  1. Today
  2. Secret Service under the microscope A shoe remained on the campaign rally stage after yesterday's assassination attempt. Photo: Jabin Botsford/The Washington Post via Getty Images Multiple Republican-led House committees are launching investigations into federal law enforcement's handling of yesterday's shooting, Axios' Juliegrace Brufke, Stef Kight and Andrew Solender report. FBI Director Christopher Wray said law enforcement "will leave no stone unturned" in its investigation, AP reports. What we're hearing: Lawmakers are still scrambling for detailed information on precisely what happened during and around the shooting. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) was briefed yesterday, his office told Axios. A bipartisan pair of House members said today they plan to introduce a bill to enhance Secret Service protections for Biden, Trump and independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Map: Erin Davis/Axios Visuals Between the lines: The Secret Service has already begun pushing back on some allegations that Trump was left inadequately protected. Agency spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi took to X to deny claims that "a member of the former President's team requested additional security resources and that those were rebuffed," which he called "absolutely false." "In fact, we added protective resources & technology & capabilities as part of the increased campaign travel tempo," he added.
  3. Biden Oval Office address Tonight's Oval Office address, the third of his presidency, gives President Biden the opportunity to be the consoler-in-chief. Why it matters: Biden is likely to use his address to call for unity and ask Americans to lower the partisan temperature in the country, as he did in earlier remarks today in the Roosevelt Room. Biden said he and Trump had a "short but good" conversation last night. "I am sincerely grateful he is doing well," Biden said. Between the lines: The Oval Office address also allows Biden to focus the nation's attention on something other than his disastrous debate performance, which has led many of his fellow Democrats to call for him to step down. The president and his top advisers have been looking for moments to help Biden rehabilitate his image and demonstrate in words and deeds that he's up to running the country — and running for president.
  4. Defiance in Milwaukee A police officer Sunday at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, the site of this week's Republican National Convention. Photo: Hannah Beier/Bloomberg via Getty Images MILWAUKEE — On the ground at the RNC, Republicans say their mood is defiant after yesterday's assassination attempt. Why it matters: Add the anticipation over Trump's first public speech since being shot —plus the unveiling of his VP pick — and you have a high-drama, high-unity convention. Trump's toughest primary opponent Nikki Haley pivoted overnight from not attending the RNC to being an invited speaker. Trump will be flying in today, he announced on Truth Social. The former president promised to be "defiant in the face of wickedness." Zoom in: Trump co-campaign manager Susie Wiles and Trump campaign senior adviser Chris LaCivita told campaign staff to avoid their offices in D.C. and West Palm Beach, Fla., as they undergo security assessments, Axios' Sophia Cai, Stef Kight and Ivana Saric report. "The RNC convention will continue as planned in Milwaukee." The bottom line: "The arena's set," RNC chair Michael Whatley said on "Fox News Sunday." "The security is here, and we feel very comfortable that we're working with the Secret Service, we're working with 40 different law enforcement agencies in terms of what that security is going to look like."
  5. America plays with fire Illustration: Aïda Amer/Axios The assassination attempt on former President Trump was shocking — but not surprising, Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen write in a Behind the Curtain column. Why it matters: Everything in America has turned political. Everything political turned visceral. And everything visceral turned into the possibility of unspeakable violence like this. Everyone sees it, feels it, predicts it. Some actively agitate for it on social media and TV. Now, we have it. Again. And again. And again. Intelligence officials privately warn of more to come. We've watched it build from a lunatic shooting a member of Congress in the head, to the bullets sprayed at members of Congress playing ball, to the brutality and violence on Jan. 6, to a crazed man pounding to near-death the husband of Nancy Pelosi. And now a bullet was just inches from killing Trump. The reaction by so many, so fast shows why lowering the temperature seems so implausible. Within moments, prominent Republicans blamed President Biden, the Secret Service, the media. Prominent Democrats blamed Trump's own violent rhetoric for an attempt on his own life. Reversing this trend toward verbal and actual violence requires clear-eyed views of some of its root causes: Everything is politics. Politics has seeped into, well, everything: where we worship, what we drive, where we live, where we shop, and what we drink, the books we read, the words we ban. The result: this puts more people in more settings on edge. Everyone gets sucked into it. Politics use to be mostly boring and largely confined to political professionals and enthusiasts. Now, everyone gets sucked in: CEOs (Elon Musk), investors (David Sacks and Reid Hoffman), actors (George Clooney), sports stars (Aaron Rodgers). Social media's bombast bias. The loudest, most provocative, most bellicose voices echo loudest on most social media platforms. It's the quickest way to fans, followers and fame. It seduces people to say and write things they might muffle or calibrate in person or with more words. Read X in moments since the shooting — it's often horrifying and gross. Visceral vs. academic. Politics are no longer fought on the academic terms of the 1990s and 2000s: higher taxes vs. lower taxes, lighter vs. heavier regulation, more military spending vs. less. Now it's about our identity: our patriotism, our values, our feelings and emotions. So attacks feel personal, not policy-centric. Existential. Both sides frame this election as not one fight for one four-year term, but a battle for America and humanity. People don't threaten civil wars over COLA adjustments for Social Security recipients. They do to save the nation and our species. The end result: More violence. For the past year, top government officials have been telling us domestic violence is a clear and present danger to America, especially after the election. They see this in social media chatter, phone threats to members of Congress and candidates, and Homeland Security data. And now in the near-murder of a presidential candidate.

