President Donald Trump's top general is basically throwing cold water on the idea of using the military to put down protest amid the ongoing demonstrations sparked by the death last week of George Floyd. US defence secretary Mark Esper today saying he does not support invoking the insurrection act to deploy active duty military in US streets to quell civil unrest despite threats loosed by president Trump.

The option to use active duty forces and law enforcement roll should only be used as a matter of last resort. And only in the most urgent and dire situations. We are not in one of those situations now. I do not support invoking the insurrection act.

Military troops who were brought into Washington have not been deployed Esper meanwhile disputed the reports national guard force fired tear gas or rubber bullets, to clear the streets near the White House Monday to allow president Trump to walk to a nearby church for a photo-op.

Former president Obama spoke out today about the protests and demonstrations happening around the country but avoided mentioning president Trump. NPR's Domenico Montanaro reports.

Speaking at a vitual town hall for his foundation, Obama said he's been inspired by multi-ethnic, multi-racial, peaceful demonstrations across the country. And he called protests that have turned violent, a tiny minority of what's taking place. The former president called on mayors to review their local police forces practices and report what's pacific reforms they're going to enact. And he called out discussions on social media about protesting versus voting as presenting a false choice to bring real change, Obama said takes both. You have to highlight the problem and make people in power uncomfortable and also get involved in politics. Domenico Montanaro NPR News, Washington.

Stocks gained ground on Wall Street today, the Dow Jones industrial average up 527 points to 26,269. The NASDAQ was up 74 points. This is NPR.

Help may be on the way for coranovirus victims in Venezuela. NPR's Philip Reeves says the country's embattled leader Nicolas Maduro has struck a deal with opposition rivals over international aid.

President Maduro claims fewer than 20 Venezuelans have been killed by the virus. And only few thousand are infected. Not many medical experts believe him. They warn Venezuelans facing a potential catastrophe,  fueled by chronic shortages of water, medicines, health staffer and respirators in Venezuela's hospitals. Now Maduro, the opposition have unacceptably agreed to raise funds together to fight the virus along with the world health organization. The oppositions led by Juan Guaido who's recognized the Venezuela's interim president by the US and dozens of other nations, although Maduro remains in chage. The speculation, is a narrow deal, might now pave the way for a wide political agreement after long stalemate. Philip Reeves NPR News.
