  Biden assembles legal team ahead of divisive 2020 election WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrat Joe Biden is assembling a team of top lawyers in anticipation of court challenges to the election process that could ultimately determine who wins the race for the White House. Biden's presidential campaign says the legal war room will work to ensure that elections are properly administered and votes correctly counted. It will also seek to combat voter suppression at the polls, identify foreign interference and misinformation, and educate voters on the different methods available for casting ballots. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

"It'll start getting cooler . You just watch," Trump said after Wade Crowfoot, California's secretary for Trump in the past has repeatedly called climate change a "hoax." But Crowfoot stressed in his "We've had temperatures explode this summer. You may have learned that we broke a world record

President Trump suggested the world would “start getting cooler” Monday, dismissing pleas from California officials that he work with them on climate change.

“It will start getting cooler. You just watch,” Trump told California Secretary of Natural Resources Wade Crowfoot during a briefing on the dozens of major wildfires engulfing the state and much of the West.

“I wish the science agreed with you,” Crowfoot countered. Trump, in response, said, “Well, I don’t think the science knows actually.”

Why should Americans care about refugee resettlement?

  Why should Americans care about refugee resettlement? We are calling for a return to U.S. leadership on this issue.The president has already reduced refugee admissions to the lowest levels since the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program began in 1980. Between then and the start of the Trump administration, U.S. presidents had, on average, authorized resettlement ceilings of about 96,000 refugees per year, with actual resettlement numbers averaging about 81,000 annually. For 2018, the first full fiscal year of the Trump administration, the president authorized the admission of only 45,000 refugees. At the time, this was the lowest ceiling in the history of the U.S.

Trump insists 'it'll start getting cooler .' Should the Democratic nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden , defeat Trump this November, he'll need to execute a similarly peaceful transition of power, Chait writes, and will likely "be tempted to offer a pardon" to Trump " as a gesture of magnanimity." Temperatures are spiking all over the world , leading glaciers to melt and contribute to sea level rise

Critics have pointed to Biden ’s gaffe-prone nature as a candidate for the reason he will likely skip a debate with Trump , but the former “I’m looking forward to getting on the debate stage with Trump and holding him accountable. I think I know how to handle bullies – we’ll find out,” Biden said at a

Crowfoot had been asking Trump to look beyond just working with California to better manage its forests. The federal government should support climate change science and work with state officials to protect forests from its worst effects, including extreme heat and risk of wildfires, he said.

“That science is going to be key,” Crowfoot said. “If we ignore that science and sort of put our head in the sand and think it’s all about vegetation management, we’re not going to succeed together protecting California.”

Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, too, pressed Trump on climate change, though his remarks weren’t quite as pointed as Crowfoot’s.

“We obviously feel very strongly that the hots are getting hotter and the drys are getting drier,” Newsom told Trump. He added “climate change is real” and “exacerbating” the wildfires.

In move criticised by local politicians, Trump will visit California as death toll hits 35. On the prospect of some kind of coronavirus relief bill still getting passed, he said there still could be a deal. Joe Biden planned to address the fires and the climate crisis during a speech in Wilmington, Delaware.

While he said there’s an area of “commonality” on better managing vegetation and forests in California, Newsom asked Trump to “please respect the difference of opinion out here on this fundamental issue” of climate change.

Trump, with his response, perhaps unwittingly underscored his Democratic rival Joe Biden’s main campaign message Monday. Biden, during remarks at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, slammed Trump as a “climate denier” and a “climate arsonist,” delivering some of the most direct remarks of his campaign on the effects of climate change and the costs of inaction.

“If we have four more years of Trump’s climate denial, how many suburbs will be burned in wildfires?” Biden said during remarks Monday at the Delaware Museum of Natural History. “How many suburbs will have flooded out? How many suburbs will have been blown away in superstorms?”

If Trump gets a second term, “these hellish events will continue to become more common, more devastating, and more deadly,” Biden said of the Western wildfires, as well as droughts and flooding in the Midwest and the Atlantic’s extremely active hurricane season.

California’s climate and energy policies have increasingly become a flashpoint in the presidential race. Trump has used the state’s energy woes and recent rolling blackouts to argue California is too prescriptive in its energy policy, shutting out fossil fuel power at the expense of keeping the lights on.

Trump has linked California’s policies to Biden’s climate plans, which would seek to eliminate carbon emissions from the power sector even quicker than California does.

Biden, however, is ramping up his messaging on the damages caused by climate change and the toll that has and could take on the U.S. economy. His aggressive climate change plans meet the moment, he argues.

“Some say that we can’t afford to fix this. But here’s the thing: Look around at the crushing consequences of the extreme weather events I’ve been describing,” Biden said at the Delaware museum. “We’ve already been paying for it.”
