Journalist Charlie LeDuff was taken aback by former Democratic governor of New York Andrew Cuomo on Thursday when he talked about former President Donald Trump’s indictments and future polling results.
Cuomo stated that it is ineffective for the Democrats to seem to be hoping that Trump’s indictments will undermine his presidential campaign.
He maintained that Trump’s run-ins with the law is benefiting his campaign.
“Every time you indict the guy, he goes up in the polls,” Cuomo said during the interview.
Before the 2024 General Presidential Election, LeDuff questioned Cuomo about his belief that the Democrats were implementing a “coordinated strategy” to “neutralize” Trump.
“I don’t think it was a coordinated strategy. I think they believe well with all these indictments that he is getting that he is not going to be viable as a candidate. Except the American people don’t believe that the indictments aren’t political. They believe the justice system is playing politics — the American people believe that,” Cuomo said in response.
“Seventy-six percent of the American people don’t agree on the color of the flag, but 76% of the American people agree that the indictment was politically influenced,” he continued.
“And that’s why indicting him time after time after time, and yes it looks like they’re a majority — of the prosecutors are Democrats and maybe that’s not a coincidence. But people just don’t trust the justice system.” he concluded later on.
