Former President Donald Trump posted a word cloud to his Truth Social account Tuesday featuring words such as “revenge” and “dictatorship,” the result of a Daily Mail poll that asked potential voters what word they would use to describe what he expects from a second. term.
The poll, carried out by the firm JL Partners and published Tuesday by the Daily Mail, asked 1,000 potential voters to say one word to summarize the plans of Presidents Joe Biden and Trump for new terms. According to the poll, the most popular word related to what Biden planned to achieve was “nothing.”
Trump cryptically posted the word cloud to his Truth Social account Tuesday afternoon, without comment or context. The word “revenge” in purple letters sits in the center of the word cloud, with “power” above and “dictatorship” below printed in orange.
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to NBC News’ request for comment.
The former president shared the word cloud weeks after telling Fox News host Sean Hannity during a town hall that he would not be a dictator “except on day one.”
Trump doubled down on his comment moments later in the broadcast, pointing out the “first day” exception.
“I love this guy,” Trump said, referring to Hannity. “He says, ‘You’re not going to be a dictator, are you?’ I said, ‘No, no, no. Except the first day. We close the border and we drill, drill, drill. Afterwards, I am not a dictator.
On the same day as Trump’s Fox News comment, his ally, Kash Patel, who was a National Security Council and Defense Department official during the Trump administration, said on the former senior aide’s podcast of Trump, Steve Bannon, that Trump would “go after” the “conspirators”. » in the media and the government who “helped Joe Biden rig the presidential elections”, if he is elected in 2024.
“We’re going to come after you.” Whether it’s criminal or civil, we’ll find out,” Patel said on the podcast.
Trump faces four criminal cases, including cases at the federal level and in Georgia alleging election subversion due to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. Another case in New York accused Trump of falsifying business records in connection with discreet money payments to a porn star. In Florida, the former president faces criminal charges related to his possession of classified documents after leaving the Oval Office. Trump has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him and claims no wrongdoing in the cases.
He also asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to dismiss the federal election interference case, arguing that he has “presidential immunity” from prosecution.
Trump has repeatedly called the cases against him part of a political witch hunt orchestrated by Democrats and his political opponents and continues to make baseless and evidence-free claims that the 2020 election was stolen.
Despite Trump’s legal troubles, the Daily Mail poll echoed other recent polls in showing him leading Biden in a head-to-head matchup, with 46% against Trump and 43% against Biden – a result that falls within the margin survey error of 3.1. percentage points.
