Former US President Donald Trump baselessly criticized what he called “prosecutor misconduct” at a campaign rally on Saturday night in Texas, denying any wrongdoing amid ongoing investigations. out in New York, Georgia and Washington.
During the event, Trump repeatedly referred to the investigations as politically motivated efforts to hinder his 2024 presidential bid but did not reveal any evidence about it.
“Prosecutor misconduct is their new tool and they are willing to use it at levels never seen before in our country. We’ve had it, but we’ve never had it like this,” he said. “We must stop them and we must not allow them to go through another election where they have yet another tool in their toolbox.”
Behind Trump, supporters waved signs printed by the Trump campaign that read: “Witch hunt.”
Trump called the investigations “nonsense” and said that local prosecutors in Manhattan and Fulton County are the “minions” of national Democrats.
“Our opponents have done everything possible to crush our spirit and break our will,” he stated. “But they have failed. They have only made us stronger.”
The rally at Waco Regional Airport was a return to mega-events reminiscent of Trump’s 2016 and 2020 campaigns, as the Republican field for the 2024 presidential race begins to take shape.
