Trump says he took cognitive test because people kept calling him stupid

Former president Donald Trump says he regrets endorsing Ben Sasse in the 2020 Nebraska Senate race.

“He’s bad news, Ben Sasse. He begged for my endorsement, the day after he started hitting me and we hit much harder than he knows how to hit. He’s bad news,” Mr Trump said during a rally held for Nebraska gubernatorial candidate Charles Herbster.

Meanwhile, a member of the Oath Keepers militia group has pleaded guilty to seditious conspiracy in relation to the 6 January riot – and with the plea deal sealed, it has emerged that he was present when the militia’s leader tried to contact Mr Trump after the Capitol riots had ended.

According to court documents filed in the case of William Todd Wilson, who is now co-operating with the government, leader Stewart Rhodes called “an individual” on speaker phone after leaving the Capitol grounds and implored this person “to tell President Trump to call upon groups like the Oath Keepers to forcibly oppose the transfer of power”.

However, the unidentified person on the other end of the line apparently refused to put Mr Trump on the phone.

Trump ’caused damage to national security’, says former advisor

Donald Trump’s first term resulted in damage to national security and him getting a second term could be worse, says John Bolton, former national security advisor in the Trump administration.

Mr Bolton was asked on CBS News on Thursday if the former president would be a threat to US national security if he returns to the White House, to which the former national security advisor and author said: “Yes!”

“I think he caused damage to national security, to our political institutions, to the Republican party during the first time, I think all of that damage is repairable,” Mr Bolton said.

“But if he got a second term, the damage might be irreparable,” he adds.

“Trump doesn’t think in policy terms,” the former national security advisor who described the former president as a “dangerous” person in his book, told CBS News.

“For Trump it was transactional and it was viewed from the prism of ‘How does it benefit Donald Trump’ and that’s what’s fundamentally dangerous over the long-term.”

Donald Trump’s former lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who led his court efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, has withdrawn from an interview with the congressional committee investigating the 6 January riots, according to a spokesman.

Mr Giuliani was scheduled to take part in an interview on Friday, but Committee spokesman Tim Mulvey released a statement to multiple media outlets on Thursday night saying: “Mr Giuliani had agreed to participate in a transcribed interview with the Select Committee. Today, he informed committee investigators that he wouldn’t show up unless he was permitted to record the interview, which was never an agreed-upon condition.”

Donald Trump reportedly asked his defence secretary Mark Esper about the possibility of launching missiles into Mexico to “destroy the drug labs” and demolish drug cartel, according to The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman, reporting from Mr Esper’s upcoming memoir A Sacred Oath.

“They don’t have control of their own country,” Mr Esper remembers then-president Trump saying.

“We could just shoot some Patriot missiles and take out the labs, quietly,” he reportedly said. “No one would know it was us.”

Chief Justice John Roberts calls Roe opinion leak ‘absolutely appalling’

The US Supreme Court’s Chief Justice John Roberts called the leak of a draft opinion written by conservative Justice Samule Alito in the case of Dobbs vs Jackson Women’s Health Organization “absolutely appalling” on Thursday.

This week’s reporting the expected ruling, set to overturn constitutional protections for abortion care established by Roe v Wade and Planned Parenthood v Casey, has prompted an investigation inside the court.

“If the person behind it thinks that it will affect our work, that’s just foolish,” Justice Roberts told a judicial conference in Georgia on Thursday, according to NBC News.

Here’s what you’ll find on Trump’s Truth Social

Truth Social – Trump’s platform to “stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech,” as he described it – is the most high profile among several newer platforms to launch as a direct challenge to mainstream social media platforms, viewed among right-wing figures and users as too constrictive or conspiring to remove their views after they were kicked off for flouting rules about Covid-19 misinformation, violence and harassment.

Despite billing itself as a platform for “free expression” against the alleged tyranny of companies like Twitter, Truth appears singularly devoted to the Trump universer and right-wing media ecosystem.
