  • Trump states "the murder rate in our country is the highest it's been in 47 years"
  • Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell silences Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as she tries to read aloud from a letter written by Coretta Scott King.
  • McConnell states "She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted."
