At the southern border, over 5 million illegal migrants have crossed the porous region into the United States since 2021, and above all Biden has appeared powerless, confused, and incompetent in the face of the problems. Only 26% believe the president possesses the cognitive ability to perform the duties of the presidency; these statistics were produced by the media outlet the Hill in early September. While the presidential election of 2024 remains political lightyears away, both the Democratic and Republican parties are gearing up for the upcoming battle for the federal executive office. In the Democratic party, while vulnerable President Biden remains the party frontrunner for the nomination. In the Republican party, the former 45th President Donald Trump maintains a 40 point lead over his nearest challenger, Ron Desantis.
Trump has maintained this significant lead in the face of four criminal indictments, which have actually acted as a motivating force for prospective Republican voters and galvanized support for the American business mogul from New York City. Despite signs that Trump may win the 2024 GOP nomination, opponents on both sides of the aisle are pulling out all the stops to bar him from taking office. The national political climate is ominous; the former governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee has speculated that the upcoming election could be the “last American election”, alluding to the potential for a second civil war.
There’s no denying that the political situation within the United States is troubling and worrisome. Trump continues to battle leftist activists who have attempted to use American judicial system to bar him from seeking office again. A former U.S. attorney named Barbara McQuade recently claimed that Trumps lawyers made “very misleading” arguments regarding his allegedly poor behavior in relation to judges and court officials. Trump has utilized his social media account on Truth social to voice his displeasures, and this has resulted in him being issued gag orders as a consequence.
