Former United States President Donald Trump (2017-2021), who is running for the Republican primary in the 2024 election, boasted about it this Tuesday its good results in the pollswho, despite various charges, continue to call him a favorite over other conservative candidates.
During a rally in front of veterans in Windham, New Hampshire, Trump explained that he likes to consult the polls whenever there is an indictment against him: “Because with one more indictment, I think the election will be decided,” he said wryly .
Former President collects three criminal charges in New York, Florida and Washington DC in the case of bribing porn actress Stormy Daniels, one of the secret documents he illegally took from the White House, and one of his alleged attempts to change the outcome of the 2020 election.
Adding to those cases could be a fourth criminal indictment in Georgia, where Trump is expected to be formally indicted by a grand jury at any time over his alleged efforts to change the outcome of that key 2020 election.
Despite these complaints Trump continues to lead the polls for Republican presidential candidateswith 53% of voting intentions, well ahead of the second opponent, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, with 15%, according to the FiveThirtyEight website, which calculates the average of the polls.
According to this site Should Trump face President Joe Biden in a presidential election, the result would be very closewith the Democrat emerging victorious by a single percentage point, despite the Republican’s lead two weeks ago.
At his rally today, Trump reiterated his allegations against what he calls “the corrupt Joe Biden,” whom he says is behind a political persecution and allegations against him because of “the incredible numbers” he’s taking in polls .
What was his strategy? The former president appeared before the audience as the victim of a Biden-orchestrated conspiracy to silence his complaints about fraud in the 2020 election, even though he has not produced a single piece of evidence and the courts have dismissed all claims filed at the time.
He regretted not being able to participate in the Iowa primary or the 2024 New Hampshire primary because of his legal troubles: “Because I’m going to sit in court for nonsense because his Attorney General (von Biden) indicted me,” Trump said, although no date has yet been set for the start of the trial over his alleged attempt to reverse the outcome of the 2020 election.
On the other hand, Trump fiercely proposed against his main Republican opponent, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, for believing so He betrayed him by running for the primary and asserted that he himself was the architect who won his party’s nomination for governor of that state.
DeSantis “I don’t like it because I let him choose (…), he came to me because he needed help,” emphasized the former president.
He opined that DeSantis made a mistake running for the presidential primary and that he should have waited until 2028, in addition to darting him: “It takes a certain personality,” alluding to his opponent’s criticism of his lack of character and skills. in one-on-one interactions.
Otherwise, Trump made a tour of the public places in his speechessuch as the measures he says he will take against gender-affirming treatments and against transsexuals, but also against migrants, whom he portrayed as criminals, among other things.
He literally did all this and was sweating due to the high temperature in the room, “110 degrees” Fahrenheit (43 degrees Celsius), the ex-president assured with a sweat-soaked forehead, which he took advantage of mock the mediawho predicted that he would be said to “didn’t look well”.
