Donald Trump visits his golf club amid outrage over remarks about US war dead - 2020-09-05
Donald Trump visited one of his own golf courses on Saturday amid one of the worst recent scandals to his presidency in recent months and after expert warnings that up to 400,000 Americans could die of the coronavirus before the end of the year.
Trump's re-election bid is in turmoil after multiple reports of disparaging remarks he made about veterans and US soldiers that have caused widespread outrage, including calling them "suckers" and "losers". The White House has strongly denied the allegations.
Separately, a new report was published by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington's School of Medicine, that forecast the US death toll from the pandemic could hit 400,000 by 1 January 2021.
