‘I’m a more honest man than you’: Trump storms out of Piers Morgan interview
Donald Trump has been found in contempt of proceedings brought against him by New York Attorney General Letitia James, who is investigating allegations of fraud in the Trump Organization’s real estate dealings.
The ex-president and his associates have so far refused to comply with Ms James’s demands for documents, leading a judge to impose a $ 10,000 daily fine until the records are turned over.
Meanwhile, Mr Trump’s much-trailed interview with Piers Morgan has begun with the former president insisting he deterred an invasion of Ukraine during his administration by threatening Vladimir Putin “like he’s never been threatened before”.
In advance of their conversation’s screening, Mr Morgan described Mr Trump as “pathological” in his fixation on the alleged theft of the 2020 election, a conspiracy theory for which the journalist insisted there is no evidence.
In the interview, Mr Trump takes aim at Meghan Markle and alleges that she is leading Harry “by the nose” while asserting that the Queen should strip the couple of all royal titles.
What we learned from Piers Morgan’s interview with Trump
Ukraine, nuclear weapons and election “delusions”, writes The Independent’s Andrew Feinberg.
For nearly an hour, the two men – who first met when Morgan was a contestant on Mr Trump’s television show The Celebrity Apprentice – held forth on a variety of topics, including the war in Ukraine, Mr Trump’s relationship with former German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and why UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson intervened to block a previously scheduled conversation between them.

Trump comments on Musk Twitter takeover:
Donald Trump claims he won’t return to Twitter even if his account is reinstated following Elon Musk’s takeover.
“I’m not going on Twitter, I’m going to stay on TRUTH,” Trump told Fox News. “I hope Elon buys Twitter because he’ll make improvements to it and he’s a good man, but I’m going to be staying on TRUTH.”
Trump said he added that he would begin “TRUTHing” over the next week, and remain there regardless of his follower count on Twitter.
“The bottom line is, no, I’m not going back to Twitter,” he said, adding: “We’re taking in millions of people, and what we’re finding is that the response on TRUTH is much better than being on Twitter ”.
