Several politicians considered as potential vice-presidential candidates for former President Donald Trump’s 2024 campaign came to his defense as he faced the first day of his hush money trial in New York.

Accusations of “election interference” spearheaded by Democrats were common among the statements made by these allies, mirroring the sentiment expressed by Trump’s campaign.

Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), a prominent figure in discussions about Trump’s potential running mate, took to social media to criticize the trial. “What the radical Left is doing is not just election interference, it’s election engineering,” he wrote on X. Scott emphasized that such attempts would not deter Trump’s political journey.

Representative Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.), another name frequently mentioned as a vice-presidential contender, attacked the credibility of the judge overseeing the case, labeling him a “corrupt” Biden donor involved in a “6-8 week show trial… Total election interference.”

Senator JD Vance (R-Ohio) echoed these sentiments, denouncing the trial as “election interference” and criticizing Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s approach as a “disgrace to the rule of law.”

North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum, also cited by Trump as a possible vice-presidential choice, defended Trump on CNN, arguing that the legal action represented “an unprecedented attack on a candidate during a political year.”

He stressed that the case wouldn’t hold if it involved any other American business person, pointing out the exceptional nature of the charges being escalated to a felony.

The collective defense from these political figures not only highlights their ongoing support for Trump but also their active role in reinforcing campaign narratives while Trump is occupied with the trial.

The involvement of these individuals underscores the strategic importance of loyalty in Trump’s potential vice-presidential picks and the campaign’s reliance on key Republican figures to maintain a united front during the proceedings.

Trump, who denies any wrongdoing, is facing 34 counts of falsifying business records connected to payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election. Jury selection in the trial is ongoing and expected to precede several weeks of court hearings.
