Trump’s crime spree spoils key Republican platform

Leading up to the 2022 midterm, the media devoted gobs of ink to the Republican fantasy that crime would be a major driver of the “red wave” that ultimately wasn’t.

If Republicans, particularly in swing states and districts, have been plotting their path to gin up crime fears again this cycle, they now have a major hurdle: Donald Trump.

Trump, facing the prospect of jail time as he combats a damning criminal indictment, has little choice but to turn the world on its head in true Orwellian fashion in order to convince his cultists that up is down, the world is flat, and he is a perfectly innocent man who is shockingly facing yet another criminal indictment.

“It’s a political prosecution like something straight out of a fascist or communist nation,” Trump told supporters Tuesday evening at a Bedminster fundraiser following his arraignment. “If the communists get away with this, it won’t stop with me. They won’t hesitate to ramp up their persecution of Christians, pro-life activists, parents attending school board meetings, and even future Republican candidates.”
