PALM BEACH, Fla. — Former President Donald Trump returned to his estate at Mar-a-Lago to a crowd of cheering supporters in the ballroom, where he railed against the “election interference” being brought by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg over alleged payments that were used as hush money to Stormy Daniels.
“The only crime that I have committed is to fiercely defend our nation from those who seek to destroy it,” Trump said, while noting Bragg was backed by money donated by George Soros during his election for district attorney.
It was not just the recent indictment Trump brought up Tuesday night. He said the establishment has gone after from the day he started running for president back in 2015. In addition to being targeted by the government, Trump said, “Our country is going to hell” under President Joe Biden.
Trump also called out Bragg for not prosecuting serious crimes committed by everyday New Yorkers, resulting in major crimes being at high levels. Those in attendance for Trump’s speech included Mike Lindell, Kari Lake, and Ric Grenell.
The indictment brought by Bragg has been called weak not just by Trump’s supporters, but also talking heads at liberal mainstream media outlets.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson said the only reason why Trump was charged is because he decided to run for president again.
