President Trump joined French President Emmanuel Macron and other world leaders in Normandy, northwest France, Thursday for commemorative ceremonies marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
Details: Commemorative events took place in locations including the region's beaches, where Allied troops landed 75 years ago. It led to the Nazis being forced out of France and changed the course of the Second World War.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday urged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to use a $908 billion bipartisan coronavirus relief framework as a basis for jumpstarting negotiations.
Why it matters: The framework, introduced by a group of bipartisan senators on Tuesday, calls for significantly less funding than Pelosi had previously demanded — a sign that Democrats are ready to further compromise as millions of Americans endure economic hardship.
