Former President Donald Trump now faces four indictments, two at the state level and two federal, and many believe it could hurt his 2024 presidential campaign.
In a sense, it undoubtedly will hurt him, as it will force the former president -- which he has admitted is a problem -- to spend time and money fighting legal challenges instead of on extra campaign stops and television ad campaigns.
However, according to Breitbart, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and many others believe that the indictments, which she labeled as "pure communism," will not hurt Trump's 2024 campaign, as voters will be focused on real issues like the economy.
Greene made the prediction during a recent interview on Fox News Channel's Sunday Morning Futures.
She also predicted that Trump could face yet another indictment out of Arizona, claiming it's simply a coordinated effort to continue to weaponize the justice system against Trump in order to hamstring his presidential ambitions.
"Well, I’m sure Arizona is next," Greene said. "
"And just as Stephen Miller laid out, this is a conspiracy, a grand conspiracy by the Democrat Party, to use the justice system at the federal level, but also in the states, using these state DAs, like in Georgia, Fani Willis. They will use Arizona’s. They’re using New York’s. And they’re using this giant collaboration basically to affect the 2024 election," she added.

Greene went on, "But, Maria, let me tell you something. Americans are not going to have it. This election is not going to be swayed by indictments against President Trump that are really pure communism in America today."
The lawmaker insisted that American voters will show up to the polling places next year and cast their vote based on economic conditions, specifically the conditions that affect everyday Americans, like groceries and gas.
"This election is going to be swayed with gas prices, food prices, inflation, and security," Greene said. "Americans want $1.75 gas back like we had in Georgia in November of 2020. Single moms can’t afford cereal and bread to make their kids’ sandwiches as they go back to school because of inflation and food prices."
She's not wrong.
Like Trump or not, the U.S. economy was rocking along under Trump's time in the White House, and many believe that voters, even if they don't say it out loud, will take another chance at having those conditions once again under a second Trump presidency.
Only time will tell if the barrage of indictments and other legal woes will ever cut into Trump's momentum. So far, if that's what they're really trying, it's definitely not working.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
