Trump Running for President in 2024 a Win for CNN

Donald Trump launched a bid to win the presidency again in 2024 to fend off potential Republican challengers. Since losing the 2020 election, Trump has waged relentless attacks on the legitimacy of the American electoral process.

A week after the midterm elections, in which Republicans did not succeed in capturing as many seats in Congress as they had hoped, Trump made his announcement at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, seeking a potential rematch with Democratic President Joe Biden.

Trump addressed hundreds of supporters in a ballroom adorned with numerous chandeliers and lined with dozens of American flags during a speech that lasted just over an hour and was live broadcast on American television.

Trump addressed the cheering, phone-waving crowd, which included family members, donors, and former staff members, saying, “To make America great again, I am tonight announcing my candidacy for president of the United States.”

Aides registered paperwork with the U.S. earlier in the day. The Federal Election Commission has established the “Donald J. Trump for President 2024” committee.

Trump predicted that left-wing organizations, the Washington establishment, and the media would oppose his campaign. But we won’t be deterred; we’ll keep going and forge ahead into the torrent.

Before the Republican nominee is formally chosen in the summer of 2024, there is still a long way to go, as the first state-level elections are still more than a year away.

Trump actively participated in the midterm elections, supporting and endorsing candidates who echoed his untrue assertions that the 2020 election would be stolen from him by widespread voter fraud.

However, many of his candidates in crucial swing states lost, prompting some well-known establishment Republicans, including Mitch Romney, to publicly accuse him of endangering the party’s chances of seizing the Senate by endorsing dubious candidates.


Most Republicans favour Trump.

However, a May NBC News poll found that most Republicans had a favourable opinion of him. That alone may give Trump a significant advantage over rivals in the primary who voters are still getting to know.

Trump will run for the Republican nomination despite being embroiled in several legal issues, including a criminal investigation into his possession of government records obtained after he left office and a congressional subpoena regarding his involvement in the assault on January 6, 2021.

Trump has denied wrongdoing and called the numerous investigations into him politically motivated.

Trump, 76, wants to follow Grover Cleveland, whose second presidential term ended in 1897, as the only president to have served non-consecutive terms in American history.

According to Nielsen Media Research data, Trump’s candidacy for president is good news for CNN after Trump’s exit from the White House caused a decline in their ratings.

Between the day after the election on November 4, 2020, and the inauguration day on January 20, 2021, the network averaged 2.5 million viewers during prime time.

However, those figures have significantly decreased since President Joe Biden’s inauguration. Between January 21 and March 15, Fox News reported an average of 1.6 million viewers tuned in during the prime time. That represents a 36% decrease since Biden took office.

CNN Rating Dive After Trump

Between December 28 and January 20, prime-time viewers also stopped watching CNN. According to Fox News, the network lost almost half (49%) of its prime-time viewers. According to the media outlet, only 1.6 million people watched prime-time programs on average.

The prime-time ratings among CNN’s main audience are appalling. According to MIT Media Lab, the network’s target demographic is people between the ages of 25 and 54. During the inauguration of Vice President Joe Biden and March 15, CNN saw a 47% decline in viewers in that demographic.

CNN’s ratings aren’t doing much better during the day. The Business Insider reported that the network’s daytime viewership fell by 34% between election day and inauguration day. In the crucial age group, CNN lost 58% of viewers between the ages of 25 and 54.

During the Trump administration, CNN prospered. According to The New York Times, the network’s viewership reached a 40-year high in November 2020.

According to Variety’s Brian Steinberg, “palpable concern” is that the former president’s departure will result in a long-lasting decline in cable news ratings.

According to reports, network executives are anxious about the post-Trump era. Several executives and journalists told The New York Times that they are “uneasy” about the coming year.

India, At UN, Is Mum About Dispute With Canada Over Sikh Separatist Leader’s Killing

Avatar for Kiara Grace




UNITED NATIONS — As he addressed world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, India’s top diplomat avoided addressing his country’s dispute with Canada over the assassination of a Sikh separatist leader. However, he indirectly criticized how other nations respond to “terrorism.”

Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar devoted most of his speech to praising India’s rising global stature and aspirations for leadership, highlighting its recent tenure as chair of the Group of 20 industrialized nations and presiding over a substantial summit meeting last month.

However, he also stated that the international community must not “allow political expediency to determine responses to terrorism, extremism, and violence.”

India has frequently attacked Pakistan at the United Nations over what New Delhi perceives as Pakistan’s sponsorship of terrorism. This time, however, the remark could be interpreted as an attack on Canada, whose representative is scheduled to speak at the United Nations later on Tuesday.

As a result of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s statement last week that India may have been involved in the June murder of a Canadian citizen in a Vancouver suburb, relations between the two countries have reached their lowest point in years.

Hardeep Singh Nijjar, 45, was murdered by masked assailants, but Canada has not yet provided any public evidence of Indian involvement in the murder. India had designated him as a terrorist because he led the remnants of a once-powerful movement to establish an independent Sikh homeland, Khalistan.


