NYC Mom Who Voted Democrat for 40 Years Reveals Why She’s Voting for Trump Despite the Guilty Verdict

A New York City mom who has voted Democrat for 40 years claims she will vote for Donald Trump despite his criminal conviction.

Madeline Brame, who lost her son to a stabbing attack in 2018, attended Trump’s rally in the South Bronx last week to show her support for the presumptive Republican nominee for president.

She said she has turned away from the Democratic party after her son was murdered, as she blames progressive Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg for ‘going soft’ on his killers.

Brame told WABC: ‘Alvin Bragg – the way he let two of my son’s killers walk. He dropped gang assault and murder charges against two of my son’s killers.

‘I’ve been in this fight for about six years and we support Trump because we know that he cares about the issues that happen here in this community even to the point where he’s shown up here today in the south Bronx… the dirty South Bronx, that is full of crime and poverty… and he’s actually here.’

While Brame made the comments before Trump was convicted, she took to social media to express that the jury’s decision has not changed her mind about the Republican.

Brame said on X: ‘Obscene amounts of our tax dollars were spent on this trial but @ManhattanDA doesn’t have money to take murder cases to trial.

She added: ‘No matter the verdict, we have but 1 job to do “VOTE their as*** OUT!” Up and down the line. Game over!’

Brame’s son Hason Correa, a 35-year-old father of three and Army veteran, was assaulted by a group of people he did not know in Harlem in 2018 and stabbed to death during an altercation outside an apartment building.

She has blamed Bragg for going ‘soft’ on the perpetrators.

Two of Correa’s attackers struck a plea deal with Manhattan prosecutors and one has already been let off on time served.

Four siblings – Christopher, James and Mary Saunders and Travis Stewart – were initially arrested for the killing.

James Saunders pleaded guilty to gang assault and second-degree murder and was sentenced to 20 years.

Christopher was convicted of gang assault and sentenced to 20 years to life.

Stewart and Mary Saunders pleaded guilty to gang assault, with Stewart sentenced to seven years and Mary to 14 months, which she had already served.

Other Trump supports online expressed similar reactions to his criminal conviction on all counts in new York Thursday.

Medical journalist Nicole Saphier said on X: ‘Alvin Bragg says “white collar crime is the core of what the New York district attorney does.”

‘Violent crimes against every day New Yorkers? Not so much.’

Republican lawmakers reacted with immediate fury on Thursday as a New York jury convicted former President Donald Trump on 34 counts of falsifying business records to influence the 2016 election, speaking out with near unanimity in questioning the legitimacy of the trial and how it was conducted.

House Speaker Mike Johnson said it was a ‘shameful day in American history’ and the charges were ‘purely political.’

Ohio Sen. J.D. Vance said the verdict was a ‘disgrace to the judicial system.’ And Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise, the No. 2 House Republican, said that the decision was ‘a defeat for Americans who believe in the critical legal tenet that justice is blind.’

Within minutes of the verdict being read, Republicans who have in the past been divided over support for their presumptive GOP presidential nominee found common ground in attacking — with few specifics — the judge, the jury and President Joe Biden.

The conviction came on state charges in a Manhattan court; as the nation’s top federal official, Biden has no say in what happens in the New York City courtroom.

The jury found that Trump falsified the records in a scheme to influence his presidential election through hush money payments to a porn actor who had said she had sex with Trump.

Few Republicans mentioned the details of the case but many echoed his repeated assertions that it was a ‘rigged, disgraceful trial.’ He is expected to quickly appeal.

There is no evidence that the trial was rigged. Trump’s defense has complained about a $15 donation Judge Juan Manuel Merchan made to Biden in 2020 and his daughter’s job as a Democratic political consultant, but the judge rejected Trump’s lawyers’ request for a recusal and said he was certain of his ‘ability to be fair and impartial.’

And the guilty verdict only improved the former president’s standing with likely voters ahead of the 2024 election, according to an exclusive snap poll for DailyMail.com.

Of those who said the 34 guilty counts had changed their view of Donald Trump, 22 percent said they now had a more favorable rating compared with 16 percent who said they viewed him more negatively.

That six-point net positive result is another sign of the way the businessman-turned-politician seems able to ride out crises that would sink anyone else.

    No evidence that it was rigged? An 8 year old case that was revived to coincide with the election? A hand picked jury that asked them did they support/followTrump? A Democrat district with Democrat judge and officialdom? A refusal to hear clarification of defence witness answers? A collusion of the DOJ with Bragg? I could go on but how much evidence of trial and election interference do you need to conclude that it was rigged?

      How about the judge’s daughter BENEFITTING from the judge letting this fake ‘case’ go forward? Or the fact Trump was NEVER CHARGED with any CRIME, a fake ‘felony case’ was taken up by a ‘non-federal judge, AND the ‘matter’ was PAST the statute of limitations for bringing it? ALL illegal. AND the fact that Trump was ‘gagged’ but his accusers weren’t?

  • Guido says:

    Sorry for her loss. Praying for her and love her courage.

  • Breadwoman says:

    Trump LOVES America, and he LOVES NYC, his hometown. All his work as President SHOWS that he cares for America and The People as his FIRST priority – even above Politics! While Dems do just the opposite. He never even took a salary from The People for his 4 yrs in office. Compare that with any other president. AND he didn’t take a dime from the GOP for all his Campaign expenses, as he crossed the country nearly EVERY DAY to talk to The People of America – HE PAID FOR IT HIMSELF! Unheard of! He’s NOT ‘all talk’. He’s ALL ACTION! He’s the Real Deal. It’s why America LOVES HIM!
