Trump, the Mormons in Utah and a splintering GOP 34 MIN, 4 SEC

Utah hasn't gone Democratic in 52 years, but Donald Trump may be turning it into a swing state. His campaign against Islam reminds Mormons of brutal persecution against their religion. Doubling down on his appeal to the base, he's asking evangelical Christians not just to vote for him, but to pray for him, too. That's troubling other constituencies, including white women who favor women's rights and same-sex marriage. In the process, Trump is accentuating divisions within the Republican Party that are likely to outlive his presidential campaign.

Nation's most segregated city marred by racial tensions 9 MIN, 31 SEC

There was violence again last night in Milwaukee, America's most segregated city.

Police say body cams show Sylville Smith, the black man killed by police on Saturday, refused to drop a gun loaded with more bullets than the gun of the black cop who shot him. The details will be subject to an independent investigation. But the violent outbreak was the result of racial tensions that have been seething in Milwaukee for decades. That's according to Craig Gilbert, Washington Bureau Chief for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
