Former President Donald Trump in a recent speech delivered in New Hampshire ,expressed profound concerns regarding the upcoming 2024 election, asserting that it is already on a trajectory towards being “another rigged election.
According to a report by Raw Story on Saturday, December 16, 2023 Trump, who previously led a rally in the state, took the opportunity to address not only his legal challenges but also what he perceives as a broader issue of election integrity.
During his speech, Trump did not shy away from making controversial remarks, notably stating that immigrants are “poisoning” the blood of the country.
However, his primary focus shifted to the legal battles he is entangled in.
Trump took to his own social media platform, Truth Social, to lament the additional burden imposed on him, alleging that he has to simultaneously combat politically motivated lawsuits while running a presidential campaign.
“Look, it is what it is, but isn’t it unfair that I can be running such a great and successful campaign for President, leading in every poll against a corrupt and incompetent President, working so hard in a historic fight to save our Nation, and I have to go through the additional burden of, at the same time, fighting my political opponent’s many DOJ, A.G., and D.A. inspired non-meritorious lawsuits against me,” Trump wrote.
The former president went on to suggest a direct connection between the numerous legal challenges he is facing and the current administration, insinuating that President Joe Biden is orchestrating these prosecutions and allegations against him.
According to Trump, these legal battles are not merely legal disputes but constitute an “evil act of ELECTION INTERFERENCE.”
“Joe Biden, and the thugs that surround him, should never be allowed to get away with this evil act of ELECTION INTERFERENCE,” Trump insisted in his social media post.
In an attempt to bolster his claims, Trump drew attention to an opinion piece in The Wall Street Journal.
The article accused Special Counsel Jack Smith of politicizing the trial schedule by seeking involvement from the Supreme Court.
Trump highlighted a specific excerpt from the editorial, quoting, “As we warned Mr. Smith (Deranged Jack) and A.G. Merrick Garland, indicting Mr. Trump would thrust them into the middle of an election campaign.
This (the lawsuits) would have unintentional and perhaps damaging consequences. The wiser decision would have been… to let the voters decide.”
Building upon this narrative, Trump continued to assert that the ongoing legal proceedings against him are part of a broader strategy to interfere with the democratic process, casting doubt on the fairness of the upcoming election.
He reiterated his concerns, stating, “THIS IS ALREADY ON ITS WAY TO BEING ANOTHER RIGGED ELECTION!”
This rhetoric from the former president reflects not only his apprehensions about the legal challenges he faces but also a broader narrative that questions the legitimacy of the electoral process.
Accusations of election interference and claims of a rigged system have been recurring themes in Trump’s discourse, contributing to a polarized political landscape.
As the 2024 election approaches, Trump’s assertions and the controversies surrounding them are likely to play a significant role in shaping public perceptions and discussions about the integrity of the democratic process.
The former president’s ability to mobilize support and influence the narrative will undoubtedly impact the political landscape in the lead-up to the election and beyond.
