Here’s Why Trump Can Still Run for President , After Hush-Money Conviction.

Donald Trump made history on May 30 when he became the first U.S. president to be convicted of a crime.

He was found guilty on "34 felony counts of falsifying business documents" linked to hush-money paid to Stormy Daniels, NBC News reports.

.

Trump will be sentenced on July 11, four days before the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee where he is set to receive the party's presidential nomination.

But the former president barely batted an eye at the conviction, saying, "The real verdict is going to be Nov.

5 by the people.".

This was a rigged, disgraceful trial.

The real verdict is going to be Nov.

5 by the people, and they know what happened here, and everybody knows what happened here, Donald Trump, via statement.

I’m a very innocent man, and it’s OK.

I’m fighting for our country.

I’m fighting for our Constitution, Donald Trump, via statement.

Trump immediately used the conviction as a means to inspire his constituents to lend their support via money and votes.

.

He can still run for president because the criteria to do so, as stated in Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution, is as follows:.

A candidate must be a "natural born Citizen," at least 35 years old and have lived in the U.S. for 14 years.

There are no other qualifications other than those in the Constitution.

There's just three, Chuck Rosenberg, a former U.S. attorney and an NBC News and MSNBC legal analyst, via statement .

There is nothing in the Constitution that says someone who's been convicted of a crime can't run for the nation's highest office.

Some analysts predict that Trump's conviction may just be the fuel he needs to drum up unprecedented support from his ultra-MAGA army.
