Trump is speaking up and taking no prisoners. The former President walked onto the podium to the chants of “USA, USA!” to address the nation after his arrest. “We have to save our country,” Trump thundered from his home at Mar-a-Lago, his voice ringing out across the assembled crowd. “I never thought that anything like this could happen in America,” he lamented.

The crime he was accused of? Nothing more than “protecting the country from those who would seek to destroy it,” he explained.

Trump spoke of the FBI and DOJ working “in collusion” with Twitter and Facebook to silence anyone who dared to speak out against the Hunter Biden laptop, which he claimed exposed the Biden family as criminals. “It would have made a 17-point difference in the election result, according to the pollsters,” he bellowed.

“Our country is going to hell,” Trump declared citing fifty former intelligence officers who had confirmed that the Hunter Biden laptop was “Russian disinformation.” The President was speaking up and taking no prisoners, fully aware that he had nothing left to lose.

Even those who weren’t his biggest fans had acknowledged, Trump pointed out, that this was “not the right thing” to do. “It’s an insult to our country,” he said, his voice dripping with contempt for those who had sought to bring him down.

In a fiery political rally speech, Trump warned that we were “not far away from a nuclear war.” He accused the Democrats of “stepping up their efforts” by indicting him, the 45th President of the United States, who had received 75 million votes – more than any sitting President in history.

Trump spoke at length about the FBI raid at Mar-a-Lago that had taken his passports and medical records. “I immediately thought of the Fourth Amendment that protects against unreasonable search and seizure,” he explained. “But they did it anyway because our justice system has become lawless. They’re using it now.”

He spoke about everything he went through, including the investigation through the Espionage Act of 1917, “where the penalty is death.” Referring to the classified documents saga, he claimed that as President, he has the right to declassify documents. “If I take them with me, it’s automatic,” he said.

But it was the civil investigation that had been launched against him by Letitia James that really seemed to irk the former President. “This is a persecution, not an investigation,” he fumed. “She’s put our family through hell,” he said. “It cost hundreds of millions of dollars to defend,” said Trump, “but we hold our heads high.”

Despite the prospect of a potential settlement, Trump made it clear that he wanted no part of it. His family had gone through too much already. He spoke with a vulnerability and raw emotion that would raise grave concern among the ideologically non-infested part of America – and that group constitutes a substantial segment of the country.

“I have a Trump-hating judge with the Trump-hating wife and family whose daughter worked for Kamala Harris,” said Trump of Acting New York Supreme Court Judge Juan Merchan.

As he addressed the nation, Trump was resolute in his conviction that the American economy was spiraling downwards and inflation was skyrocketing.

“Our economy is crashing, inflation is out of control,” he said.

“Russia has joined with China. Can you believe that? Saudi Arabia has joined with Iran. China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea have formed together as a menacing and destructive coalition. This would have never happened if I were your President” he added.

Trump bluntly declared that the current Biden administration had wreaked more havoc on the country than the collective damage caused by the five worst Presidents in American history.

“If you took the five worst presidents in the history of the United States and added them up, they would not have done near the destruction to our country as Joe Biden and the Biden administration have done,” Trump declared.

Clocking in at a succinct twenty-five minutes, the speech was comparatively different from Trump’s typical habit of going off-script and delivering long-winded speeches. Nonetheless, his legal woes persist.
