Quick Glance: Trump discusses suicide, sharks, and Jan. 6 'warriors' in Las Vegas
  • Former President Trump told a massive crowd of followers they would be better off killing themselves than voting for Biden in the November election and pondered a shark attack in a perplexing weekend speech in the scorching heat of Las Vegas.

  • Despite his advisers' advice to focus on effective attack lines at the border and on inflation, Trump once again praised the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol as a legitimate protest against what he calls a 'rigged election' that Biden won.

  • Trump is looking to flip Nevada and neighboring Arizona back into his camp after Biden narrowly won both states in 2020, on his way to a relatively solid Electoral College victory.

  • Despite Trump's puzzling rhetoric, the presidential race remains virtually tied nationally, with Trump holding a slim lead among all registered voters, while Biden narrowly leads among those likely to vote in November.

Quick Glance: Georgia Appeals Court Delays Trump's Election Interference Case Until at Least October
  • A Georgia appeals court officially postponed the racketeering case alleging Donald Trump conspired to illegally overturn the 2020 election results until at least October.

  • Proceeding to trial before the November elections became impossible as the appeals court decided to halt the case, leaving insufficient time for a trial before November.

  • The judge presiding over the case, Scott McAfee, had not set a trial date and was unlikely to do so while Trump and the others appealed his ruling allowing Willis to remain on the case.

  • In Florida, Judge Aileen Cannon delayed a hearing and scheduled a multi-day hearing to address Trump's claim of improper appointment of special counsel Jack Smith in the case.

Quick Glance: Trump receives historic verdict in bribery case
  • In a groundbreaking ruling, Donald Trump became the first former US president to be criminally convicted. The New York jury found him guilty of falsifying business records to manipulate the election.

  • The impending sentencing of Trump on July 11 - just before the start of the Republican National Convention on July 15, where he is set to be nominated as a presidential candidate - is causing uncertainty ahead of the November 5 elections.

  • Following the guilty verdict, Trump was escorted in a convoy of black jeeps to have dinner in New York City. Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer, emphasized the importance of accountability and the rule of law post-verdict.

  • Trump's conviction was rooted in a conspiracy to cover up 'hush money' payments and conceal a negative story that could have affected his election prospects. It constituted 'a planned, coordinated, long-running conspiracy to influence the 2016 election'.
