Opposition to corruption is driving voters to 2024 presidential candidate Donald Trump, following the politically-charged indictment and arrest of the 2024 Republican frontrunner, former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich says.
Trump was arrested and arraigned this week on 34 felony counts charged by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, who had campaigned on the promise that he would find a way to prosecute Trump.
However, the Left’s corrupt, relentless attacks on Trump are actually making it more likely that he will become only the second U.S. president to be elected a second time after having left the White House, Gingrich said in an interview with The Epoch Times.
As with the election of Democrat Grover Cleveland in 1892, after four years out of office, opposition to government corruption is driving voters to Trump, Gingrich explained, quoting Democrat Edward S. Bragg, who campaigned for Cleveland:
“[T]hey love him most of all for the enemies he has made.”
The prosecution has made it more difficult to attack Trump, because Americans, and even anti-Trump Republicans, don’t want to be perceived as “siding with the corrupt establishment,” Gingrich told The Times.
Leftists are willing to abuse the law, because they fear Trump is “an enormous threat” to the corrupt system they’ve created, Gingrich said.
Gingrich likened the indictment of Trump to the government corruption that contributed to the decline of Rome.
The only way to stop the corrupt establishment and end their attacks on anyone who dissents is to vote them out of office, Gingrich concluded.
