6:05 am
consideration we do have to look at the code in crisis in particular and how president trumps approval ratings on combe that are actually very low but one of the things that trump is actually hoping we're going to spain for is that specially in wisconsin if we look at public opinion polling support for black labs matter appears to be waning and so what he thinks is that there may be some protests and he can tap into that protest the tea and that's mobilize his base of voters to turn out in record numbers to support him and to reelect him. the police in los angeles of shoals and killed a black cyclist 29 year old usual was scholtz more than 20 times in the back as he tried to get away from all for says the family attorney says he was stopped for a bicycle code violation the sheriff's department says officers opened fire after a handgun fell from his bag. now the u.s. department of defense says china is planning to double its stockpile of more than $200.00 nuclear weapons in the next decade in its annual china military power
