Scott defends Trump after he is met with boos at Libertarian speech
Quick Glance: Trump Booed at Libertarian Convention
  • Trump was loudly and consistently booed during his speech at the Libertarian Party's national convention on Saturday, especially when he asked attendees to 'nominate me or at least vote for me.' Heckling began as soon as the former president took the stage, with some supporters trying to drown out the boos with chants of 'We want Trump.' Trump left the stage after 34 minutes, marking one of his shortest campaign speeches.

  • The Libertarian Party is set to choose its presidential nominee on Sunday. Trump's appearance at the Libertarian convention was unconventional for a presumptive Republican nominee but reflects his campaign's growing concern over third-party candidates. Before the speech, Secret Service agents confiscated rubber chickens distributed by a super PAC aligned with Kennedy's campaign. The scene was at times chaotic, with clashes between Trump supporters and Libertarians.

  • Trump received applause when he promised to commute the sentence of Ross Ulbricht, the creator of Silk Road. Some Libertarian delegates viewed Trump's invitation positively but expressed skepticism about his ability to sway them to vote for him. One delegate mentioned that Trump's pledge to commute Ulbricht's sentence wouldn't change his vote in November.

  • While some Libertarians saw inviting Trump to the convention as beneficial, they remained doubtful about supporting him. A delegate mentioned that Trump's commitment to commuting Ulbricht's sentence wouldn't impact his vote. Despite the mixed reactions, Trump's appearance at the convention sparked both applause and dissent among attendees.

Cruz on Haley backing Trump: ‘I understand that journey’
Quick Glance: Nikki Haley's Decision to Vote for Trump in 2024 Election
  • Former Republican presidential contender Nikki Haley announced her intention to vote for Donald Trump in the upcoming November election, despite her prolonged criticisms of her former rival.

  • There has been speculation about who will garner the support of Haley's followers in the upcoming November election rematch between Trump and Democratic President Joe Biden.

  • Despite withdrawing from the race for the Republican presidential nomination in March, Haley's name continues to appear on the ballot, garnering over 10% of the vote in state primaries, even without active campaigning.

  • Haley's unwavering stance in her criticisms of Trump positioned her as the figurehead of the diminishing anti-Trump faction within the Republican Party, even without a serious challenge for the nomination.

  • The flag revelations raise further ethics questions about the justices following disclosures last year of undisclosed luxury trips and hobnobbing with wealthy benefactors by some of them.

  • Alito, a member of the court's 6-3 conservative majority, has not responded to requests for comment so far.

Quick Glance: Possibility of Arrest Warrants for Israeli and Hamas Leaders
  • After thorough evidence collection, International Criminal Court (ICC) Chief Prosecutor Karim Khan has submitted requests for arrest warrants against top Israeli and Hamas leaders.

  • Over the next few months, a panel of judges in the ICC’s pre-trial chamber will review Khan’s request for arrest warrants, with experts expecting the indictments for the Israeli and Hamas leaders to be approved.

  • The reactions from Hamas and Israel to Khan's decision were contrasting, with Hamas rejecting the arrest warrant requests for its leaders and Israeli politicians like Netanyahu rejecting the requests.

  • Any arrest warrants could have real and symbolic consequences for the accused, including possible arrest if they travel to countries that are members of the ICC, while Israel may disregard international legal decisions.
