    Ex-President Donald Trump has been lately convincted for all the 34 court counts of the actress Daniels hush money trial.                                    Will Trump go to prison? Is there not an appeal from the New York Supreme Court, to the USA Supreme Court?                                  Your thoughts, and lets discuss.

    Trump is not the Messiah for America. But why trying to hang him?

      Because he has gotten away with hurting and belittling so many people in addition to making the U.S. the laughing stock of the world.

        MizBejabbers, your (who made you the Head Master of American English grammar) remember? here.                                Why do some USA  States allowed ponor that made the ponor actress Daniels trap Trump into (attempt)ing to rape her?                                         Ex-President Donald Trump had said repeatbdly that he had not met her, nor known the lady, Daniels.                                     But critically, in the 'hush money' trial, Cohens testimony and hers prevailed. But the trial is seen as political victimizemation. Trump was in the stand, and was not allowed to talk.                                             How come America is now like this?                                     Where is the video or CCTV reels that usual speaks against the victim, to tell the whole world that Trump belittle America?                                         Daniels had initially denied the rape. Later she admited it. Whether she took money from Cohen, I don't know. It all smells of double standard.

          "Where is the video or CCTV reels that usual speaks against the victim, to tell the whole world that Trump belittle America?"

          The answer to that question is "All OVER the place ... for years."

          Miekabagh, you probably don't have access to the TV channels and videos that we do here in the U.S. When all you see on TV for four years is Trump belittling the disabled, calling veterans of our military scum and saying he doesn't like POWs because they "got themselves caught" ... when it's his face and the words are coming out of his mouth, we can't help but form the opinions that we form, whether good or bad. And there are some in the U.S. who will give him an "atta boy" regardless of what he says.

          He has stated publicly on TV that if re-elected he will immediately seek revenge toward anyone who didn't back him and he will be President for Life." I don't suppose you have seen those speeches by him. Would you like to live under a dictatorship? We will see how many voters do when election day rolls around.

          Did you not get to see the video of Trump when he said that he likes to "grab women by the pu$$y?  It was in our face on American TV for months.

          Trump had every right to testify at his trial. Nobody stopped him; it was entirely up to himself and his defense team. I'm sure that the defense team decided it was not in his best interest to take the stand. Any defendant can take the stand at his or her trial, but very many choose not to. When a defendant chooses not to testify in his own behalf, the jury is instructed NOT to hold that against him, and they do not.

          Since you have access to a computer, I'm sure you have access to news services like AP or Reuters unless they are blocked where you live. I suggest that you look up their stories. They are a couple of worldwide unbiased news services, and they are both very good at publishing articles that answer questions like those you just asked. It sounds like you have access to Fox News. Try some of the other news sources and get some real information for a change.

            Thank you, MizBejabbers.                                    I've read and noted well that Trump had said he would grab the ladies by their pu$$y.                                                  That was awful and terrific to me too. I also read how he forced himself into the dressing room of Miss Universe 2016.                                               So your logic and reasoning is it gives you a license to revenge or think bad against him too? Trump is human.                                           Let the sentencing come. And November cometh. I'm waiting.

              What is your reasoning to keep asking if seeing the news "gives me a license" to form an opinion. No, the U.S. Constitution gives me the right. We don't have to have a license to THINK for ourselves in this country. I have not sought any kind of revenge against him as your sentence implies. I have the right  to vote against him, and I will. That is if he makes it onto the ballot. In case this news has not made it to your country, the Republican Party is considering NOT running him as its candidate. Did you not know this?

Correct me if I'm wrong.                                        Your Constitution also allow Trump as a convicted felon to vie for the ballot, right?                                      Don't vote for Trump. Vote for Biden.

                  You have to remember, Miebakagh57, you don't have to vote for Trump or Biden. Other candidates that will be on the ballot are:

                  Libertarian Party - Chase Oliver
                  Green Party - Jill Stein
                  Independent - Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
                  Constitution Party - Randall Terry
                  Independent - Cornel West

                  And, five (5) other candidates

                  Plus, you can do a write-in vote voting for someone not on the official ballot. That is what I will be doing. I am voting for Teddy Roosevelt as a protest vote.

                  Of course, we have the freedom to not vote at all. It is not mandatory to vote in the United States.

                  Nikki Haley has 97 delegates, the primary reason they kept her in the race, for this scenario.

                  The difference between policies Biden has pursued and Haley will pursue is negligible.  New boss, same as the old boss.

                  Trump is a threat to many/most in power in DC... it won't just be Comey and one or two others fired if he were to return to the Presidency... it will not be allowed to happen.

                    When I think about it, it would make perfect sense for such a scenario to play out, the GOP sure has gone through a lot of trouble having people believe otherwise.

                    It is as I said before, the sheer magnitude of what it means to have a convicted felon as the head of state involved in so many aspect of governance could not really be ignored indefinitely.

                    Haley has worked hard to be as hard nose as the Trumpers, but at least she won't have the temerity to change our Government introducing authoritarian concepts. It is back to 2 opposing politicians again. Regardless, she is a safer choice over someone like Donald Trump.

                    But will the MAGA die hards accept their fearless leader as deposed?

