This morning Trump met with CEOs he called: "the biggest and the best minds, in the country." A few of the main takeaways, per White House pool report:

  • Trump is "very happy" with this morning's job's report, his first as POTUS.
  • Promised that there will be "tax bill very soon, a healthcare bill even sooner."
  • On the auto industry: "They're pouring back into the country already."
  • "We have some of the bankers here. There's nobody better to tell me about Dodd Frank than Jamie, so you're going to tell me about it," POTUS said, referring to Jamie Dimon, the JPMorgan Chase CEO;
We expect to be cutting a lot out of Dodd Frank, because frankly I have so many people, friends of mine, that have nice businesses and they can't borrow money ... they just can't get any money because the banks just won't let them borrow because of the rules and regulations in Dodd Frank. So we'll be talking about that in terms of the banking industry.

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.
