During a campaign event in Windham, New Hampshire, former President Donald Trump vehemently criticized his recent federal indictment. In his passionate address, Trump accused President Biden of being responsible for his legal troubles and claimed that the charges were designed to keep him away from the campaign trail.
This marked Trump’s first appearance in an early voting state since facing the charges related to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results. He took the opportunity to express his disdain for the indictment and accused his political opponents of attempting to divert his attention from his campaign.
Trump further asserted that the legal controversies were hindering his ability to attend events in crucial states like Iowa and New Hampshire. The crowd of supporters responded to his comments by chanting in agreement.
The former president currently faces charges connected to his actions leading up to the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, as well as his subsequent attempts to interfere with the certification of the 2020 presidential election results. He entered a plea of not guilty during his federal court arraignment in Washington D.C.
Despite these indictments, Trump remains a strong front-runner in the 2024 Republican presidential nomination race. He drew attention to polls that depict him as leading over his rivals and even joked about how another indictment could potentially secure his victory in the election.
Supporters in attendance at the campaign stop echoed Trump’s sentiments, with one individual stating that the indictments only heightened their dedication to the former president.
