President Trump issued a required release of his 2019 financial records after receiving two 45-day extensions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What we know: Trump's minimum income was at least $446 million last year, but it was not specified whether the company took home a profit or a loss.

  • His daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner also shared their financial disclosures on Friday, reporting at least $36 million in income, per Politico.

The records show slightly declining revenue at some of the president's properties in 2019 compared to 2018 — a drop-off that's likely to continue in 2020 due to coronavirus lockdowns and travel industry declines.

  • His Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, fell to $21.4 million in 2019 compared to $22.7 million in 2018, and his Washington, D.C., property dropped to $40.5 million from $40.8 million, per Bloomberg.
  • Trump National Doral golf course in Florida, however, did see an increase in revenue, reaching $77.2 million from $76 million.
  • Trump golf courses in New Jersey, Florida and North Carolina also experienced jumps in revenue.

The president's reported income also includes...

  • The sale of a $13.5 million mansion in Beverly Hills, California.
  • More than $100,000 in royalties from his book "The Art of the Deal."
  • Legal services from Rudy Giuliani are listed as a gift to the president per the request of the Office of Government Ethics, although Trump contends it was not a reportable gift.
  • No other gifts were reported.

The mushroom clouds over Hiroshima and Nagasaki have remained unreplicated for 75 years in part because the U.S. and Soviet Union — after peering over the ledge into nuclear armageddon — began to negotiate.

Why it matters: The arms control era that began after the Cuban Missile Crisis may now be coming to a close. The next phase could be a nuclear free-for-all.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sent a letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy on Thursday calling for the recent Trump appointee to reverse operational changes to the U.S. Postal Service that "threaten the timely delivery of mail" ahead of the 2020 election.

Why it matters: U.S. mail and election infrastructure are facing a test like no other this November, with a record-breaking number of mail-in ballots expected as Americans attempt to vote in the midst of a pandemic.
