Donald Trump is more likely to win the White House because of the “nonsense” charges filed against him in the past five months, his son Eric has said.
Speaking exclusively to The Telegraph, Mr Trump, the executive vice president of the Trump Organization, said that the more times his father is indicted, the stronger he becomes politically and financially.
The former US president faces 91 charges across four trials, ranging from the wilful retention of national defence information to conspiracy to defraud the United States. He has denied them all.
Despite his legal woes, he has increased his lead over Ron De Santis, his closest Republican rival, to 44 points and has raised nearly $10 million since his Georgia mugshot was released on Aug 24.
Americans are “sick and tired of the weaponisation of politics” and are “infuriated” by how the former president is being treated, his son claimed.