India’s top diplomat avoided addressing his country’s dispute with Canada over the assassination of a Sikh separatist leader.

The Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs dismissed the allegation as “absurd” and accused Canada of harboring “terrorists and extremists.” It also asserted that the allegations were politically motivated, indicating that Trudeau sought domestic support from the Sikh diaspora.

“Such unsubstantiated allegations seek to divert attention away from Khalistani terrorists and extremists, who have found refuge in Canada and continue to threaten India’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the ministry said in a statement released last week.

However, they have long accused Canada of allowing Sikh separatists, including Nijjar, unfettered reign.

Even though the active insurgency ended decades ago, the Modi administration has warned that Sikh separatists are attempting a comeback. New Delhi has urged nations such as Canada, where Sikhs account for more than 2% of the population, to do more to prevent a separatist revival.

After the G20 summit, Canada’s allegation obscured India’s diplomatic moment. Jaishankar sought to refocus attention on his country’s ambitions in the international arena, noting that India is the world’s most populous nation and a growing economic superpower.

“When we aspire to be a leading power, it is not for self-promotion, but to assume more responsibility and make more contributions,” he explained. “The goals we have set for ourselves will distinguish us from those who rose before us.”

Spain Charges Pop Singer Shakira With Tax Evasion For A Second Time And Demands More Than $7 Million

Avatar for Kiara Grace




BARCELONA, SPAIN — Spanish prosecutors have charged Colombian pop sensation Shakira with failing to pay 6.7 million euros ($7.1 million) in tax on her 2018 earnings, authorities announced Tuesday. This is Spain’s most recent fiscal accusation against the Colombian singer.

Prosecutors in Barcelona alleged in a statement that Shakira used an offshore company based in a tax refuge to avoid paying the tax.

According to the statement, she has been notified of the allegations in Miami, where she resides.

Shakira is already scheduled to be tried in Barcelona on November 20 for a separate case involving her residence between 2012 and 2014. Prosecutors allege she neglected to pay 14.5 million euros in taxes in this instance.

Prosecutors in Barcelona have asserted that the Grammy winner spent more than fifty percent of the 2012-2014 period in Spain and thus should have paid taxes in the country, even though her official residence was in the Bahamas.


Spanish prosecutors have charged Colombian pop sensation Shakira with failing to pay 6.7 million euros ($7.1 million) in tax on her 2018 earnings.

Last July, Spanish tax officials launched a new investigation against Shakira. Prosecutors have decided to file charges after reviewing the evidence compiled over the past two months. No trial date has been set.

Llorente y Cuenca, the public relations firm previously managing Shakira’s affairs, had no immediate comment.

Last July, it was stated that the artist had “always complied with the law and followed the advice of her financial advisors.”

Since she began dating the now-retired football player Gerard Pique, Shakira, whose full name is Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, has been linked to Spain. The couple, who have two children, resided in Barcelona until the end of their 11-year relationship last year.

In the past decade, Spain’s tax authorities have cracked down on football superstars such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo for not paying their entire tax obligations. These athletes were found guilty of tax evasion but were spared prison time due to a provision that enables judges to forego sentences of less than two years for first-time offenders.

Toymaker Lego Will Stick To Its Quest To Find Sustainable Materials Despite Failed Recycle Attempt In 2023

Avatar for Kiara Grace




COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Lego stated on Monday that it remains committed to its quest to find sustainable materials to reduce carbon emissions despite the failure of an experiment to use recycled bottles. Lego is the world’s largest toy manufacturer.

After more than two years of testing, Lego “decided not to proceed” with producing its trademark colorful bricks from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottles because “the material did not reduce carbon emissions.”

Nonetheless, the toymaker remains “fully committed to making Lego bricks from sustainable materials by 2032,” according to the company’s website.

Two years ago, the private company that manufactures bricks from oil-derived plastic began researching a potential transition to recycled plastic bottles made of PET plastic, which does not degrade in quality when recycled.

The company stated that it had invested “more than $1.2 billion in sustainability initiatives” to transition to more sustainable materials and reduce carbon emissions by 37% by 2032.

The company reported that it was “currently testing and developing Lego bricks made from a range of alternative sustainable materials, including other recycled plastics and plastics made from alternative sources such as e-methanol.”


Nonetheless, the toymaker remains “fully committed to making Lego bricks from sustainable materials by 2032,” according to the company’s website.

E-methanol, also known as green methanol, is composed of residual carbon dioxide and hydrogen and is produced by splitting water molecules using renewable energy.

The company said it would continue to use bio-polypropylene, the sustainable and biological variant of polyethylene — a plastic used in everything from consumer and food packaging to tires — for elements in Lego sets such as leaves, trees and other accessories.

Long-term, “we believe that this will encourage increased production of more sustainable raw materials, such as recycled oils, and help support our transition to sustainable materials,” the report stated.

The company was founded by Ole Kirk Kristiansen in 1932. The name comprises the Danish words leg and godt, meaning “play well.” The brand name was created without knowledge of the Latin Lego, meaning “I assemble.”
