Trump to rally in Wisconsin after calling Milwaukee ‘horrible’: Live updates

Donald Trump will stage his latest campaign rally in Racine, Wisconsin, on Tuesday, less than a week after he reportedly dismissed Milwaukee as “horrible” in conversation with congressional Republicans and a month before the city hosts the Republican National Convention at which he will formally be offered the GOP 2024 nomination.

Meanwhile, a new poll conducted by Ipsos shows a decrease in trust in the American legal system among Republican voters since the verdict was handed down in the presidential contender’s hush money trial last month.

A sizable number of US citizens, including independents, questioned whether the outcome was the result of a fair and impartial process.

However, most respondents rejected the idea that the prosecution was brought by Manhattan’s district attorney Alvin Bragg to help President Joe Biden by smearing his opponent and keeping him cooped up in court and away from the campaign trail.

Most significantly, one in five Americans said they were less likely to support Trump for president in November as a result of the verdict.

After some initial caution, the president has finally begun to use the outcome to his advantage, attacking Trump as a “convicted criminal” in a new $50m attack ad.


Ellis and Epshteyn please not guilty in Arizona 2020 election case

They are charged with forgery, fraud, and conspiracy charges in the state based on their Alleged efforts relating to attempts to overthrow the 2020 election results.

Epshteyn was an attorney and adviser to the 2016 and 2020 Trump campaigns. He recently appeared with Trump at his New York hush money trial.

Lamon was one of the then-president’s potential electors leading into the 2020 election.

According to the charging documents, one month after the 2020 election, 11 Trump supporters convened at the Arizona GOP’s headquarters in Phoenix to sign a certificate claiming to be the state’s 11 electors to the Electoral College.

However, Joe Biden won the state by 10,457 votes and state officials certified his electors.

“The House disagrees with the assertions in the letter from the Department of Justice, and as Speaker, I will be certifying the contempt reports to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.

New York’s highest court rejects Trump’s gag order appeal

The gag order was imposed to protect the jury, court staff, witnesses and their families from being attacked by Trump during the trial.

Justices at the State of New York Court of Appeals wrote: “Appeal dismissed without costs, by the Court sua sponte, upon the ground that no substantial constitutional question is directly involved.”

Separately from this, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office is expected to respond at some point this week to Trump’s latest attempt to lift the gag order, post-conviction.
