Friday, during a speech in California, President Donald Trump used an obscenity to imitate Joe Biden, whom he referred to as “crooked,” while discussing the political investigation he believes is unfairly targeting him.
Trump asserts that the indictments filed against him are being used to impede his campaign and his potential reelection as president.
“If you become president and you don’t like somebody or if somebody’s beating you by 10, 15, or 20 points like we’re doing with crooked Joe Biden — ‘let’s indict the motherfucker!’” Trump said as the crowd responded with laughs and a roaring applause.
With that, Trump gestured to one of his attorneys present and asked, “Harmeet, did you ever see anything like what’s going on?”
“‘I got indicted four times, I set a record!” Trump said.
“Most indictments in the shortest period of time,” he added.
“Who is it? Trump. Trump, what the hell did he do?” Trump joked.
Trump also called Biden “the most corrupt president, the most incompetent president we’ve ever had.”
The January 6 case, the classified data case, the Georgia election “interference” case, and the Stormy Daniels “hush money” case in New York are a few of the cases in which the former president faces multiple indictments.
Trump pleaded not guilty to each and every charge.
“And we’re also going to be appealing the venue because the venue, I say, we have to federalize Washington DC,” Trump told the Daily Caller.
“That was we have to make it safe. We have to make it clean. We had to make it beautiful here,” he added.
“How can they try me in Washington DC if I say we’re going to federalize so you can have that nobody else has that,” Trump said, adding he will continue to appeal rulings from U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, who is overseeing his election case in Washington, D.C.
According to a recent poll, the indictments against Trump are having the “opposite” effect on the Democrats.
70% of 2,010 Americans surveyed between August 16 and August 18 believed that the current state of affairs in America was “somewhat bad” or “very bad.”
71% of Republican electors surveyed by CBS News disagree that Joe Biden is the “legitimate” victor.
64% of electors who were asked to define the American political system used the term “dysfunctional,” while 58% used the term “corrupt.”
14% more individuals considered it “effective,” and 7% more individuals deemed it “honest.”
This month, the publication of the mugshot of the leading Republican presidential candidate led to an increase in support from minorities.
The Washington Post reported that after the publication of the mugshot, Hispanic and black voter approval rates skyrocketed.
According to The Post, Trump’s average popularity rating among black voters was 20%, while it was 42% among Hispanic voters.
The Democratic National Committee, which has held a firm grip on minorities for decades, was stunned by the outcome.
“Both numbers — and especially that for Black voters — could set modern-day records for a Republican in a presidential election,” the Post’s Aaron Blake wrote.
“Trump in 2020 took just 8 percent of Black voters and 36 percent of Hispanic voters, according to the Pew Research Center’s validated voter survey, “Blake wrote.
Exit polls pegged those figures at 12 percent of Black voters and 32 percent of Hispanic voters,” Blake added.
