Donald Trump spoke on Sunday at the rightwing Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Orlando, saying it "is far from being over" and teases a potential run for re-election in 2024.

"I may even decide to beat them for a third time," Trump told the crowd, after falsely claiming he won the November election and that the US has a "very sick and corrupt electoral process".

Trump also heavily criticised President Joe Biden for "the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history".

"We all knew that the Biden administration was going to be bad – but none of us imagined just how bad they would be, and how far left they would go... Joe Biden has had the most disastrous first month of any president in modern history," Trump claimed. "Biden’s radical immigration policies aren’t just illegal – they are immoral, they are heartless, and they are a betrayal of our nation’s core values."

The Milwaukee Bucks boycotted Wednesday NBA playoff game five against Orlando Magic to protest the shooting of Jacob Blake. Blake was shot seven times by a police officer in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and is paralysed.

Bucks player George Hill told The Undefeated: "We're tired of the killings and the injustice."

Some NBA players didn't want to resume the season after Minneapolis police killed George Floyd. They decided to play, but with most players kneeling during the National Anthem and wearing Black Lives Matter T-shirts during pregame warmups.
