OUR NATION IS NOW THIRD WORLD AND DYING. THE AMERICAN DREAM IS DEAD! RADICAL LEFT ANARCHISTS STOLE OUR PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, AND WITH IT, THE HEART OF OUR COUNTRY. AMERICAN PATRIOTS ARE ARRESTED AND HELD IN CAPTIVITY LIKE ANIMALS, WHILE CRIMINALS AND LEFT-WING TRAVELERS ARE ALLOWED TO WALK THE STREETS, KILLING AND BURNING WITHOUT RETRIBUTION. MILLIONS ARE FLOODED THROUGH OUR OPEN RESIDENTS, MANY PRISONS AND MENTAL INSTITUTIONS. CRIME AND INFLATION DESTROY OUR WAY OF LIFE…
Page 2: NOW ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM A CORRUPTED AND HIGHLY POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT LAW OFFICE, WHICH HELPED SET NEW VIOLENT CRIME RECORDS AND WHOSE HEAD IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT, NO A CRIME CANNOT BE PROVEN, AND BASED ON AN OLD AND FULLY DEbunked (BY MANY OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRY TALE, THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE AND FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, TAKE BACK OUR NATION!
A Trump spokesperson clarified that there had been “no notification, other than unlawful leaks from the Justice Department and the prosecutor’s office, to NBC and other bogus media, that the Democratic prosecutor radical leftist funded by George Soros in Manhattan has decided to take its witch hunt to the next level.
“President Trump rightly points out his innocence and the weaponization of our system of injustice. He will be in Texas next weekend for a giant rally. Make America Great Again!” the spokesperson added.
However, the rumor mill has conservatives at all levels rallying behind Trump and speaking out against the politicization of the justice system:
We can’t reward the tyrants on the left, who arm the government to stop their political enemies, by putting anyone but Trump in the White House in 2024. What’s happening is bullshit the 3rd World Banana Republic and the Republicans must resist it.
Fight fire with fire.

Several journalists have asked me if an indictment would lead me to cancel my support for Donald Trump. The answer is: hell no. A politically motivated lawsuit strengthens the case for Trump. We simply don’t have a real country if justice depends on politics.

The arrest of the leader of the opposition party is the signature of socialist and despotic regimes in the Third World. Moreover, it is always done in the name of the “fight against corruption” and the “rule of law”. #TrumpIndictment

An indictment of Trump would be a national disaster. It is not American for the ruling party to use the power of the police to arrest political rivals. If a Republican prosecutor in 2004 used a campaign finance technique to arrest then-candidate John Kerry when Bush and Cheney were… https://t.co/vRIDRLRuha

Alvin Bragg could very well be America’s most dangerous, divisive, incompetent, and compromised district attorney. On the FIRST day, my FIRST action as Governor would have been to tell Bragg he was fired.
