Biden’s overwhelming election sweep has dwindled to a mere trickle during his time in office. But many Republicans don’t see Trump as a viable candidate either. So, the Office of the President of the United States may be up for grabs in the near future.
The annual inflation rate in the US rose to 7.9% in February of 2022, the highest since January 1982. And though the Biden White House is betting the US economy is strong enough to withstand a myriad of challenges, there are growing fears among voters of an economic slump and including some Wall Street analysts.
After Democrats and Republicans laid out their arguments, the Senate voted 57 guilty and 43 not guilty, not enough to convict the former president of incitement to insurrection. Donald Trump is therefore not barred from running again in 2024 if he so wishes. Trump supporters were happy at the result and the Democrats were dismayed.

Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren: “I’ve heard that there are some billionaires that don’t support this plan… All we are saying is when you make it big, pitch in two cents so everybody gets a chance to make it.”
Twelve Democratic hopefuls faced off in Ohio in mid-October in the largest US presidential primary debate in history. Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump has withdrawn US military personnel from the war zones of Syria. The New York Times quotes Aleksandr Shumilin, a Middle East specialist at the Institute of Europe of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow, as saying, “This is an unexpected gift for Putin.”
If you've been keeping up with the news, you may have realized that in the Congressional Hearings with Special Investigator Robert Mueller, President Trump was not fully exonerated from wrongdoing by Mueller's report. But although he may not be removed from office through impeachment, the President could be prosecuted after he leaves office for Russian collusion and obstruction of justice, both of which the he vehemently denies ever occurred.
It has been proven that the Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential campaigns on both sides, but Donald Trump himself has been exonerated of wrongdoing by Robert Mueller's 448-page report, which clears Trump of collusion and obstruction of justice, both impeachable offenses. Dealing with the Russians has always been a sticky-wicket for Americans, who generally see the Soviets as their avowed enemies in the world today. Colluding with Russians, therefore, was seen as a treasonable act, and the President "has never been happier" that he has been vindicated of that charge in what he has repeatedly called a Democratic "Witchhunt".
