Donald Trump has doubled down on claims he is the victim of a “witch hunt” – and says he is being framed for “treason”.
Speaking on Saturday in Georgia and North Carolina, he called it “one of the most horrific abuses of power in our country”, a “vicious persecution” and a “travesty of justice” by Joe Biden’s administration.
It was his first public appearance since he was charged with 37 felony counts in connection with hoarding classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida.
“They’ve launched one witch hunt after another to try and stop our movement, to thwart the will of the American people,” Mr. Trump said – later adding: “In the end, they’re not coming after me. They’re coming after you.”
The US president insisted he won the 2020 election, saying: “We have fake elections, we have no borders, we have inflation.”
And he repeated an assertion that he had done nothing wrong – arguing he had been covered by the Presidential Records Act.
“This whole fake indictment, they don’t even once mention the Presidential Records Act … because they want to use something called the Espionage Act,” he said.
100’s of supporters, some waving “Witch Hunt” signs, showed up to an airfield in Georgia to greet Trump as he arrived.
Jan Plemmons, 66, wearing an oversize foam “Make America Great Again” hat, called the federal charges “absolutely ridiculous” and said she was ready to campaign with Mr Trump.
Another supporter, 67-year-old Michael Sellers, said it was “criminal what they’re doing” to him.
