Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the BBC on Tuesday that she's "under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about" entering the 2020 race.

What she's saying: Clinton told BBC Radio 5 Live's Emma Barnett that she thinks "all the time" about what it would've been like to be commander in chief if she had defeated President Trump in 2016.

The big picture: With no clear frontrunner in the crowded Democrats' 2020 field, billionaire former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg filed paperwork last Friday to enter the 2020 presidential primary in Alabama, though he has yet to decide if he'll run.

  • Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is thinking about joining the race, per AP.

Protests over the death of George Floyd and other police-related killings of black people continued for a seventh day across the U.S., with President Trump threatening on Monday to deploy the military if the unrest continues.

The latest: New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted early Tuesday that he'd just left the Bronx and the police commissioner was sending additional assistance to problem areas. Protesters were "overwhelmingly peaceful" Monday, he said. "But some people tonight had nothing to do with the cause + stole + damaged instead," he added.

A trio of civil rights leaders issued a blistering statement Monday following a meeting with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and other top executives to discuss the social network's decision to leave up comments from President Trump they say amount to calls for violence and voter suppression.

Why it matters: While Twitter has flagged two of the president's Tweets, one for being potentially misleading about mail-in ballot procedures and another for glorifying violence, Facebook has left those and other posts up, with CEO Mark Zuckerberg saying he doesn't want to be the "arbiter of truth."
