1 Possible Russian Missile Crossed Into Poland During Ukraine Attack

President Biden is on his way back to Washington after a busy day in Bali. It was confirmed yesterday that two Russian-made missiles landed in a NATO-allied Polish city near the border of Ukraine and the resulting explosions killed two people. The question? Who fired them. Hours later, Biden spoke from a G20 Summit where he called an emergency roundtable meeting of world leaders. He announced there was some evidence that contested the idea that Russia launched the weapons, saying "It is unlikely in the lines of the trajectory that it was fired from Russia." Mr. Biden has pledged U.S. support for Poland during their investigation and reaffirmed America's "ironclad commitment to NATO,” but says he wants the investigation to be completed before jumping to conclusions.

2 Trump Is “In” For 2024

In news that would shock absolutely no one, former President Donald Trump has officially thrown his hat into the ring for 2024. Speaking last night from his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, Trump said "America's comeback starts right now." In his remarks, Trump said America was thriving under his leadership, and he “built the greatest economy in the history of the world.” As he sees it, the U.S. is in decline under President Biden. He added the "Green New Deal" is more important to Democrats than a nuclear threat. And pledging to be a “unifier,” Trump said we will "soon be a great nation again."

3 Artemis One Moon Mission Underway

NASA just launched its Artemis One moon rocket overnight. It marks the first step in returning Americans to the moon and eventually on to Mars. It's an un-crewed mission that will last four to six weeks, circle the moon, and come back. If all goes well, Artemis Two will make the same journey with astronauts later down the road – before the final Artemis Three mission lands astronauts on the surface sometime after 2024. “For the Artemis generation,” launch director Charlie Blackwell-Thompson said shortly before liftoff. “This is for you.” He was referring to young people who were not alive for Apollo.
