Trump teases 2024 run in CPAC remarks, as he looks to keep his grip on GOP
Donald Trump still has grievances to air — and a Republican Party eager to bask in his indignation. In his first major address since leaving office, Trump on Sunday laced into his Democratic successor, Joe Biden, chided “establishment political hacks” from his own party and pressed his false claim that he won the November election, which he lost decisively. And to an explosion of applause, he suggested he may run again in 2024. “Who kn ...

Trump's 'big lie' has become the GOP's newest voter suppression weapon
If there’s one thing the GOP hates, it’s “cancel culture.” Republicans have cited their opposition to cancel culture to justify their defense of just about everything, from refusing to rename military bases and monuments that bear the names of Confederate generals to defending former President Donald Trump during his recent impeachment trial, which they dubbed “constitutional cancel culture.” Their distaste for the phenomenon is the theme of this ...

Texas and California may be worlds apart in their politics and climate policies, but they have something in common: Extreme weather crashed their power grids and left people stranded in the dark. The two sprawling, politically potent states have devoted massive sums to their power networks over the past two decades — California to produce huge amounts of wind and solar energy, Texas to create an efficient, go-it-alone electricity market built ...

Former President Donald Trump issued a caustic and highly personal statement against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday, effectively declaring war on the Kentucky Republican for failing to back his attempts to undermine the 2020 election. “Mitch is a dour, sullen, and unsmiling political hack, and if Republican Senators are going to stay with him, they will not win again,” Trump said in the statement released by his PAC.

Trump impeachment trial confronts memories of Capitol siege
WASHINGTON (AP) — The impeachment trial of Donald Trump is more than an effort to convict the former president of inciting an insurrection. It’s a chance for a public accounting and remembrance of the worst attack on the U.S. Capitol in 200 years. In the month since the Jan. 6 siege by a pro-Trump mob, encouraged by his call to “fight like hell” to overturn the election, defenders of the former president say it’s time to move on.
