(DCWatchdog.com) – During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” North Dakota Republican Governor Doug Burgum stepped up to defend former President Donald Trump against the criminal charges he is facing from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.

Burgum, a business-oriented figure, voiced his perspective on the issue, “I’m a business guy. This is a business filing case. If it was anybody other than a presidential candidate, this would be a misdemeanor.”

He continued, “How it got turned into 34 felonies, when there isn’t even the alleged crime, which is — they haven’t even convinced anybody there was a crime.”

“But if it were, it would be a Federal Election Commission crime. And that would be pursued by the federal courts, not by a county DA in New York,” he added. “And so I think, again, Americans, the outcome of this trial doesn’t affect them.”

In his view, the trial serves as “a spectacle for cable TV,” but average citizens have already formed their opinions on Trump and Biden based on policies rather than individuals. Burgum believed people were better off under Trump’s policies.

Looking ahead, the governor expressed anticipation for the future, saying that Americans will decide the elections.

However, he expressed that both parties and all Americans have to make sure that every county and every precinct is beyond reproach and that everybody can be confident in our country.

He also emphasized the importance of election integrity and highlighted the need for confidence in the electoral process.

“In North Dakota, we’re doing that,” he asserted. “Nobody’s questioning the results of an election in any county or precinct in North Dakota. It can be done.”

“It’s done all over the nation, except, in some cases, we have got — we could have a handful of counties that this election could turn on again, and we have just got to make sure that, when it’s done, both sides feel good about how it was counted,” he concluded.
