Aftershock of Trump’s conviction; Can Israel agree to a ceasefire?

This week’s Sunday news programs will likely focus on the fallout from former President Trump’s conviction in his hush money trial in New York earlier this week.

The former president on Thursday became the first former US president to be granted convicted felon status after a jury found him guilty of all charges of falsifying corporate records to cover up alleged affairs during his 2016 campaign.

The former president denounced the trial shortly after the verdict was read.

“This was a rigged, shameful trial. The real verdict will be pronounced by the people on November 5, and they know what happened here, and everyone knows what happened here,” Trump said.

Several prominent Republicans, including House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), have now criticized the verdict in the case. In a statement, Johnson, who will appear on “Fox News Sunday” this week, said it was “a shameful day in American history.”

“The American people rightly see that this is a legal issue, and they know it is — and dangerous,” he added. “President Trump will rightly appeal this absurd verdict – and he WILL WIN.”

North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum (right), who will appear this week on CBS’ “Face the Nation” and is considered a possible vice presidential pick for Trump, has said the recent conviction will not prevent him from potentially to serve in prison. another Trump administration.

“It doesn’t give me pause, because I think we, everyone knows that it’s … very difficult to get a fair trial for Donald Trump in New York,” Burgum said. “Don’t give me a break.”

On Friday, President Biden announced the terms of an Israeli-led proposal with a three-part roadmap toward ending the fighting and freeing the remaining hostages taken on October 7, a strong sign toward a possible end to the Israeli struggle. -Hamas war.

“After intensive diplomacy by my team, my many conversations with leaders of Israel, Qatar and Egypt, and other Middle Eastern countries, Israel has made a comprehensive new proposal. It is a roadmap to a lasting ceasefire and the release of all hostages,” Biden said.

Biden said the proposal had been relayed to Hamas through Qatar, but indicated Hamas had not yet formally accepted the plan.

“This is truly a defining moment. Israel has made their proposal. Hamas says it wants a ceasefire – this deal is a chance to prove whether they really mean it. Hamas must accept the deal,” Biden said.

John Kirby, the White House national security communications adviser who has often spoken to the press about the Biden administration’s policies surrounding the war between Israel and Hamas, will appear on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday.
