Trump will appeal trial and predicts a country in flames if he is imprisoned

Supporters of the former president threaten that the attack on the Capitol “will be child's play” if Trump goes to jail.

Former US President Donald Trump (2017-2021) this Friday avoided talking about the question that everyone in the United States is asking today about whether he will go to jail and how that will affect his presidential campaign, and dedicated himself to paint a country on fire because of Joe Biden's Government.

The Republican candidate 'in pectore' - who has yet to be proclaimed in July - appeared at the Trump Tower on his property on Fifth Avenue and spoke for a long half hour, without allowing questions, flanked by his campaign team and a row of flags Americans.

He dedicated much of his words to discussing the legality of the trial that ended Thursday with a guilty verdict on 34 counts and announced that he will appeal based on numerous arguments, such as that Judge Juan Merchan prevented the appearance of numerous witnesses and also prevented him from speaking on numerous occasions.

“We are losing our country”; “we have a corrupt country, with corrupt elections”; “we are at 36 trillion (dollars of debt)”; “Unprecedented numbers of terrorists are coming to our country” or “we have open borders” were his main messages.

“Trumpism” on a civil war footing

Xenophobia against China and Venezuela

The extremist tycoon did not miss one of his favorite topics, that of immigration, by emphasizing that Biden's 'open door' policy "allows people from unknown countries to enter the country, from unknown places, with languages ​​that one I had never heard before.”

He cited three countries in particular as the origin of this migratory wave: Democratic Republic of the Congo, China and Venezuela.

But what's happening here? “It's like they're raising an army!” he said.
