Former US President Donald Trump raised concerns on Wednesday about what he calls politically motivated trials aimed at locking him up for more than 500 years, prompting him to seek campaign donations to prove Americans’ resilience against “tyranny.”
In a fundraising email that surfaced through multiple US outlets, Trump referred to the “corrupt” government’s attempts to indict him unlawfully and claimed he might face a combined 561 years in prison due to what he termed “endless witch hunts” by the Left.
The email included a direct jab at President Joe Biden, whom Trump mockingly referred to as “Crooked Joe,” signaling his aggressive stance in the political arena:
“With Crooked Joe’s corrupt DOJ having unlawfully INDICTED yours truly yet again, reports indicate that I could now face a combined 561 YEARS in prison from the Left’s witch hunts”
Trump emphasized that these trials are not only about him but also an attempt to strip Americans of their freedom, calling on his supporters to “peacefully stand with me during these dark times.”
The latest indictment, released by special counsel Jack Smith on Tuesday, encompassed six charges related to the January 6, 2021 riot at the US Capitol. Smith asserted that Trump knowingly propagated false claims about election irregularities, leading to public mistrust and anger.
Trump also faced charges of obstruction of justice for allegedly destroying evidence related to classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. A separate New York court accused him of “falsifying business records” related to hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels, a porn actress.
Despite the legal challenges, Trump remains a strong contender for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, leading the pack of potential candidates. Democrats have opted not to hold debates between Biden and his challengers, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Marianne Williamson.
While Democrats maintain that Biden’s election was legitimate, with a record-breaking 81 million votes, Trump continues to assert that irregularities occurred. Time magazine’s feature on an “extraordinary shadow effort” to “fortify” the election further intensified the political divide.
