Burgum: Americans Will Vote On ‘Issues That Affect Them’ Like ‘Inflation’, Not Trump’s Trial

 North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum argued over the weekend that the American people are not going to vote for president based on the results of the former President Donald Trump’s trial in Manhattan because they only care about issues that impact them at home.

Burgum made the remarks during a Sunday interview with CBS News host Margaret Brennan on “Face The Nation” while discussing the highly controversial case and verdict from the trial.

Burgum countered Brennan’s point about what polling says about what the American people allegedly think about the trial by noting that polling is nothing more than something that reflects attitudes at a specific “point in time.”

“And I had a chance to briefly look at some of your poll numbers this morning,” Burgam said. “And I also saw there that almost two-thirds of the respondents said they weren’t paying close attention. And I understand that they’re not paying close attention to the trial, because most Americans out there, you know, they’ve got – working Americans don’t have time to watch, you know, TV all day, read every report, because they’re facing all the things, you know, putting food on the table, gas in the car all the challenges that they’re facing. And I think that, as this moment in time passes, when we have the election coming this fall, people are going to make a decision about, were they better – are they better off today than they were four years ago?”

“Americans are going to come back to the issues that affect them, because this trial outcome doesn’t affect them,” he later added. “Inflation affects them.”
