Nyon, Switzerland | AFP | Cristiano Ronaldo’s Real Madrid will continue their bid for a first European Cup treble in 40 years against Neymar’s Paris Saint-Germain after the big-spending duo were on Monday drawn together in a mouth-watering Champions League last 16 clash.No club has won the European title three years running since Bayern Munich in the mid-1970s, underlining how big an achievement it would be if Madrid — 12 times winners overall — won the trophy again in the final in Kiev in May.They know exactly what it takes to be European champions, and in Ronaldo have the most prolific goal-scorer in the competition’s history.Emilio Butragueno, a Real director and former striker, regretted that one of the favourites would be eliminated so soon in the competition.“For the potential of the two teams, luck has worked out this way and one of the two teams will be out at the last 16 stage, which we think is a bit soon taking into account they are two of the contenders for the title,” Butragueno told BeIN Sports Spain.PSG made waves in the transfer market in the close season when they signed Brazilian star Neymar for a world-record 222 million euros ($261.5 million), followed closely by great French hope Kylian Mbappe, who will cost 180m euros when his loan deal becomes permanent next summer.“Every summer they have signed great players, they get stronger all the time and they have had a nearly impeccable group stage,” acknowledged Butragueno. “With Neymar and Mbappe they have improved a lot up front, they are a very dangerous team who will demand the best of us. We need to face both games like finals and for the fans it will be a thrilling tie.“Mbappe and Neymar are very dangerous. We need to play at our best, but we can’t forget this team has won the Champions League twice, we hope to have all the injured players back and the key is who has the luck over two games.” Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2
In the wake of George Floyd’s death while in police custody and the justified protests that followed, many on the left are calling for criminal justice reform and the drastic measure of defunding the police. President Trump disagrees with the left and Monday declared during a White House roundtable with members of law enforcement: The police are doing a “fantastic” job.“There won’t be defunding, there won’t be dismantling of our police and there is not going to be any disbanding of our police,” he said at the afternoon event.“We want to make sure we don’t have any bad actors in there, and sometimes, you’ll see some horrible things like we witnessed recently, but 99 — I say 99.9, but let’s go with 99% of them are great, great people, and they’ve done jobs that are record setting — record setting,” Trump said.December, 2018, President Trump signed of the First Step Act, which addresses the disparities of federal sentencing guidelines that are especially harsh on repeat black offenders. It was the Democrats during the Clinton administration that established the “three strike rule” to lock up habitual offenders for life. Many of these suspects were minorities simply guilty of committing survival crimes. Now, the Dems want to defund the police.How did the Democrats end up here? Part of the problem dates to the 1994 crime bill, which Joe Biden spearheaded, as the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and President Bill Clinton signed into law. The bill was a response to alarming rates of violent crime and the counter Republican accusations that Democrats were soft on the issue. It included an assault-weapons ban and the Violence Against Women Act, but it also imposed harsh federal sentences and mandatory “three strikes” rules. Hillary Clinton has been in public service most of her life, but during her 2016 presidential campaign she was blasted for a term she used for criminals in 1996, “superpredators,” saying that “we have to bring them to heel.” Now, nearly three decades later, Joe Biden faces his own third strike as he makes his third run for the White House. Biden must answer for his role in legislation that criminal justice experts and his critics say helped lay the groundwork for the mass incarceration that has devastated America’s black communitie“It doesn’t matter whether or not they’re the victims of society,” Mr. Biden said in 1993, adding, “I don’t want to ask, ‘What made them do this?’ They must be taken off the street.”Today’s roundtable comes on the heels of Minneapolis City Council announcing Sunday that it would disband the city’s police force in the wake of Floyd’s death and long-standing issues with police conduct.The issue of criminal justice will have a major impact on the 2020 election. The quesrion is not whether black voters will vote for Biden or Trump, bit whether they will be inspired to vote show up to the polls at all.
