In a recent interview, former President Donald Trump hinted at a concerning course of action if he were to regain the presidency, taking aim at those who fought for his arrest.
Glenn Beck Raises Crucial Question
Right-wing broadcaster Glenn Beck confronted Trump with a question that has lingered since his 2016 campaign. Beck asked, “Do you regret not locking [Clinton] up? And if you’re president again, will you lock people up?”
Trump’s Firm Response
Trump’s response was swift and impactful, stating, “The answer is you have no choice, because they’re doing it to us.”
Trump’s Unfulfilled Promise
During his 2016 campaign, Trump famously chanted “lock her up” in reference to his opponent, Hillary Clinton.
This promise remained unfulfilled during his time in office. Hillary Clinton was investigated by the Justice Dept. for nearly the entirety of Trump’s time in office, but no evidence of wrongdoing sufficient to bring a case against her was ever found.
Facing His Own Legal Battles
While Trump has encouraged the “lock her up” sentiment against others, he now finds himself entangled in his own legal battles that could have serious consequences.
Facing His Charges
Under four indictments, Trump faces a staggering 91 criminal charges related to various offenses, including election subversion, retention of classified information, and hush-money payments.
Denying Any Wrongdoing
Trump firmly denied any wrongdoing, asserting he is a political persecution victim.
Trials on the Horizon
The legal saga continues as trials related to these charges are scheduled for the coming year.
Staggering Potential Sentences
Media outlets have calculated the potential sentences Trump could face if found guilty, with estimates reaching as high as 717 years.
Age and Political Aspirations
Despite these legal challenges, Trump remains a formidable force in politics. At the age of 77, he continues to dominate national and key state polling for the Republican presidential nomination.
Admission of Holding Back
During the interview, Trump admitted that he had not fully used up his arsenal of criticisms against President Biden while he was in office, “I never hit Biden as hard as I could have.” he said.
Biden and Trump’s Historical Feud
Trump’s first impeachment stemmed from attempts to uncover potentially damaging information about rivals, including Joe Biden.
Republican Allies’ Counterattack
Currently, Trump’s Republican allies are contemplating the possibility of impeaching President Biden due to allegations connected to his son, Hunter.
In a surprising claim, Trump asserted that President Biden was behind the indictments against him.
Fact-Checking the Accusation
It’s important to note that all indictments were brought forth by independent prosecutors, not under the direction of the White House.
Disputing Sexual Assault Claims
Trump also addressed the ongoing legal battle related to civil claims brought by E Jean Carroll, who accused him of sexual assault, “the woman that I never met, that they accused me of rape, that’s being run by a Democrat, a Democrat operative, and paid for by the Democrat party.”
Enemies and Motivations
Throughout the interview, Trump repeatedly referred to his political opponents as “sick people” and “evil people.”
