Donald Trump, former President of the United States, said on Tuesday that if he is elected to the White House again, he may put his political opponents in prison. These statements came during an interview with right-wing radio host Glenn Beck, who questioned the Republican candidate about the promise he made in 2016, when he said that he would “arrest” Hillary Clinton, the then presidential candidate, if he was elected.
“Do you regret not arresting Clinton? Glenn Beck asked: “If you became president again, would you arrest people?” Trump responded, saying: “The answer is there is no alternative, because that is what they want to do to us.”
The former president is currently charged with a total of 91 crimes in four legal proceedings, including suspicion of attempting to tamper with the 2020 election results in Georgia and illegally keeping secret documents at his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. North American press accounts indicate a total of 717 years in prison if convicted of all the crimes charged. Trump says he is innocent and considers himself a target of political persecution.
During the interview, Donald Trump also said that Democrats, as well as his opponents in general, are “sick people, bad people,” and held US President Joe Biden personally responsible for the operations he targets.
