Americans react to Trump’s guilty verdict: Luntz

Former President Donald Trump has been found guilty of all counts of falsifying business records in his hush money trial, making him the first former US president to be convicted of a crime. Trump is likely to appeal the verdict. He will be sentenced on July 11, just four days before the Republican National Convention.

In this 35-minute episode of America Speaks, Dr. Frank Luntz asks a group of Americans about the verdict just minutes after it was announced. The panelists discuss their surprise (or lack thereof) at the verdict, its potential impact on future elections, the possibility of violence in its wake, and whether the case should have been brought forward.
