Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said at the Republican National Convention on Monday night that "Democrats refuse to denounce the mob."

What he's saying: Jordan targeted his statements at the Democratic Party and what President Trump has done to improve the country. "I love the president’s intensity and his willingness to fight," he said. "But what I also appreciate is something most Americans never see — how much he truly cares about people.

  • "Look at what’s happening in America’s cities — all run by Democrats," he continued.
  • "Crime, violence, mob rule. Democrats refuse to denounce the mob. And their response to the chaos? Defund the police, defund border patrol, defund the military. And while they’re doing all of this, they’re also trying to take away your guns.
"Democrats won’t let you go to church, but they’ll let you protest. Democrats won’t let you go to work, but they’ll let you riot. Democrats won’t let you go to school, but they’ll let you loot. President Trump has fought against their crazy ideas."

Reality check: Biden supports the Second Amendment. He released a plan in October that calls for banning the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, mandating universal background checks for all gun sales, except for gifts between close family members.

Jaime Harrison: "We have to transform the Democratic Party"

Jaime Harrison, who lost his bid to unseat Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) after raising record-breaking amounts of money, told CNN on Tuesday that he is open to working with the Biden administration in any capacity, including chairing the Democratic National Committee.

Why it matters: Harrison, who has the support of the influential House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), has said that he would consider the role of DNC chair if offered. On Tuesday, Harrison launched a new PAC focused on long-term investments in areas seen as Democratic reaches, according to AP.

Twitter announced Monday that it will label tweets with potentially misleading information about COVID-19 vaccines, and introduce a strike system that can lead to permanent account suspension.

The big picture: Tech companies are taking an increasingly aggressive stance against users who attempt to share misleading information about COVID-19 vaccines on their platforms.
