Donald Trump concluded a rally in 110 degree Fahrenheit heat in Las Vegas on Sunday, just a day before he is scheduled to attend a virtual interview with probation officers ahead of his hush money trial defense team’s sentencing recommendation.

He started the rally by complaining about Joe Biden’s immigration policies, calling a recent move by Biden to halt asylum entries as “bulls***” and insisting that the president is not “old” but “incompetent.” He also hit his usual notes, telling voters they needed to “stop the steal” and railing against the press.

Meanwhile, the judge presiding over Trump’s hush money trial has alerted prosecutors and defense counsel about a Facebook comment from an apparent social media troll announcing a conviction one day before a jury handed down a guilty verdict. The comment has since been deleted.

This week Trump also took part in a wild interview with TV psychologist Dr Phil in which the Republican presidential candidate proclaimed that “sometimes revenge can be justified” as he looked ahead to a theoretical second term in the White House.

Dr Phil largely adhered to Trump’s conspiracy-laden point-of-view allowing false claims to pass unchecked, particularly regarding his recent conviction.

Donald Trump ends his speech warning that the world is closer to World War III “than ever before”

Donald Trump ended his Las Vegas rally by warning the crowd that the world was closer to “World War III” than “ever before,” and said it would not be “World War II tanks and planes” fighting, but nuclear weapons being exchanged.

He also said the weapons possessed “never before seen” levels of power, apparently forgetting that the US dropped nuclear weapons on Japan at the end of World War II in 1945.

After his grave warning he thanked all the “celebrities” — Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, essentially — who attended his rally.
