Trump, the persecuted
Tomorrow will be an unlikely day for Donald Trump, who will voluntarily go to court in Manhattan to be impeached. More than thirty charges weigh on the former president, who dreams of this image of victim to boost his candidacy for the next elections to the presidency of the United States.
Barely caricaturing, one would think that Trump has already staged his court appearance in order to get the most spectacular media images. Namely the mandatory taking of the photo and fingerprints of the first ex-president of the United States to be criminally charged.
If he could leave Trump Tower in front of the cameras and ride in an open limo, hair blowing, through the streets of Manhattan to the cheers of his well-wishers, he would. But the secret services responsible for his protection will refuse to comply with his delusions.
There are those who would believe that this impeachment will lead to riots around the country like those that occurred during the storming of the Capitol in Washington on January 6, 2021. Is Trump dreaming that he has the power to escape justice by inciting thousands of his supporters to take to the streets and demonstrate in his favour? Already ten days ago he promised that “death and destruction” would follow if he were indicted.
The election of Donald Trump in 2016 considerably weakened the power of the United States. Tomorrow we will understand why. The charges against him have nothing to do with his extramarital affair with an ex-porn star. Rather, it is a criminal offense for violating campaign finance laws while a presidential candidate.
Trump claims he is the victim of partisan persecution on the part of the Manhattan district attorney, speaking of “election interference at the highest level”. Ironically, this is exactly the charge that a grand jury in the state of Georgia could soon bring against him.
Trump continues to pollute American politics.