  10. U.S. Politics: today often includes discussion related to our borders and immigration.

Sometimes we can learn from our history. One suggestion I will suggest is that better legislation springs from proposals that unite people.

  21. 1 big thing: America, campaign transformed America is reeling. The attempted assassination of Donald Trump, 115 days before Election Day, has ushered in a dark new chapter of political violence — and redefined a campaign already packed with historic firsts, Axios' Zachary Basu writes. Why it matters: On the eve of a Republican National Convention built on themes of victimhood and political persecution, Trump came inches — literally — from martyrdom. Republicans couldn't ask for more of a contrast, with President Biden spending the last two weeks in a standoff with Democrats who fear he's too feeble to campaign effectively. Trump, who said on Truth Social that he felt the bullet "ripping through" his skin, will be welcomed in Milwaukee tomorrow as a hero, a fighter — even, to elements of his evangelical base, a messiah. The images from the shooting, plastered on front pages around the world this morning, became iconic in real time. With blood dripping from his right ear, Trump was captured by photographers pumping a defiant fist to shell-shocked supporters as he was swarmed by Secret Service agents. "Fight...fight...fight!" the indignant former president appeared to shout as he was shuttled away from the crime scene, where two people, including the shooter, were left dead. Trump's first dispatch after the shooting, at 8:42 p.m. ET. Via Truth Social 🖼️ The big picture: Despite swift condemnation by Biden and other top Democrats, the assassination attempt will turbocharge the persecution narrative Trump has placed at the center of his campaign. "In the end, they're not coming after me. They're coming after you — and I'm just standing in their way," Trump told supporters after his first federal indictment last summer. The quote is the main headline on his campaign homepage and is plastered on a wall of Milwaukee's Fiserv Forum, the GOP convention's main hall. Trump's campaign already has cast this election as existential. The assassination attempt undoubtedly will lead to a surge in donations — especially with the massive spotlight on the RNC this week. Trump "will be greeted as a kind of martyr of this event, and I think it could be angrier or it could be more somber," former Obama strategist David Axelrod said on CNN. "But it's certainly not going to be the same." The Secret Service tends to Trump onstage. Photo: Anna Moneymaker/Getty Images 🔎 Between the lines: Some Democrats have been quick to point out that Trump has used extreme rhetoric and downplayed political violence for years, including the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the attack on Paul Pelosi, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband. Many Republicans blamed the violence on Biden and his allies, arguing that sustained attacks on Trump as a threat to democracy have created a toxic environment. They pointed to a comment Biden made to donors on July 8: "It's time to put Trump in the bullseye." (AP) Both Trump and Biden will now face pressure to dial down the temperature ahead of an election that has transformed the country into a tinderbox. 🔮 What to watch: The biggest electoral impact could come courtesy of low-information and politically disengaged Americans, who are expected to make up a decisive voting bloc. The attempted assassination was so shocking that it immediately cut through a wide range of cultural and digital bubbles, drawing reactions from influencers, athletes and CEOs. Elon Musk immediately endorsed Trump in a post that racked up more than 125 million views on X. YouTuber Jake Paul, who has legions of young followers, tweeted: "If it isn't apparent enough who God wants to win. When you try and kill God's angels and saviors of the world it just makes them bigger." More photos ...

