Tommy Tuberville, from Alabama. “It makes me wish to vote for him twice.” Which is an okay factor to do, in the event you’re a Republican. “They’re going to do something they will to maintain him from successful. It ain’t gonna work … persons are gonna see by way of the traces; a New York jury, he had no probability.”
Hating on New York is their theme. “I don’t know the information,” the opposite Florida Man, Sen. Rick Scott, stated earlier than assuming that in fact Trump didn’t do it. “It’s a New York jury, too,” he added. Trump caddy Lindsey Graham of South Carolina added: “With regards to Donald Trump, the New York authorized system is off the rails.”
No Republican stated they wouldn’t help Trump in 2024. Even those who don’t like him. Utah Sen. Mitt Romney wouldn’t say it instantly. “I hope the jury of the American folks attain the identical conclusion: we want a special nominee to be the nominee for president,” Romney stated. “He’s in no place to be the president of the US.”

Trump wasn’t mistaken again in 2016: “I may stand in the midst of Fifth Avenue and shoot any person, and I would not lose any voters, OK?” he instructed a bunch of supporters. He wouldn’t lose Republicans in Congress, both. “It is, like, unbelievable.” That’s true, too. Not in a great way.
