.@melindagates: “After 20 years of gains on extreme poverty, we now have another over 35 million people dropping backwards into extreme poverty, which means they live on less than $1.90 a day. That is unbelievable… We’re going to have a lot of building back to do – a lot.”
“It’s going to take us probably decades – probably one decade, and in some areas two, to regain back” what has been lost due to coronavirus, says @melindagates.
.@melindagates: “There is good modeling that says if [the first set of vaccine doses] only go to rich world countries, you're going to have twice as much death around the world. So the U.S. needs to be at that table, and it's not right now, and that is a tragedy for everybody.”

When investigative journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was murdered by car bomb in 2017, it was a shocking attack on freedom of the press and a heartbreaking loss for her family.

Now we may be getting that bit closer to bringing those responsible to justice.
Six months after Daphne was killed, I spoke with her sons, Matthew and Paul. They swore they would stop at nothing to bring those responsible to justice: edition.cnn.com/videos/world/2…
Now, Maltese PM Joseph Muscat has announced he will resign, after the investigation into the murder appeared to implicate government officials.

When I spoke to him the day after Daphne's murder, he told me there would be "no impunity" for her killer.

THREAD: Just two weeks ago, I spoke with @HurdOnTheHill.


On Thursday, he announced he wouldn't run for re-election.

On July 15, he told me: "I go into communities that most Republicans don't show up in order to take a conservative message."
@HurdOnTheHill 2/ I read Hurd a quote from Joe Straus, the Republican former speaker of the Texas House of Representatives.

Straus said: “I think he is Exhibit A in Texas for what the future of the Republican Party needs to be.”
@HurdOnTheHill 3/ "What I like to say, I'm the face of the future Republican Party," Hurd told me just two weeks ago.
