Around 20 other people in Mr Trump’s circle have also tested positive, including his wife, Melania, Stephen Miller, an adviser, and Chris Christie, a former governor who helped Mr Trump prepare for his first debate.

The Department of Homeland Security said that white supremacists are “the most persistent and lethal” terrorist threat to America, as foreign groups are “constrained” in their ability to conduct attacks. Since 2018 white racists have carried out more lethal assaults in the United States than any other extremist group, targeting racial and religious minorities, gay people and fans of globalisation.
美国国土安全部表示，白人至上主义者是对美国“最持久、最致命的”恐怖主义威胁，因为外国组织发动袭击的能力“受到限制” 。自2018年以来，白人种族主义者在美国实施的致命袭击比其他任何极端组织都多，他们的目标是种族和宗教少数派、同性恋者和全球化支持者 。

A British appeals court ruled in favour of Nicolás Maduro’s regime in Venezuela in a dispute over who controls nearly $2bn-worth of gold stored at the Bank of England. The court overturned a decision by the High Court, which said that because Britain recognises the leader of the opposition, Juan Guaidó, as the country’s interim president, he is in charge of the gold. The appeals court said that Britain’s recognition of Mr Guaidó is ambiguous and sent the case back to the High Court for a clearer ruling on which man is Venezuela’s president in the eyes of British law.
