But this weekends convergence of Trumps most loyal supporters and national media also laid bare the utter strangeness of the moment, a time when a global pandemic is coinciding with both a presidential race and a historic civil rights movement.

By Fredreka Schouten President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the Democrat hoping to unseat him, are raking in millions for their campaigns at high-dollar events but have not fully disclosed details about the elite fundraisers who collect cash on their behalf, campaign-finance watchdogs say.

Hare and the Hound – The Statesman

Trump and Biden are raking in millions in recent weeks with the help of elite fundraisers – 9News

President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the Democrat hoping to unseat him, are raking in millions for their campaigns at high-dollar events but have not fully disclosed details about the elite fundraisers who collect cash on their behalf, campaign-finance watchdogs say. With the exception of federal lobbyists who serve as campaign bundlers, federal law does not require presidential candidates to release their full lists of the political fundraisers who help "bundle" together donations from friends, relatives and business associates to underwrite costly White House campaigns. Obama, for instance, publicly updated his list of fundraisers quarterly and divided them into broad tiers, ranging from those who had collected more than $720,000 (US$500,000) apiece to those who collected between $72,000 (US$50,000) and $145,000 (US$100,000) each.

US Hegemony In The Middle East: Before And Under Trump Era – Analysis – Eurasia Review

Hegemon Hegemony is an idea that argues for the indispensable role of a hegemon to sustain an international liberal order (ILO), and the most standard way of locating this role is within the context of the Hegemonic Stability Theory (HST). The HST refers to a cluster of approaches interested in the role of dominant power in global politics.
