Former President Donald Trump responded to President Joe Biden’s divisive attempt at intimidating conservatives across America while speaking at his most recent “Save America” rally in Pennsylvania, giving a huge speech in defiance of the Biden administration’s continued attempts to silence the likely presidential contender and his supporters — along with a boost to Republican candidates Doug Mastriano and Mehmet Oz.

Trump got right after it, decrying those responsible for the unprecedented raid on his Florida home.
“There’s only one party that’s waging war on American democracy by censoring free speech, criminalizing dissent,” Trump said, referring to Democrats. “You see that happening. Disarming law-abiding citizens by issuing lawless mandates and unconstitutional orders, imprisoning political protesters. That’s what they’re doing. Rigging elections, weaponizing the Justice Department and the FBI like never ever before, and raiding and breaking into the homes of their political opponents. I wonder who that could be?”
“Republicans in the ‘MAGA’ movement are not the ones trying to undermine our democracy. We are the ones trying to save our democracy,” the former president added. “The danger to democracy comes from the radical left, not from the right.”
Trump focused directly on the Department of Justice for their role in approving the Mar-a-Lago raid.
“[There] could be no more vivid example of the very real threats to American freedom than just a few weeks ago. You saw, when we witnessed one of the most shocking abuses of power by any administration in American history,” he said. “The shameful raid and breaking into my home, Mar-a-Lago, was a travesty of justice. It made a mockery of America’s laws, traditions and principles before the entire world. The entire world was watching, and they’re shocked. They’re shocked.”
The former president also pointed out that the people in the FBI and DOJ going after him are the same that did nothing about Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
“Think of that? Yet now, the same people, the exact same people, are sending the FBI storming through the home of their No. 1 political rival,” the former president said. “It’s a disgrace, a disgrace, like possibly never before. Our country has never seen anything like, if they talk about documents not being properly stored, we had. They go in and take documents, dump them on the floor, stage a photo shoot, and pretend that I had done it, like I had put them all over the floor.”
“You’re all enemies of the state,” Trump noted before arguing that Biden is actually the one who is “an enemy of the state.”
Trump called on Americans to make sure they vote in the upcoming elections, emphasizing the importance of pushing back against the Biden administration’s aggression.
“Above all, this election is a referendum on the corruption and extremism of Joe Biden and the radical Democrat Party,” he said. “If you want to stop this destruction of America, you must vote Republican. You gotta get out and vote.”
