President Donald Trump has the support of 70 percent of GOP voters, despite a concerted effort by Democrats and anti-Trump media to target him.
A recent new national poll by NBC news reveals that GOP voters aren’t dissuaded by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s indictment of Trump or any other legal investigations. Maybe it’s because the evidence about actual corruption is piling up against President Joe Biden and his family?
But unlike the support the GOP has for Trump, the exact opposite is true for President Biden. His announcement Monday that he is seeking re-elections was lack luster and a new NBC poll reveals that 70 percent of Americans do not want him to run again.

Trump also has a double-digit lead over potential GOP rival Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. It appears that as of now the former president is the clear frontrunner for the GOP and has received substantial support from lawmakers in his state of Florida over the past month.
DeSantis, however, has still to announce his candidacy for President. He took a swipe at Trump at a Saturday event over Dr. Anthony Fauci’s role during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“A leader must have the confidence to stand all alone if need be,” said DeSantis and as reported by Fox. He made the speech at the Utah GOP Convention on Saturday.
“And so for us, as I got into office, COVID presented that situation for us because we were in a situation – the third-largest state in the country – one of the highest percentage of elderly, economy based on tourism, which we needed to travel to continue,” he said.
Trump also continues to take his own swipes at DeSantis, calling him DeSanctus on his Truth Social media platform.
“The ‘Consultants’ are sending DeSanctus, and demanding that he go immediately, on an emergency Round the Wold tour of U.S. representative population countries, like South Korea, Japan, the United Kingdom, and Israel in order to up his game and see if he can remove the stain of his failing campaign,” Trump said.

Hunter Biden Indicted on Federal Gun Charges Amidst Special Counsel Investigation
In a significant development, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, was indicted on Thursday on federal gun charges as part of Special Counsel David Weiss’ ongoing investigation. The indictment alleges that Hunter Biden made false statements during the purchase of a firearm, among other charges.
The charges against Hunter Biden include:
• Making a false statement in the purchase of a firearm
• Making a false statement related to information required to be kept by a federal firearms licensed dealer
•Possession of a firearm by a person who is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance
According to the indictment, the alleged incident occurred on or about October 12, 2018, in the District of Delaware. Hunter Biden is accused of knowingly making a false and fictitious written statement during the acquisition of a Colt Cobra 38SPL Revolver. According to reports from Fox News, the statement, submitted on Form 4473, falsely certified that he was not an unlawful user of, and addicted to, any stimulant, narcotic drug, or controlled substance.
Furthermore, the indictment further states that between October 12, 2018, and October 23, 2018, in the District of Delaware, Hunter Biden knowingly possessed the same firearm despite being an unlawful user of and addicted to controlled substances. This marks the first set of charges brought by Special Counsel David Weiss against Hunter Biden since being granted special counsel status.
The investigation came to public attention when it was reported by Fox News in 2021 that police had responded to an incident in 2018 involving a gun owned by Hunter Biden.
Reports state that, Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s late son, Beau, who was in a relationship with Hunter at the time, discarded the gun. Hunter’s gun was thrown away in a dumpster near a market, located close to a school. It was subsequently revealed that Hunter Biden had purchased a gun earlier that same month.
Hunter Biden’s legal troubles do not end with the gun charges. Earlier in July, an original plea agreement collapsed, which would have seen him plead guilty to two misdemeanor tax counts for willful failure to pay federal income tax, thus avoiding jail time on a felony gun charge. Instead, he pleaded not guilty to two misdemeanor tax charges and one felony gun charge.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed David Weiss as special counsel to oversee the Hunter Biden investigation and related matters. The White House has declined to comment on these developments, which continue to draw significant public and media attention.
