Former National Security Adviser John Bolton has warned that the indictment of former President Donald Trump could act as a powerful “rocket fuel” for his 2024 campaign and propel him to the White House. In an interview with CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, Bolton stated that if Trump is acquitted or the case is dismissed due to lack of legal sufficiency, it will be a major boost to his campaign. Bolton also noted that if Trump is convicted of a crime before the campaign ends, it will have a very different impact on people.

Trump’s opponents have been warned that his indictment could help his campaign, and the news has already had a major impact. A poll from Trump’s pollster John McLaughlin showed that more voters in both primary and general elections say they would likely vote for Trump after his indictment. In addition, the Trump campaign raised an astonishing $4 million within the first 24 hours of the news breaking.
The indictment against Trump is believed to be related to alleged ‘hush money’ payments of $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Trump has blasted New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan and District Attorney Alvin Bragg on Truth Social, claiming that it is impossible for him to get a fair trial and that Bragg is backed by George Soros.
It is clear that the indictment of Donald Trump has had a major impact on his campaign, and it is likely that he will use this to his advantage in the upcoming election. While some may see this as a negative, conservative republicans view it as an opportunity for Trump to prove his innocence and show that he was the victim of a politically motivated prosecution. It remains to be seen how this situation will play out in the coming months, but one thing is certain: Donald Trump will use this indictment as rocket fuel to propel him to the White House in 2024.
