Trump Convicted, But Undeterred: Runs for President Despite Felony 

Former President Trump convicted, but undeterred in 2024 presidential bid. Felony won't stop campaign.

Donald Trump is the first person to be impeached twice from the presidency of the United States of America, and the same man has not abandoned his drive to be president again. Described as a criminal by the media and convicted on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records; however, Trump still retains the constitutional right to run for the presidency in the year 2024.  

United States Constitution has no high standards when it comes to the presidency; to become the president of the United States, one only must be a natural-born citizen, have 35 years of age, and must have lived in the United States for a minimum of 14 years. Currently, no law requires people with a criminal record not to obtain employment with the state or any other company.  

As of July 11, Trump will have been charged on the specified counts and, therefore, will not receive a prison term. It is scary that New York will always charge a form of falsifying business records offense even if it does not jail first-time offenders.  

Trump says that the procedure is going to be appealed; the penalties, thus, may not be enacted before the election. If he is to be elected, then he must be able to decline federal cases against him as well as slow down the state actions against him till after the term. The former president has prepared his followers to ignore the conviction as a politically motivated travesty known as a “witch hunt.  

“He remains the frontrunner in the polls in the Republican presidential primaries. This is quite unexpected yet fascinating: Trump is a convicted felon, and this is the first time in American history a major presidential candidate was a convict. However, it is yet to be evident that the verdict will shape the candidates’ possibility in the forthcoming 2024 election.
