President Donald Trump tweeted a letter Thursday by former national security and senior officials under previous Republican administrations endorsing him for his re-election bid.

“We are former national security and senior officials who served under the administrations of Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and/or Donald Trump, or as Republican Members of Congress or Senior Congressional Staff members,” the letter reads. “We proudly endorse the re-election of Donald J. Trump.”

Their primary reasoning for the endorsement, the document states, is that “President Trump has brought a badly needed realism to American national security policy that puts the prosperity and security of the American people first.”

“President Trump has pursued a strong foreign and national security policy in America’s national interests,” it continues. It then praises him for imposing hard sanctions on North Korea, China, Iran, and Russia, for persuading NATO allies to meet their defense spending obligations, and for creating the new U.S. Space Force military branch in deterring China and Russia’s own aerospace advancements.

Throughout the 2020 election, numerous officials from former Republican administrations as well as military and intelligence officials have openly criticized Trump’s foreign policy manner and alleged disparaging statements he has made about U.S. soldiers, having reportedly called them “losers” and “suckers.” Trump, however, denies making such statements. Many of these people have endorsed Trump’s challenger, former Vice President Joe Biden, for president instead of him and have even created anti-Trump political PACs and organizations.

This joint endorsement of the president represents a significant shift away from this trend.

As the jury selection for former President Donald Trump’s hush-money trial was being finalized, Max Azzarello set himself on fire Friday afternoon outside the Manhattan courthouse. The event was caught on video by multiple media outlets, and police officers can be seen in the videos dousing Azzarello’s body with a fire extinguisher.

National Review reports on the bizarre occurrence:

Azzarello appears to be a conspiracy-minded former Democratic campaign staffer and operations manager who threw pamphlets into the air before self-immolating that directed bystanders to his Substack blog, “The Ponzi Papers.” Azzarello writes on his Substack of a supposed “totalitarian con” and identifies himself as the man who set himself on fire outside of the Trump courthouse.

Azzarello warns of what he believes to be cryptocurrency ponzi scheme being manipulated by economic elites, most notably tech billionaire Peter Thiel. He claims the government is a “secret kleptocracy” full of financial criminals and highlights The Simpsons as a tool supposedly used by elites to brainwash the American people.

His LinkedIn page features a picture of himself with former president Bill Clinton, a subject of his conspiracy theories, and lists his various marketing and operations positions in politics and tech.
