Former US President Donald Trump vehemently criticized the ongoing legal actions that are jeopardizing his potential re-election campaign in 2024. He expressed his frustration on Tuesday, asserting that these legal proceedings would significantly impede his ability to actively participate in campaign activities.
Addressing a rally in New Hampshire shortly after his third indictment in four months, Trump vehemently criticized what he perceived as baseless investigations led by “deranged” officials. These investigations revolve around allegations of illegal retention of national security information, falsification of business records, and an alleged attempt to subvert an election process through corrupt means.
Trump, who stands as the prominent frontrunner in the Republican presidential primary, offered an unsubstantiated claim that President Joe Biden was orchestrating these investigations in response to Trump’s favorable polling numbers.
During the rally in Windham, which is recognized as one of the more Republican-leaning towns in New Hampshire, Trump raised concerns about the implications of his legal battles on his campaign efforts. He highlighted the potential inconvenience of courtroom appearances during the election period, stating, “How can my corrupt political opponent, crooked Joe Biden, put me on trial during an election campaign that I’m winning by a lot but forcing me nevertheless to spend time and money away from the campaign trail in order to fight bogus made-up accusations and charges?”
He criticized the notion of being compelled to attend court proceedings while needing to prioritize campaign activities in key states like Iowa and New Hampshire.
While Trump has made claims about leading the polls, factual data from influential polling averages like RealClearPolitics indicates that he has only outperformed Biden in two of the 14 major opinion polls since June. The remaining polls showed either Biden leading or ties between the two.
Trump’s recent indictment, which centers on his actions related to the January 6, 2021 insurrection at the US Capitol, is the most serious among multiple criminal investigations he is facing. These investigations have resulted in numerous felony charges, encompassing issues such as hush money payments to a porn star and the handling of classified documents.
Trump is currently scheduled to face criminal trials starting in March and May of the upcoming year. He also anticipates further charges in relation to the same alleged conspiracy, this time focused on the state of Georgia.
Despite the legal challenges, Trump asserted that his popularity among Republicans has risen since the commencement of these criminal cases. Alongside these legal battles, Trump is concurrently involved in a lawsuit stemming from a sex abuse case and is facing a $250 million lawsuit from New York State, alleging business fraud with a trial set to commence in October.
