Words can’t express the frustration we feel watching the former failed president Donald Trump rise through the GOP ranks for another presidential run.
Since announcing his bid for the 2024 presidential election, Trump has threatened to abuse power for retribution of his political opponents, vowed to act as a dictator for the first day of his presidency, and promised to retaliate against the Biden family by ordering a special counsel to investigate them.
Despite surrendering for arrest on charges stemming from his efforts to overturn the 2020 election and the 91 felony counts he’s facing for fraud, sexual harassment, mishandling of classified state documents and election subversion, Trump has emerged as a front-runner for the GOP nomination.
Tonight, we watched Trump tout election misinformation, anti-democratic extremism, and divisive policy on a Fox News Town Hall.
Most notably, Trump celebrated the overturning of Roe v. Wade during his presidency, the Supreme Court ruling that devastatingly ended the right to legal abortion in the United States. The end of legally protected abortions had sweeping implications across the United States as conservatives around the country enacted extreme abortion bans forcing women to travel to states like Minnesota for reproductive health care.
With so much news breaking every day, it can be hard to keep up. But the stakes have never been higher.
