Former President Donald Trump lashed out at a few individuals and NATO over the weekend at an event with RNC donors. Trump took a swipe towards GOP Senator Bill Cassidy, GOP attorney George Conway, and the NATO alliance.

At an event in Louisiana for donors of the Republican National Committee Saturday, Trump lashed out at Cassidy and Conway as well as undermined NATO in his remarks to donors. A recording of the former president’s remarks was obtained by Politico’s Alex Isenstadt and the Washington Post’s Josh Dawsey.

Dawsey reported that the former president called the Louisiana lawmaker “useless” and called Conway, who is married to the former president’s adviser Kellyanne Conway, “that dumb son of a b***ch.” The former president also referred to NATO as a “paper tiger” as Ukraine continues to fight off Russia’s offensive for the past several days.

According to Isenstadt, Trump said that the GOP will take the White House in the 2024 elections.

“We will see a Republican reclaim that beautiful White House in 2024. I wonder who that might be,” said Trump. “We are looking at it very, very strongly because we have to do it, we have to do it.”

Conway responded to Trump’s remarks, saying, “He’s just jealous I can spell.”

Trump is still facing investigations, with one probe coming from the congressional committee looking into the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol. Trump failed his attempts to block the release of his records related to January 6 in the courts, including the Supreme Court. According to the committee’s chair, Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson, the bipartisan panel has received new information from the National Archives.

Thompson said Monday that the committee has started receiving the Trump White House visitor logs, including records from former vice president Mike Pence’s office, describing the new development as “fruitful.”

CNN’s Annie Grayer reported that the National Archives initially scheduled the start of the turnover of the records to the committee on March 3, but the records did not start arriving until this week.

The congressional committee has projected that public hearings may start regarding its findings by April.
