Breaking Trump News Today: Ex-pres says Musk won’t buy Twitter at ‘ridiculous price’ as Pence backs Gov Kemp

Biden taunts Trump as “the great MAGA king” in economics speech.

As Donald Trump’s nominee David Perdue struggles to gain momentum in Georgia’s gubernatorial primary, Mike Pence has announced he will be visiting the state to seek the vote for incumbent Brian Kemp — a Republican who refused to meet Mr. Bending Trump’s insistence that the state was stolen by Joe Biden in 2020.

Meanwhile, the special committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol has issued subpoenas to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and four other GOP lawmakers who are close allies of Donald Trump: the House of Representatives Jim Jordan from Ohio, Scott Perry from Pennsylvania and Andy Biggs from Arizona and Mo Brooks from Alabama. Everyone was given the opportunity to testify voluntarily.

And the Justice Department is now investigating whether former President Trump or one of his associates violated federal law by mishandling classified documents that ended up in Mar-a-Lago instead of the national archives at the end of his term.

On Friday, the former president shared some thoughts on Elon Musk’s plan to buy Twitter, saying the billionaire wouldn’t pay a “ridiculous price” for the platform as it mostly deals with “BOTS or spam accounts.”
