Joe Biden's announcement of a running mate is expected to come any day now, but President Trump thinks his rival already has made a mistake. "I would be inclined to go a different route than what he's done," Trump told sports radio host Clay Travis on Tuesday, per USA Today. "First of all he roped himself into a certain group of people." The president is referring to Biden's decision to consider only female candidates. "Some people would say that men are insulted by that," said Trump. "And some people would say it's fine. I don't know." He added that the VP pick ultimately won't matter because "people don't vote for the vice president," they vote for who is leading the ticket, reports the Federalist.

  • The NFL: “If they don’t stand for the national anthem, I hope they don’t open. They can protest in other ways. They shouldn’t protest our flag or our country.”
  • The NBA: “The way they cater to China, the way they bow to China, it’s a disgrace frankly."
  • College football: They should play, he said, reiterating a point he made Monday. The coronavirus "attacks older people very viciously, by the way. But these football players are very young, strong people physically. They’re not going to have a problem. Could it happen? I doubt it."
