Trump vows to end ‘gender insanity’ in schools

Published

on

Former US President Donald Trump has pledged that, if re-elected this November, he will defund schools that promote “inappropriate” content to children, including gender identity and critical race theory. He also promised to strip federal funding from schools that mandate vaccines and masks and to ban men from participating in women’s sports.

Trump has emphasized that education is a primary focus of his presidential campaign, arguing for a complete overhaul of the current system. He has previously outlined plans to dismantle the Department of Education, revise school curricula, and introduce elections for school principals.

“On day one, I will sign a new executive order to cut federal funding for any school pushing critical race theory, transgender insanity, and other inappropriate racial, sexual, or political content on to the lives of our children,” Trump told a cheering crowd at Turning Point Action’s ‘The People’s Convention’ in Michigan on Saturday.

“And I will not give one penny to any school that has a vaccine mandate or a mask mandate,” he continued, adding that he will also “keep men out of women’s sports” and fully uphold the Second Amendment, which protects Americans’ right to keep and bear arms.

“We will protect innocent lives and we will restore a thing called free speech, as it is being taken away from us by these radical thugs,” Trump vowed after announcing his full endorsement by the National Rifle Association (NRA) gun rights advocacy group.

Trump accused the Democrats of enforcing “liberal indoctrination of America’s youth” and vowed to reverse a new expansion by President Joe Biden’s administration of Title IX. The expansion restricts federally funded schools from preventing transgender students from using bathrooms, locker rooms, and pronouns aligned with their identities. Trump also pledged to block doctors who provide gender-affirming care and to forbid federal agencies from promoting “the concept of sex and gender transition at any age.”

“The left-wing gender insanity being pushed at our children is an act of child abuse. Very simple. Here’s my plan to stop the chemical, physical, and emotional mutilation of our youth,” Trump said in a video address in January, detailing a range of policies designed to curb the promotion of the LGBTQ agenda.

Federal Judge Grants Trump’s Request to Delay Classified Documents Case

Published

on

Federal Judge Aileen Cannon has granted former President Donald Trump’s request to delay certain deadlines in his classified documents case. This decision allows time for prosecutors to review the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling on presidential immunity.

Trump’s attorneys submitted a request on Friday asking for permission to file documents to argue that Trump should be immune from prosecution in this case. They proposed a schedule extending through early September, as reported by The Hill.

On Saturday, Cannon ruled that prosecutors and special counsel Jack Smith have until July 18 to respond to Trump’s arguments, according to The New York Times. This ruling follows the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision earlier this month, which stated that Trump is immune from federal prosecution for some official acts taken while in office. However, the justices clarified that this immunity does not extend to unofficial acts.

Trump’s legal team also referenced Justice Clarence Thomas’s opinion in the Supreme Court decision, which questions the authority of special counsel Jack Smith.

In addition to these developments, Cannon has postponed two deadlines in the classified documents case. While this could result in a slight delay, the case continues to progress amid these legal adjustments.

CNN Abruptly Cuts Off Trump Campaign Spokeswoman Live on Air Ahead of First Presidential Debate

Published

By

CNN abruptly cut off Trump campaign spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt during a live interview on Monday morning. The incident occurred just days before the network is set to host the first presidential debate between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden.

The interview began with anchor Kasie Hunt asking Leavitt about Trump’s strategy for the upcoming debate in Atlanta, Georgia. Leavitt started by asserting that Trump is well-prepared and doesn’t need to rely on advisors for what to say, contrasting this with her depiction of Biden’s approach.

“President Trump is well-prepared ahead of Thursday’s debates. Unlike Joe Biden, he doesn’t have to hide away and have his advisors tell him what to say. President Trump knows what he wants to say,” Leavitt stated.

Leavitt then shifted the conversation to the debate environment, expressing concerns about potential bias from CNN’s moderators, Jake Tapper and Dana Bash.

“That’s why President Trump is knowingly going into a hostile environment on this very network on CNN with debate moderators who have made their opinions about him very well-known over the past eight years in their biased coverage of him,” she said.

Hunt quickly responded, defending her colleagues as “professionals” and proceeded to play a series of clips showing Trump’s previous comments about debate moderators. As Leavitt attempted to interject, reiterating her point about bias, Hunt repeatedly interrupted her.

“Ma’am, we’re going to stop right there if you’re going to keep attacking my colleagues,” Hunt said firmly. “I would like to talk about Joe Biden and Donald Trump, who you work for.”

Shortly after, Hunt abruptly ended the interview. “I’m sorry guys … Karoline thank you very much for your time. You’re welcome to come back at any time,” she declared before cutting the feed.

Hunt later defended her decision on social media, writing on X, “You come on my show, you respect my colleagues. Period. I don’t care what side of the aisle you stand on, as my track record clearly shows.”

This incident has added fuel to the already intense anticipation surrounding the upcoming presidential debate. Both Trump and Biden are scheduled to take the stage in Atlanta on Thursday, with CNN’s moderators expected to play a pivotal role in guiding the discussion.

Leavitt’s abrupt cut-off has drawn mixed reactions from viewers and political commentators. Some criticized CNN for silencing a campaign spokesperson, while others supported Hunt’s stance on maintaining respect for her colleagues.

The debate on Thursday is expected to be a crucial moment in the 2024 presidential race, with both candidates facing off on various pressing issues. The incident on Monday has set the stage for what promises to be a highly charged and closely watched event.

Trump Leads Biden by 10 Points in New National Poll

Published

on

In a surprising turn of events, former President Donald Trump is leading President Joe Biden by 10 points in the 2024 White House race, according to a new national poll. The Rasmussen Reports survey, released on Friday, shows that 46% of likely voters support the 78-year-old presumptive Republican nominee, while 36% back the 81-year-old incumbent.

Trump’s Lead Extends Beyond Head-to-Head Matchup

The poll also includes third-party candidates, further highlighting Trump’s lead. Independent candidates Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West received 9% and 2% support, respectively, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein garnered 1% support. Even in a head-to-head matchup without third-party contenders, Trump leads Biden with 49% support to Biden’s 40%. Additionally, 7% of voters indicated they would vote for another candidate, and 4% remain undecided.

Divergence from Other Polls

Despite the striking numbers from the Rasmussen Reports survey, it remains an outlier compared to other polls. According to a FiveThirtyEight average of recent polls, the race is much closer, with Biden at 40.7% and Trump at 40.4%. Similarly, a RealClearPolitics average of surveys shows Trump leading Biden by less than 1 point in a head-to-head race, with Trump at 46.1% and Biden at 45.2%. In a five-way race, Trump’s lead expands slightly to 1.9 points, standing at 42.1% compared to Biden’s 40.2%.

Voter Disapproval of Biden’s Performance

The Rasmussen poll also highlights a significant disapproval of Biden’s performance in office. A majority of voters (54%) disapprove of Biden’s job as president. Additionally, 59% of respondents believe that the government is not doing enough to combat illegal border crossings and visitor overstays.

Former President Trump celebrated the Rasmussen poll results on Truth Social, sharing a graphic that read, “Trump crushes Biden big with 10-point lead.” He pinned this post to the top of his timeline, emphasizing his significant lead in the survey.

As the 2024 presidential race heats up, the Rasmussen Reports survey injects new dynamics into the political landscape. While it stands as an outlier compared to other polls, it highlights the volatility and unpredictability of the current political environment. The coming months will reveal whether this substantial lead for Trump will hold or if other polls will show a closer race between the two candidates.
