Special counsel feeds frenzy over Biden's age

·1 min

Donald Trump had a promising day, boosting his chances for success in the 2024 presidential race. An independent special counsel’s report criticized Joe Biden’s memory and handling of classified documents but concluded that he couldn’t be convicted due to his failing memory. This fueled concerns about Biden’s age and fitness for office, leading to a defensive response from the president at a press conference. Trump’s victory in the Nevada and US Virgin Islands caucuses, as well as skepticism from Supreme Court justices regarding Colorado’s attempt to bar him from election ballots, further solidified his position. Overall, these developments have given Trump a temporary sense of political security.
