Greg Abbott promised Thursday to keep building Trump's border wall. The pledge directly contradicts President Joe Biden's decision to cancel construction of the border wall that was given vast funding during the Trump years. He did outline a plan to spend $1 billion on border security, and to set up a task force on the border, per the Tribune. Abbott's promise is another salvo in an ongoing feud with the White House on border security. Biden signed an executive order to halt construction of the border wall on his first day in office.

An upcoming government report leaves many questions open about more than 120 UFO sightings, per the NYT. A soon-to-be-released Pentagon report says there is no evidence that UFOs spotted by US Navy personnel are of alien origin — but we know so little about them that it can't be ruled out, The New York Times reported. In March, former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe told Fox News of the report's creation, saying that it will describe "difficult to explain" sightings. Former President Barack Obama also acknowledged on The Late Late Show with James Corden in May that the government has unexplained UFO footage. Other leaked US Navy footage from between 2004 and 2015, long the subject of UFO-watchers' fascination, was officially released by the Pentagon in April last year.

Trump is increasingly fixated on overturning the 2020 election result, advisors reportedly said. Telling Trump he lost is like 'p------ into the wind,' one advisor told The Washington Post. Nearly all the 2020 election advisors who spoke to the paper said they regarded his fixation on litigating the election as a waste of time, but that he kept returning to the topic nonetheless. When advisors leave challenging the 2020 election out of their drafts for his speeches, he goes off-script, ad-libbing about the count in various states, The Post reported. The Office of Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

I said 'biological boys,'" appearing to refer to transgender girls who had not yet received gender-affirming care.

But on Monday, Russia's head of foreign intelligence suggested the UK and US itself might have been behind it. The head of Russia's foreign intelligence service (SVR) suggested without evidence that the US and UK were actually behind last year's SolarWinds hack, which compromised US government agencies and major companies for months. ALEXEY DRUZHININ/AFP/GettyImagesNaryshkin said that all the accusations made against Russian intelligence agencies — "cyber attacks, poisonings, hacks, interference in elections" — were "absurd" and "pathetic."
