Ryan first made the comments to a home-town paper, telling the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "He's the nominee. I'll do whatever he wants with respect to the convention." The two are set to meet Thursday in Washington, after Ryan told CNN last week he was "just not ready" to throw support behind Trump, after rivals Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich both suspended their campaigns making Trump the presumptive Republican nominee. Ryan first made the comments to a home-town paper, telling the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “He’s the nominee. I’ll do whatever he wants with respect to the convention.” The two are set to meet Thursday in Washington, after Ryan told CNN last week he was “just not ready” to throw support behind Trump, after rivals Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich both suspended their campaigns making Trump the presumptive Republican nominee. Trump said the speaker’s comments “blindsided” him. One of Trump's highest profile surrogates, Sarah Palin, announced on Sunday that she would back Ryan's primary challenger in Wisconsin."I think Paul Ryan is soon to be 'Cantored,' as in Eric Cantor," Palin said, referring to the former Republican House majority leader who was ousted in a shocking upset in his 2014 Virginia primary race.Asked about Palin's comments on CNN, Trump called Palin "very much a free agent" and said he wasn't aware of her plans to back Ryan's opponent.

​Just days after promising to provide tanks, the German Chancellor has ruled out sending fighter jets to Ukraine. Olaf Scholz cautioned against a bidding war for guns in an interview with German media. To improve their capabilities, Ukraine has asked its allies to form a "fighter jet coalition." Last week the US stated that it would "very carefully" consider the notion of providing jets for Kyiv. Mr. Scholz stated in an interview with Tagesspiegel that the delivery of Leopard 2 tanks produced in Germany was his primary concern. "It just seems silly," he remarked, "that we've just just decided [on sending tanks] and the next argument is shooting up in Germany." After weeks of pressure from friends, Germany agreed last week to give Ukraine 14 of its Leopard 2 tanks. Following Germany's pledge to supply the tanks, the US declared that it would send Ukraine its M1 Abrams combat vehicles. Andrii Melnyk, the deputy foreign minister of Ukraine, has asked for the formation of a "fighter jet coalition" that would supply it with US F-16 and F-35 fighter jets, Eurofighters, Tornados, French Rafales, and Swedish Gripen jets, in addition to Eurofighters and Tornados. Mykhailo Podolyak, a presidential advisor for Ukraine, told Ukraine's Freedom Television Network that missiles were also required "to significantly limit the Russian army's main armament." And Ukraine's president, Volodymyr Zelensky, reaffirmed it in a daily video address, saying that his nation required the 185-mile-range ATACMS missile made in the US (297km). He claimed that the missiles will …

In response to the news that a major inflation gauge has declined for the first time in more than two years, President Biden declared that "it's clearer than ever" that his economic policies are having the desired effect. In a speech on Thursday, Biden remarked: "This morning we have some good news. Although consumer prices have risen less quickly than they did six months ago, they are nonetheless higher than they were a year ago. It is lower than the 9.1% this summer. The current amount of inflation is the lowest since October 2021." The aggregate consumer price index decreased by 0.1% from the previous month, which was the biggest monthly decline since April 2020, when Covid-19 put much of the nation on lockdown. The Labor Department's data on Thursday revealed that the overall CPI increased 6.5% from a year earlier, which was the lowest figure since October 2021. The favoured inflation indicator by economists, the core CPI, which excludes the cost of food and energy, increased only 0.3% over the previous month and 5.7% over the previous year. Both metrics were consistent with economist predictions. The stats are encouraging for Biden, who has been pleading with the country to trust in his economic policies in the face of chronic inflation for months. When he took office, he reminded Americans of the plight of the economy. "The economy was in shambles, and the pandemic was rampant. We took prompt action to implement a fresh plan that would save the economy …

The President of Ukraine praised Western countries for sending tanks to aid in the conflict with Russia, but he insisted that they be delivered as soon as possible. Volodymyr Zelensky also urged the West to provide fighter jets and long-range missiles in his nightly address. He made his remarks after the US and Germany said they would send Abrams and Leopard tanks to Ukraine. The announcement was denounced by Russia as a "blatant provocation," and any supplied tanks will be obliterated. "Like the others, these tanks also burn. Simply put, they are quite expensive," a spokesperson for President Vladimir Putin remarked. Mr Zelensky said he told Nato secretary general Jens Stoltenberg that "progress must be made in other aspects of our defence co-operation" - with Ukraine seeking supplies of long-range missiles and artillery. In addition, he pushed for the rapid shipment of Western tanks as well as their substantial deployment: "We must assemble such a tank force, such a freedom force that, after it hits, tyranny will never again rise up," he stated. On Wednesday, US President Joe Biden declared that the US would supply 31 M1 Abrams battle tanks to Ukraine. Only a few hours after Germany declared it would send 14 of its Leopard 2 combat vehicles to Ukraine, the decision to dispatch the tanks was made. Berlin also made it possible for other European nations to donate tanks from their own inventories that were produced in Germany. For months, Ukraine has pushed its Western friends to provide …

​As President Volodymyr Zelensky starts to reorganise the staff in his government, a number of senior Ukrainian officials have resigned. On Tuesday, a senior adviser, four deputy ministers, and five regional governors resigned from their positions. Their departures happen as Ukraine begins a significant anti-corruption drive. Authorities have recently come across allegations of bribery, evidence of officials purchasing food at inflated costs, and one individual suspected of leading a luxurious lifestyle. Mykhailo Podolyak, a senior adviser, claimed that Mr. Zelensky was responding to a "major public demand" that justice be applied equally to everybody. State officials are already prohibited by the president from leaving the nation unless on authorised business. Kyrylo Tymoshenko, who managed regional strategy and had previously worked on Mr. Zelensky's election campaign, was the first to resign on Tuesday. He started acting as the government's spokesperson on a regular basis after Russia began its invasion of Ukraine in February of last year. Although he denies any wrongdoing, he was charged by investigative journalists in Ukraine of using multiple sports cars throughout the battle. He praised Mr. Zelensky for giving him "the opportunity to conduct good things every day and every minute" in a Telegram post. In response to allegations that he managed the purchase of military food supplies from a relatively unheard-of company at inflated costs, deputy defence minister Vyacheslav Shapovalov also announced his resignation. The department claimed that this was a "technical error" and that no money had been exchanged. Oleksii Reznikov, the defence minister, has …

​The US and Germany intend to send tanks to Ukraine after months of delaying the move, which Kiev hopes will shift the dynamics of the war. The administration of US President Joe Biden is anticipated to reveal plans to supply at least 30 M1 Abrams tanks. Olaf Scholz, the Chancellor of Germany, after weeks of indecisiveness, has also finally agreed to send at least 14 Leopard 2 tanks. The revelation was denounced by Russia's envoy to the US as "yet another obvious provocation." Such shipments, according to Ukrainian officials, could help their forces to take back territory from the Russians. Up until now, internal and external pressure on the US and Germany to send their tanks to Ukraine has been met with resistance. Washington has emphasised the high-tech Abrams' considerable maintenance and training needs. Berlin has expressed concern about NATO joining the battle with Russia directly. US media sites are citing unnamed sources when they say that an announcement concerning Abrams shipments to Ukraine could happen as soon as Wednesday. At least 30 of the vehicles could be deployed, according to unnamed officials who were mentioned. However, the delivery schedule is still unknown, and it might take months for the US combat vehicles to arrive at the front line. German officials reportedly privately maintained that they would only consent to the supply of Leopard 2s to Ukraine if the US also delivered M1 Abrams. The British government has already committed to sending Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine. This week, Poland …
