Trump Says Yes to Appearing on Wrestler Logan Paul’s Podcast

US President Donald Trump and First Lady of the US Melania Trump arrive for a working dinner at The Parc du Cinquantenaire in Brussels, Belgium on Jul. 11, 2018.

As the summer season of 2024 enters its prime period, the minds of many Americans are most likely focused on annual summer festivities like swimming in the pool, enjoying ice cream or summer treats, or  an evening on the boardwalk down the shore along the coast near the nation’s oceans. Despite this, the reality remains that the United States is in a truly polarized and tense political climate. There are four and a half months that separate the country and its citizens from the upcoming General November elections. The nation will have to choose a new president or decide whether the incumbent deserves a second term. Currently, that contest is projected to be between Donald trump, the 45th former president of the United States, a businessman, a reality TV star and a real estate mobile from New York City and the incumbent career politician Joe Biden. 

Most polls project a very close battle between Trump and Biden, and a recent report by the hill alleges that Trump has only a two-point lead nationally speaking. This is unsurprising, as the nation is truly divided perhaps to a degree not witnessed since the civil war. Most people unfortunately are unlikely to change their opinions on either man this late into the cycle and with such a tense environment existing. The election is most likely to be decided by several crucial swing States, like Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and others. Trump has been projected to be leading in the states, or at least several of them, but the future is quite uncertain, and anything can happen between now and November.

Trump remains a polarizing figure, who is well known for his no filters approach to speaking and his bombastic oratory skills. Recently, he agreed to appear on Logan Paul’s podcast. Paul is a wrestler and a popular figure who won a WWE title. Paul called the experience a “glow up” for him.
