Trump Promises to Prosecute Democrats as President: ‘They’re Doing It to Us’

Former President Donald Trump has vowed to prosecute Democrats if he is elected to office again in 2024.

Trump made these comments while speaking with The Blaze founder and conservative radio host Glenn Beck on Tuesday. He suggested that President Joe Biden and other elected Democrats could face investigations and indictments from a Trump Department of Justice.

Trump has been indicted four times in roughly four months. Beck asked Trump about his 2016 campaign and the “lock her up” chants against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. He asked how Trump intends to handle prosecutions against political prosecutions if he wins the White House again.

“You said in 2016, you know, ‘lock her up,’ and then when you became president, you said, we don’t do that in America, that’s just not the right thing to do,” Beck said. “That’s what they’re doing. Do you regret not locking her up? And if you’re president again, will you lock people up?”

“The answer is,” Trump said, “you’ll have no choice because they’re doing it to us.”

“I always had such great respect for the office of the president … I never hit Biden as hard as I could have,” he continued. “And then I heard that he was trying to indict me. And it was him that was doing it, you know. I don’t think he’s sharp enough to think about much, but he was there. He was probably the one giving the order.”

“These are sick people. These are evil people,” he said.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump had threatened Clinton with a federal investigation.

“And I’ll tell you what. I didn’t think I’d say this, but I’m going to say it, and I hate to say it,” Trump told Clinton during one debate. “But if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there has never been so many lies, so much deception.”
