2-22-2021 | Trump wanted Kim Jong-un to get home by plane
Blog News today- Former United States President Donald Trump has offered to fly North Korean leader Kim Jong-un home on his own plane. Trump had two meetings with Kim Jong-un.
Matthew Pottinger, the US National Security Adviser, told the BBC in an interview.
There was a lot of talk about such a meeting between the top leaders of North Korea and the US President. According to US media reports, Donald Trump considered him a friend in the international arena.
The ongoing conflict with the United States over North Korea’s nuclear weapons test has not ended. No positive change has been seen in the relations between the two countries. In 2019, a meeting was held between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un in Hanoi, Vietnam.
Kim Jong-un attended the meeting by train from North Korea. At the end of the meeting, the US President offered to take the North Korean leader home with Air Force One. At that time, Un did not agree to the offer of returning home on the plane of the US President’s official visit.

2-22-2021 | If Trump forms a new party, the Republican Party will be empty: poll
Blog News today- If former US President Donald Trump forms a new political party, half of the people in the Republican Party will leave their current party. Forty-six percent of Republicans will leave the party and join the Trump-led party.
According to a poll conducted by Suffolk University in the United States, only 27 percent of Republicans say they will stay in the party.
Opinion polls released on February 21 show that the current Republican Party is unable to contain the awakened conservatism in the United States.
Conservative people are now finding their confidence in Trump, a white-majority political party. Looking at the map of the United States, it is easy to guess that the intensity of conservatism is higher in the south. The Republican Party has to continue its journey to the South for its own existence.
In the November presidential election, Trump won many votes in the southern states. Somewhere the turnout has surpassed all past records.
Republicans say the party has failed to fight hard for them, according to news reports following the poll. Many Republicans believe that Trump has fought hard for US conservatism.
Trump party future

Trump has not yet revealed his political future plans. On January 20, the day he left power, he said he would meet again soon. Meanwhile his supporters began to campaign, Trump himself would form a separate party.
However, Trump’s political adviser Jason Miller said no decision had been made or that Trump was not taking any action right now. Miller noted that Trump is pushing for a Republican majority in Congress in the upcoming midterm elections.
After his acquittal in the Senate, Trump said his “Make America Great” movement would be intensified.
10 Republicans in Congress and 7 in the Senate voted against Trump. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell spoke out against Trump but did not vote against. Senator Mitch McConnell was outraged when he said that Trump had a moral responsibility for the January 6 attack on Capitol Hill.
Trump has said the Republican Party will never win unless it avoids the company of leaders like Mitch McConnell.
Trump has said he will stand up for candidates who support his “Make America Great” movement in the upcoming midterm elections.
Though Trump is still under pressure for various reasons. He is waiting to see how far the legal issues will go against him.
Trump is expected to try to bring the Republican Party under his control. If he fails to do so, he will build a separate political platform. Both prospects are strong for Trump, according to various US media reports.
