Former President and 2024 frontrunner Donald Trump ripped the DC Appeals Court’s recent decision to deny him presidential immunity, saying without legal protections future Chief Executives will be “extorted and blackmailed” by their political opponents.
From the Desk of Donald Trump:
If a President does not have Immunity, the Opposing Party, during his/her term in Office, can extort and blackmail the President by saying that, “if you don’t give us everything we want, we will Indict you for things you did while in Office,” even if everything done was totally Legal and Appropriate. That would be the end of the Presidency, and our Country, as we know it, and is just one of the many Traps there would be for a President without Presidential Immunity. Obama, Bush, and soon, Crooked Joe Biden, would all be in PRISON. Protect Presidential Immunity. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
