President Donald J. Trump vowed to keep fighting the political persecution of the left and the Biden Justice Department Saturday at a Save America rally in Youngstown, Ohio.
Noting that the “fate of our country is at stake,” Trump said: “No matter what our deranged political establishment throws at me, no matter what they do to me, I will endure their torment and oppression, and I will do it very willingly. They will never get me to stop fighting for you, the American people.”
The remarks followed several troubling weeks that began Aug. 8 when the FBI raided his Florida residence of Mar-a-Lago.
The president, however, noted that political persecution is something he has faced many times before.
“For six straight years, I’ve been harassed, investigated, defamed, slandered, and persecuted like no other president – and probably like no one – in American history,” he said, “Yet all I’ve ever wanted and all we’ve ever fought for is to simply, very simply, Make America Great Again.”
In response to that remark, the crowd of supporters erupted into cheers and chants of “USA! USA!”
Among those supporters was MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who knows firsthand what that persecution feels like as well, having had his cell phone seized by the FBI earlier this week.
“[To] my supporters, what they’ve done – the radical Democrats and the Deep State – is a form of political repression unlike anything our nation has ever seen,” Trump said. “It’s a disgrace.”
Commending those individuals for their unwavering honesty and integrity, the president noted that eventually, the people behind the politically motivated investigations would get their comeuppance.
“Everyone associated with this travesty will go down as scoundrels and arsonists who tried to demolish our justice system, shatter our most sacred traditions, and wipe out the very foundations of our democracy for their own selfish, partisan gain,” he said.
