A new Washington Post-Ipsos poll finds that 83% of African Americans across the country believe President Trump is a racist and he's exacerbated the country's race problems while in office.

The big picture: African Americans are optimistic about their own personal lives, but are worried about their communities as a whole, the Post writes. Many said they hope to limit Trump's presidency to one term.

The poll's findings:

  • 65% of African Americans said it a "bad time" to be a black person in America while 77% said it's a "good time" to be a white person.
  • 9 out of 10 disapprove of Trump's overall job performance.

Beirut residents are still clearing rubble from streets that appear war-torn, days after a blast that shocked the country and horrified the world.

Aug. 8, 2005 — "The Situation Room's" debut on CNN wherein the host first said: "I'm Wolf Blitzer and you're in The Situation Room, where news and information from around the world arrive in one place simultaneously!"

The state of play: When the pandemic took off in the U.S. in March, Blitzer started working 7 days a week for 60+ days, until he took a Sunday off. Then he continued 7 days a week until he took a few days off.
