Why Donald Trump “must win” in 2024



Donald Trump becomes the first former U.S. President to face federal criminal charges, setting the scene for an unprecedented 2024 presidential election

Even out of office, Donald Trump can’t stop making history as a former U.S. President, from his unprecedented indictment in New York, to his federal charges in Miami.

These charges bring a maximum sentence of up to 136 years, though a maximum sentence is unlikely.

“There’s no doubt that Trump absolutely wants to reassert his Presidency, and then wreak vengeance on his enemies and use the power of the state to do it,” said Bruce Wolpe from the U.S. Studies Centre.

“The future of Democracy is on the ballot as Trump is an anti-democratic candidate,” he added.

On top of becoming the first president to face federal criminal charges, Trump was also the only U.S. President to get impeached twice, and the only one to lose the popular vote two times.

But despite all of his political baggage and mounting legal problems, early polls show Trump remains the favourite to win the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

Even those who have worked alongside Trump are worried, however, including former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr.

“Should we be putting someone like this forward as the leader of the country, the leader of the free world, who has engaged in this type of conduct?” he said regarding Trump’s legal troubles on U.S. network CBS.

China conducts ‘punishment’ war games near Taiwan



China initiated military ‘punishment’ exercises in the waters surrounding Taiwan in response to the newly inaugurated President Lai Ching-te.

These drills come amid escalating tensions in the region, with Beijing asserting its sovereignty over Taiwan, denouncing the inauguration of President Lai Ching-te and labelling this one of several “separatist acts”, as reported by Reuters.

These military manoeuvres are seen as a show of force and a warning to Taiwan and its supporters against any moves perceived as challenging China’s territorial claims.

President Lai has repeatedly offered talks with China but has been rebuffed.

He says only Taiwan’s people can decide their future, and rejects Beijing’s sovereignty claims.
