When former President Donald Trump spoke in Montgomery last month, he quipped that all he needed was one more indictment to secure his presidential nomination and ultimate victory. Since his latest indictment in Fulton County, Georgia for alleged election interference, his poll numbers have indeed gone up, and U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise) said he's confident Trump will take back the White House in 2024.
During a recent appearance on "1819 News: The Podcast" with 1819 News CEO Bryan Dawson, Moore cited a poll by McLaughlin & Associates showing Trump "decisively defeating" the Republican competition and incumbent President Joe Biden in the 2024 elections.
As someone familiar with the weaponization of the federal government, Moore gave the indictments most of the credit for Trump's rising poll numbers since they have helped make Trump relatable to citizens who feel they've been mistreated by the American justice system, Moore said.
"This indictment process, what I think happened, a lot of the minority communities have seen the weaponization of government against them and they've felt like it's been abused," he said. "They're very familiar."
Moore spoke of his own run-in with the judicial system when, as a member of the Alabama Legislature in 2014, he was found not guilty of perjury related to communications regarding state economic development projects.
He continued: "A lot of these charges [against Trump] are trumped up, pardon the pun… I think a lot of it will fall eventually to the wayside. This stuff just doesn't have a lot of sticking power. There may be some small conviction that he can appeal, but I think that at the end of the day that Donald Trump's going to be the next president of the United States."
With the financial devastation dealt to Bud Light and Target over their embracing woke ideology and with the rise in popularity of singers Jason Aldean and Oliver Anthony for their songs calling out the problems in modern-day America, Moore said the political and cultural tides are starting to shift back to more conservative values.
"There is something going on in this country, and it's a movement unlike anything we've seen, he said. "… If you see that mass of humanity that is getting away from Bud Light and moving to Aldean and Oliver Anthny and those folks if we can as Republicans and conservatives tie into that and message to that, man, that's a tsunami that'll take an election like we've never seen."
