Pitch to women voters is let’s get back to normal

CLOSE

President Donald Trump told Fox Business that he won’t “waste my time” on a virtual presidential debate.

USA TODAY

WASHINGTON – The coronavirus pandemic, recession and nationwide racial tensions may have reshaped the 2020 presidential election, but President Donald Trump’s biggest challenge remains the same: winning over women voters who’ve deserted him.

With just four weeks until Election Day, a series of national polls have shown cratering support for Trump among women, setting up the 2020 election to see a gender gap of historic proportions.

As the president’s campaign makes its closing arguments, Lara Trump, a top campaign aide, insists the message for female voters hasn’t changed much since the coronavirus crisis unfolded. The strategy, she said, is to emphasize policy issues, specifically the economy.

“The message for most people, I think, is that they want to get back to normal. People want to know that they can send

Malta lets Prince George keep shark tooth gift from David Attenborough

Veteran environmental broadcaster Attenborough found the fossil during a family vacation to Malta in the late 1960s, Kensington Palace said, and gave it to George last week.

The tooth, which once belonged to a megalodon, is believed to be about 23 million years old.

The gift raised questions in the Mediterranean nation, prompting Maltese Culture Minister Jose Herrera to say that the tooth should be in a local museum and promising to “set the ball rolling” on getting it back.

But the government poured cold water on the plan Tuesday.

A ministry spokesperson told CNN: “Further to the initial remarks as reported in the Maltese media, Minister Herrera would like to reiterate that no action was initiated or will be taken on the issue.”

Neither the Royal Family nor representatives for Attenborough commented to CNN on the controversy.

Playoffs are set, let’s go shopping!

The Major League Baseball playoff roulette wheel starts on Tuesday, so you’ve still got a little time to find a team that’s worth betting in the futures market. 

I have a live bullet on the Chicago White Sox to win the World Series at 60-to-1 from last November. That was an incredible bet at the time as it came just days before the Sox signed Yasmani Grandal to jump start their offseason. They eventually added Dallas Keuchel, Edwin Encarnacion and Nomar Mazara while also giving a massive contract extension to Luis Robert. 

The Sox dipped to around 40-to-1 by Opening Day and PointsBet Sportsbook is now dealing the South Siders at 15-to-1 to win the title. The relative value is all but gone on the Sox at this very moment, considering their skipper has proven over the last two weeks that he cannot manage a baseball game.
