    Nearly three-quarters of Americans think the United States is heading in the wrong direction under President Joe Biden, according to yet another bad poll for the president ahead of the midterm elections. Despite grappling with low favorability ratings for much of his first term already, Biden's popularity experienced a deep downturn in recent months amid growing pessimism over the economy. Now, a whopping 74 percent of Americans say the country is on the wrong track, while just 21 percent feel the nation is headed in the right direction, according to a new survey from NBC News.  It found that more than half of the respondents — 58 percent — feel 'more worried that America's best years may already be behind us,' with just 35 percent thinking the best years are yet to come. Among their main concerns, according to the poll, was the economy — with 68 percent of respondents believing the United States is already in a recession, despite Biden's attestations that the economy is rebounding after the country's inflation rate hit a 40-year high in June.  In total,...
    President Joe Biden commiserated with pro-choice Americans during his remarks Monday evening marking the Fourth of July, reminding the country that the U.S. has always been a 'work in progress.'  'In recent days there's been reason to think our country is moving backward, that freedom is being reduced,' the president said. 'That rights we assumed were protected are no longer.'  'I know it can be exhausting and unsettling,' Biden said , speaking to military families and standing alongside First Lady Jill Biden in the South Lawn. 'But tonight, I want you to know: We're going to get through all of this.' Biden pointed out that in the country's 245-year history 'the worst of our past has reached out and pulled us back on occasion,' noting that freedoms are 'under assault.'  Ten days ago the conservative-leaning Supreme Court rolled back federal abortion protections overruling the landmark 1973 decision Roe v. Wade.  Biden also seemingly touched on the Highland Park, Illinois shooting that occurred at a Fourth of July parade earlier in the day.  'You all heard about what happened today,' the president said.   'And...
    (CNN)Vice President Kamala Harris will lead a delegation to Honduras this week to attend the historic inauguration of President-elect Xiomara Castro, looking for additional buy-in to achieve her fraught task of addressing the root causes of migration to the US southern border.In making Thursday's high-profile voyage, experts tell CNN, the vice president and the Biden administration are clearly showing their interest in partnering with Honduras to achieve that goal. But Castro's leadership is already facing a major test as the country finds itself amid political acrimony, presenting pitfalls for Harris and the Biden administration at large. "I think it's an opportunity that we haven't seen in Honduras in quite some time," Jason Marczak, senior director of the Atlantic Council's Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center, told CNN. "And it's an opportunity in which the United States has to use every tool at its disposal to try to move forward, given the importance of addressing these issues for the US's own interests." Castro ran as an agent of change for her country. She was elected on a platform of rooting out corruption,...
    "You look at the issues," the CNN contributor noted. "We built five years of coverage on Trump out of Russia, COVID, and democracy." "The president at his press conference invites Russia to invade the Ukraine," he said. During Biden's rare press conference on Wednesday, he suggested that "minor incursion" by Russia into Ukraine might not warrant a strong international response. The White House has since walked back Biden's comments. Jennings pointed out that there have been more COVID-19 deaths under Biden than Trump. According to Worldometer data, there were 430,803 COVID-19 deaths from the start of the pandemic until Biden was inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2020. As of Jan. 20, 2022, there were a total of 884,866 COVID-19 deaths, meaning that there were 454,063 COVID-19 deaths in Biden's first year as president — despite having the benefit of COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics such as monoclonal antibodies that Trump wasn't afforded. During the presidential debate on Oct. 22, 2020, Biden told Trump, "Anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president of the United...
    Former President Donald Trump told Breitbart News exclusively that the United States of America is “much weaker now” under Democrat President Joe Biden’s leadership and that the world does not “respect” America anymore, thanks to that weakness. “We’re not respected anymore,” Trump said in an exclusive interview on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel. “I really think if you look at the border, it’s really terrible and a terrible thing to watch. I look at it from other countries with millions of people pouring into our country totally unchecked, unvetted,” Trump continued. “Millions of people, they’re dumping their prisons—other countries—into our country. They’re just coming in at will. We had the strongest border in history. Now, we have the weakest by far in history. But I think that the Afghanistan pullout or surrender or whatever you want to call it has totally weakened us in the eyes of our nations. It has totally weakened our country. Our military is great. Our generals are great, except for our television generals; they don’t know what the hell they’re doing....

    Fifty-six percent of Americans disapprove of the direction of the country after President Biden’s first eight months in office according to a Fox News poll. President Biden’s poll numbers are tanking on the heels of a controversial vaccine mandate, an inflated economy, a disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, and a drone strike that killed 10 innocent Afghan civilians, including seven children.

Conversely, 42 percent of respondents reported they approve of how things are going. When it comes to unity, 54 percent of participants believe the country is less unified under Biden, while 37% feel the country is more unified.

