Donald Trump says he might run for White House again but rules out forming new political party

Former US president, Donald Trump was back in action in Florida on Sunday night, February 28 at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), his first public address since leaving office in January 20.

U.S Supreme Court Allows The Release Of Trump’s Tax Returns

Donald Trump suffered a major setback on Monday in his long quest to conceal details of his finances as the U.S. Supreme Court paved the way for a New York City prosecutor to obtain the former president’s tax returns and other financial records as part of a criminal investigation. The justices without comment rebuffed Trump’s request to put on hold an Oct. 7 lower court ruling directing the Republican businessman-turned-politician’s longtime accounting firm, Mazars USA, to comply with a subpoena to turn over the materials to a grand jury convened by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, a Democrat. “The work continues,” Vance said in a statement issued after the court’s action.

Bill Gates says Trump should be allowed back on social media ‘at some point’

Billionaire Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates has stated that former U.S. president, Donald Trump should eventually have his social media accounts re-activated.

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to place a travel ban on US President Donald Trump over his role in the Capitol building riot. In a statement on Monday, MURIC director Ishaq Akintola said Trump “stained” America’s reputation as a great democracy by his acts. The group also berated Buhari for being silent on the Capitol riot, noting the US government might have imposed sanctions if such happened in Nigeria. “MURIC calls on the Federal Government to speak up on the American debacle. America’s condemnation of African and other third world countries has been deafening enough to attract a tornado of backlashes at this moment,” Igbere TV reports that the statement read. “We are not happy that FG has remained silent. China, Turkey, and Iran h...

Ivanka Trump Plans To Attend Biden’s Inauguration Against Her Father’s Wishes

Ivanka Trump is reportedly planning to attend Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20 against the wishes of her father, Donald Trump. Donald Trump made it clear on Twitter that he won't be present at his successor's inauguration. However, Ivanka is choosing to go, much to her father's chagrin, as she is scrambling to save her aspiring political career. "Ivanka is worried that her promising political career is in jeopardy and she's doing whatever she can to save her reputation," a White House insider told DailyMail. However, Trump is against her decision. "He said it's an insult that she would even want to engage with the crooks that are trying to bring him down," said the insider, adding that Trump said the family must stand together and put on a united front. "The pre...

Patriots coach Belichick refuses Medal of Freedom from Trump

  New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Monday he would not accept the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Donald Trump as planned this week after the "tragic" riot at the US Capitol last Wednesday. Belichick, who has guided the Patriots to six Super Bowl titles, said in a written statement that he was "flattered" to be considered for the highest civilian honor in the United States but had decided against accepting. "Recently, I was offered the opportunity to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which I was flattered by out of respect for what the honor represents and admiration for prior recipients," Belichick said in the statement. "Subsequently, the tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award." R...

Melania Trump breaks silence on Congress invasion

First Lady Melania Trump broke her silence on Monday regarding last week's invasion of Congress by her husband's supporters, complaining that she has been unfairly treated. The first lady's absence has drawn attention in the wake of the national crisis that erupted on Wednesday when President Donald Trump encouraged a large crowd of angry followers to march on Congress. The mob broke into the Capitol, ransacking offices and fighting with police. Melania Trump's first comments on the ugly scenes arrived in a typo-strewn statement on the White House website where she described herself as "disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week." But her disappointment apparently was as much to do with her own treatment as over the unprecedented assault on the home of US democr...

Germany’s Merkel: Trump’s Twitter Eviction ‘Problematic’

German Chancellor Angela Merkel considers U.S. President Donald Trump's eviction from Twitter by the company “problematic,” her spokesman said Monday. Twitter permanently suspended Trump from the microblogging platform on Friday, citing a “risk of further incitement of violence” in the wake of the storming of the U.S. Capitol by supporters of the outgoing president. Asked about Twitter's decision, Merkel's spokesman, Steffen Seibert said the operators of social media platforms “bear great responsibility for political communication not being poisoned by hatred, by lies and by incitement to violence.” “The fundamental right to freedom of opinion is a fundamental right of elementary importance, and this fundamental right can be interfered with, but through the law and within the fr...

There’s No Difference Between Oshiomhole And Donald Trump – Idahosa

Trump Tweeted Through POTUS, Twitter Deleted Them Immediately

For a brief moment, he managed to tweet anyhow — not from @realDonaldTrump, his suspended account, but rather the official @POTUS account reserved for the current President of the United States, one that will be handed over to Joe Biden on January 20th. His message, before it was deleted, cryptically suggested that he will “have a big announcement soon” and that he was looking “at the possibilities of building out our own platform.” Trump is currently deplatformed from most social media. As I have been saying for a long time, Twitter has gone further and further in banning free speech, and tonight, Twitter employees have coordinated with the Democrats and the Radical Left in removing my account from their platform, to silence me — and YOU, the 75,000,000 great... ...patriots w...

Twitter Permanently Suspends Donald Trump

After years of using Twitter as a legislation tool, sounding board and occasional diary, President Donald Trump was permanently banned from the platform on Friday. Less than two weeks before the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, the social media company removed the commander in chief after rioters overtook the Capitol on Wednesday, leading to the deaths of at least five people. In a blog post about the permanent suspension, Twitter said they did so “due to the risk of further incitement of violence.” “In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action. Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and w...
