Donald Trump on Friday made it perfectly clear why he believes Joe Biden has made the unprecedented decision to allow a former president to be indicted, despite the bad precedent it sets and what it will do to the country.
“Tucker Carlson, a very good guy, is exactly right,” Trump said in response to a recent video posted to Twitter by the former Fox News star discussing the indictment (see video below).
“The number one reason the totally corrupt Biden Administration and the sick Washington Establishment are after me is because I stand up to their failed foreign policy agenda,” Trump continued.
“The one thing that Washington can not forgive is that I put America First, always put America First, could never help it. I have to do that in order to Make America Great Again,” he said. “I reject their foolish and disastrous foreign wars, their horrific globalist trade deals, their open borders catastrophes, their corruption of our intelligence system, and it’s never been more corrupt, and all of the other betrayals of the American people.
“Most recently, the warmongers, globalists, and deep staters are absolutely livid that I refuse to bend the knee to their next endless war in Ukraine. I want peace!” he declared. “They want money, and they want conflict, even if it means walking us into the brink of WW3.
“Which frankly, it is doing, and it is doing it rapidly. I want people to stop dying! I want to end that war,” he continued. “I’ll end that war between those two countries in 24 hours. It won’t even take that long. I will get the war ended.
“I will stop all of those lives from being wasted and lost. And they’ll be no more bombing of Ukraine. They’ll be no more bombing of Russia. And everybody will be happy,” Trump said.
“That’s why, despite the massive criminality and corruption of the Clintons, the Bidens, the Obamas, and all the rest, none of them ever get indicted or ever get investigated. They’re totally protected by a fake and disgusting system. But I did everything right, and the system tries to throw me right into jail.”
“They can’t beat me at the ballot box so they’re out there trying to take me out by other means, anything they can think of. These people don’t love our country,” the former president added. “As I’ve said before, if I renounced my beliefs or if I stayed silent, the persecution would stop.
“If I didn’t run for office or if I wasn’t leading by a lot, it would all end and end very nicely. I would have a much easier life. But I can’t do that, and I won’t do that,” he said.
