Donald Trump – Notwithstanding the criminal probes started against him, Donald Trump is proceeding with his presidential bid.
The ruling might put the United States in a political and legal dilemma.
Donald Trump hosted his first official 2024 campaign event on Saturday.
During a rally in Waco, Texas, the former president raged against “prosecutorial misconduct.”
Trump has maintained his innocence during many investigations in New York, Georgia, and Washington.
Despite the lack of proof, Donald Trump claimed the investigations were politically driven attempts to sabotage his presidential bid in 2024 over the Waco rally.
“Prosecutorial misconduct is their new tool, and they’re willing to use it at levels never seen before in our country,” said Trump.
“We’ve had it, but we’ve never had it like this.”
“We must stop them and we must not allow them to go through another election where they have yet another tool in their tool kit.”
On signs raised by supporters, the words “Witch hunt” were printed.
“Our opponents have done everything they can to crush our spirit and break our will,” he said.
“But they’ve failed. They’ve only made us stronger.”
The Waco Regional Airport ceremony was reminiscent of Trump’s 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns, which lay the groundwork for his 2024 goal.
Donald Trump’s event was held in Waco, Texas, 30 years after federal and state police assaulted the headquarters of the Branch Davidian doomsday cult in Waco.
86 individuals were killed during a 51-day siege.
For the extremist right, it has since become a symbol of government overreach.
At the event, Trump made no mention of the siege, but a spokeswoman claimed Waco was chosen due to its centralized location, allowing it to get to many Texan population centers.
“This is the ideal location to have as many supporters from across the state and in neighboring states to attend this historic rally,” said Steven Cheung, a spokesperson for Donald Trump.
The return of Donald Trump to his favorite event raises many questions.
The court is investigating a hush money payment for a ten-year-old dispute in New York.
Similarly, Georgia is investigating his attempts to invalidate the 2020 presidential election.
Apart from Trump’s efforts to steal the 2020 presidential election, Justice Department special counsel Jack Smith is looking into concealed records discovered at his Mar-a-Lago home.
Eventually, the former president is being probed for his role in the insurgency that began on January 6, 2021.

The hush money & documents
Alvin Bragg, a Manhattan District Attorney probing Trump’s alleged participation in the Stormy Daniels hush money case, feels the investigation is reaching its conclusion.
Yet, Donald Trump predicted his arrest on the social media network Truth Social, warning that it may lead to death and destruction, which would be bad for the United States.
His former lawyer, Michael Cohen, acknowledged paying a woman $130,000 to keep the affair disguised before the 2016 election.
Trump has often denied the affair, and he reiterated his denial on Saturday night, making disparaging statements about Daniels.
Donald Trump’s defense attorney, Evan Corcoran, went before a federal grand jury in Washington on Friday.
He was supposed to offer answers on the sensitive materials investigation, which Trump failed to conceal.
As part of the criminal investigation into plots to rig the 2020 presidential election, a federal judge ordered six of Trump’s associates to appear before a grand jury.
Ron DeSantis & other leaders
Donald Trump chastised Florida Governor Ron DeSantis during his address in Waco.
DeSantis appears to be exploring a presidential bid, and early surveys suggest he may be a dangerous opponent.
Trump claimed credit for Desantis’ win in the 2018 Florida governor’s race.
Despite a worse-than-expected GOP national showing, DeSantis was comfortably re-elected in 2022.
Trump said that previous Republican governors had kept Florida affluent for decades and that he deserved little credit for it.
Additionally, he stated that DeSantis was particularly forceful in terms of public safety measures during the early stages of the outbreak.
Republic executives in South Carolina, South Dakota, and Tennessee fared better, according to the former president.
“I’m not a big fan,” Trump said about DeSantis.
“He’s a disciple of Paul Ryan. That’s why he wanted to cut Social Security and Medicare.”
Donald Trump congratulated Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping for their meeting in Moscow during the occasion.
He portrayed them as “intelligent people” debating the next century’s world order, calling it “one of the saddest things you can imagine.”
“I get along with Putin,” said Trump, revealing he regularly talked about Ukraine.
“He wanted a piece. Now, it looks like he’ll probably end up getting the whole thing.”
