In the 2024 presidential campaign, questions are mounting again about former President Donald Trump’s candidacy after he turned himself in to authorities in Georgia on election-rigging charges last week. However, polls show that Mr. Trump continues to have a deep lead over his rivals in the Republican primaries.
Days after appearing in an Atlanta jail, former President Donald Trump continues to be in the spotlight around the world because of his political ambitions.
Former President Trump currently faces 91 criminal charges stemming from the four indictments against him. One of the Republican candidates for president, the former governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, in an interview for the show “This Week” of the ABC channel, suggested that Mr. Trump is a heavy burden for his party.
“Most of my rivals believe that there can be a convicted felon as the Republican Party’s candidate for president and that they support him and that he can win the election. But I think this is impossible,” he said.
Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, who along with former Gov. Christie participated in their party’s first debate last week, cited former President Trump’s accomplishments during an interview on “Meet the Press” the NBC channel.
“I want to continue what former President Trump started. To tell you the truth, I will invite him to become an advisor. We don’t need to learn the same lessons. I want to continue where he left off,” he says.
Mr. Trump’s legal troubles will not be part of President Joe Biden’s campaign strategy for the 2024 election, Mr. Biden’s campaign co-chairman, Cedric Richmond, told ABC.
“But what I will say about President Biden and Vice President Harris is that they have always focused on the American people. So they will continue working to reduce costs, raise wages and strengthen the middle class,” he said.
But as President Biden’s age continues to worry Democratic voters, independent Sen. Bernie Sanders, in an interview on NBC, suggested returning attention to the policies at stake.
“Do you believe that women have the right to control their bodies? The president has been strong on this issue. Do you think climate change is real? Or do you agree with the Republicans that this problem does not exist?” asked Senator Sanders.
Meanwhile, former President Trump, who has denied all charges, is trying to use the criminal investigation to advance his presidential campaign. Part of this effort is the use of his photograph taken by the Atlanta prison authority, which is being placed on t-shirts, mugs and other items for fundraising purposes./VOA
