( – Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy (California), former House Speaker, defended the GOP’s decision to move ahead with former President Donald Trump’s nomination despite the guilty verdict in his hush money trial on Thursday.

Speaking to CNN’s Manu Raju, who queried whether it is a good idea for the GOP to nominate Trump as the party’s 2024 Presidential candidate after his conviction, McCarthy claimed that it is “100 percent” a good idea. 

The California Republican also suggested that Trump would win the Presidency. 

McCarthy made his statements on CNN’s “Inside Politics.” 

He also referenced an “earlier part” of the show by bringing up whether Trump’s hush money case should have even gone to trial. The former House Speaker suggested that the “majority of Americans” understood that had Trump not been running for President, the case “never would have gone to trial.” 

When the Republican National Committee (RNC) hosts its convention this summer, Trump is expected to officially become the GOP’s Presidential nominee, despite his sentencing hearing scheduled for July 11, four days before the convention begins.

Later in the show, Raju asked McCarthy whether the GOP was concerned it would lose women and independent voters following the guilty verdict. 

Rather than answer if the Republican Party had been concerned it would lose independents and women voters, McCarthy claimed that “democracy’s on the ballot” and so was “Biden economics.” The California Democrat claimed these two elements were what voters “are opposed to” and didn’t want to endure another four years under. He claimed that “people are missing” what the American public was concerned about.
