During a rally in support of Republican candidates for the midterm elections, the former president also criticized the “hateful and divisive speech” of Joe Biden.
Former US President Donald Trump on Saturday responded to Joe Biden, who described him as a threat to democracy, calling him instead “enemy of the stateand sued him for lack of jurisdiction over a campaign rally in Pennsylvania for the midterm elections.
In front of his supporters, the Republican billionaire also criticized the FBI’s surprising search of his Florida residence on August 8 at Mar-a-Lago, calling this investigative action “in the most shocking abuse of power by an administration in American history“. In Wilkes-Barre, a small town near Scranton, Joe Biden’s hometown, Donald Trump came to support Republican candidates in the next midterm elections on November 8, including Mehmet Oz, a doctor who became a star on the small screen.
But in this state of Pennsylvania that will be the key to the battle for control of the two chambers, his opponent preceded him this week and attacked with extraordinary violence, accusing him of representing, with “the +MAGA Republicans+“(Make America Great Again)”an extremism that threatens the foundations of our Republic“. In Philadelphia, the cradle of the United States, Joe Biden even called for the rescue “the soul of america“, harm those who”do not respect the Constitution», «do not believe in the law», «does not recognize the will of the people“.
“Most divisive speech”
“He (Joe Biden), the enemy of the state“, wanted to answer Donald Trump, criticizing”the most violent, hateful and divisive speech ever given by an American president“. “His speech was pure hatred and anger“, he insisted, accompanied by his supporters. Therefore, in the middle of the red or blue signs calling for “save america“, Edward Young, 63, believes that”the President of the United States, that is the so-called President of the United States, has declared war on me. And he declared war on half of America“.
Criticizing inflation and increasing uncertainty, Donald Trump, who apparently plans to run again in 2024, also wants to make the most negative assessment possible of Joe Biden, in a speech that sometimes brings the accent of the presidential campaign. “You can take the five worst presidents in the history of the United States, and put them together, they couldn’t have done the damage that Joe Biden has done to our country in less than two years.“, stated the 76-year-old Republican. The meeting began with a selection of images of Joe Biden stuttering in speeches.
During his first public appearance since the FBI search of his Mar-a-Lago residence, Donald Trump also admitted that this investigative action consisted of “strongest example of the real threats to American freedom“. “The shameful invasion and assault on my Mar-a-Lago home was a travesty of justice“, he insisted.
“Abuse of the law”
The FBI made this search because it suspected the former president of illegally storing confidential documents from his mandate at the White House (2017-2021). Federal investigators estimated that among the 30 boxes seized were classified documents “maybe hiddento block the investigation, a Justice Department document claims. But for Donald Trump, it “flagrant abuse of the law“bear fruit”a backlash like nothing seen before“.
The billionaire is also the target of investigations into his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election and his role in the violent attack on his supporters at the Capitol on January 6, 2021. He has not yet been charged.
The former president also questioned the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, which saw him lose to Joe Biden. “American elections should be decided by the American people. And it didn’t happen in 2020“, he said.
