Rounds Issues Statement on Verdict in Former President Trump’s New York Trial

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) released the following statement after the verdict was announced in Former President Trump’s New York trial: 

“This verdict probably helps former President Trump grow his support politically. The left is so disconnected from the pulse of America. They’ve underestimated the disgust with Washington, D.C. and the bureaucracy that is crushing families and the economy. Now, they’ve opened a Pandora’s box. A good portion of the country believes the only way to save our country is to swing back just as hard, with the same weaponization of the legal system and bureaucracy. As Americans, we are better than this. I pray we keep our wits and do it at the ballot box. Unfortunately, I fear this will only divide our country even further.”
