Welcome to Majority.FM's AM QUICKIE! Brought to you by justcoffee.coop

TODAY'S HEADLINES:

Trump blows the White Nationalist bullhorn from the Oval Office, calling Jews who vote for Democrats either stupid or disloyal.

The NRA has already managed to get Trump to back off his recent calls for expanded background checks.

The Border Patrol says they will not provide flu vaccines to migrant children in border camps even though the infection has killed at least three children in custody this year. 

And our QUICKER QUICKIES HEADLINES:

Politico reports that the FDIC board voted 3-1 Tuesday to give big banks more leeway to make risky short-term bets in financial markets by loosening a landmark but highly contentious regulation known as the Volcker rule.

A new CNN poll finds 65% of Americans say current economic conditions are good, but that’s down since May, representing the first significant decline in public perception of the economy during Donald Trump’s presidency.

The AP reports that Democrats plan to spend at least $1.2 million on ads in Maine to defeat Susan Collins, including a TV spot that accuses Collins of failing to protect Medicare.

And from the Chicago Tribune, Pete Buttigieg held a self-described grassroots campaign rally on Chicago’s Southside on Tuesday night, but the overwhelmingly white audience he drew to the event in a historic black neighborhood reinforced the difficulty the Democratic presidential hopeful has had in connecting with African American voters.
