Trump Says Battleground Polls ‘finally forced’ Biden ‘out of his basement’

With less than 60 days until the November election, President Donald Trump and former Vice President and Democratic nominee Joe Biden are taking to battleground states in an effort to sway key voters. Biden, who has been holding his campaign events virtually for months amid the COVID-19 pandemic, is finally on the campaign trail to visit those states.

Trump and Vice President Mike Pence visited Pennsylvania last week and Trump is set to return this week. Trump will also make campaign stops in Florida, North Carolina, Michigan, and Nevada this week, per Newsmax’s Logan Ratick.

Biden also visited Pennsylvania last week and is set to visit Arizona, Michigan, and Minnesota this week, according to reports.

On Tuesday, President Trump wrote on Twitter that “Biden is finally being forced out of his basement. Now you’ll be able to see what is going on ‘up there.’ He may do some ‘limited’ campaigning. Basement Biden is no longer playing well in the Polls!”

Earlier, he tweeted, “If Biden’s Polling wasn’t going down, and fast, he wouldn’t be going to Pittsburgh.”

Pennsylvania holds the second-highest number of electoral votes and President Trump won the state in the 2016 election. Last week’s polls showed Trump holding a lead over Biden in the Keystone State. Biden holds a small lead in many polls after his weekend visit.

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.
