Directly addressing the allegations that have upended his stalled campaign, former VP Joe Biden issued a statement denying sexual assault allegations made by Tara Reade - a former staffer who claims Biden digitally penetrated her against her wishes back in the early 1990s.
In the statement, Biden said the alleged assault "never happened" and that his papers at the University of Delaware include no mention of the incident.
The statement begins: "So I want to address allegations by a former staffer that I engaged in misconduct 27 years ago. They aren’t true. This never happened."

Update (1340ET): Asked if his twitter remarks were vetted by the company, or if they were a joke, Musk responded with a cryptic "no".
That sounds like a pretty clear admission of being in violation of his agreement with the SEC to allow Tesla's board to approve all of his tweets pertaining to the company.

Tesla cuts price for China-made Model 3 cars by 10% to qualify for subsidies
China had announced plans in 2015 to end subsidies for electric vehicles this year, but said in March it would extend them. However, it said the subsidies will apply only to passenger cars costing less than 300,000 yuan.
cos at that level just fed is then as big as us yearly gdp. they wont be able to service it from ticket sales unless rates go under zero. and negative rates kills 90% of financial sector in us (the model cant cope with negative rates. eu is slightly diff, better suited but still cant make it work despite this)

Just a conspiracy theory. The equity market retraces over these 2 days as most people expected. Does trade really so easy? I suspect the big players will push the stock indicies to break previous high before a substantial correction. If that is the case, my expected target for AUD is 0.6650, while not closing below 0.6360 .

California Gov. Gavin Newsom has backed down from closing all beaches in the State of California, explaining to reporters and to local officials on Thursday that the closure would apply only to Orange County.
On Wednesday, Los Angeles Fox affiliate KTTV 11 reported that Newsom intended to close all beaches and state parks in the state, effective May 1. In his daily coronavirus press briefing, he said the “hard close” would only apply to Orange County.

The Michigan House of Representatives declined to extend Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s state of emergency another 28 days, and INSTEAD VOTED on Thursday TO SUE HER.
Whitmer’s initial state of emergency order, which is separate from the stay-at-home order, expires on Thursday and requires legislative action to be lengthened.
Negotiations on that front fell apart on Wednesday when Whitmer refused to make any concessions on the matter, asserting she has the ultimate control of emergencies.
So the House voted to authorize Speaker Lee Chatfield to sue the governor, saying Whitmer’s “unchecked and undemocratic approach” is not the best way, ABC 12 reported.
“The current status quo relies on one-size-fits-all edicts that unfairly punish millions of people across the state without giving them any recourse or voice in the process,” Chatfield said.
“The people deserve a better solution, and we can provide it.”
