Trump news – live: Supreme Court rules president must hand over tax returns to New York prosecutor as ‘comeback rally’ blamed for Oklahoma coronavirus spike

Donald Trump’s “comeback rally” in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in June has been blamed by a local health official for causing a flare-up in local coronavirus cases, as the US passes the 3m mark since the pandemic began, adding 1m new infections last month alone following its emergence from lockdown.

In a sign of ongoing global opposition to Trump and his administration over their handling of the crisis and subsequent Black Lives Matter demonstrations, a wooden statue of his wife Melania has been set on fire in her native Slovenia as an attack video entitled “#CreepyTrump” goes viral on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the president’s insistence that American schools reopen despite the raging pandemic, which has seen him threaten state governors with funding cuts if they ignore the order, has been branded “irresponsible and dangerous” by Bobby Scott, chairman of the House Education and Labour Committee.
