Thousands of protestors in Brussels clashed with police on Sunday as they demonstrated against a UN migration pact signed by Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel last week, reports the BBC.

Why it matters: The mass protest near the European Union complex attracted some 5,500 people and was organized by the right-wing N-VA party, which resigned from Belgium's federal government over Michel's decision to sign the agreement. The UN pact, which aims to foster international cooperation on refugees and migration, is facing pressure from the Trump administration, which argues the document harms sovereignty and legitimizes illegal migration.

Trump tightens screws on ByteDance to sell Tiktok

President Trump added more pressure Friday night on China-based TikTok parent ByteDance to exit the U.S., ordering it to divest all assets related to the U.S. operation of TikTok within 90 days.

Between the lines: The order means ByteDance must be wholly disentangled from TikTok in the U.S. by November. Trump had previously ordered TikTok banned if ByteDance hadn't struck a deal within 45 days. The new order likely means ByteDance has just another 45 days after that to fully close the deal, one White House source told Axios.

In her first sit-down interview since being named Joe Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris talked about what she'll do to fight for women if elected VP, and how the Democrats are thinking about voter turnout strategies ahead of November.

What they're saying: "In a Biden-Harris administration women are going to be a priority, understanding that women have many priorities and all of them must be acknowledged," Harris told The 19th*'s Errin Haines-Whack.
