In a speech that lasted over 90 minutes in Derry, New Hampshire, former President Donald Trump didn’t hold back, comparing himself to an iconic black hero and taking aim at President Joe Biden.
Trump’s Dramatic Derry Address
In a dramatic and highly anticipated appearance in Derry, New Hampshire, former President Donald Trump addressed a packed crowd of supporters at an event that was not just about paperwork; it was a stage for Trump to express his views on numerous pressing issues.
Trump’s Wild Claims
The former president launched into a critique of his successor, Joe Biden, alleging that the current president was the scheming individual behind the criminal indictments he now faces, “This is done by the Biden White House,” he said.
Trump’s Outrageous Comparison Attempt
One of the most shocking moments in his speech was comparing his legal struggles to the plight of Nelson Mandela.
Trump didn’t shy away from taking on Biden’s economic policies, sharply criticizing his handling of the nation’s finances.
A Swing at Biden’s Immigration Policy
In addition to economic matters, Trump also took a swing at Biden’s immigration policies, after a record-breaking surge of illegal migrants during the month of September.
Filing for 2024
This event marked a pivotal moment in Trump’s political career as he formally filed the paperwork required to participate in the New Hampshire primary.
A Confident Trump
The former president projected an air of confidence about his prospects, confidently asserting his intention to retake the White House.
Trump’s Answers to World Conflict
Trump outlined his vision for resolving the world’s latest conflicts, promising to “restore peace through strength” and “prevent World War Three.”
With 91 charges across four criminal cases hanging over him, Trump alleged that these were politically motivated actions orchestrated by the Biden White House, “nobody ever got indicted as a political opponent,” he said.
Department of Justice’s Stance
In stark contrast to Trump’s claims, the Department of Justice has repeatedly emphasized that these cases are handled independently and without political interference.
Trump injected some humor into his speech by responding to two more rumored indictments against him, saying that the Justice Department will retract them since they “go up in the polls” every time he gets charged.
The Trump-Mandela Comparison
Donald Trump likened himself to Nelson Mandela, the former South African president who was unfairly convicted to 27 years in prison for standing up against apartheid during white rule.
The comparison was made as Trump declared his mission to save the country from what he described as “fascists” and “lunatics.”
Trumping the Competition
Trump boasted about his substantial lead in primary polls, highlighting what he perceived as a lack of charisma in his competitors, “Did you ever see a campaign as bad? You’ve got to have some personality,” he said about Ron DeSantis.
Ron DeSantis’s Campaign
He also took a jab at Florida governor Ron DeSantis, once seen as a strong contender, suggesting that his campaign was faltering and he was “dying like a falling bird from the sky.”
Nikki Haley’s Challenge
Acknowledging competition from Nikki Haley, the former UN ambassador and former South Carolina governor, Trump made it clear that he wasn’t underestimating her.
Criticism of Former Officials
Former administration officials did not escape Trump’s scrutiny, even nicknaming one of them “Birdbrain.”
Attacks on Biden
Trump’s fiercest attacks were reserved for President Joe Biden, claiming that the current President was turning the country “into a hotbed for jihadists and make our cities into dumping grounds.”
Hardline Immigration Stance
On immigration, Trump reaffirmed his commitment to reinstate travel bans from select Muslim-majority countries and introduce new ideological tests for immigrants.
