It’s the first day of Republicans’ national convention, and they have already officially nominated President Trump to be their party’s nominee for 2020. Other than that, Trump isn’t having the best few days. Let’s count down the most recent troubling events for him.
4. A notable number of top Republicans won’t appear at the four-night convention this week, like the only living former Republican president (George W. Bush), many Senate Republicans who will be on the ballot with Trump and some senators who might be considering a 2024 run. It suggests the party is seriously considering what life might be like without Trump if he loses in November. Some are calculating that Trumpism won’t be a major part of it.
3. One of his top advisers, who has been with him since his 2016 campaign, is leaving the White House. Kellyanne Conway cited a need to focus on her family, which certainly many American families with school-age children understand. But to leave just months before Trump is up for reelection again?
2. Remember that Trump’s niece recently published a book about the president and how dysfunctional she thinks the Trump family is? Well, turns out she got some of her info about his childhood from conversations with the president’s sister, conversations she secretly recorded — and then shared it with The Washington Post. Trump’s sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, is a retired federal judge who doesn’t speak much about him publicly, yet she privately told her niece Mary Trump that you can’t trust the president and that “Donald is cruel.” Also that she really doesn’t like his tweets.
1. Trump’s business could be in legal trouble. The New York attorney general’s office confirmed Monday that it’s investigating whether the Trump Organization inflated the worth of some of its properties to get other loans. Prosecutors also want to interview one of the president’s sons, Eric. A prosecutor in New York City is trying to get Trump’s tax returns, potentially to look into the Trump Organization as well, and got a step closer last week. These both appear to be serious legal investigations with no indication they’ll be over or stop if the president loses his reelection bid.

The Virtual Democratic Convention is now history. The Atlantic's David Frum reflected upon what the Democrats achieved.
Julia-Luis Dreyfus hosted the final night with some very interesting broadsides at President Trump and Vice President Pence. What we found especially interesting was a Virtual Round-table hosted by Senator Corey Booker with some of the candidates who ran: Senator Bernie Sanders, Beto O Rouke, Amy Kloubacher, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttiteg. Mike Bloomberg also had a prime slot as he laid out a case against Donald Trump. His children Hunter Biden and Ashley Biden introduced him--and gave their late brother Beau Biden the closing word as Vice President Biden was introduced.
We present a snapshot of the dialogue over Social Media along with images of the Virtual Democratic Convention :
