Republican candidate for the White House back on the campaign trail after being convicted on all counts at his recent New York hush money trial

Donald Trump has issued another plea for absolute presidential immunity to shield him from prosecution over acts carried out during his presidency, with the US Supreme Court set to issue a momentous ruling on the matter before the end of June.

The appeal was just one of a number of bizarre posts on his Truth Social platform over the weekend, with the Republican presidential contender also lashing out at President Joe Biden, first lady Jill Biden, The Washington Post, Illinois governor JB Pritzker and even Pope Francis.

Trump was in Detroit, Michigan, on Saturday where he used a rally appearance to complain about American support for Ukraine in its ongoing war with Russia and describe the country's president, Volodymyr Zelensky, as "the greatest salesman of all time."

The former president dismissed the $50bn aid package recently approved by the Biden administration for Ukraine, griping: "It never ends."

He also suggested that President Biden "should have to take a cognitive test", only to then immediately forget who had administered his own psychological exam, referring to Texas Republican representative Ronny Jackson, who was White House physician during his presidency, as "Ronny Johnson".

Trump and his allies seize on every possible opportunity to claim Biden is too old and infirm to be president (see their antics regarding his appearance in Italy last week).

Trump attacks Zelensky, forgets his doctor's name and raves about tank batteries


After his brief soujourn to church, Trump addressed another Turning Point USA event in the Motor City on Saturday, following his recent speech to Charlie Kirk's Las Vegas chapter.

He complained about American support for Ukraine in its ongoing war with Russia and described the country's president, Volodymyr Zelensky, as "the greatest salesman of all time."

The former president dismissed the $50bn aid package recently approved by the Biden administration for Ukraine, griping: "It never ends."

He also suggested that President Biden "should have to take a cognitive test", only to then immediately forget who had administered his own psychological exam, referring to Texas Republican representative Ronny Jackson, who was White House physician during his presidency, as "Ronny Johnson" (a confusion with Wisconsin senator Ron Johnson?).

Best of all was this bizarre sequel to his electric boats/shark attacks bit, now taking on a military tone.
