Trump's Awful Week Thus Far
The previous week's indictment may have been a harrowing blow for former President Trump, yet this week's events are proving to be no less calamitous. In fact, the misfortunes that have befallen the former president have been notably distressing. It's worth examining the trio of significant news stories that are sure to be causing Trump considerable discomfort as the week wears on.
25% Favorability in New ABC News Polls
According to a recent ABC News poll, half of the participants surveyed believe that former President Donald Trump should be charged with a crime, while only 33% are of the opinion that he should not. The poll also indicates that almost half of the respondents suggested that Trump should suspend his campaign following the indictment, which is an increase from the 43% who held that view before the indictment.
In another finding from the poll, Trump's favorability rating has seen a significant decline to 25%, which is a 10-point decrease since the presidential election. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden, who has been struggling to win over public support since he assumed office in 2020, currently has a favorability rating of 34%.
Stephen Miller Testifies before Grand Jury:
Stephen Miller, a former senior adviser to President Donald J. Trump, appeared before a federal grand jury on Monday as part of an investigation into efforts by Mr. Trump and his allies to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. The grand jury has been hearing evidence in a probe led by Justice Department Special Counsel Jack Smith.
Mr. Miller's appearance at the courthouse in Washington came after a federal appeals court rejected Mr. Trump's request to block grand jury testimony by several former top administration officials, including Mr. Miller. The former president had argued that executive privilege should shield the advisers from being compelled to testify, but a district judge denied his challenge.
Accompanied by two attorneys, Mr. Miller entered the grand jury suite without speaking to reporters. He played a significant role in Mr. Trump's post-election efforts to challenge the outcome of the election, and was prominently featured in the final report of the special congressional committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the United States Capitol.
