The jailed US ex-President Trump is unrepentant and seeks the crown
The English was somewhat abbreviated and edited for clarity.
Mr. Trump! Your hero, President Nixon was never even prosecuted. You have trial after trial and are expected to sit in jail from now on, 2024, possibly for the rest of your life. How do you explain this?
Very simple. Nixon had done great things but not created a movement of loyal supporters. I did. Now, many people are afraid to voice their loyalty to me, but as soon as I get out of here, you’ll see that the American People stands behind me as never before behind anyone. When Nixon was done, he was done. I’m not done. So, they pursue me with stupid baseless court cases.
But, you get convicted, trial after trial. How can you describe that as baseless court cases?
These are all show trials. Dirty cops bring me in, Left-wing AGs accuse me, scared jurors call me guilty, corrupt judges convict me. I don’t attack the jurors. They are innocent victims like me. They all know that I’m innocent. They’re getting me on technicalities. In the end, I will win on substance.
How do you explain that there is so much fear for you and your followers?
I wanted to change the system. I wanted to prioritize the American People.
But, your tax benefits went mostly to the super-rich. You did not oppose the pharmaceutical industry, as you had promised. You enlarged military spending. You huddled with dictators and opposed democratic countries like in Europe. You did everything for the few and nothing for the many.
If you’re right, why do the People support me? Why did they elect me twice to be president? Why do I sit in jail innocently? Because they want me to be their king. Not a king for my own glory. For the People.
How can a Republican say a thing like that?
Because the Republican Party was always against kings who wanted glory and money for themselves. I lost money being president. It’s bad for business. But I did it out of love for the People.
The newest tax revelations show that you were—again—on the brink of bankruptcy when you became president. You had nothing to lose.
That depends on how you do the calculations. I could have made a lot of money had I not run for president. I did it from the goodness of my heart. And my followers feel that. That’s why they love me too.
But, you violated laws that have nothing to do with being good for the USA and everything with enriching and empowering yourself.
Take the case of the top-secret documents that I took home. Did I hurt anyone doing so? Did I make any money with it? No. I did it all to prevent the election stealers from doing it again. That’s what’s bothering them. Washington never got anything done. I did. That bothered them. It shook up their comfortable status quo. That’s why I had to go. But, I’ll be back.
Some say that you’re delusional.
Yes, like this bunch of ultra-left-wing crazy psychiatrists and psychologists who diagnosed me without ever talking to me. It’s against their ethical code. Were their licenses revoked? No. I’m crazy? Look who’s taking.
They said you were dangerous because you polarized the country.
No, the country was already polarized. I returned to the People its voice, to the forgotten half of the country. Did I polarize? Ask the Arab countries in the Middle East that I brought together with Israel against dangerous Iran. I bring peace, not danger.
They say the Middle East Peace Plan was your son-in-law’s, not yours.
He worked for me. He followed my orders. I paid his salary. He deserves some credit, but so do I. I was visionary enough to appoint and support him. Everyone knows that it was my success. Every Israeli knows that.
You are personally blamed for your rash withdrawal of US troupes from Syria, endangering and betraying the Kurds and indirectly Israel.
You conveniently forget that I had Iran’s top terrorist killed. Iran is also the leader in State-sponsored terrorism around the world.
They say that was a symbolic, worthless action that changed nothing. And, you are widely believed to have diminished deterrence toward China, North Korea, and Russia.
That’s what you say. I say Russia and China only became more aggressive after I was removed from the US presidency. And look what Biden did in Afghanistan.
They say that you encouraged racism and Antisemitism in the US. That you emboldened supremacists.
I have condemned extremism and hatred time and again. But the corrupt media don’t transmit that. I am against hatred, but the extremists are sometimes right too. Not all that they say is wrong. They are put in a bad light because they support me.
Even Hitler did good things. That doesn’t whitewash all the rest.
How dare you suggest that most of the US electorate that stands behind me are Nazis? You simply show yourself the enemy of the People.
We don’t claim that they are Neo-Nazis. They are mostly innocent, decent people whom you deceive.
Oh, now they are stupid? They’ve been called stupid all their lives. They are the smartest people around. They know everything. The political top, the know-it-alls, the Washington swamp, they know nothing.
You can’t call people stupid just because they have no experience with flattering salesmen and con artists like you.
I don’t call them stupid; you did. I’m their hero, and they are my heroes. I don’t know what you will cut out or twist around what I told you. But, it doesn’t matter. My supporters will be happy to hear from me.
Thank you for this interview.
Well, its ratings might finally save your fledgling enterprise. Without me, you would have gone bankrupt years ago. Good luck. When I get out, let’s see how many of you are still around. No US president had so much airtime and so many books issued about him. It’s an undeniable fact.
So far, Mr. Trump is not expected to be let out of his special high-security facility at least until 2044 when he will be 98 years old.
