President Trump gave a speech Tuesday afternoon to supporters in Windham, New Hampshire mainly focused on veterans. As TGP reported earlier, thousands stood in line in the rain to attend.
After speaking about his record and proposals for veteran care, Trump covered other topics. Eventually the subject of his persecution by the Brandon administration came up:
How can my corrupt political opponent, crooked Brandon, put me on trial during an election campaign that I’m winning by a lot, but forcing me nevertheless to spend time and money away from the campaign trail in order to fight bogus, made up accusations and charges? That’s what they’re doing.
I’m sorry I won’t be able to go to Iowa today, I won’t be able to go to New Hampshire today because I’m sitting in a court room on bull**** because his attorney general charged me with something.
Crowd chants, “Bull****!”
