Since then, many U.S. mayors, governors, and attorney generals have announced that they will continue to support the efforts of the agreement despite 45's decision.

What's going on: On Saturday, thousands of Americans in over 130 cities joined the March for Truth to demand an independent investigation into 45's ties to Russia and Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Today, a top-secret NSA report revealed that Russian military intelligence executed a cyberattack on at least one U.S. voting software supplier last year, sending spear-phishing emails to more than 100 local election officials just days before the election.

What's going on: Last week, Republican Senator Richard Burr said in an interview that it's "unlikely" that the Senate will come up with a healthcare plan this year. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McMconnel stated that he doesn't know how the Senate would be able to get the 51 votes required to pass a healthcare bill. Today, leaked information revealed a 45 administration plan that would allow employers to remove birth control coverage from insurance plans.
