Political reaction to Donald Trump’s historic indictment

Fri, Mar 31, 2023 at 1:41 am

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy denounced the Manhattan DA, claiming Alvin Bragg has “weaponized our sacred system of justice.” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Trump “is subject to the same laws as every American.” Meanwhile, Trump himself said he was “completely innocent” and called the indictment “political persecution.”

Former President Trump Kicks Off Campaign Events

Sat, Jan 28, 2023 at 10:16 pm

The former President is kicking off his 2024 campaign with two stops along the East Coast. More from Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

Former President Donald Trump kicked off his 2024 White House bid with a stop Saturday in New Hampshire before heading to South Carolina, appearances in early-voting states marking the first campaign events since announcing his latest run more than two months ago.

Those states hold two of the party’s first three nominating contests, giving them enormous power in selecting the nominee.

Mr. Trump and his allies hope the events will offer a show of force behind the former president after a sluggish start to his campaign. In recent weeks, his backers have reached out to political operatives and elected officials to secure support for Mr. Trump at a critical point when other Republicans are preparing their own expected challenges.

Another measure of church attendance in the U.S.

VERBATIM: The Pew Research Center poll finds that the share of adults typically attending religious services in person at least once a month dropped from 33% in 2019, before the COVID-19 outbreak, to 30% in 2022. However, the survey also found that the percentage of people who take part in religious services in some way each month — in person, virtually or both — has remained steady since the early days of the pandemic.
