Former President Donald Trump weighed into the Biden administration for indicting him over his handling of classified documents this week and compared the current crop of White House leaders to the now-defunct Soviet Union.
During a speech Saturday at the Georgia Republican Convention, Trump drew a comparison to Stalin’s Soviet Union, highlighting his concerns. Additionally, he emphasized the need for America to “destroy the communists” in order to secure its future.
“This baseless indictment of me by the Biden Administration’s weaponized department of injustice, will go down as among the most horrific abuses of power in the history of our country,” Trump said. “Many people have said that, Democrats have even said it.”
“This vicious persecution is a travesty of justice. You’re watching Joe Biden – when you think of it, Biden is trying to jail his leading political opponent, an opponent that’s beating him by a lot in the polls,” he continued. “Just like they do in Stalinist Russia, or Communist China; no different.”

To save America, we’ll have to “destroy the communists,” he said.
“At the end of the day, either the communists win and destroy America, or we destroy the communists. Because that’s what they are,” Trump declared.
The former president also pledged to “never yield” following the Biden Administration’s indictment on Thursday.
“Everyone knows I’ve put everything on the line, and I will never yield, I never yield,” Trump told the crowd. “I will never be deterred; I will never stop fighting for you.”
“I didn’t need this, I had a great life,” he said sarcastically, drawing laughs. “People said, ‘Would you do it again,’ well, the answer is yes because we’re going to make America great again.”
