In other news, Trump is telling his supporters to boycott Goodyear tires because they don't allow red MAGA hats on the job. Actually, they don't allow any political campaign clothing. Goodyear is an Ohio-based company with over 60,000 employees.

Meanwhile, school systems in 71 out of Mississippi's 82 counties have reported coronavirus outbreaks or cases. Nobody (everybody) could have predicted!

Finally, the Trump regime has notified the government of Hong Kong that the U.S. is pulling out of more bilateral agreements.

The ending of the agreements follows U.S. President Donald Trump’s order last month to end Hong Kong’s special status under U.S. law to punish China for what he called “oppressive actions” against the former British colony.

The State Department said in a statement the agreements ended covered “the surrender of fugitive offenders, the transfer of sentenced persons, and reciprocal tax exemptions on income derived from the international operation of ships.”

“These steps underscore our deep concern regarding Beijing’s decision to impose the National Security Law, which has crushed the freedoms of the people of Hong Kong,” State Department Spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said.

It may be fair that we're doing this, but at the same time I feel like we're actively pushing Hong Kong closer to China now.

The Obama or Biden administration would probably abide by our agreements to the greatest extent possible just to demonstrate that we're different from China.
