Story 3 – Fox host pushes back after Trump campaign spokesman says things ‘undoubtedly’ better than four years ago
The Hill reports: Brian Kilmeade, a host on “Fox & Friends,” pushed back Wednesday when a Trump campaign spokesperson said things were “undoubtedly” better today than four years ago.
“Listen, the president wants to go in there and talk about all the accomplishments he’s done in his first term and how he’s made people’s lives better,” said Hogan Gidley, who recently moved from the White House to become the Trump campaign’s new national press secretary.
“It answers the age-old question — are you better off now than you were before? And the answer, undoubtedly, is yes,” he added. Kilmeade pushed back on Gidley’s remarks, reminding him Americans are currently experiencing a public health and economic crisis.
Hogan Gidley: Are you better off now than you were before? The answer undoubtedly is yes.
Brian Kilmeade: With the pandemic, growth is not there & unemployment is at 11%. So at least because of the pandemic, you can’t really say that, right?
Gidley: Of course you can say that. pic.twitter.com/yoIRklOyBh

Story 4 – Trump’s Niece Mary Says She Leaked Family Documents to the New York Times
The Wall Street Journal reports: Mary L. Trump, President Trump’s niece, leaked critical financial documents about the Trump family to the New York Times in 2017 in an effort to damage the president, she wrote in a coming book that tells a bitter story about the president’s upbringing and family dynamics.
In her memoir, Ms. Trump said she decided to share the documents—some related to a decades-old dispute within the family over her grandfather’s estate—because of her concerns regarding the policies of the president.
“I had to take Donald down,” Ms. Trump wrote in “Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created The World’s Most Dangerous Man,” a copy of which was obtained by The Wall Street Journal. The book will be published on July 14 by Simon & Schuster, the book-publishing arm of ViacomCBS Inc.
