‘The next President of the United States’ – Trump speaks out after arraignment



The President was introduced to the crowd – and the world – with the song blaring at his Mar-a-Lago residence

“The next President of the United States” – that’s how Donald Trump was introduced to speak at his Mar-a-Lago home in Florida.

Trump spoke following his arraignment in New York City.

Here’s a recap of the events of today: Donald Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 felony criminal charges during a court hearing in Manhattan.

Trump is accused of falsifying records to hide damaging information during the 2016 election.

The charges relate to hush money paid to porn star Stormy Daniels, with Daniels claiming she had an affair with Trump.

Judge Juan Merchan did not issue a gag order on Trump, but has asked both sides to be mindful of their language.

The former president emerged to a crowd of supporters accompanied by the song “Proud to be an American.”

In his first public remarks since being charged with the felony counts, Trump denied committing a crime.

He labelled the charges as just “another partisan attack” on his legacy, as he listed the many previous political and legal accusations he has faced off against.

The former president says he “never thought anything like this could happen in America.”

Referencing the 2020 election result, he mentioned President Joe Biden and claimed the U.S. is “going to hell” – to which the audience applauded.

He attacked Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, Bragg’s family and the judge assigned to the case – to which he called a “Trump-hating judge with a Trump-hating wife and family”.

Is President Biden securing a ‘made in America’ supply chain for critical minerals?



Rare earths elements are responsible for some of the most important materials involved in electric vehicle production, battery making, renewable energy systems and technology manufacturing.

Last year, President Joe Biden said he wanted to make rare earths an important domestic policy initiative and he signed an executive order to review gaps in the domestic supply chains for rare earths, medical devices, chips, and other key resources.

The Department of Energy announced a $30 million initiative to tap into researching and securing the U.S. domestic supply chain for rare earths and other important minerals in battery-making production.

But at the same time, President Biden also blocked the mining of rare earth minerals on more than 225,000 acres of federal land for more than 20 years.

Is it possible for the U.S. to change course and again have a seat at the table in producing rare earths elements?

Is the West too reliant on Chinese rare earth exports?



Rare earths elements are needed to make iPhones, advanced batteries, military night-vision goggles and MRI machines. According to the U.S. Genealogical Survey, China was responsible for 80% of rare earths imports in 2019.

Critical earth minerals are a necessity for humans around the world.

They are essential to our modern-day lifestyles and critical in the creation of things such as iPhones, electric vehicles, and advanced precision weapons.

While the United States is dependent on other countries for many minerals, there is no country that America is more dependent on than China. And all these minerals come at a price.

Rare earths elements are needed to make everything from the technology we use every day like smart refrigerators and advanced batteries to night-vision goggles used by the military to MRI machines which are crucial to the medical field.

Many in the government, business, and science sectors have long raised concerns about how to ensure the West’s continued supply of these critical earth minerals.

The United States was once a dominant player in the rare earths supply chain, but for decades, that global market has been dominated by China.

According to the U.S. Genealogical Survey, China was responsible for 80% of rare earths imports in 2019.

Last year, the Biden administration even touted a new plan for the United States to rival China and end their decades-long dominance of rare earth metals market.

So, how reliant is the West on Chinese rare earth exports?

Moscow says sending F-16 jets to Ukraine is a “colossal risk”



As Ukraine braces a summer of violence, Kyiv is pleading for more air support from NATO

U.S. President Joe Biden recently granted his backing for Kyiv’s pilots to be trained on F-16 fighter jets.

These jets can be used in a variety of combat scenarios, including air-to-air or gound-attacks.

In fact, the U.S. Air Force has described these jets as a “relatively low-cost, high-performance weapon system.

Thousands of F-16s have been sent around the world. However, Kyiv has been requesting for this support for months.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky believes there is “substantial progress” in convincing western allies to equip Kyiv with fighter jets.

Zelensky said the jets are a “key component” of gaining an advantage over Russian forces.
