Trump Responds to Roe v Wade‚ Calling it a historic ErrorIn a scathing response to the U.S. Supreme Court Roe v.

A survey was released on Thursday afternoon Gallup revealed that 25% Americans don't have much or very high confidence in the Supreme Court. The figure is 5 percentage points lower than the 2014 low and down by 11%. This poll was conducted before Thursday's decision to remove restrictions on concealed gun carry.

McConnell then expedited the replacement Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat‚ which she died in September 2020 to ensure that conservative Amy Coney Barrett was elected her successor‚ even though Trump had lost 2020.
