The Guardian: The specter of a Trump comeback
Despite a US court has convicted Trump of sexually assaulting a woman in the 1990s, the journey is still long – it may take several months – until the Republican presidential candidate is chosen, Trump appears to be in good control of his party, as many see him as the most likely candidate to represent the Republican Party in the upcoming elections.
The verdict against the former US president – who convicted him of sexually assaulting the writer E. Jane Carroll in a New York store in the nineties of the twentieth century – seems to strengthen Trump’s position, contrary to what was expected that, like any other politician, his journey with politics may end if prove these accusations.
It “makes me want to vote for him twice,” US Senator Tommy Tuberville of Alabama said of the jury’s decision, making clear the view held by millions of Republicans that this ruling – and any outcome of further legal action taken against the former president – only proves that elites They aim to harm him.
These people’s position is similar to their position following Trump’s conviction last March of paying porn star Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence about a sexual relationship she claims he had with her earlier.
At the time, most Republicans suggested that these judicial rulings were politicized, considering Trump “a martyr of the deep liberal state and that the blows that would kill him give him more strength”.
The danger of Trump’s accession to power again, according to the Guardian, lies in several matters represented in a radical change in the current policies of the Biden administration.
If Trump wins the 2024 US presidential elections, Ukraine should prepare to end the US support it receives in all its forms.
Americans should also be prepared to watch the United States default on its debt because Republican policies refuse to increase the debt ceiling.
Donald Trump impeachment trial, the former president misses the distinction between a photo of the woman who accuses him of rape and his ex-wife.
The United States also faces – if Trump wins – the danger of assuming a president who intends to complete what he started during his previous presidency, which is to break the thorn of all institutions that may stand between him and what he wants, whether through the ballot box or through the courts, according to the Guardian.
“This is what you’re going to get… A presidency divorced from reality and from the constitutional order,” Mitt Romney said, the rare dissenting Republican voice among the party’s members.
