(FeaturedNews.com) – After being indicted for the second time on Thursday, former President Donald Trump assured his supporters that he would not withdraw from the 2024 presidential race and continued to raise funds for his campaign. In a fundraising email, he maintained his innocence, stating that although he could be indicted and arrested, the American people were aware of his innocence. He claimed that his only wrongdoing was “challenging the corrupt ruling class” and advocating for the forgotten American citizens.
Trump also made an allegation that a reporter had asked him if the Department of Justice would drop the charges against him if he decided not to run in the 2024 election. Trump described this as an act of “extortion” and argued that withdrawing from the race would establish an unfavorable precedent, suggesting that the selection of the U.S. President would be determined through coercion rather than through a legitimate electoral process.
The email further contended that the upcoming presidential election would have far-reaching consequences for future elections, potentially determining whether the president would be chosen by unelected bureaucrats using a weaponized legal system. Ultimately, the fundraising email urged all of Trump’s supporters to vote and demonstrate their unwavering support for his campaign, emphasizing the importance of persevering in the mission to secure the White House.
Trump commenced his fundraising efforts shortly after news broke of his federal indictment. Earlier in the week, he pleaded not guilty to all 37 federal charges related to the alleged mishandling of classified documents subsequent to his departure from the White House in 2021.
