Former President Donald Trump, blaming President Joe Biden for the indictments he’s facing, says he’ll have “no choice” when it comes to jailing political opponents if he’s elected as president, as “they’re doing it to us.”
“I always had such great respect for the office of the president and the presidency,” Trump said in an interview with radio host Glenn Beck on Tuesday, adding that he “never hit” President Joe Biden “as hard as I could have,” reports Mediaite.
“Then I heard he was trying to indict me and that it was him doing it,” Trump told Beck.
His comments came after Beck asked if he regrets not locking up his 2016 presidential election challenger Hillary Clinton, despite his calls during the campaign to “lock her up.”
“Then when you became president, you said, ‘We don’t do that in America.’ That’s just not the right thing to do. That’s what they’re doing,'” Beck said. “If you’re president again, will you lock people up?”
Trump further told Beck that he doesn’t think Biden is “sharp enough to think about much, but he was there, and he was probably the one giving the order” to indict him.
“[It is] hard to believe that he even thinks about that because he’s gone,” said Trump. “But then I said, well, they’re actually trying to indict me because every one of these indictments is him, including [Manhattan District Attorney Alvin] Bragg.”
Trump further accused Biden of putting “his top person into the office of the Manhattan district attorney” and accused the administration of being in “total coordination with Fani Willis,” the district attorney in Fulton County, Georgia, the prosecutor in the elections case filed against Trump and several co-defendants.
“The woman that I never met, that they accused me of rape, that’s being run by a Democrat, a Democrat operative, and paid for by the Democrat Party,” Trump further told Beck. “You know, so many of these days, I have a couple of other lawsuits all funded against me by the Democrats. But these are sick people. These are evil people.”
