Donald Trump was found guilty Thursday of 34 felony counts in his criminal trial over hush money payments.

This is the first time that a former U.S. president has been tried or convicted in a criminal case.

It is also the first of Trump’s four alleged crimes to go to trial, so does it jeopardize his run for the presidency?

Despite the conviction, Trump remains legally eligible to run for president, as the Constitution does not prohibit felons from running for public office.

Joe Biden reacts to the Trump verdict

President Biden took advantage of the moment to urge Americans to vote in a message on his official  X account.

“There is only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: at the ballot box. Donate to our campaign today.” he posted.

Biden’s campaign declared that Trump’s conviction shows that «no one is above the law.»

Trump still faces three more trials, but the New York case could be the only one that concludes before the November election.

“Today in New York we saw that no one is above the law,” the Biden-Harris campaign communications director, Michael Tyler, said in a statement.

«But today’s verdict does not change the fact that the American people face a simple reality. There is still only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: at the polls,” he reiterated.

This underlines the importance of the verdict. The legal and historical implications of Trump’s conviction are clear.

The political consequences are less certain, however, given its potential to reinforce, rather than alter, long-held opinions about Trump.

The trial captured national attention and highlighted deep divisions within U.S. society, according to infobae.

Many see the verdict as a vindication of the judicial system’s ability to hold powerful individuals accountable.

Some members of the Republican Party expressed concern about the fairness of the judicial process. Others privately acknowledge the potential impact on the party’s prospects for 2024.

For Democrats, the conviction represents a moment of validation. They emphasize the importance of upholding the rule of law, regardless of their political affiliations.
