  • At Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, President Joe Biden says white supremacy is a “poison” and has no place in America. In a campaign speech Monday, he underscored what he wants Americans to know he believes is at stake in the November presidential election.
  • President Joe Biden has pardoned six people who've served out sentences after convictions on a murder charge and drug- and alcohol-related crimes. Those granted pardons include an 80-year-old Ohio woman convicted of killing her abusive husband about a half-century ago and an Arizona man who pleaded guilty to using a telephone for a cocaine transaction in the 1970s. The other people pardoned are from South Carolina, Florida and California.
  • Jill Biden says her relationship with a "prayer partner" from South Carolina helped lead her back to God. The first lady says she couldn't bring herself to pray for years after son Beau died of brain cancer in 2015. She says she felt "betrayed" and "broken" by her faith. But everything changed in May 2019, when she accompanied her husband to a Baptist church as he campaigned for the presidency. That's when the pastor's wife, Robin Jackson, asked to be her "prayer partner." Jill Biden says that, when Jackson spoke, it was like God telling her it was time to "come home."
