TAKEOFF,

Trump’s Sentencing Put Off Until September,

The judge in former President Donald Trump’s hush money case approved delaying his sentencing, originally set for next week, until at least September 18.

The presiding judge agreed to consider a recent Supreme Court ruling on presidential immunity, which ruled on whether presidents could be prosecuted for their official actions while in office.

The delay pushes the sentencing back until well after the Republican National Convention, which starts on July 15, where Trump is expected to be formally nominated for President.

Questions Grow Over Biden’s Health,

The fallout from President Biden’s disastrous debate performance last week continued Tuesday as pundits and Democratic lawmakers questioned his health and cognitive abilities.

In an attempt to quell the outcry, President Biden is scheduled to be interviewed by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Friday and will hold a press conference during the NATO summit next week.
