In politics, President Donald Trump delivered remarks at a local school in Washington, D.C. and spoke at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum, while First Lady Melania Trump paid a visit to the Children's National Medical Center for the opening of the Bunny Mellon Healing Garden.

Peaceful rallies were held in Los Angeles on Saturday to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the LA riots after police were acquitted in the beating of Rodney King.
