Former President Donald Trump Says He Can Declassify Top Secret Documents Just “By Thinking About It”

Donald Trump took the stage Friday for his last campaign-style rally of 2022, this time in Wilmington, North Carolina.

The former president is expected to be joined at the event by U.S. Representative Ted Budd, who is running for the U.S. Senate to take Richard Burr’s seat.

Ahead of the rally, Mr. Trump appeared to fall further into the world of QAnon after reposting a video on his own Truth Social network featuring images and slogans associated with the fringe conspiracy.

Scenes including a United States Capitol building with lightning bolts and the words “It’s going to be biblical”, as well as the phrase “prepare for the storm”, were among the images shown with the “Q” symbols. Mr. Trump has previously denied knowledge of the plot despite the fact that many of his supporters and Capitol rioters were linked to it.

In other news, Mr. Trump’s lawyers have been ordered to say one way or another if they actually believe the FBI planted incriminating evidence in the documents seized from Mr. Trump — or if the former president is simply bluffing to save face.
