New: China dumps US debt, fears dollar plunge (Full show)

After much speculation and worry, the US Federal Reserve has opted not to lower interest rates below zero. Rick Sanchez breaks the news as it unfolds. However despite the Fed's decision, fears over the falling value of US currency have led China to nevertheless decide to actively sell its share of US debt, of which it owns more than trillion dollars, in an attempt to unseat the preeminence of the US dollar in global commerce. Then "Boom Bust" co-host Ben Swann explains the details before joining UK MP George Galloway on a panel to discuss the implications. Two brothers reenacted the death of George Floyd at an "All Lives Matter" protest and were fired after video of the stunt went viral. RT America's Trinity Chavez has the details. RT America's Steve Christakos reports on breaking news in the world of sports. Plus, freelance reporter Ashlee Banks reports on ongoing demonstrations outside the White House and political developments in the wake of the death of George Floyd and the worldwide protest movement it sparked.
