The administration of President Joe Biden on Friday announced it would restore protections under the Endangered Species Act, a law credited with saving iconic animals like the gray wolf and bald eagle, which were loosened by his predecessor Donald Trump.

Lara Trump, wife of Eric Trump, told a crowd at the North Carolina Republican Convention that she had decided not to run for North Carolina's Senate seat in 2022, citing her love for her family. Ted Budd in the crowded Republican primary.

During his speech at the North Carolina GOP state convention, Trump said that he was giving Budd his "complete and total endorsement".

Pence was at the Capitol that day to oversee the counting of electoral votes, a normally ceremonial task that was interrupted by the Trump supporters, some of whom shouted "Hang Mike Pence", and forced lawmakers and the vice president to evacuate.

Pentagon UFO report 'doesn't rule out aliens' - although finds no evidence
The US Defence Department has long resisted releasing details about UFO sightings but will this month release a report. In 2019, the Pentagon confirmed the authenticity of the videos, which it said showed "unexplained aerial phenomena".

North Carolina, long considered a reliably Republican state, saw a hotly contested Senate race in 2020 between Sen. Tens of thousands more followed along on internet streams.

"A lot of you don't know him that well, but you're gonna know him probably within a few minutes", he said.

Out of office for more than four months and banned by the big social media platforms, the former president hopes to use such events to continue the "Make America Great Again" movement he started while in office.

The energetic 74-year-old teased the prospect of another presidential bid of his own in 2024 but vowed first to be an active presence on the campaign trail for his allies in next year's fight for control of Congress. He lost the last election by 7 million votes after alienating Republican-leaning suburban voters across the country.
