“He’s an enemy of the state,” the Republican billionaire told the crowd, responding to scathing attacks from Joe Biden, who two days earlier said Donald Trump “and the Republicans he represents” threaten the foundation of our republic. .
“His speech is nothing but hate and anger,” Donald Trump condemned, adding that Mr. Biden accused his supporters of portraying them as “threats to democracy” and “enemies of the state.”
“He is the enemy of the state, and the group that controls him,” the former president continued, calling for the November 8 midterm elections in Pennsylvania, a key state where control of the two bedrooms will be at stake.
In his first public appearance since the FBI’s spectacular search of his Florida home in Mar-a-Lago on Aug. 8, he said the investigation was “a stark example of the very real threats weighing on Americans’ freedoms.” The most shocking abuse of power by an administration in American history”.
“The disgraceful raid and raid at my home in Mar-a-Lago was a travesty of justice,” insisted the former president, who has openly flirted with a new candidate in 2024.
The FBI conducted the search because it suspected the former president of illegally possessing classified documents from his tenure in the White House (2017-2021).
A Justice Department document says federal investigators believe the 30 boxes seized contained classified documents that were hidden to hinder the investigation.
