Biden Says Trump’s Trial Was Fair

President Joe Biden is insisting that former President Donald Trump got a fair trial in his hush money case despite multiple claims that the trial was politically motivated and anything but fair.

Biden weighed in on the trial during Thursday’s episode of ABC’s “World News Tonight” when anchor David Muir brought up the guilty verdict handed to Trump by a Manhattan jury on May 30.

“You did address Donald Trump and the guilty verdicts on 34 felony counts before the American people. You told Americans to respect the jury and the outcome of this case. You were at a campaign fund-raiser, and you told the room a convicted felon is now seeking the office of a presidency. You called it disturbing. What do you think the American people should make of it? Muir asked.

In response, Biden stated, “That’s for the public to decide. One thing for certain is stop undermining the rule of law, stop undermining the institutions. That is what this whole effort it. MAGA Republicans are coming out saying this was a fix, this is a jury, a judge set up to get Trump. There is no evidence of that.”

“He’s trying to undermine it. Look, he got a fair trial. The jury spoke like they speak in all cases and it should be respected,” he added.

The news of Trump’s conviction met joy in the hearts of Biden and his allies, as the president wasted no time before referring to his 2024 political rival as a “convicted felon.”

During a fundraising event in Connecticut on Monday, the president said, “For the first time in American history, a former president that is a convicted felon is now seeking the office of the presidency.”

“But as disturbing as that is, more damaging is the all-out assault Donald Trump is making on the American system of justice. Something snapped in him when he lost in 2020,” Biden said. “He can’t accept he lost and it is literally driving him crazy. He is clearly unhinged. Now after his criminal convictions, it’s clear he’s worried about preserving his freedoms,” he added.

The Biden-Harris campaign has also not hidden the camp’s joy at the news of Trump’s guilty verdict, as it released a statement shortly after the verdict came in, gloating that “no one is above the law.”

“Donald Trump has always mistakenly believed he would never face consequences for breaking the law for his own personal gain. But today’s verdict does not change the fact that the American people face a simple reality. There is still only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: at the ballot box. Convicted felon or not, Trump will be the Republican nominee for president,” the statement from Biden Campaign Communications Director Michael Tyler added.
