Mercedes Schlapp explained this week why the many indictments aimed against President Donald Trump are “backfiring” on the Democrats as the 2024 presidential election inches closer, pointing out that Americans have a “sense that this is election interference coming from the Democrats’ side.”
Schlapp was the former White House Director of Strategic Communications and is now the host of “America UnCanceled” on CPAC NOW.
Her newest comments were made during an interview with Newsmax, where she discussed the 45th president’s hurricane of legal woes ahead of the 2024 Republican primary election next year.
“You see how Joe Biden is being treated, and more and more questions are being raised about his ties to Hunter Biden and the foreign nationals – the businesses that Hunter Biden was involved in, and whether Joe Biden got paid as vice president. These questions continue to be raised and yet the Department of Justice seems to be moving very slowly in anything dealing with the Biden family, yet when it comes to Donald Trump, there’s a clear obsession…the whole focus is on Donald Trump and these indictments.”
Schlapp also said that the indictments were “backfiring” as the media and America’s levers of justice continue to dig into chasing after Trump while simultaneously ignoring Joe Biden’s numerous scandals.
She added that there was “barely any coverage on, for example, Devon Archer, and his testimony and the Hunter Biden ties with the foreign nationals and so it really raises this question of how these two different presidents are being treated and how the Department of Justice has REALLY become unhinged and focused on taking down Donald Trump.”
Nationwide, President Donald Trump’s position as the frontrunner in the Republican primary election has rocketed upward, increasing his lead with every indictment. This week, new data from Cygnal Polling & Analytics found that the president held a 42-point lead over GOP candidate and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy.
This was the first national Republican poll where Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., fell to third place with just 10 percent of support. Ramaswamy won 11 percent.
