Trump under fire for QAnon Ohio rally as popularity hits new low in poll

Trump claims his supporters are imprisoned for refusing to say bad things about him

Donald Trump berated FBI agents for allegedly walking on his bedroom carpet in Mar-a-Lago with their shoes on last month as he returned to his South Florida estate.

The former president also attacked the federal office for leaving the scene in a way that meant his Florida home “will never be the same,” as Axios revealed why his attorneys called Raymond Dearie, a rumored FBI “skeptic,” special master in the case brought against him by the Ministry of Justice.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden, who attended Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral in London on Monday, said over the weekend that the FBI’s discovery of top-secret documents at Mar-a-Lago in August raised concerns that sensitive data was being compromised by the FBI. Mr Trump identified hundreds of documents and called it “irresponsible”.

Meanwhile, Trump took to the rally stage in Ohio this weekend, claiming he invented the word “caravans” to describe groups of migrants, calling them “murderers and rapists” in a rally speech that came under fire for its apparent association with QAnon.

Arizona GOP returns to far-right roots

The simmering discontent among some of the Republicans in Arizona over John McCain’s famous penchant for rejecting his party boiled over in the winter of 2014 with the disapproval of the longtime US senator.

McCain’s allies responded with a sweeping push to reassert control of the Arizona Republican Party. Censorship supporters were ousted or reduced, and McCain defeated his far-right challenger in a blowout in the 2016 primaries.

Less than a decade later, the right-wing forces that marginalized McCain within Arizona’s GOP are now in full control, profoundly affecting one of the nation’s most closely related battlefields. Republicans in Arizona have traded McCain for Donald Trump.

From Truman to Biden: The Queen’s Relationship With Every US President

During her 70 years as monarch, Queen Elizabeth II met with every sitting US president, with the notable exception of President Lyndon Johnson.

Against the backdrop of the Cold War, the economic crises, societal changes, scientific breakthroughs and military campaigns that shaped the bond between the US and the UK, the Queen has been a constant and friendly soft power figure who has been an important part of the special relationship.

Here are some of the notable moments from her meetings with US presidents.
