2020 candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren released her "Green Manufacturing Plan" Tuesday, a $2 trillion proposal to develop the technology needed to power the Green New Deal over the next decade.

Why it matters: Warren is seeking to strike a progressive tone that focuses less on regulations and explicit goals and more on manufacturing and jobs than some other Democratic candidates as divisions emerge between the party and labor unions over the Green New Deal.

Details: The three elements of Warren's plan include...

  • Green Apollo Program: Focused on clean energy manufacturing, the program would invest $400 billion in funding toward "clean energy research and development."
  • Green Industrial Mobilization: A $1.5 trillion investment to purchase "American-made clean, renewable, and emission-free energy products for federal, state, and local use, and for export."
  • Green Marshall Plan: A new federal office focused on selling green, American-made products abroad that calls for $100 billion in investment towards "assisting countries to purchase and deploy this technology."

Between the lines: Warren avoids an explicit goal for reducing emissions, instead opting to say more generally that her plan will help achieve "the ambitious goals" of the Green New Deal, which calls for net-zero U.S. carbon emissions by as soon as 2030.

President Trump told the New York Post on Thursday that he plans to deliver his Republican National Convention speech from the White House lawn, despite bipartisan criticism of the optics and legality of the location.

Why it matters: Previous presidents avoided blurring staged campaign-style events — like party conventions — with official business of governing on the White House premises, per Politico.

Antibody drugs and various medicine cocktails against the coronavirus are progressing and may provide some relief before vaccines.

The big picture: Everyone wants to know how and when they can return to "normal" life, as vaccines are not expected to be ready for most Americans for at least a year. Two therapies are known to be helpful, and more could be announced by late September, NIAID Director Anthony Fauci tells Axios.
