House Speaker Mike Johnson is set to make an appearance alongside Donald Trump today at Mar-a-Lago. The two are slated to hold a news focused on election integrity. The former president has repeatedly claimed the 2020 election was rigged against him. The event comes as Johnson faces threats from some conservative Republicans to oust him as speaker if he moves forward with Ukraine funding.       The lead prosecutor in O.J. Simpson's murder trial is reacting the NFL star's death. Marcia Clark told Entertainment Tonight, "I send my condolences to Mr. Simpson's family." Simpson passed away April 10th from cancer. He was famously acquitted of the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.       Vice President Kamala Harris is headed to Arizona today after the state supreme court upheld a near-total ban on abortions that was put in place 160 years ago. She'll be in Tucson [[ Too-sahn ]] for an event focusing on abortion and the Biden administration's efforts to keep abortion legal. Harris was just in Phoenix last month to show opposition against attempts to limit or restrict abortion.       A new analysis estimates President Biden's new student debt relief plan to cost tax payers around 84-billion dollars. A Penn Wharton Budget Model looks at five parts of Biden's plan to total how much the initiatives would cost. The model shows that the biggest cost would be Biden's proposal to cancel up to 20-thousand dollars for borrowers with balances from unpaid interest.       A Tennessee bill that would criminalize providing transgender care to a minor is moving on to the state House for debate. The measure would criminalize adults who help minors receive gender-affirming care without parental consent would become a felony. The bill was passed by the Senate on Thursday and will be debated in the House which is expected to support the legislation.        A reminder for taxpayers when it comes to charitable deduction rules. The IRS says those who itemize must remember that donations must be to a qualified organization. Other rules include: the donation must have been during the proper tax year, there must be a record of it, and the total deduction cannot be more than 60-percent of your adjusted gross income.
