Biden campaign warns: 'Convicted felon or not,' Trump could still be president

Washington – The Biden campaign warned that former President Donald Trump conviction in a 'hush money' case does not prevent him from winning another term in the White House from a legal point of view.

“There is still only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: through the ballot box. Convicted felon or not, Trump will be the Republican nominee for president,” Michael Tyler, the campaign's communications director, said in a statement Thursday.

Trump became the first former US president to be convicted of a crime when a New York jury found he broke the law by falsifying business records to cover up a crime. Payment of $130,000 to adult film star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election. He was found guilty on all 34 counts.

The Biden campaign said the verdict shows that “no one is above the law” but that it also “doesn't change the fact that the American people are faced with a simple reality.”

“The threat Trump poses to our democracy has never been greater. He is waging an increasingly unhinged campaign of revenge and retaliation, vowing to be a dictator 'on day one' and calling for the 'termination' of our Constitution so he can regain power and retain power,” the statement said. declaration. “A second Trump term means chaos, stripping away American freedoms and fueling political violence – and the American people will reject this in November.”

The Biden campaign is raising money for the message, telling supporters that Trump's conviction could be a boon for the former president.

“Donald Trump's supporters are excited and likely to set fundraising records for his campaign,” said a text message to supporters. “That's money he will use to try to return to the White House to carry out his threats of revenge and retaliation against his political opponents. So as the MAGA Right comes to the rescue of Trump, Joe Biden – and those who care about democracy – you need.”

President Biden has not yet responded to the verdict.

“We respect the rule of law and have no additional comment,” Ian Sams, spokesman for the White House counsel, said in a statement.