    Come July 11, 2024.  Ex-President Donald Trump will receive sentencing per the New York Manhattan Court felony conviction. He has not been convicted of a crime before.                                    Isn't the first degree likely zero? So how will Judge Jaun Merchan sentencing run? Fine? Probation? Discharge? Warning? Sentencing a convicted person like Trump, is complex.                                   Trump aptly deny any wrong doing. But labelled all the charges as 'scam'. And 'Look at him. Look at where he comes from'. Could tough Merchan take that against Trump? All the same, Trump is likely to be on probation regarding his appeal that's pending. Trump is enjoying his First Amendments Rights. A long prison sentence negates that. So a week? America's First!

Bracket mine.                                     With all that befalled him, especially the Stormy Daniels hush money conviction, the Big Picture is that Trump is still geared on to the USA presidency.                                      The sentencing as July 11 approach will not deter him. Trump is a BOLD man, embolded with the Spirit of Apollo.                                      It's no wonder many prominent  GOP still circle him as the leading star in the poll. He'll be nominated. Let the sentencing run.

        Credence, I think the problem is, and it's very common, that only the country in which the problem is occurring really gets to hear or read about both sides of it being aired. Only in this country do we get to see and smell all the dirty linen aired on both sides. I say this because when I was working on my MA in journalism about 30 years ago, one of my papers was a study of the media coverage of the Gulf War.

        Back then we had the big ole VHS tapes to record on. My husband stayed up late at night and found several news sources for me, including Russia, France,  England and some middle Eastern radio channels to name a few. (The fact that we were both ex broadcasters and he was a radio engineer was a real boon to finding the channels.) Of course we recorded ABC, CBS, NBC and other American news sources. After long hours of studying the tapes, I didn't expect my conclusion.

        All the non-American channels were in harmony with their reporting. This included Russia and the Middle Eastern radio being right in step with England and France. Since there were some media pools, maybe I should have expected this. But the news reporting was as clean as a whistle. There were no spins or slants coming from any of the pro-Eastern countries, no serious name calling or back biting. It was all news, not a bunch of commentary. Since we were the lead dog in the fight, our American news was more detailed than the news being reported from there back to their own countries.

        The point I'm making is that I doubt if the news in Africa about Trump in America is as newsworthy as it is here. I don't think he gets the same coverage, therefore he comes to his conclusions because he doesn't get the "fine" details and have to live with the results that we do. Who knows, he may be entertained by watching Trump on old reruns of "The Apprentice."

        I know that I can say the same thing about myself when it comes to problems with Prime Ministers in Canada or France or even problems in the EU. I never know what is really going on behind the scenes.

          Miebakaugh has been following Trump and the news well enough. He has had access to both sides. His position and pro-Trump point of view is deliberate. He has chosen to take a side in a way no different than our domestic counterparts.

          On rare occasions, I hear from Australia and Canada posters and they don't seem to be confused.  And yet there was this fellow from Brazil on the thread for a limited time that embraced Trump as he did  the Brazilian strong man that was in charge there not so long ago.      It doesn't matter where you are from, Rightwing thinking and advocacy is as individual as a fingerprint and just as impervious to reason.

                    I am not sure I understand your second parágraph.  The anti-democratic faction here was the left. Bolsanaro was not allowed to mention that his left wing opponent was a convicted criminal. How would you feel if the Supreme court declared Biden could not mention Trumps conviction and employed the Police to take down  Biden election pôsters? Sounds pretty undemocratic to me and that is one of the reasons half the Brazilians do not accept the election results.

          A convicted criminal as head of state in America? That is a novelty not considered in almost 250 years

          I am waiting with bated breath for the debate where I and Joe Biden can put Trump on the spot for answers rather than his usual BS. He is in fear of that as he should be.

                  My point is that Trumps woes are not due to partisan bias as so many on the right imply that they are. Does this mean that Donald Trump cannot be guilty on his own accord of anything based on the tenets of the law rather than just partisan politics?  If I recall, Trump was prosecuted for his phony Trump University exploiting and bilking people of their money, what did that have to do with Democrats?

                  Biden Jr. was not given preferential treatment just because he is the son of Joe Biden. And that was not due solely to Republican involvement.

                  Your opinion is mere conjecture and is way off base.

                    And MY point is that without Democrats pushing every court problem he has had there would BE no court problems.  Trump's businesses have had, and will have again, legal problems.  It is the nature of big business.

                    But his political woes in the court are coming directly from Democrats chasing him; not a single Republican has signed on for those prosecutions.

              I am also focused on economic development, it is just that many of us simply do not see Trump as the answer. Trumps criminal indictments reflect directly on his fitness for the job of President.

Not that Trump, is going to prison.                                    I know the basics of law. Nigeria copy the USA. Why don't you say you'll meet  Trump with economic questions ealear? But so much on the indictment? That's why I pity you. Sorry.

    Is America still hold up to her thinking as 'leaders of the free world?                                    Have you tell that to China and Russia? Tell it also to Great Britain and Japan.                                    To you the era that America is the Police of the world is not yet over. Tell it to France, and India.                                    And besides all this, America, is ridicled in many third world countries.

      I do not subscribe to “world policeman” but do subscribe to the American democratic tradition the principles of which are shared by our allies.

      I am going to retain that and I couldn’t  less about third world countries opinions in this regard.

    July is here. And today's  Friday, 6 July, 2024. In a weeks time another judgement awaits Trump.                                    What do you think?
