Eric Trump claims Putin could tell Donald Trump was ‘a very strong person’
Former president Donald Trump has promised to return to the White House at the “American Freedom Tour” in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
“With the support of everyone in this room, we will take back the House, we will take back the Senate and we will take back our country,” he said.
Mr Trump added: “And then most importantly in 2024, we are going to take back our beautiful White House”.
He has continued to drop hints about his 2024 presidential run but has not announced any formal plans so far.
Following his remarks, Congresswoman Liz Cheney on Sunday warned that Mr Trump could face criminal penalties over the 6 January riots at Capitol Hill.
The Republican leader told NBC’s Meet the Press that the House investigating committee is considering whether to recommend criminal punishment for the “kind of supreme dereliction of duty that you saw with President Trump”.

Pence distances himself from Trump
Mike Pence, the former president’s benevolent sidekick, is beginning to distance himself from Donald Trump as he takes increasingly overt steps toward a White House bid of his own.
Pence, a former congressman and Indiana governor, is working to craft a political identity independent of his former boss.
Last month, he called out Mr Trump by name, saying his former boss was “wrong” to insist that he had the power to unilaterally overturn the results of the 2020 election.
Although the Republican party remains largely dominated by the former president, Mr Pence, if becomes successful in navigating this moment, it could offer a model for Republicans to benefit from their work with Mr Trump without being tied to his most toxic behaviour, Associated Press reported.

Conspiracy theorists believe Trump is purposely pronouncing China wrong
QAnon conspiracy theorists believe that former president Donald Trump’s past mispronunciation of the word China as “Chy-na” is actually a secret code word meaning Ukraine.
According to the theory, a QAnon believer claims they “discovered” that there is a place in Ukraine named “Chy-na,” and believes Mr Trump was secretly referring to this location when he used the term “China virus”.

Congresswoman Liz Cheney has said there could be criminal penalties for former president Donald Trump over the 6 January riots at Capitol Hill.
“I can tell you I have not learned a single thing since I have been on this committee that has made me less concerned or less worried about the gravity of the situation and the actions that President Trump took and also refused to take while the attack was underway,” Rep Cheney, who is vice-chair of the committee, said.
