封口费案封不了特朗普竞选美国总统之路 Trump’s guilty verdict

View descriptionShare

美国前总统特朗普5月30日被裁定他在封口费案件中的三十四项重罪全部成立。特朗普在走出法院时称判决“可耻”,受到操纵,并出言攻击法官腐败。他称自己非常无辜,还指控这是总统拜登对他的打击。

特朗普被控伪造商业记录以掩盖他在2016年总统选举期间,支付十三万美元给一个色情女明星换取对方不公开他们有性关系的事实。支付封口费在美国不算什么罪。问题是特朗普涉嫌伪造记录掩饰自己用政治捐款来支付个人的封口费。他因此成为美国历史上第一位被判有罪的前总统。法官将在7月11日判刑,特朗普可能被判处监禁和巨额罚款。

特朗普会不会成为第一位在狱中当选的总统?他如果当选,又会对美国与美国的外交政策带来什么影响?

这期的早报播客《东谈西论》,听主持人韩咏红和中华战略学会资深研究员张竞详细解析特朗普被定罪会如何影响他二度竞选美国总统之路。

延伸阅读:

Donald Trump became the first U.S. president to be convicted of a crime as he makes a bid to return to the White House. A 12-member New York jury found him guilty on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records. 

The jurors unanimously agreed that Trump falsified documents to conceal a $130,000 hush money payment to former porn star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

Speaking outside the courthouse after the verdict, Trump claimed that the trial was “rigged” against him and he was a “very innocent man”. He called the verdict a “disgrace” and accused President Joe Biden of orchestrating the prosecution. 

The conviction does not prevent Trump from running for president. If Trump were to defeat Mr Biden in the November’s election, he would become the first convicted criminal to occupy the White House. How will his guilty verdict sway the U.S. presidential election? If Trump is elected, what are the ramifications for the U.S. and its foreign policy?

In this episode of Global Heartbeat podcast, host Han Yong Hong discusses the impact of Trump’s conviction on his presidential bid with Chang Ching, Non-Resident Research Fellow, Society for Strategic Studies.
