President Trump vowed Sunday night that, if necessary, he would use the U.S. military to assist in controlling the looting and violent protests taking place throughout the country, which has raised questions on what degree the armed forces can legally get involved with domestic law enforcement.

The framework for this is largely set by two laws: the Posse Comitatus Act and the Insurrection Act.

Dozens of cities across the United States were left early Sunday to assess the toll of a grim night of violent riots that left at least three dead, dozens injured, hundreds arrested and buildings and businesses in charred ruins as protests over the death of a black Minneapolis man in police custody continued for a fifth day.

Two American astronauts lifted off into space Saturday afternoon, for the first time on a private rocket, nearly a decade after the last launch of astronauts from American territory.

Astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken headed for orbit at 3:22 p.m. EDT, on schedule, from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida, on a rocket, designed and built by a private company. They are scheduled to dock with the International Space Station on Sunday.

The California-based SpaceX Aerospace Co. is owned by billionaire Elon Musk.

CAPE CANAVERAL, FLA. - The first astronauts launched by SpaceX are breaking new ground for style with hip spacesuits, gull-wing Teslas and a sleek rocketship — all of it white with black trim.   

The color coordinating is thanks to Elon Musk, the driving force behind both SpaceX and Tesla, and a big fan of flash and science fiction.   

NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken like the fresh new look. They'll catch a ride to the launch pad in a Tesla Model X electric car.

WHITE HOUSE - U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters Monday that he is taking an anti-malaria drug to ward off COVID-19.  

“I’ve taken it for a week-and-a-half now and I’m still here,” Trump said during a meeting in the White House State Dining Room. “What do you have to lose?”  

The president explained that he is combining a hydroxychloroquine pill daily with zinc and regularly tests negative for COVID-19.

There’s a reason why some people believe government officials are exaggerating the number of COVID-19 fatalities.

One problem is the hodgepodge way states tally those numbers, Fox News has found.

Some states count presumed coronavirus deaths along with confirmed cases under Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance issued last month. Other states don’t count those deaths.

President Donald Trump said Friday he wants to have a coronavirus vaccine by the end of the year, as he named two leaders of a new development effort.

At a White House ceremony, Trump announced that former GlaxoSmithKline GSK, +0.12% executive Moncef Slaoui and Army Gen. Gustave Perna would head “Operation Warp Speed.”

Trump’s timeline for a vaccine is faster than predicted by health officials. Dr. Anthony Fauci, for example, has said developing one could take at least a year and potentially longer.

NEW YORK - Treats made and delivered by neighbors. Fresh garden plantings dug from a safe 6 feet away. Trips around the world set up room-to-room at home.

Mother's Day this year is a mix of love and extra imagination as families do without their usual brunches and huggy meet-ups.

As the pandemic persists in keeping families indoors or a safe social distance apart, online searches have increased for creative ways to still make moms feel special.

An internal document featuring charts produced by FEMA projects far more new coronavirus cases than the White House has forecast and nearly double the current daily death toll by the end of the month — but sources have raised questions about the reliability of the data.

In a statement, White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere stressed that the document is not from the White House, and that it hasn't been presented to the Coronavirus Task Force.

A biotech company says its experimental drug has proved effective against the new coronavirus in a major U.S. government study that put it to a strict test.

Gilead Sciences's remdesivir would be the first treatment to pass such a test against the virus, which has killed more than 218,000 people since it emerged late last year. Having a treatment could have a profound effect on the global pandemic, especially because health officials say any vaccine is likely a year or more away.
