases have been reported in Italy so far in 2017. The same period last year saw only 220 — and the massive leap is being blamed on the rise of the Five Star Party, a populist movement that campaigned partly on an anti-vaccination platform.
