    The White House has cancelled Donald Trump’s planned weekend at his Bedminster golf resort amid New Jersey’s request that travelers who have visited states with coronavirus spikes self-quarantine for 14 days.
    Mr Trump has recently visited Arizona, which has seen a surge in cases and hospitalisations, and a county in Wisconsin on Thursday that its state government says has a “high” Covid-19 activity level.
    White House officials have declined to disclose the reason for why the trip was cancelled just a few hours before the president was scheduled to leave the White House on Marine One. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-bedminster-new-jersey-coronavirus-quarantine-golf-club-white-house-a9588161.html

      Trump says he canceled weekend trip to Bedminster amid protests ‘to make sure law & order is enforced’ (Fox News) https://www.foxnews.com/politics/trump-cancels-weekend-trip-to-bedminster
      Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump 3:15 PM Jun 26, 2020: “I was going to go to Bedminster, New Jersey, this weekend, but wanted to stay in Washington, D.C. to make sure LAW & ORDER is enforced. The arsonists, anarchists, looters, and agitators have been largely stopped…” [continues] “…I am doing what is necessary to keep our communities safe — and these people will be brought to Justice!”
      President Donald Trump also said on Twitter Friday that he has signed an executive order on protecting monuments, an action the President had been teasing for the past week.
      “I just had the privilege of signing a very strong Executive Order protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues – and combating recent Criminal Violence,” the President wrote Friday. “Long prison terms for these lawless acts against our Great Country!”
      The text of the act has not been released. It’s not clear how the order differs from the existing Veterans’ Memorial Preservation Act, under which the President claimed earlier this week that he had “authorized the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the U.S. with up to 10 years in prison.”
      CNN has reported some Trump allies had been pushing the White House to take a stance — any stance — on the racial issues fracturing the country.” https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/26/politics/trump-signs-monuments-executive-order/index.html
      Meanwhile, “America’s single worst day of new coronavirus cases obliterated President Donald Trump’s fantasyland vision of a post-Covid America — even as he sowed new diversions in an effort to hide the reality of his leadership void in a deepening national crisis.” https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/26/politics/donald-trump-coronavirus-single-worst-day-new-cases/index.html See also “A Devastating New Stage of the Pandemic : The U.S. has seen more cases in the past week than in any week since the pandemic began. https://amp.theatlantic.com/amp/article/613522/
