Trump promises post-pandemic economic recovery on Midwest swing:
President Trump flew to Midwest battlegrounds Monday to trumpet the pre-pandemic economy and paint an apocalyptic picture of what would happen if he loses on Election Day, as polls showed a narrowing race with former Vice President Joseph R. Biden ahead of a virtual Democratic National Convention.
Mr. Trump is touting a gradual recovery after the pandemic threw millions out of work, sideswiped college football and put mom-and-pop shops on the brink of collapse, forcing him to promise a vaccine and better days ahead as the death toll surpasses 170,000.
But his choice of venue was the point: Mr. Trump showed his face in swing-state Wisconsin, while Mr. Biden and Democrats courted voters far away from their planned host city of Milwaukee.
“Joe Biden has no enthusiasm, and you don’t win without enthusiasm,” Mr. Trump said in Oshkosh.
In a one-day sprint, the president regaled supporters across three locations in Wisconsin and Minnesota with his greatest economic hits, from restarting iron mines to rewriting trade deals, hoping to remind critical Midwest voters of good times before the pandemic as Democrats kicked off online festivities. --->READ MORE HERE.

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner said he and his wife Ivanka Trump are sending their children back to school and are not concerned about the possibility they could be exposed to the coronavirus.
"Absolutely," Kushner said when asked if was sending his children back to school for "in-person education" on CBS News' "Face the Nation" on Sunday.
Parents across the nation wrestle with two difficult options this fall: send children back to school and risk exposure to COVID-19, or keep them home and risk academic and social setbacks.
But Kushner said he has no doubts given children's lower risk of complications from the virus.
"Based on the data I have seen, I don't believe that that's a risk," Kushner said of the possibility of his kids dying from COVID-19. "Again, this virus impacts different people in different ways. We know a lot more now than we did." --->READ MORE HERE.
