In recent developments, President Joe Biden has finally spoken on Trump’s guilty verdict. The Democratic presidential candidate was one of the most silent voices during the former president’s criminal trial. Following the guilty verdict, Donald Trump became the first president to be convicted of a felony.

The Trump hush money trial started on Monday, April 15, 2024, taking place in Manhattan, New York. Trump was charged in court for lying about making payments to Stormy Daniel before the 2016 election.

On Thursday, May 30, 2024, Trump was found guilty on all 34 counts by Judge Juan Merchan after deliberating with the jury. While the felony trial was ongoing, Biden never commented on the issue, not even while Trump was saying the charges were politically motivated. 

As a result, Trump becomes the first president in history to face a criminal conviction. Despite Trump’s criminal conviction, he is still permitted to run for president. July 11, 2024, has been set as a new date for Trump’s sentencing. However, subsequently, after the verdict was declared, Biden issued a statement online in regards to the trial.

Biden wrote on his page that there was only one way to keep Trump away from the presidency, and that was at the election. He further issued a statement regarding his reelection, asking for donations to his campaign.

Although Biden did not use the verdict as some talking point to make himself look good, the message was in fact on time. However, as Biden and his family are in Delaware to mourn the anniversary of Beau Biden’s death, it is possible he will be less excited about the news.

Beau Biden was the first son of Joe Biden and Jill Biden. He sadly passed away on May 30th, 2015, making 2024 the ninth anniversary of his passing.

POLL — Should Donald J. Trump Be Allowed to Run for Office?

While Biden did not further press on the matter, he did address some of Trump’s criticisms.  Biden accused Trump of threatening U.S. democracy shortly after the latter claimed he would accept election results unless they met his requirements. Additionally, Biden claimed Trump was now attacking the nation’s judicial system after claiming his legal woes were politically motivated.

The director of communications for the Biden-Harris campaign, Michael Tyler, issued a statement shortly after the verdict was issued. Tyler said that from what is happening in New York, it is obvious that no one is above the law. He continued that Trump has always assumed he was above the law, acting as though there was no consequence to his actions.

He continued that the election was the only way to ensure that Trump didn’t become the country’s president. Tyler added that it doesn’t matter if Trump has a criminal record; he remains the Republican candidate for the coming election. 

The statement ended with a second term for Trump, which means anarchy, taking away American freedoms, and fomenting political violence, and the American people will reject it this November.
