President Trump’s longtime doctor told NBC News that three men raided his New York office last year in February and seized 35 years of the president's medical records.

The details: Harold Bornstein reportedly said a Trump bodyguard later turned White House aide, a Trump Organization lawyer and a third man carried out the seizure, which left him feeling "raped, frightened and sad." NBC News reports that it occurred after Bornstein told The New York Times he had prescribed a medicine for Trump to stimulate his hair growth.

White House response: Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed the NBC News report, calling the action a “standard procedure" for a newly elected president. She also disputes the characterization of former White House aide Keith Schiller seizing records as a raid.

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.
