( – Last Saturday, Republican presidential candidate Asa Hutchinson (R) was booed after he suggested during a campaign speech that former President Donald Trump was going to be convicted.

The former Arkansas governor stated during his speech at the Florida Freedom Summit organized by the state’s GOP that next March they will get to witness the justice system at work in both state and federal courts. He added that, as someone who has been in the courtroom as a federal prosecutor for more than 25 years, he believes there is a big possibility that Trump is going to be charged with a felony next year.

That statement sparked the crowd, which was in its majority made up of Trump supporters, to boo and groan in response.

Throughout the 2024 presidential cycle, Hutchinson has frequently criticized the former president. He is not the only Republican candidate to have made such comments in recent months. Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has similarly argued that Trump would be convicted in one of the cases and that once that happened, it would all be “over.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), who is a vocal supporter of the former President, took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to slam Hutchinson about the comment. She then called for him to drop out of the GOP race as he did not have any chance to win. She added that Hutchinson was depending on Trump ending up in jail for his campaign, but even then, he would not have the support of other people in the party.
