Trump news latest: Elon Musk says he will lift ex-president’s Twitter ban

GOP governor calls on fellow Republicans to ‘move on’ from Trump

Former secretary of defence Mark Esper is still making headlines with his new book A Sacred Oath, which recounts his experiences serving under Donald Trump. Among the claims he makes is that during the Black Lives Matter protests in the summer of 2020, Mr Trump wanted to deploy 10,000 soldiers to the streets of Washington and order them to open fire on protesters.

Discussing the book on the loyally pro-Trump Fox News network last night, Mr Esper confirmed he views Mr Trump as a threat to American democracy – asking host Brett Baier what other conclusion anyone could come to based on the events of 6 January 2021.

Meanwhile, a Republican primary in West Virginia tonight will see two incumbent GOP congressmen duke it out for a newly redrawn district – and the two have been endorsed by very different backers. While hardcore conservative Alex Mooney enjoyes the backing of Donald Trump, his rival David McKinley has the support of the state’s most senior Democrat, Joe Manchin.

‘Look at their agenda’ — Biden hits out at GOP as he talks inflation plan

President Joe Biden on Tuesday said his administration is taking action to lower energy costs and bring down inflation rates that are the highest in decades by clearing supply chain bottlenecks and reigning in corporate greed, but warned against handing the reins of power to a Republican Party more interested in protecting corporate profits than American families.

Mr Biden opened his remarks by laying out what he described as the two major causes of the inflation that has reached levels not seen since the early 1980s: The Covid-19 pandemic and Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.

The Independent’s Andrew Feinberg has the latest from the White House.
