2020 Democratic candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar outlined her priorities for the first 100 days of her potential presidency in a Medium post Tuesday.

The big picture: The Minnesota senator outlined a huge list of steps to enact her vision for America, encompassing a range of topics from climate change to manufacturing to foreign aid. The document, which is short on plans to execute her vision, differs from some of her 2020 opponents, who have tried to stand out from the pack by publishing lengthy single-issue proposals targeting hot-button issues.

Her "day one" priorities include keeping the U.S. in the Paris climate change agreement, which President Trump signaled his intention to withdraw from last year, and nominating "well-qualified" judges to fill vacancies.

Other priorities included in her post:

  • Suspending the Trump administration's efforts to dismantle protections for pre-existing conditions and introducing legislation geared towards universal health care.
  • Beginning legislative negotiations for immigration reform and protecting DACA and TPS recipients.
  • Introducing gun control legislation to enact universal background checks, close gun show loopholes, and ban assault weapons, bump stocks and high-capacity magazines.
  • Introducing legislation that "builds on the framework of the Green New Deal."
  • Ending family separation at the border.
  • Addressing LGBTQ anti-discrimination policies and reversing the ban on transgender troops in the military.

Newly released transcripts of bodycam footage from the Minneapolis Police Department show that George Floyd told officers he could not breathe more than 20 times in the moments leading up to his death.

Why it matters: Floyd's killing sparked a national wave of Black Lives Matter protests and an ongoing reckoning over systemic racism in the United States. The transcripts "offer one the most thorough and dramatic accounts" before Floyd's death, The New York Times writes.

Fighting the coronavirus infodemic

An "infodemic" of misinformation and disinformation has helped cripple the response to the novel coronavirus.

Why it matters: High-powered social media accelerates the spread of lies and political polarization that motivates people to believe them. Unless the public health sphere can effectively counter misinformation, not even an effective vaccine may be enough to end the pandemic.
