DeSantis steps up criticism of Trump in Iowa campaigning

Wed, May 31, 2023 at 4:49 pm

Now that he’s a declared presidential candidate, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is stepping up his criticism of Donald Trump. Campaigning in Iowa, DeSantis accused Trump of essentially abandoning “America First” principles on immigration, supporting coronavirus pandemic-related lockdowns, and generally having “moved left” on key issues. And DeSantis laughed off any criticism the former president had lobbed his way over his leadership in Florida, noting that Trump’s family moved to the state under his governorship.

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.

When it comes to evangelism, the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak

When it comes to evangelism, the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak

VERBATIM: When you ask self-identified Christians about sharing the gospel — as Life Way Research did — they’re all for it. 93% of believers say they are open to having a conversation about Christ with a friend and 81% say they would also talk to a stranger. But real life is different. The same poll finds only about half of Christians have shared their faith with a loved one in the past six months and just 40% did so with somebody they didn’t know.