  23. July 14, 2024 By the staff of The Morning Good morning. We’re covering the latest on the assassination attempt against Donald Trump. Doug Mills/The New York Times Political violence Authorities have identified the gunman who tried to assassinate Donald Trump yesterday but are still racing to understand what the shooter’s motives were and how he was able to get so close to Trump. The F.B.I. named the gunman as Thomas Matthew Crooks, a 20-year-old from Bethel Park, Pa., roughly 40 miles from Butler, the small city in western Pennsylvania where the attack occurred. Crooks was a registered Republican, though records show that he had donated money to a liberal voter turnout group in 2021. Here is the latest on Crooks. The attack killed one spectator at the scene and left two others critically injured, officials said. Trump had blood on his face as he was escorted from the stage but was safe this morning. The assassination attempt added a shocking and violent turn to a presidential campaign that had already been more tumultuous than any in decades. In today’s newsletter, we’ll help you understand what we know this morning. What happened Our colleague Simon Levien was at the rally during the shooting. “Trump had just started to talk about immigration in his stump speech when several shots rang out from the bleachers to his right,” he wrote. “Everyone immediately ducked — myself included.” There were two bursts of fire — first three shots, and then five. Trump put his hand to his ear and then ducked, before Secret Service agents rushed the stage to shield him. As they began to move him offstage, Trump told them to wait and defiantly pumped his fist, with blood on his face, while the crowd chanted, “U.S.A.” (Watch the video here.) “It’s difficult to imagine a moment that more fully epitomizes Mr. Trump’s visceral connection with his supporters, and his mastery of the modern media age,” The Times’s Shawn McCreesh wrote. A photo showing what appears to be a projectile passing by Trump during the rally. Doug Mills/The New York Times Trump said on social media that he had been “shot with a bullet that pierced the upper part of my right ear.” Law enforcement agencies have not given specifics about what they believe happened. The veteran Times photographer Doug Mills was also at the scene. “I could see blood on” Trump’s face, he said. “I kept taking pictures. As tough as he looked in that one picture with his fist looking very defiant, the next frame I took, he looked completely drained. Very, very shocked.” (This photograph by Doug appears to capture the path of the bullet, and Doug describes his experience here.) The suspect fired shots from an elevated position outside the rally, the Secret Service said. Officials also said that they had recovered an AR-15-type rifle near his body. Videos posted to social media and verified by The Times showed the suspected gunman lying motionless on the roof of a building around 400 feet north of the stage. In an interview with the BBC, a man said he saw somebody with a rifle on a rooftop before the shooting and tried to signal to the Secret Service. Reactions Some attendees of the rally, which had been gleeful, began to cry, pray or scream. “The first thing I thought to myself was, America’s under attack,” Corey Check, a local activist, said. “I grabbed the hands of a couple of people I didn’t even know. We said the Lord’s Prayer. I called my family and told them I loved them.” President Biden spoke publicly after the shooting and spoke with Trump later in the night. “Look, there’s no place in America for this kind of violence,” Biden said in a brief televised speech. “It’s sick.” Other politicians, including some touched by violence themselves, also denounced the shooting. “I’m holding former President Trump, and all those affected by today’s indefensible act of violence in my heart,” Gabby Giffords, a former representative who survived an assassination attempt, posted on social media. “Political violence is un-American and is never acceptable — never.” More coverage “It was the first attempted assassination of a current or former American president in the era of social media, and the conspiracy theories, finger-pointing and campaign gamesmanship moved at the speed of the internet, far faster than the actual facts,” The Times’s Jonathan Weisman explained. This Times graphic explains the layout and location of the important sites from yesterday’s shooting. CNN compiled photos of Trump at the rally that show multiple angles of him exiting the stage. The Biden campaign scrambled to pause television ads and campaign communications after the shooting. Follow the latest all day through live Times updates posted here. Commentary The attack on Trump is antithetical to America, The Times’s editorial board writes. “The darkest hours of American history, the ones shadowed by political violence, remind us that incitement and hatred must be constantly challenged,” the Washington Post editorial board writes. “Transparency in the investigation will be critical to avoid the spread of conspiracy theories on the right and left,” The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board writes. “Now is the time for America’s moral center to rise up and declare — with one voice, neither red nor blue — ‘Enough,’” David French of Times Opinion writes. THE LATEST NEWS Israel-Hamas War In southern Gaza.

But it took a harrowing climb of Denali to know theirs was a forever love. THE INTERVIEW Robert Putnam Philip Montgomery for The New York Times By Lulu Garcia-Navarro This week’s subject for The Interview is Robert Putnam, the Harvard political scientist whose groundbreaking book “Bowling Alone” warned that America was transforming into a nation of loners who are going to church less frequently, joining fewer clubs and losing trust in fellow citizens. Putnam is now 83, and in the two decades since “Bowling Alone” he has watched the nation become steadily more lonely and polarized. I asked him: What went wrong? Your passion is so great, and I’m moved by it, frankly. But here we are. Yeah. So, I don’t know. You shouldn’t think I’ve never asked myself that question. One way to put it is this: Twenty-five years ago I essentially predicted everything that was going to happen. That’s a little exaggerated, but not much. And yet they happened. I’ve been a little bit of an Isaiah, preaching how awful things are. One person once said I was like an Old Testament prophet with charts. I’ve been working for most of my adult life to try and build a better, more productive, more equal, more connected community in America, and now I’m 83 and looking back, and it has been a total failure. Should I be optimistic or pessimistic about the future? I don’t know that I’m optimistic or pessimistic. Honestly, looking at the polls today, I could be pretty pessimistic. But I am hopeful because I can see how we could change it, and I’m doing my damnedest, including right this moment, to try to change the course of history. I’m sorry, that’s very self-important and I apologize for that, but I’m telling you honestly how I feel. I don’t mean to sound cynical, it’s just, What can I do? I tried my damnedest to sketch a way forward, but I’ve not been persuasive enough. Well, maybe it’s just that one man can’t do it alone! We need community. [Laughs] You’re right!
