  • May 19
  • May 20 – James Jamal Curry, 31, who spat and coughed on a police officer in Miami, Florida, after claiming to have COVID-19, is indicted for committing a biological weapon hoax (terrorism).[185]

    • COVID-19 pandemic: The official death toll passes 100,000 – more Americans than were killed in the Vietnam and Korean wars combined, and approaching that of the First World War, when more than 116,000 Americans died in combat.[189] The total number of cases continues to rise, although the rate is slowing.[190]

  • May 29
    • Twitter hides a tweet by President Trump, after he reacts to the Minneapolis riots by promising to "send in the National Guard", and follows it with a warning that "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." Twitter says the post violates its rules about glorifying violence, but rather than being deleted, "it may be in the public's interest for the Tweet to remain accessible," so the tweet can be viewed by clicking past the warning.[196]
    • 46-year-old police officer Derek Chauvin is charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.[197]

    • The first crewed flight of the Dragon 2 (initially scheduled for May 27th but delayed due to weather) is launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, the first crewed spacecraft to take off from U.S. soil since 2011.[200]
    • Curfews are declared in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Atlanta as large crowds of demonstrators continue to gather.[201]
  • May 31 – In response to riots across the country, as a result of the murder of George Floyd, President Trump designates the far-left activist group Antifa a terrorist organization. This comes after speculation that the riots were orchestrated by white supremacists or anarchists.[202][203]
