Trump is having a wild ass August.

  • In other wild Trump news, the president canceled a trip to Denmark after the Danish government responded with confusion toward his interest in buying Greenland from the Danes. Yeah, I don’t know, guys. [New York Times]
  • Also, Trump is talking about birthright citizenship again. [Reuters]
  • Also, Trump apparently wants background checks for gun purchases... again. [Politico]
  • Bernie Sanders announced a plan to overhaul America’s labor laws. [Bloomberg]
  • Everything is on fire. [USA Today]
  • North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper vetoed a bill that would require law enforcement to work closely with ICE and DHS. [CNN]
  • Future Not President Bill de Blasio is very upset about a Brooklyn pizza place—which is definitely not the best in New York City—getting shut down for not paying their taxes.
