The Supreme Court Just Set a Time Bomb to Explode Under President Biden

Senior White House officials, as well as Trump himself, have been briefed on the numbers, which they are hoping could portend gains in some critical demographics, including in the suburbs where the president has been bleeding support, the sources noted.

Some of those who corresponded with the president have young children and expressed reservations about sending them back during a still-raging pandemic.
