Tommy Pigott, director of strategic communications for the Republican National Committee (RNC), said President Biden has visited more active conflict zones in eight months than all prior presidents put together to emphasize the administration’s war-minded agenda and how many conflicts have broken out under the Biden administrations tenure.
Pigott, on the other hand, argues that Biden’s predecessors often visited both Afghanistan and Iraq.
According to President Joe Biden, there are now three active combat zones in the world: Ukraine, Israel, and Afghanistan. He also says that Biden has been wrong about almost every significant foreign policy and national security topic during the past four decades.
Ron DeSantis, governor of Florida, is running for president and noting that he would be the first president to have served in a war since Ronald Reagan in 1988. He refers to people in Washington, D.C., who don’t share his patriotism and argues that the country’s elites have weakened the military, resulting in wokeness, low morale, and record-low recruiting.
DeSantis has created a Veterans Coalition to support service personnel better and fulfill his campaign pledges to rebuild the military and care for America’s heroes.
The Gallup Poll has followed popular sentiments against the media for decades, and the most recent results are discouraging. The 32% of Americans who have “a great deal” or “a good bit” of faith in the media to report the news in a complete, fair, and accurate way is tied with the 2016 polling as the lowest ever recorded by Gallup.
A record-high 39% of American adults report having “none at all” trust, and another 29% report having “not very much.” The roughly 40% of Americans with zero trust in the media is the most significant percentage ever recorded, up 11% from 2016, when Trump was a presidential contender and the media took a beating.
