Roger Stone appears to tell Trump Gov. DeSantis is ‘a piece of s***’

Former US president Donald Trump’s new social media platform Truth Social was down for hours, hit with a series of outages on Monday.

Outages were reported from just after 7:00am EST to around 3:30pm, according to DownDetector.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump also doubled down his attack against the tax probe and referred to New York’s attorney general as “racist” in a lengthy statement urging her to focus on other crimes and desist in her office’s investigation into his company for fraud charges.

The ex-president bizarrely claimed in his statement that his real estate company had “probably done more for New York than virtually any other person or group”.

Mr Trump also released a statement on the Ukraine war on Monday, saying “it doesn’t make sense” why Moscow and Kyiv haven’t yet come to an “agreement.”

“It doesn’t make sense that Russia and Ukraine aren’t sitting down and working out some kind of an agreement,” Mr Trump said in the Monday statement. “If they don’t do it soon, there will be nothing left but death, destruction, and carnage.”

Trump says Ukraine and Russia should ‘figure out’ a solution ‘now’

Former president Donald Trump released a statement on the Ukraine war on Monday, saying “it doesn’t make sense” why Moscow and Kyiv haven’t yet come to an “agreement.”

“It doesn’t make sense that Russia and Ukraine aren’t sitting down and working out some kind of an agreement,” Mr Trump said in the Monday statement. “If they don’t do it soon, there will be nothing left but death, destruction, and carnage.”

“This is a war that never should have happened, but it did,” the former president continued. “The solution can never be as good as it would have been before the shooting started, but there is a solution, and it should be figured out now — not later — when everyone will be DEAD!”

Mr Trump had earlier praised Vladimir Putin’s move to invade Ukraine, calling it “genius”.

ICYMI:

White House press secretary Jen Psaki had harsh words for Fox News’s White House correspondent Peter Doocy last week.

Suggesting on Pod Save America that Fox News “provides” the journalist with the questions he peppers Ms Psaki with at her daily briefings, Ms Psaki explained: “He works for a network that provides people with questions that, nothing personal to any individual including Peter Doocy, but might make anyone sound like a stupid son of a b****.”

Why is the GOP so obsessed with Hunter Biden?

Donald Trump and his allies spread false claims and vicious rumours about Joe Biden’s son Hunter during the 2020 election, including attacking him for his past struggles with drug addiction.

Those attacks have not even slowed down since Joe Biden won the election, as Republicans turn away from kitchen-table issues in favour of ginning up excitement with their base with the prospect of punishing one of the GOP’s political boogeymen.

Former GOP governor deals blow to party’s efforts to win in Wisconsin

A former Republican governor of Wisconsin announced that he would not run for office again on Monday, ending speculation that he could challenge Tony Evers, the state’s Democratic incumbent governor.

Tommy Thompson’s entrance into the race would have come more than two decades since his last run for office. A crowded field of GOP candidates remain, several of whom have echoed Donald Trump’s false claims about the 2020 election.

ICYMI: Trump’s scandal-plagued EPA head is running for Senate

Trump ally Marjorie Taylor Greene sees fundraising lag

An ally of Donald Trump is seeing her fundraising lag as she campaigns for reelection in Georgia.

Marjorie Taylor Greene, a top promoter of Mr Trump’s conspiracies in the House, oversaw a campaign that spent more than $300,000 more in the first quarter of 2022 than it raised. She faces several GOP primary challengers in her deep-red district, and polls showed her tied with one of her challengers in January.
