Simon & Schuster announced Monday that it will publish a tell-all book written by President Trump's niece Mary on July 14 — two weeks earlier than previously planned — due to "high demand and extraordinary interest."

Why it matters: The current No. 1 book on Amazon's best-seller list — titled, “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man" — is expected to shed light on intimate details of the president's family life from the perspective of Mary Trump, who has a doctorate in psychology.

  • Simon & Schuster's decision comes days after a New York appellate judge overturned an injunction against the publishing company, allowing it to move forward with publication over the objections of Trump's family.
  • The president has claimed that Mary Trump signed a nondisclosure agreement and is "not allowed" to publish her book.

What they're saying:

"Mary Trump spent much of her childhood in her grandparents’ large, imposing house in the heart of Queens, New York where Donald and his four siblings grew up. She describes a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse. She explains how specific events and general family patterns created the damaged man who currently occupies the Oval Office, including the strange and harmful relationship between Fred Trump and his two oldest sons, Fred Jr. and Donald.
A firsthand witness to countless holiday meals and family interactions, Mary brings an incisive wit and unexpected humor to sometimes grim, often confounding events. She recounts in unsparing detail everything from her uncle Donald’s place in the family spotlight and Ivana’s penchant for regifting to her grandmother’s frequent injuries and the appalling way Donald, Fred Trump’s favorite son, dismissed and derided him when he began to succumb to Alzheimer's."

The Big Ten announced Tuesday that it has voted to postpone its 2020 fall sports season, including football, due to risks posed by the coronavirus pandemic, hoping instead to play in the spring.

Why it matters: The move from one of the most prominent conferences in college sports will almost certainly prompt other Power Five leagues to follow suit.

In a show of unity at the Democratic National Convention, 13 of Joe Biden's former 2020 challengers will appear via video to talk about the party's vision for the country and how they'll work with Biden to get it done.

Why it matters: Coalescing around Biden and his eventual running mate will help Democrats head into the general election against President Trump with a united front — unlike what they did in 2016.
