Karoline Leavitt: Democrats’ Efforts to Label Trump a 'Convicted Felon' Will Fail

 June 1, 2024

Karoline Leavitt, the national press secretary for Donald Trump's campaign, speaks out against the Democratic strategy.

Karoline Leavitt criticized Democrats for labeling Donald Trump as a "convicted felon" in an attempt to deter voter support.

Karoline Leavitt appeared on Breitbart News on Saturday, where she provided insights into former President Donald Trump's recent conviction. Trump was convicted on all 34 counts in a Manhattan business records trial.

Leavitt vehemently criticized the Democrats, accusing them of strategically pursuing the case to tarnish Trump's image by branding him a felon. She believes this tactic will not sway the electorate away from Trump.

Conviction Won't Deter Trump's Voter Base

According to Leavitt, the conviction does not address critical issues such as inflation, border security problems, or international conflicts like the war in Gaza. These, she argues, are more pressing to the American people than the legal woes of Donald Trump.

She further claimed that the Democrats are using the term "convicted felon" as a weapon against Trump as Election Day draws nearer. Leavitt argues that this strategy will ultimately backfire.

Here is a statement by Karoline Leavitt:

This was a part of the Democrats’ political strategy to bring this case forward. And anyone who doesn’t see that is blind. I mean, that is exactly what they want to do, Matt, to call President Trump a convicted felon.

The Real Issues: Inflation and Border Crisis

Leavitt emphasized that Trump's conviction does not enhance President Joe Biden's capabilities or address any substantial issues Americans face today. She predicted that voters would see through the Democrats' superficial tactics and focus instead on the actual issues.

Leavitt expressed her opinion about the broader consequences of the Democrats' focus. She argued:

This conviction does not make Joe Biden any stronger. It does not make Joe Biden any more competent. It doesn’t fix inflation. It doesn’t fix the border crisis that is wreaking havoc in every American community across this country. It’s not going to stop the war in Israel, in Gaza. People are hurting in this country and they care about inflation. They care about the rising cost of gas rent and groceries. They don’t want to see illegal immigrants storming our border anymore. And Joe Biden, rather than focusing on solving the problems that he has created, has allowed America to go further into a hellhole while he has brought this prosecution against President Trump.

Leavitt argued that while the label "convicted felon" might resonate within certain political circles, it does not resonate with ordinary Americans' everyday concerns. She believes that concerns about inflation, the cost of living, and border security are far more significant to voters.

Concerns About Trial Fairness

"And this trial was unfair, and they see that," said Leavitt, voicing a widespread perception among Trump supporters that the trial conditions were prejudiced against him.

Leavitt's statements highlight a deep-seated belief among Trump's campaign team and followers that the trial was part of a broader political strategy rather than a straightforward legal proceeding. This perception might energize Trump's base as the election approaches.

In conclusion, Leavitt's remarks encapsulate a key narrative of Trump's campaign: that his legal issues are a diversion from the real problems facing Americans, engineered by his political adversaries. Whether this narrative will sway the electorate remains to be seen as Election Day approaches.
