The Presidential Daily Brief


  1. Religious Freedom, an Exaggerated Report of Death and a ‘Royal Insult’

    Know This: President Trump’s expected to back an order allowing religious groups to be more involved in U.S. politics. After a British paper briefly reported the death of Prince Philip, Buckingham Palace assured the public that there’s no cause for alarm — though he’ll be retiring from public engagements later this year. And Beijing’s been inundated with a massive dust storm that’s led authorities to advise residents to remain indoors.

    Remember This Number: 150 years. That’s the potential jail sentence that prominent Thai human rights lawyer Prawet Prapanukul faces if he’s convicted of the 10 charges of insulting the royal family that have been bought against him.
