President Trump called on the Republican Party on Thursday, urging them to “get tougher and smarter” as he continues to face indictments and legal battles ahead of the 2024 GOP presidential primary and general elections next year.
“Remember, all of these Indictments, Federal, State, and Local, were conceived and generated by Crooked Joe Biden and his staff of Radical Left Lunatics and Thugs for purposes of interfering with the 2020 Presidential Election,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.
On Monday evening, Trump was arraigned in Georgia on 41 counts related to an investigation into his phone calls that were made in 2020 to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. The charges were brought by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis.
18 Trump allies were additionally charged in the case.
The president continued in his comments, “None of these trials should be allowed to begin prior to the Election. Republicans must get tougher and smarter, FAST!”
As reported by RSBN, DA Willis has proposed a trial date of March 4, 2024, in the case, which is just one day before the anticipated “Super Tuesday” of the primary election season.
Additionally, Willis has also asked that the arraignment for the defendants now take place tentatively on Sept. 5.
Trump’s indictment in Georgia is his fourth indictment of the year. Republicans have rallied around the president, eviscerating it as a politicized witch hunt.
“Today’s indictment is just the latest political attack in the Democrats’ WITCH HUNT against President Trump,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, wrote on X in response to the charges.
Interestingly, the projected timeline of the president’s courtroom schedule in his series of cases seems as if it will majorly intersect with the 2024 presidential primary election season.
Via RSBN, trial dates have been proposed from January 2024 to May 2024 so far, intersecting with what should otherwise be a time of heavy ground game campaigning.
