Anthony Huber was the hero that tried to apprehend the gunman in #Kenosha, after the gunman shot a BLM protester in the face he ran-up to him with his skateboard to stop him from shooting others. He was shot in the chest by the gunman and died. Rest in power, Anthony Huber.

Trump to visit his hotel to meet with donors and supporters Thursday

President Trump is expected to visit the Trump International Hotel in Washington on Thursday to meet with donors and supporters, according to officials involved in planning the visit. The trip will occur midday, hours before his speech on the South Lawn of the White House.

The hotel has been a hub of activity all week for top donors and Trump supporters, with panels and private events ahead of the convention speech. Some Trump family members, officials and allies have spent time in a private suite there before and after their speeches. Thursday’s event is arranged by Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee for the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee, the officials said.

At least 15 events for donors are scheduled for the hotel, including a panel on “Defeating the Deep State” with former acting U.S. attorney general Matt Whitaker; Pam Bondi, the former Florida attorney general who spoke at the convention Tuesday; and Sebastian Gorka, a former Trump adviser. There’s also a bourbon tasting with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who also spoke Tuesday, and a political update with campaign manager Bill Stepien and deputy campaign manager Justin Clark.

Trade adviser Peter Navarro is giving donors an “Art of the Deal” reception, and VIP guests are also treated to a conference call with Vice President Pence. Corey Lewandowski, David Bossie and Katrina Pierson are hosting a panel on “The Real Joe Biden,” and former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and others are speaking about Trump as “Law and Order President.”

Other administration officials speaking to donors include Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, U.S. Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and White House aide Andrew Giuliani, according to a copy of the agenda reviewed by The Washington Post.

The Raptors and Celtics have left the building (boycott for justice):

Raptors, Celtics players jointly discussing boycott, other measures following Jacob Blake shooting

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- With Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals between the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors just over 24 hours away from its scheduled tip, the possibility of boycotting the game remains on the table for both teams in the wake of the police shooting of Jacob Blake.

Blake, a Black man, was shot at least seven times, apparently in the back, by police on Sunday in Kenosha, Wisconsin, as he attempted to enter the driver's side door of his vehicle with three of his children inside. Video of the shooting was distributed on social media.

"The players are deeply disappointed that the same thing happens again in a relatively short timeframe," Raptors coach Nick Nurse said Wednesday, referring to the killing of George Floyd by police three months ago. "They want to be part of the solution. They want to help. They want justice. They want this particular problem to be handled in a much better way. That's the first thing.

"Boycotting the game has come up for them as a way to try to demand a little more action. That's really what they want. I think there's enough attention and not quite enough action, and that's what I can sense from the discussions, is their disappointment. Like, 'Man, how can we get something to change, like now?' We need something to change, not just attention on the problem. We need a plan of action."

Fencing is being installed near the White House, though its purpose is unclear

Fencing was seen being installed near the White House on Wednesday, though it is unclear what it's for specifically.

Asked about the fencing going up around the White House complex, a White House official would not address security issues, but said there’s “no concern the protests will step on the president’s message.”

President Donald Trump is set to deliver his nomination acceptance speech from the White House on Thursday night, the final night of the Republican National Convention. A fireworks display over the National Mall is planned as well, which reportedly could also draw protesters, and a rally to commemorate the 1963 march on Washington is scheduled for Friday.
