Discussing President Trump's push on taxes, Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown told Dana Bash on CNN'S State of the Union Sunday morning that President Trump's White House looks like a "retreat for Goldman Sachs executives."

Worth noting: Trump's plan currently drops the top tax rate from 39.6% to 35%. Trump said in a Fox News interview that aired today that he doesn't want to add another bracket for the super wealthy unless he thinks the middle class isn't getting a good enough deal.

More from Brown
  • "I agree that Steve Bannon is a white supremacist, and Stephen Miller seems to be. And I know that studies have shown that they have their allies sprinkled all around the White House."
  • "I would say it's sad, it's worse than sad, that the President engages in this kind of name calling...and tries to demean people that way, and gets in these fights."
  • "I think the media has not been unfair to Trump. I think Trump has made it a point of attacking the media and calling all of you, Dana, enemies of the people."

Ethiopia's Nobel Peace laureate cracks down on ethnic violence

The image of a Nobel Peace laureate in military fatigues encapsulates the moment in which Ethiopia finds itself — on the verge of a transition to democracy, a descent into violence or, perhaps, a precarious combination of the two.

Driving the news: At least 166 people were killed after an iconic musician, Haacaaluu Hundeessaa, was murdered last Monday in Addis Ababa, the capital. Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed responded to the violence by sending in troops and shutting off the internet. High-profile opposition leaders were arrested, along with some 2,300 others.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms tests positive for coronavirus

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said on Monday that she has tested positive for the coronavirus after displaying no symptoms.

Why it matters: Bottoms, one of several Black women on the shortlist to be Joe Biden's running mate, has risen to national prominence in recent months as part of mass protests over racism and police brutality — driven in part by the killing of Rayshard Brooks by Atlanta police.
