The Trumpian Holiday Spirit
Mary ManleyWhile families across the US were enjoying the holiday, Trump was up to something else. Former President Donald Trump took to his social media platform Truth Social on Christmas Day to air grievances against his opponents including President Joe Biden, the US Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”2024 WILL GO DOWN AS THE YEAR OF GREAT AND FULLY COORDINATED ILLEGAL ELECTION INTERFERENCE BY CROOKED JOE BIDEN, THE WORST AND MOST CORRUPT PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES, THE DOJ, FBI, A.G.’s, & D.A.’s THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY,” he posted on Christmas morning.Perhaps the former president saw it as a gift to his followers to unwrap on Christmas morning.
Trump then wished a “Merry Christmas” to special counsel Jack Smith whom he called an “out of control lunatic”, and to: “World Leaders, both good and bad, but none of which are as evil and ‘sick’ as the THUGS we have inside our Country,” he wrote, before adding: “Open Borders, INFLATION, Afghanistan Surrender, Green New Scam, High Taxes, No Energy Independence… are looking to destroy our once great USA. MAY THEY ROT IN HELL. AGAIN, MERRY CHRISTMAS!”
The former president is facing a slurry of legal trials in 2024 which will most likely clash with his campaign to return to the Oval Office. Over a five-month span Trump was changed in four criminal cases: in Washington, DC he faces four felony counts for his alleged effort to overturn the 2020 election, he faces 13 felony countries in Georgia for election what is claimed to be interference, in New York he faces 34 felony counts for a hush money payment, and in Florida he faces more than 35 felony countries for stowing away classified documents after leaving office.AmericasUS Police Bolster Patrols for Colorado Judges Amid Violent Threats Over Trump Ballot Ruling26 December 2023, 23:53 GMTAnd yet, despite the former president’s legal troubles he remains the favorite among Republican voters and is presumed to win the GOP presidential nomination, according to polls.
