In 2020 the United Methodist Church split over acceptance of gay marriage. President Trump approved a drone strike that killed Qasem Soleimani and Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis at Baghdad International Airport. Massive bushfires spread across Australia.

Notable deaths in 2020 included actors Robert Conrad and Kirk Douglas; basketball star Kobe Bryant; journalist Jim Lehrer; writers Roger Kahn, Charles Portis, and Elizabeth Wurtzel; Monty Python founder Terry Jones; musicians Neil Peart and Joseph Shabalala; and former NBA commissioner David Stern.
