President Donald Trump spoke about the political and legal persecution he is enduring amidst his bid to reclaim the White House in 2024, speaking in Washington, D.C., on Friday evening to conservative women at the CWALAC Leadership Summit dinner finale.
“I am that wall,” he declared, referring to his role in protecting Americans from the onslaught of tyrannical attacks on Americans. “…They want to silence me because I will never let them silence YOU.”
The president touched on the indictments he has faced this year, as well as “deranged Jack Smith,” the special counsel who has been appointed to oversee federal charges against him. He highlighted Smith’s recent request to a D.C. court to slap the president with a gag order in a federal case being overseen by U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan, per Politico.
“Our enemies want to stop us because we are the only ones that can stop them,” Trump said.
He additionally noted that he considered it a “great badge of honor” to be indicted, “because in a true sense, I’m being indicted for YOU.”
The president’s appearance in D.C. on Friday night was the first of two speeches delivered in the nation’s capital. He discussed Biden’s failing legislative policies, abortion, and foreign policy.
“Blessed are the peacemakers,” he reminded the crowd, quoting a passage from the Bible. “…I will be your peacemaker.”
