President Donald Trump bypassed Congress by signing four executive orders at his golf club in New Jersey on Saturday.

One of the executive orders extends unemployment benefits to $400 per week instead of the $600 unemployed Americans received in addition to state unemployment benefits.

The $400 per week benefits are retroactive to the week of August 1.

When a reporter asked if $400 would be a "hardship" for people who were getting $600 plus state benefits, Trump said, "Well, no, this is not a hardship, this is the money that they need."

He added: "This is the money they want. And this gives them a great incentive to go back to work so this is much more than what was originally agreed. The 600 was a number that was there and as you know, there was, there was difficulty with the 600 number because it really was a disincentive."

A second executive order creates a payroll tax holiday for Americans earning less than $100,000 annually. And a third executive order freezes evictions and foreclosures for some renters and mortgage holders until the end of the year, beginning September 1.

A fourth executive order waives penalties and interests for federally held student loans through the end of the year.

In announcing his executive orders, Trump took aim at Congressional Democrats, accusing them of "holding aid hostage" because they want "bailout money for states that have been badly managed for many years".

A group of doctors are holding a "White Coat Summit" on Capitol Hill to address the "massive disinformation campaign" about the coronavirus to which "American life has fallen casualty."

President Donald J. Trump is applauded by physicians as he signs a series of Executive Orders on lowering drug prices on Friday, July 24, 2020, at the White House.

The doctors criticize "so-called experts", news media outlets and celebrities for engaging in misinformation that holds Americans hostage and threatens the constitution.

According to the events' website, "the purpose of the inaugural White Coat Summit is to empower Americans to stop living in fear."

"If Americans continue to let so-called experts and media personalities make their decisions, the great American experiment of a Constitutional Republic with Representative Democracy, will cease," the doctors said on the event's information page.

Panels will present discussions on Schools Reopening; Real Facts Behind the Virus, Identifying Hoaxes; Fear; Medical Cancel Culture, and Follow the Money.

Millions of Americans, such as Reginae Carter, daughter of rapper Lil Wayne, are forced to wear face masks, despite studies in the Journal of American Medicine that show face masks do not block or slow down viruses.

Face masks are worn by doctors to prevent the transfer of bacteria, not a virus, which is 1000 times smaller than a single bacteria. A virus can easily pass through a mask.

The White Coat Summit begins Monday, July 27, at 8:30 a.m.

In an unexpected move, Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg sided with President Trump in his feud with Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey.

After Twitter fact-checked one of Trump's tweets about mail-in-ballots, Trump threatened to end Twitter's immunity from liability (lawsuits) by signing an executive order today.

Trump tweeted that mail-in ballots would be "substantially fraudulent." But Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey fact-checked Trump's tweet, essentially moderating the president.

"Per our Civic Integrity policy, the tweets yesterday may mislead people into thinking they don't need to register to get a ballot (only registered voters receive ballots). We're updating the link on @realDonaldTrump's tweet to make this more clear," Dorsey tweeted.

Trump's executive order removing Twitter's status as a public forum will not only affect Twitter adversely, it will also affect Facebook and other social media platforms.

Twitter and Facebook are privately owned companies and can not be regulated by Trump. But Trump can remove their protections by changing their status from public forums to publishers.

Publishers such as bloggers, who edit and delete content, are vulnerable to lawsuits and do not receive special protections from liabilities as forums do.

That's why Zuckerberg slammed Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey, saying Twitter should stop policing what Trump tweets.

"I don't think that Facebook or internet platforms in general should be arbiters of truth," Zuckerberg told "Squawk Box" co-host Andrew Ross Sorkin in an interview that aired Thursday morning. "Political speech is one of the most sensitive parts in a democracy, and people should be able to see what politicians say."

Dorsey responded to Zuckerberg on Friday, tweeting:

"This does not make us an 'arbiter of truth.' Our intention is to connect the dots of conflicting statements and show the information in dispute so people can judge for themselves."

Ari Fleischer, former White House Press Secretary for George W. Bush, said Dorsey was "incredibly stupid" to correct Trump's tweets. "Where does it end? He hasn't done that to the Iranian president. He hasn't done that to Chinese leaders. Why is he doing it?"

Governor Brian Kemp signed an Executive Order canceling his shelter-in-place order, effective at midnight tonight (April 30).

"Tonight at 11:59 p.m., the statewide shelter in place order for most Georgians will expire. However, moving forward, I am urging Georgians to continue to stay home whenever possible. I want to thank the people of our great state who heeded public health advice, afforded us time to bolster our healthcare infrastructure, and flattened the curve. We were successful in these efforts, but the fight is far from over."

Kemp urged businesses that decide to open to "operate with strict social distancing and sanitation rules to keep customers and employees safe through May 13, 2020."

Gov. Kemp also signed an order requiring the medically fragile and elderly to continue to shelter in place through June 12.

"Together, we will defeat this virus and emerge stronger. Thank you, and God Bless," he concluded.
