Trump’s conviction has sparked a battle within the Republican Party. Politicians must choose whether to defend Trump or America’s legal system.

Larry Hogan’s criticism of Trump led to backlash, showing that siding against Trump can be politically deadly. Many Republicans publicly defend Trump, likening his trial to a “show trial” in communist countries.

This aligns with Trump’s belief that American institutions are rigged against him. Criticizing Trump risks alienating his strong base of supporters within the party.

While Trump retains support from prominent Republicans, voter loyalty may waver, especially if he’s convicted of a felony.

This dynamic could shape future elections.
