Can Trump turn prosecution into an electoral asset?

US President Donald Trump has been facing a barrage of political and legal woes in recent weeks, but the Republican leader is hoping to turn the tables and make his prosecution a political asset as the 2020 presidential elections draw near.

Trump's legal woes began with the publication of the Mueller report, which detailed evidence of possible obstruction of justice by Trump and his associates. Now, the House of Representatives has launched impeachment proceedings against Trump and the president faces a number of criminal investigations from state and federal prosecutors.

But despite all of the legal trouble, Trump has managed to maintain a strong base of support among his core supporters. The president has sought to characterize the investigations as a “witch hunt” and an attempt to overturn the results of the 2016 election.

Now, Trump and his allies are looking to use the investigations as a way to motivate his base in the upcoming election. Trump has characterized the investigations as a partisan effort to remove him from office, and he has sought to use the investigations to paint himself as a victim of political persecution.

Trump's strategy appears to be working. A recent poll shows that Trump's approval rating has risen since the start of the impeachment hearings. This suggests that Trump's base is sticking with him despite the mounting legal troubles.

Trump and his allies are hoping to use the investigations to their advantage and paint the president as a victim of partisan politics. They are also hoping to energize Trump's base and turn his legal woes into an electoral asset.

Only time will tell if Trump's strategy will work, but it is clear that the president is hoping to use the investigations to his advantage and turn a negative into a positive. Whether or not Trump can turn his prosecution into an electoral asset remains to be seen.
