Trump makes prediction on future of Mexican border wall
Donald Trump is waiting to see if his main company, the Trump Organization, will face criminal charges from New York authorities. The company is said to be under legal pressure for its handling of “fringe benefits” paid to senior executives, including some of Mr. Trump’s longest-serving allies – one of whom, Allen Weisselberg, could be charged with tax crimes as early as tomorrow.
The potential charges are part of a years-long investigation into Mr. Trump’s business relationship that saw the Manhattan district attorney convene a grand jury to assess possible cases against the former president and his associates.
Meanwhile, Mr. Trump traveled to the US-Mexico border to promote the Texas governor’s plan to continue building a border wall using state and private sector funds.
His visit comes after months of travel by Republican members of Congress, who have hammered the Biden administration over an alleged “crisis” in illegal immigration. Kamala Harris, who has been deputized by Joe Biden to work on the immigration issue, made her first visit to the border last week.

Republican who rejected bipartisan riot commission complains special committee is not bipartisan
After Republicans in Congress largely rejected a bipartisan commission to investigate the Capitol riot, U.S. Representative Michelle Fischbach claimed “Democrats refuse to form a truly bipartisan commission” – after voting against Democrats’ bipartisan attempt and Republicans.
“Give me a break,” US Democratic Representative Jim McGovern told the House of Representatives on Wednesday.
“I have noticed that there is a lack of Republicans who have the backbone to come here and explain (…) why they will not support the bipartite commission or the select committee”, he declared. “They don’t want to officially defend a position aimed at not getting the truth. “

Fox News ends Trump’s 2020 campaign rant on trip to Texas border
In the world of conservative politics, all eyes are on Texas right now, as Donald Trump continues his return tour of several states with a visit to the US-Mexico border.
But despite much hype ahead of the event, the reliably pro-Trump Fox News cut the former president’s remarks to just over a minute, as Mr. Trump began to complain about the 2020 election.
“We had an election where we did a lot better than the first time around and surprisingly we lost,” said Mr. Trump, sitting alongside Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
He continued to rage against the US election, likening it to a “banana republic,” before his audio stream was cut off and Fox hosts cut him off for comment.

Trump halting funding for Wuhan virus lab linked to dangers of taking office
One of the most difficult pretzels to unravel in the mystery of the Covid pandemic is the funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology by the National Institute of Health through the EcoHealth Alliance.
A new book “Nightmare Scenario: In The Trump Administration’s Response to the Pandemic That Changed History,” says Anthony Fauci clashed with Donald Trump over the cancellation of a $ 370,000 grant.
Fauci told Capitol Hill he didn’t know why the administration wanted to block the grant.
Well, Trump just answered.
“We pay money to China, you have seen that with the Wuhan laboratory, we give money to the Wuhan laboratory, moreover did you notice who arrested him, I have it? stopped, when I heard, ”Trump said.
“It wasn’t a virus at the time, I stopped it because I said why the hell are we giving money to China, it was very simple. “
