UNITED STATES: US President Donald Trump disagreed with all possible indictments as he took an opportunity to intensify his political stance on his first presidential campaign rally for the 2024 elections on March 25.
Alvin Bragg, Manhattan District Attorney, is part of an ongoing investigation concerning a $130,000 payment from Trump to Stormy Daniels, a pornographic actress, weeks before the 2016 presidential elections.
Thousands of supporters of Donald Trump gathered at the former president’s election rally in Waco, Texas, on Saturday, showing solidarity for the ex-president with the ongoing criminal investigation concerning him. Many people in the crowds put on Trump T-shirts and hats and cheered for Marjorie Taylor Greene, one of Trump’s most important supporters in Congress, who appeared at the venue.
The former president told his supporters in Waco, Texas, “The district attorney of New York, under the auspices and direction of the ‘department of injustice’ in Washington, DC, was investigating me for something that is not a crime, not a misdemeanour, not an affair.” Using an extremely derogatory term for Daniels, he said, “I never liked ‘Horse Face’” adding, “That wouldn’t be the one. There is no one. We have a great First Lady.”
Laurie Hansen, a 57-year-old sales coordinator and a Trump supporter, said that “He’s the only one who can bring our country back,” adding, “We are at a precipice. It’s time to put our foot down and say, ‘No more.’”
Last week, former president said that he would be arrested soon and that his arrest would create political mayhem and “potential death and destruction” that would create havoc and enrage the masses. If he gets arrested soon by a grand jury convened by Bragg, he would be the first-ever former or sitting president to have been convicted of a crime.
