Echoing familiar sentiments, former President Donald Trump commented that the legal challenges against him are driven by Democrats’ intent to prevent his return to the presidency.

“Had I been a less significant contender or not in the race at all, I would be living without these issues. I wouldn’t be addressing you tonight; instead, I’d be enjoying my properties worldwide,” Trump remarked at the South Dakota GOP convention, an event broadcasted fully on Newsmax.

“They wouldn’t be targeting me if I wasn’t a frontrunner. The legal challenges arise because I am leading.”

Trump suggested that his prominent position in Republican primary polls, and even hypothetical matchups against President Joe Biden, might have made him a target. He insinuated that the Democrats could be leveraging the legal system to undermine their primary political adversary.

“Every time there’s a favorable poll, there’s talk of more legal challenges,” Trump expressed. “Perhaps I should say, ‘Things are looking bleak; maybe I should step back.'”

He further argued that there’s a larger strategy at play, targeting those connected to him.

“They aim to influence electoral outcomes, making it challenging for Republicans and right-leaning individuals to succeed,” he articulated.

Trump called on Republicans in Congress to adopt a firmer stance, especially in contrast to what he perceives as the laxity of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“While the House has shown dedication, under McConnell, the Senate has been lackluster,” he stated.

He further suggested, “There should be a push to cut funding for the DOJ and prosecutors who, according to him, are attempting to sideline conservatives and Republicans from political contention via indictments and dubious methods.

“That’s their strategy,” he concluded.