    NPR host Michel Martin diverted blame away from President Biden for the ongoing chaos in Afghanistan and suggested that white nationalist groups should be a top concern for the president.  During ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, host Martha Raddatz criticized the Biden administration for short-sighted planning in regards to withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan which has resulted in the Taliban taking over much of the country.  "We may not have known how fast it would happen, but I can’t, it’s hard for me to believe they didn’t have some expectation this would happen since they knew we were pulling out," Raddatz said. Martin interrupted suggesting the blame for the turmoil surrounding the evacuation of U.S. citizens and allies from the country lies with those under President Biden.  "Doesn’t operational effectiveness land a little lower than the Oval?" Martin asked. While Martin acknowledged that Biden as president was responsible for broader strokes of the U.S. troop pullout, the blame also lied with Biden’s predecessors for failing to prepare.

Schumer was spotted dancing backstage with late-night comedian Stephen Colbert during the "We Love NYC: The Homecoming Concert" in Central Park, which was cut short Saturday night due to inclement weather.

Elise Stefanik said Sunday that the Middle East under President Joe Biden has “Islamic terrorists on the march.” The congresswoman tweeted that under former President Donald Trump, the U.S. “crushed the Islamic Terrorists like Soleimani, protected American citizens & embassies around the world, and delivered historic peace to the Middle East.” Under Trump: The US crushed the Islamic Terrorists like Soleimani, protected American citizens & embassies around the world, and delivered historic peace to the Middle East.

    A soldier stands guard in a tower overlooking Camp Delta at Guantanamo Bay naval base in a December 31, 2009 file photo provided by the US Navy.U.S. Navy | Reuters The Pentagon said Monday that it had transferred a Moroccan citizen from Guantanamo Bay to his home country, marking the first such release under President Joe Biden, who has vowed to shut down the controversial prison facility. The transfer of Abdul Latif Nasir to Morocco leaves 39 inmates left at the island prison located on Cuba's eastern coast. His transfer follows a panel decision in 2016 which found that Nasir, an alleged former al Qaeda member, no longer needed to be detained by the U.S. to protect American national security. Nasir's lawyer cheered his transfer. "This is an enormously welcome event. I'm still in shock about it," the attorney, Shelby Sullivan-Bennis, said in a brief interview by phone. Nasir's release reflects the ping-ponging of presidential policy on Guantanamo Bay. President George W. Bush established the detention facility in 2002, in the wake of the September 11 terrorist attacks. Nearly 800...
    In an update on America’s progress against the coronavirus, President Joe Biden appeared to give Donald Trump a measure of credit for the country’s effort in developing vaccines. Biden delivered his update from the White House on Wednesday, and even though he didn’t mention the former president’s name at any point in his speech, he acknowledged that his predecessor’s administration had a role in America’s scientific mobilization and emergency vaccine authorization. These remarks came from Biden as he celebrated the increasing number of vaccinations across the country and encouraged more people to get inoculated. “Getting the vaccine is not a partisan act,” Biden said. “The science was done under Democratic and Republican administrations. Matter of fact, the first vaccines were authorized under a Republican president, and widely developed by a Democratic president, deployed by a Democratic president.” Watch above, via MSNBC.

    U.S. President Joe Biden holds a card with the number of people who have died of the Coronavirus disease as he delivers remarks on the state of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccinations from the State Dining Room at the White House in Washington, D.C., April 6, 2021.Kevin Lamarque | Reuters President Joe Biden announced Tuesday that the United States has administered 150 million Covid-19 vaccine shots since his inauguration, and the president is now aiming to have 200 million vaccine doses administered within his first 100 days in office. The country is already on track to beat that goal. In the days remaining until April 30, Biden's 100th day in office, the U.S. needs to average about 2 million daily vaccine doses administered to reach 200 million total. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data show that the country is currently administering 3 million shots per day on average. If the country maintains its current daily pace throughout the rest of the month, the Biden administration will land somewhere around 225 million total doses administered in that 100 day period....

    Former President Donald Trump strongly criticized President Joe Biden in an interview Monday for reopening the border by rolling back tough immigration policies and creating a new migrant crisis. “They’ll be coming up by the millions,” Trump said about the flood of migrants crossing the border into the United States. The former president discussed the border crisis with Fox News host Lisa Boothe in a podcast interview released Monday. Trump warned Americans the crisis would get far worse during the Biden administration, even though record numbers were already crossing the border. “It’s nothing compared to what’s going to be in a couple of months,” he said. Trump noted Latin American countries like El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala were “not sending up their finest” to the United States and even warned that even people from the Middle East were again crossing the border. “As I said before, you have some very bad hombres coming up and we’re taking them into our country and it’s insane,” Trump said. He emphasized that, once migrants were released into the country, they would disappear. “They...

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden finally condemned the violence gripping American cities after weeks of silence on the issue, but the question remains whether he would do enough to keep America safe, Laura Ingraham said Monday. "It took the polls tightening in key states to jolt Joe Biden out of his basement ... and after three months of essentially his indifference, Biden called for an end to the riots," the "Ingraham Angle" host said. DEMS STRUGGLE TO ADDRESS RIOTS The former vice president, speaking Monday in Pittsburgh, charged that “this president [Trump] long ago forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence – because for years he has fomented it ... fires are burning and we have a president who fans the flames rather than fighting the flames.” And countering the president’s claims that Biden will govern like a radical, Biden emphasized: “You know me. You know my heart. You know my story, my family’s story. Ask yourself, do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters? Really? I want a safe America.
