Ex-President Trump criticizes U.S. justice system again

Former US President Donald Trump criticized the US judiciary harshly once again during an appearance in New Hampshire. He stated that he couldn’t attend campaign events due to the ongoing legal proceedings against him.

Trump is the first president in American history who has to face court proceedings for alleged crimes. During a speech in Windham, he said, as per welt.de, that he could not attend campaign events because he would have to sit in a courtroom for “bullshit.” “This is going to be the future of elections in America, where a sitting president tells his attorney general to indict to try to bring down the opponent,” Trump said, further railing against the American justice system.

Trump still does not recognize Biden’s election victory

Last week, the 77-year-old had to face the accusation in court that he had attempted to overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election. Trump lost to the Democrat Joe Biden at that time. To this day, the former president has not acknowledged his defeat in the election and continues to spread lies about election fraud and similar claims. He has also frequently lamented that the charges against him represent political persecution. This new indictment is already the second on a federal level and the third overall that has been pursued against Trump. Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special prosecutor for the federal-level investigations against Trump to ensure independence. However, the investigation and court proceedings have not harmed him. Within the party, the Republican still maintains a significant lead.
