(RepublicanDaily.org) – Political analysts stated that the Trump campaign is using the former president’s arraignment as a means to push the Trump 2024 presidential election campaign. On April 4, Trump’s “allies, aides, and club members” met at the resort of Mar-a-Lago, Palm Beach, Florida, for a Trump campaign event, which political analysts dubbed an “arraignment party,” Politico reported.
The Mar-A-Lago event followed hours after Trump was arrested and arraigned in Manhattan for his open legal case in the state of New York, Politico reported. The campaign event was reportedly decked with cameras and felt “like a MAGA movie set,” political commentators wrote.
Trump gave a speech at Mar-A-Lago following his arraignment by the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
In addition to his statements at Mar-A-Lago, Trump also took to Truth Social to denounce the case and push forward his campaign. The Trump 2024 campaign and Trump issued a statement and a call to action, reasoning that Trump’s legal issues have only made the MAGA movement “stronger,” a sponsored post from Donald Trump’s Truth Social stated on April 4.
The Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg historically indicted former President Donald Trump earlier in April with “136 felony counts” of document fraud. However, as his case drew great attention, it also drew legal scrutiny, including from liberal legal experts and critics of Donald Trump, Politico reported. Trump plans to appeal the case along with other legal issues.
The Trump campaign received another boost when Trump won his defamation lawsuit against former adult film star Stormy Daniels. Daniels has been ordered to pay Trump legal fees, CNN reported.
However, the Trump campaign’s use of the arraignment has received some pushback from Republican influencers. In his speech, he made comments about the, in his view,“Trump-hating” judge. Trump likewise made comments about the judge’s family. This drew a response from Fox News morning host, Steve Doocy, who “admonished” the former president for making statements that directly addressed the judge’s family, The Hill reported.
