Left-leaning news sites are still hammering on Trump and his administration's response to Charlottesville, while right-wing sites focus on the destruction coming from the "alt-left" and other stories. President Trump might have promised to bring healing and unity, but his off-the-cuff speech about Charlottesville yesterday only seems to have driven division.

Left-Leaning:

  1. Daily Beast: "'Clean up on aisle Trump': Aides Shocked by Latest Presser"
  2. HuffPost: "All the President's Men" featuring a photo of protestors bearing torches on Friday night
  3. ThinkProgress: "Fox News website features story glorifying running over liberal protestors with cars"
  4. Salon: "GOP Zealot Blames 'Hard Left'"
  5. MSNBC: "Maddow: Racism 'a persistent infection' in white American culture'"

Right Leaning:

  1. Daily Caller: "Sin of O-mission. EXCLUSIVE: Obama Never Told 21 States Russians Were Hacking Their Voting Systems"
  2. Breitbart: "Next on Liberals' List For Destruction: Confederate Carvings at Stone Mountain Memorial"
  3. The Washington Times: "Trump says 'alt-left' also to blame for Charlottesville violence, warns against eradicating statues"
  4. The Blaze: "Black Lives Matter: All Confederate symbols should be banned"
  5. Fox News: "'Entirely Correct' WH stands by Trump in blaming both sides for Charlottesville violence"

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will announce Monday that she's running for governor of Arkansas.

The big picture: Sanders was touted as a contender after it was announced she was leaving the Trump administration in June 2019. Then-President Trump tweeted he hoped she would run for governor, adding "she would be fantastic." Sanders is "seen as leader in the polls" in the Republican state, notes the Washington Post's Josh Dawsey, who first reported the news.

Coronavirus has inflamed global inequality

History will likely remember the pandemic as the "first time since records began that inequality rose in virtually every country on earth at the same time." That's the verdict from Oxfam's inequality report covering the year 2020 — a terrible year that hit the poorest, hardest across the planet.

Why it matters: The world's poorest were already in a race against time, facing down an existential risk in the form of global climate change. The coronavirus pandemic could set global poverty reduction back as much as a full decade, according to the World Bank.
