Biden camp blasts 'unhinged' Trump response to verdict and accuses him of 'sowing chaos'

The Biden-Harris 2024 campaign responded Friday to former President Donald Trump's “unhinged” speech from Trump Tower, accusing him of being “confused” and “desperate” while “sowing chaos.”

“America has just witnessed a confused, desperate and defeated Donald Trump ramble over his own personal grievances and lies about the American justice system, leaving everyone watching with one clear conclusion: this man cannot be President of the United States” , Biden-Harris 2024 Communications Director Michael Tyler said in a statement. “Unhinged by his 2020 election loss and stemming from his criminal convictions, Trump is consumed by his own thirst for revenge and retribution. He thinks these elections are about him. But that's not true. It's about the American people: lowering their costs, protecting their freedoms, defending their democracy.

“That's what Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are fighting for. Donald Trump is sowing chaos, attacking the rule of law and fighting for the only thing in the world he cares about: Donald Trump.”

The campaign's comments came after Trump delivered lengthy remarks from Trump Tower in New York on Friday morning following his unprecedented trial, resulting in the conviction of 34 counts of falsifying company records.

Trump, the Republican Party's presumptive nominee for the 2024 elections, said he wished he would testify in his criminal trial, although it appears he was advised otherwise.

“I would have testified. I wanted to testify,” Trump said from the podium.

“The theory is that you never testify, because as soon as you testify – whoever, if it was George Washington – don't testify, because they'll catch you saying something slightly wrong, and they'll charge you with perjury.”

'But I didn't care. “I wanted to,” Trump repeated.

Trump was sued by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg on 34 cases of falsification of corporate documents. Trump pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 11, just four days before the Republican National Convention kicks off in Milwaukee. Each count carries a maximum prison sentence of four years, leaving Trump facing a total of 136 years behind bars.

Following the verdict, support from Republican lawmakers poured in on social media.

'Today is a shameful day in American history' Speaker of the House of Representatives Mike Johnson, R-La., said in a statement. “The Democrats cheered as they convicted the leader of the opposing party on ridiculous charges based on the testimony of a disbarred, convicted felon.”

GOP lawmakers both chambers have sided with Trump and called on their colleagues to support the former president in last November's elections. More than a hundred Republicans in the House of Representatives and more than twenty Republicans in the Senate – including the Republican Senate Conference – supported Trump.
