In his first public reappearance after the search of his Mar-a-Lago mansion, the former president has dropped his intention to run again for the presidential elections: “Maybe I have to go back”
The former president of the United States Donald Trump (2017-2021) entered the electoral campaign for the legislative elections with force this Saturday, attacking his successor, Joe Biden, and making it clear that they will not be able to silence him and that the true enemy for the United States is the Democratic president.
“The enemy of the state is him and the group that controls him,” he said at a rally in Pennsylvania, a state to which he has gone to support Mehmet Oz‘s candidacy for the Senate in the November 8 elections and that of Doug Mastriano for governor, and where he has stressed that the Republicans will return to “make America great again”.
His mass bath has taken place in a Wilkes-Barre pavilion and has been focused both on responding to the current White House tenant, who on Thursday considered him a danger to democracy and on defending the MAGA movement, an acronym for ” Make America Great Again,” which was his campaign and presidency slogan.
“The danger to democracy comes from the radical left, not from the right,” Trump has pointed out, estimating that the mid-term elections will be a referendum on “shooting inflation,” the “millions and millions of immigrants” entering illegally in the country or the “corruption and extremism of Joe Biden and the Democratic Party”.
“The Democrats are engaged in a desperate attempt to prevent me from returning to the White House , where they know I will clean up this mess again. They want to prevent us from completing our mission to restore American values,” he stressed.
Trump has stressed that this battle against him will not be able to with him: “We will make America great again. I will never turn my back on you and you will never turn my back on me because we love our country and we will save our nation from the people who are trying to destroy it.
Wink to 2024 presidential
In 2022 and in the 2024 presidential elections, he added, the Republicans must “return power to the people” because, otherwise, the country “will be destroyed.” With that motivation, he has again hinted at his presidential intentions, without announcing them openly: “I ran twice and won twice. I did better in the second than in the first. We had many millions more votes. Maybe I have to do it again.” new”.
“This is the year in which we are going to recover the Senate and the House of Representatives. And most importantly: in 2024 we will recover our magnificent White House “, Trump has advanced, who has criticized the fact that the United States currently has a president in charge “cognitively impaired.”
This appearance has been his first rally since his mansion in Mar-a-Lago ( Florida ) was searched on August 8 by the FBI in search of classified documents that he took from the White House when he left power and Trump had advanced that It was going to be epic.
Until now, he had expressed himself mainly through his own social network, Truth Social, with continuous messages where this Saturday he has denounced, for example, that the FBI “is totally corrupt”, that he “spied” on his presidential campaign or that ” indiscriminately stole” everything he saw at hand in the “break-in” of his house.
“They not only raided my house but also the hopes and dreams of every citizen for whom I have fought,” says the former president, who denounced that they even searched the room of his young son, Barron Trump, 16 years old.
Democrats, he insists, are trying to silence him. “They are trying to silence me and, most importantly, they are trying to silence you, but we will not be silenced,” he added in Pennsylvania, a key state in all elections, where Biden won in the 2020 presidential election and Trump in the 2020 election.
The importance of that state makes it not surprising that, two months before the mid-term elections, it has been the scene of various public acts by both politicians, with Trump this Saturday and Biden both last Thursday and this coming Monday.
But Trump’s two-hour speech has not focused only on current national issues. With him in the presidency, in his opinion, Russia would never have invaded Ukraine: “I was by far the toughest president with Russia. I guarantee you one thing: Putin would never have gone to Ukraine with me .”
