TRUMP TOUTS REGULATION ROLLBACKS AS U.S. SURPASSES 150K DEATHS: According to Johns Hopkins, the United States has officially surpassed 150,000 coronavirus deaths. However, Pres. Trump is not likely to discuss the growing pandemic while delivering remarks in Midland, TX as the state is seen as becoming potential swing territory in the upcoming election. Instead Trump is expected to further highlight his recent rollbacks in environmental regulations and promote American energy infrastructure and production. Democrats have accused Trump of trying to shift attention away from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which is surging across Texas with over 410,000 confirmed cases, the fourth highest in the country. Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas was scheduled to travel with Trump on Air Force One to his home state, but plans changed this morning after he announced he had tested positive for COVID-19. Trump was not wearing a mask upon landing in Texas earlier today, as he wore one publicly for just the third time earlier this week in North Carolina.
