Former President Donald Trump Enjoys Legal Charges and Investigations as They “Expose” His Political Opponents
Former President Donald Trump addressed the newly unsealed federal indictment against him on Saturday at the North Carolina Republican Party’s convention in Greensboro. Trump was indicted on 37 federal counts, including willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice, and false statements.
Despite the gravity of the charges against him, Trump said that he “sort of enjoys it” when his political opponents launch legal charges and investigations against him. In his speech, he claimed that the investigations “expose” the motivations of his opponents. He further alleged that his opponents are trying to “thwart the will of the American people” and engage in election interference.

During his speech, Trump also referenced the various investigations targeting him since he was elected president in 2016. He mentioned the impeachment proceedings brought against him and the findings of Special Counsel John Durham, who released a report last month on his investigation into whether Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. Durham found that there was never any information to justify opening the FBI’s investigation and that the bureau and the Department of Justice “failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law.”

“We beat it all off, didn’t we?” Trump said. “They put our country through hell, and they knew it was a lie the entire time.”
Trump then suggested that any Republican who becomes president will be the subject of similar investigations and will succumb to unending political attacks, as he has.
“That person will not be able to withstand the fire,” he said. “And they actually admit it. They come to me: ‘How do you stand this?’ And I usually look at them and say, ‘In a sick way I sort of enjoy it because it exposes them.’ It exposes them for what they are. And it’s also lifted the poll numbers to even higher legs.”
Trump also touted poll numbers showing him comfortably ahead as the front-runner in the 2024 Republican presidential primary.
The former president further directed his criticism at President Joe Biden, calling him “corrupt.” Earlier in the day, Trump delivered his first public remarks since being indicted, accusing Democrats of a “political hit job” against him and alleging a double standard in the Biden administration’s justice system.
Former President Donald Trump’s legal troubles continue to mount, with the recent federal indictment adding to the ongoing investigations targeting him. Despite the solemnity of the situation, Trump’s defiant attitude and willingness to fight back against his opponents have endeared him to his supporters.
Trump’s speech at the North Carolina Republican Party’s convention highlighted his belief that his political opponents are trying to thwart the will of the American people. He alleged that they engage in election interference and engage in politically motivated investigations. Trump’s claim that he enjoys legal charges and investigations may be jarring to some, but it demonstrates that he will not go quietly into the night and will continue to fight for his political future.
