If former President Donald J. Trump is worried about the latest round of charges by Special Counsel Jack Smith he sure didn’t show it in a rousing speech to Alabama Republicans.
On Friday, the embattled 2024 GOP frontrunner delivered the keynote address at the Alabama state Republican Party’s summer meeting which was held at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel in Montgomery, his first speech since his indictment for his alleged role in the January 6, 2021 chaos at the Capitol.
“Every time the radical left Democrats, Marxists, communists and fascists indict me, I consider it a truly great badge of honor,” the former president said. “Because I’m being indicted for you.”

“On Election Day 2024, we are going to evict crooked Joe Biden from the White House. We are going to expel the criminals and thugs from the halls of power in Washington. And we are going to make America great again,” he said.
Trump praised the MAGA movement which he said, “has been the only force in American politics that has ever dared to stand up to the entire corrupt political establishment.”
“We said no to open borders, no to globalist trade deals, no to endless wars and no to the Godless values of the communist left,” he said. “We always put America first.”
“In response, our enemies unleashed an army of rabid left-wing lawyers, corrupt Marxist prosecutors, deranged government agents and rogue intelligence officers to try to stop our movement,” the former president added.
“As an example, every one of these many fake charges filed against me by the corrupt Biden DOJ could have been filed 2½ years ago, but they waited and waited until I became dominant in the polls,” Trump said. “And then they filed them all, including local DAs and AGs, and other cases, right in the middle of my campaign, where I am leading the Republicans by a lot and also leading Biden by a lot.”
He said that the regime’s weaponizing of the legal system against him is “called election interference — a commonly used tactic in Third World countries.”
“Biden and his protectors know he cannot win this race any other way, so they are trying election interference,” he said. “The reason this is happening is simple: Joe Biden is the most incompetent and corrupt president in U.S. history.”
“The Biden crime family was taking in money from China, Ukraine, Russia and so many more. And now, every time more Biden corruption is exposed, his henchmen indict me the very next day,” Trump added. “It’s called a cover-up.”
Hours before he took the stage, the nation’s 45th president posted a defiant message to his Truth Social platform that has badly rattled his persecutors.
“IF YOU GO AFTER ME, I’M COMING AFTER YOU!” Trump wrote.

Late Friday, the Biden Justice Department reacted to Trump’s “threat” by asking the Obama-appointed judge who was picked to preside over the case which will be tried in the most hostile environment possible for the ex-POTUS for a protective order which would place limitations on his ability to defend himself in the public square.

“The Truth post cited is the definition of political speech, and was in response to the RINO, China-loving, dishonest special interest groups and Super PACs, like the ones funded by the Koch Brothers and the club for No Growth,” a Trump spokesperson said in a statement, denying that the post as directed at Smith and his team.

“They want to take away my freedom because I will never let them take away your freedom,” Trump told the crowd. “They want to silence me because I will never let them silence you.
“In the end, they’re not after me, they’re after you — and I’m just standing in their way,” he said. “The deep state is destroying our nation. But the tables must turn, and we will destroy the deep state.”
