Jamilah King (JK): During your time in the Senate you’ve spoken out repeatedly about voting rights, a huge issue leading into the 2020 presidential election. What role do you think Democrats in the Senate play in statewide efforts to fight voter suppression? The Republicans still control the Senate, after all.
DJ: In Washington, DC, about the only thing that Senate Democrats can do is speak out and continue to raise awareness. I think we’re on the right side of history when it comes to these issues. I’m hoping that not just Democrats, but people of goodwill across the political spectrum will see the importance of easy access to the ballot box, trying to get our voter participation up as high as it can go so that Democrats and Republicans compete for those votes, not just take things for granted.
DJ: I’m crazy about all of my Senate colleagues. They’re incredibly bright folks that have a lot to add to this upcoming primary season. My closest friend in this field of candidates has been someone I’ve known for 40 years. He’s not in there yet, but I expect him to be, and that’s former Vice President Joe Biden. Despite the issues that he’s faced, I still think he has the ability to reach people from all ends of the political spectrum and govern this country.
JK: Finally, are you having a good time? Are you having fun on Capitol Hill?
DJ: I love being a United States senator. I mean, it can get frustrating at times, it can get wacky at times. It is incredibly busy. But every day I am so honored to be here, to walk these halls, to walk on the floor. I started my career out of law school working for Sen. Howell Heflin on the Judiciary Committee and I have walked off the floor of the U.S. Senate as a staffer with him in 1980 and to walk back on in 2018 in his seat is just a remarkable journey and an honor for me, and I love every second of it.
Jones is unflinching in reiterating that “whoever” is nominated, if a Democrat, he will unreservedly support their candidacy for president of the United States.
“But whatever we do, I’ll end up supporting the nominee. We’re not going to run away from that. And I hope to have some of my colleagues come down here at some point. We’ll see how that goes,” Jones remarked at a recent press junket.

U.S. Reports 1,200 Wuhan Virus Deaths in One Day as Mainstream Media Tows the Chinese Communist Party Line
On April 7, 2020 the United States faced its deadliest day of the Wuhan Virus crisis.
According to NBC News, the Wuhan Virus killed 1,264 people over a 24 hour span in America as of 2:05 am ET on April 7. So far, 10,906 Americans have fallen to the Wuhan Virus.
On the other hand, NBC reported that not one death was recorded in the city of Wuhan, where the virus originated.

Meanwhile in China, where the pandemic broke out, not a single new coronavirus death was reported. https://t.co/ooXkR9X2L5

In the meantime, the Trump Administration has maintained a level-headed approach dealing with the virus.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious diseases expert, stated on April 6 he was “cautiously optimistic” that the worst case scenarios could be avoided “if we keep our foot on the accelerator” — making reference to social distancing policies that are in place in most of the country.
Fauci and other officials tasked with handing this crisis stressed the importance of stay-at-home orders during a briefing.
“I don’t think anyone has ever mitigated the way I’m seeing people mitigate right now,” he remarked.
On a more negative note, President Donald Trump warned that in the next week-and-a-half there would be a “big surge” in Wuhan Virus cases and deaths.
The president also noted that his administration was targeting certain places that have been disproportionately affected, which included New York, the city that has been the most impacted by the Wuhan Virus.
“We are pressing into action the full power of American government and American enterprise in our military has been incredible,” he stated.
The lockdown is now being lifted in Wuhan.
A spokesman for China’s National Health Commission warned his countrymen to stay on guard because the country still faces the risk of new outbreaks that could come about as a result of domestic and imported cases.
On April 6, Chinese health officials confirmed the occurrence of 32 new cases of the Wuhan Virus in mainland China.
In a similar vein, Wuhan only reported two new cases of the virus in the past two weeks.
However, these numbers should be a taken with a grain of salt.
After all, China is an authoritarian country, so it will not be known for its respect for transparency.
Previously, the Chinese government reportedly disappeared a scientist that blew the whistle on the virus.
Like its other mainstream counterparts, NBC is praising China and advancing its narratives during a time when the entire world is in a state of chaos due to China’s negligence in containing this virus.
The mainstream is clearly in the tank for China.
