Young Voters Respond to Former President Trump Hush Money Verdict

In response to the jury finding President Donald Trump guilty on all 34 counts, NextGen PAC President Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez released the following statement:

“Whether citizen, candidate, or president, no one is above the law. When elected officials break the law, they must be held accountable. From paying off people to keep voters from learning of his scandals, to inciting a deadly insurrection on January 6, to threatening our national security by illegally retaining classified documents and obstructing justice, Donald Trump has repeatedly jeopardized American democracy by stoking chaos and disorder, and today’s results only underscore that truth.

“Today’s decision was made by a jury of everyday Americans, who weighed the evidence and found the former President’s actions to be a crime. And, with more trials to come, this is just the start of Trump’s problems. Young voters are paying attention and we will not stand to have a corrupt, fascist, and extremist leader guiding our country into the future. Trump and MAGA Republicans must be held accountable. They will keep chipping away at our freedoms until they face the full consequences for their crimes.”
