Opinion | Hillary Clinton: How Kamala Harris Can Win and Make History
Quick Glance: Republican Leaders Caution Against Racist, Sexist Attacks on Harris
  • Republican leaders are warning party members against using overtly racist and sexist attacks against Vice President Kamala Harris, as they and former President Donald Trump’s campaign scramble to adjust to the reality of a new Democratic rival less than four months before Election Day.

  • At a closed-door meeting of House Republicans, National Republican Congressional Committee chairman Richard Hudson urged lawmakers to criticize Harris solely for her role in the Biden-Harris administration policies.

  • The warnings point to the new risks for Republicans in running against a Democrat who would become the first woman, first Black woman, and first person of South Asian descent to win the White House.

  • Trump and allies have begun to refer to Harris as a 'DEI' hire - a nod to diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.

Quick Glance: Bangladesh Dramatically Reduces Quota System
  • The Supreme Court of Bangladesh has decided to drastically reduce the number of government jobs reserved for war veterans and their descendants, following violent student protests that resulted in over 100 deaths.

  • The court ruling reduces quotas for various groups and abolishes quotas for women and individuals from specific districts. Overall, the ruling shrinks the number of reserved jobs from 56 to 7 percent, opening up more civil service jobs to university students.

  • Protests erupted after the quota system was abolished in 2018 and reinstated this year. The escalation of violence led to the government imposing a curfew and deploying the military to quell the protests.

  • The quota system was introduced by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the founding leader of Bangladesh, and later expanded. Students demanded that government positions should be mainly filled based on merit, leading to the court's decision to drastically reduce the quota system.

Quick Glance: Judge Dismisses Trump's Indictment in Classified Documents Case
  • A federal judge dismissed the indictment against former President Donald Trump in his classified documents case, ruling that the appointment of special counsel Jack Smith by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland was unconstitutional.
