Donald Trump Jr. said his father’s arraignment in Manhattan Tuesday has to spur Americans to action on the “Todd Starnes Show.”
“We’re in a battle for the soul of our country and right now we’re not winning,” Trump Jr. said. “This has to be a wake-up call for all Americans at just how far they will go.”
The 2024 presidential candidate’s son added that he is angry but also sad for the country.
Former President Trump was charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records during his arraignment in NYC Tuesday. He pled not guilty to all charges.
Many top Republicans, including former Vice President Mike Pence and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), have called Trump’s indictment “politically motivated.”
The former president has maintained that he is innocent and called Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against him a “witch hunt.”
Despite the ongoing attacks against Trump, his son said the former president was “cheery” during a phone call Tuesday morning.
“He’s used to it,” Trump Jr. said. “They’ve been trying to do this to him for seven years now.”
Trump Jr. called out the hypocrisy of those on the left who always tout “democracy” but are cheering as their number one political opponent is indicted.
He noted that for seven years, progressives have called Trump “a threat to democracy,” but now they’re “overjoyed,” saying, “This is the Super Bowl!”
Trump Jr. said he believes Trump is being targeted “because he’s the only one with the guts to do something about it,” referring to the corrupt bureaucrats and establishment politicians who run Washington D.C.
National radio host Todd Starnes agreed.
“I’m with Don Jr. I don’t see anybody else out there who can do what Trump is doing,” Starnes said before asking his audience, “Do you?”
