DNC attack Trump with “Convicted Felon” label

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The Democratic National Committee is sharpening its attacks against former President Donald Trump, preparing for the first time to unveil a new political advertisement which will refer to Trump as a “convicted felon” after a Manhattan jury last week found Trump guilty of 34 counts of falsifying business records in his “hush money” trial.

The move from the DNC will be unveiled Thursday in the form of a billboard near Trump’s scheduled campaign event in Phoenix, Arizona, CBS News has learned. Trump will be participating in a town-hall style conversation with Turning Point Action CEO Charlie Kirk, marking Trump’s first official campaign stop since the verdict came down.

The billboard, which has an English and Spanish version, reads: “Trump already attacked Arizona’s Democracy once. Now he’s back as a convicted felon. He’s out for revenge and retribution. Trump. Unfit to Serve.”

It is the first time the DNC is using the language “convicted felon” in paid advertising since the Manhattan criminal trial.

“If Trump, now a convicted felon, wins in November, he pledges to be a dictator ‘on day one’ in order to implement his agenda of revenge and retribution: stoking political violence while attacking Arizonans’ reproductive and democratic rights,” said Abhi Rahman, deputy communications director for the DNC.
