CNN is under fire from conservative Republicans after hosting a town hall featuring former President Donald Trump. A focus group of Republican voters who watched the event voiced their disapproval with the moderator’s line of questioning, claiming that the network “pressed” Trump about his 2020 electoral loss to President Joe Biden instead of asking him about his future plans for re-election. In response to the questioning, Trump was able to present his side of the story about lawsuits, investigations, and perceived wrongdoings by former allies, ultimately landing a blow to the liberal media.

During the town hall, the Republican audience overwhelmingly supported Trump’s claims that he won the 2020 presidential election. This comes as no surprise to conservatives, as it is clear that the mainstream media has a bias against Trump and his supporters. CNN earned heavy criticism for its strategic error of stacking the audience with Trump supporters who cheered his truthful assertions.

Despite facing prosecution on multiple fronts, Trump has seen a succession of positive developments for his campaign in recent weeks, and he remains the frontrunner for the Republican nomination in 2024. Even more encouraging for Trump’s team, his polling numbers have skyrocketed among likely GOP voters since March. These voters are clearly getting behind a man who stands up for what he believes and is willing to fight tooth and nail for the American people.
The ongoing felony charges from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg notwithstanding, President Trump has solidified his position in the hearts and minds of conservative voters. He is the beacon of hope for a brighter future and a true leader among his peers. The Republican party must rally behind him if they want to secure another conservative victory in the next election cycle.
