Former acting chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Donna Brazile, appeared on ABC’s This Week to discuss Trump and the 2024 election.
“But I have to say something because, George, I’m old enough to say this. I’ve seen two movements outside of the social justice movements in my life on the political side,” she said.
“One was the Reagan movement. Reagan had a hold on his base. The country at large, they saw him as someone who was willing to stand up for American values, whatever that might have meant,” she noted. “Now I thought it was reactionary.”
“The other movement I saw was Barack Obama, hope and change,” she went on. “That galvanized the American people.”
“I’ve never seen anything like this with Donald Trump… I mean, being indicted, that’s making him stronger, raising $10 million using a… mug shot… This is a movement,” Donna Brazile said to the panel.

Trump’s popularity has been soaring following his indictments, coupled with the widely publicized mugshot issued by Fulton County authorities.
President Trump has generated millions of dollars in fundraising through the use of the mugshot.
