Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will travel to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Monday to make an address "on whether voters feel safe" in President Trump's America and offer his vision for a "better future," his campaign said in a statement.

Of note: The Biden campaign's announcement Sunday comes one day after the New York Times reported that the former vice president would be making a trip to "condemn violence, and to note that chaos has unfolded" on Trump's watch.

Our thought bubble, via Axios' Hans Nichols: Biden's plans to travel and directly address the violence is an indication that the campaign is worried about losing ground on the law and order issue.

The big picture: Biden has stepped up his rhetoric on civil unrest in the U.S. in recent days.

  • On Sunday, he issued a statement unequivocally condemning violence on all sides after a man was fatally shot the previous night during a clash between supporters of Trump and anti-racism protesters.
  • On Saturday, he told the National Guard Association of America in a virtual meeting, "You’ve been called out to help keep the peace as the country continues to struggle and overcome our racial justice crisis."
  • He also took a swipe at President Trump, saying: "I promise you, as president, I'll never put you in the middle of politics or personal vendettas. I’ll never use the military as a prop or as a private militia to violate rights of fellow citizens. That's not law and order. You don’t deserve that."

Biden may start with 'skeleton staff'

President-elect Joe Biden will likely start with a "skeleton staff" in the West Wing to keep him healthy after the Trump administration's cavalier approach to the coronavirus, a White House support staffer familiar with the transition plans told Axios.

Why it matters: The incoming president, at 78, is in a high-risk group and already careful to mask up. President Trump and numerous staffers have flouted safety protocols and caught COVID-19, meaning there will have to be some sort of deep cleaning for the White House residence and offices before the new team moves in.

Trump risk rises for companies

Donald Trump fancies himself a businessman — and has given himself a central role in determining the conduct and even the existence of major companies both domestic and foreign.

Why it matters: America has historically been a great place to operate a company under the rule of law, and not be beholden to political whim. Those days seem to be over — at least for companies in the communications industry.

At least 178 Palestinians have been injured in clashes with Israeli police in Jerusalem, Reuters reported late Friday.

The big picture: The clashes come amid growing anger over the threatened eviction of Palestinians from their homes on land claimed by Jewish settlers in East Jerusalem. Tensions have also escalated in the occupied West Bank in recent weeks.
