Trump's attempt to block a subpoena for his tax returns was rejected by federal judge, another blow to keeping his financial records private. Thursday's ruling by U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero comes a little over a month after the Supreme Court ruled President Donald Trump cannot keep tax returns away from Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, who issued the subpoena in an investigation of hush money payments made during the 2016 presidential race.

President Donald Trump crosses delegate threshold to become GOP nominee during roll call at Republican National Convention. Trump crossed the delegate threshold Monday afternoon. Trump's nomination was never in question. Presidential nominating conventions haven’t been contested for decades and Trump ran virtually unopposed. But the formal roll call is nevertheless a symbolic milestone, an expression of the party’s support of the president. Ref. USAToday.
