Trump intends to return to politics again

Donald Trump intends to take revenge on those political forces that supported his impeachment.

Former US President Donald Trump plans to resume his participation in the country’s political life and start talking to journalists again. On Monday, February 15, the Associated Press reports.

According to the agency, “Trump’s unstoppable friends and allies expect him to resume friendly media interviews after weeks of silence.”

It is noted that the ex-president “is fixated on revenge on the Republicans who supported his impeachment or resisted his efforts to cancel the results of the November elections,” but still aims to help the Republican Party take control of the House of Representatives and the Senate in the 2022 midterm elections.

“I believe that in the coming days, you are likely to hear from him a lot more,” — quoted the agency senior adviser to Trump Jason Miller.

Recall that the US Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump in the process, which was associated with the riots in the Capitol on January 6 this year.

U.S. Senate acquits Trump in the impeachment case

The US Senate acquitted former President Donald Trump of the impeachment case. The meeting is broadcast on the website of the upper house of the Congress.

During the vote, 53 senators voted for impeachment, while 47 voted against it. At the same time, the support of two-thirds of the Senate was required to introduce a conviction.

On November 3, the US held a presidential election, which was won by Democrat Joe Biden. His predecessor, Donald Trump, did not recognize the election results and challenged them in courts.

On January 6, Trump supporters stormed the US Congress building, interrupting a meeting at which parliament was supposed to approve the election results.

On January 13, the US House of Representatives voted to pass a resolution of impeachment. The US Senate recognized the process as constitutional.

The media learned about the concealment of data on the severity of the coronavirus in Trump

After being diagnosed with the coronavirus, Donald Trump stayed in the hospital for only three days.

After Trump fell ill with a coronavirus infection, doctors allowed the possibility of connecting the head of the White House to a ventilator at that time, but the president’s entourage “downplayed the seriousness of the situation.” This was reported on Thursday, February 11, by The New York Times, citing sources.

“In October last year, the US authorities did not disclose information about how difficult the coronavirus disease is for Donald Trump, who at that time was the president of the country,” the newspaper writes.

According to the newspaper’s interlocutors, Trump’s condition was worse “than publicly acknowledged.” The oxygen content in his blood was low, so experts feared that he would have to be connected to artificial lung ventilation. The president also had symptoms associated with coronavirus-induced pneumonia, including signs of “lung infiltration.”

Trump’s condition caused doctors “extreme concern,” but Trump’s entourage tried to “downplay the severity of the situation,” indicating that the president is on the mend, writes the NYT. According to her, due to concerns about the condition of the republican, doctors used the drug Regeneron for his treatment, although it was not fully approved at that time.

Trump announced the coronavirus infection on October 2. Later that day, he arrived at the Walter Reed Medical Center. The attending physician of the head of state, Sean Conley, said that Trump is in good health, he does not experience problems with breathing. Trump himself said three days later that he felt well and was leaving the medical facility.

Biden ordered to deprive Trump of access to classified information

US President Joe Biden said in an interview with CBS that former head of state Donald Trump does not need to disclose classified information.

He believes that there is no need for Trump to hold secret briefings.

“What is the value of holding secret briefings for him? What effect will it have, unless he lets it slip and says something?» Biden said.

The head of the White House pointed to the “unbalanced” behavior of his predecessor.

Former US presidents can be informed of classified information by the decision of the current head of state.

The Pentagon will review the location of US forces in the world

The Pentagon will analyze the location of the US military around the world, said the new Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.

His statement was published on the Pentagon’s website.

“The report will contain my advice to the Commander-in-Chief on how best to allocate the armed forces in accordance with the national interest,” Austin said.

At the same time, the minister added that when conducting the analysis, the Pentagon will consult with US allies and partners. The statement did not specify any specific possible changes in the distribution of American forces.

Recently, it became known that the United States is freezing the project of relocating its military in Germany.
