What Sort of Man Is Donald Trump?

“What sort of man is Donald Trump? He is a felon, among other things. He says he was wrongly convicted. But people who have been convicted of felonies sometimes find their way into office. There’s Yusef Salaam, for example, one of the ‘Central Park Five’ whose execution Donald Trump once called for in a New York Daily News ad. … He was 15 when the crime was committed and 40 when New York paid a settlement to him and the others convicted in the crime …. He currently sits on the New York City Council. Trump says he stands by his statements about Salaam and the others. He believes himself to have been railroaded, but apparently does not believe it is possible that others have been unjustly convicted — except for those convicted of crimes related to the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021, whom he hails as ‘heroes’ and describes as ‘political prisoners.'” (06/03/24)
