Hours after New York prosecutors looking into his hush-money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels said they would not be intimidated, former US President Donald Trump warned of possible “death and destruction” if he faces criminal charges.
Since last Saturday, when Trump incorrectly predicted Alvin Bragg would be arrested three days later, he has been the target of a series of verbal insults on Trump’s Truth Social media platform.
In an attempt to prevent Congress from certifying the election of Democratic President Joe Biden, who defeated the Republican Trump by more than 7 million votes, Trump’s supporters launched a deadly attack on the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. Trump falsely claims that his defeat in 2020 was the result of fraud.
Trump wrote, “What kind of person can charge another person, in this case a former President of the United States, who got more votes than any sitting President in history, and leading candidate (by far!) for the Republican Party nomination, with a Crime, when it is known by all that NO Crime has been committed, & also known that potential death & destruction in such a false charge could be catastrophic for our Country?.”
