Trump rages about being 'INDICATED' in social media post about his indictment, says 'THE USA IS NOW A THIRD WORLD NATION'

Trump rages about being 'INDICATED' in social media post about his indictment, says 'THE USA IS NOW A THIRD WORLD NATION'

"THE USA IS NOW A THIRD WORLD NATION, A NATION IN SERIOUS DECLINE," Trump wrote after the typo about his indictment. "SO SAD!"
Former President Donald Trump complained on Thursday about being "indicated" in New York, adding in all caps that "THIS IS AN ATTACK ON OUR COUNTRY THE LIKES OF WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE."

Trump made the statement on Truth Social shortly after it surfaced that a New York grand jury had voted to indict him following an investigation by the Manhattan district attorney's office into a $130,000 hush-money payment to the adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to multiple felonies in connection to the payment — made during the 2016 election — including tax evasion, bank fraud, and campaign finance violations. Cohen said that Trump directed him to pay Daniels off in exchange for her silence about an alleged affair with Trump. But Trump and his attorneys have denied the affair and any knowledge of the payment.

"These Thugs and Radical Left Monsters have just INDICATED the 45th President of the United States of America, and the leading Republican Candidate, by far, for the 2024 Nomination for President," Trump wrote on Truth Social.

"THIS IS AN ATTACK ON OUR COUNTRY THE LIKES OF WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN BEFORE," he added. "IT IS LIKEWISE A CONTINUING ATTACK ON OUR ONCE FREE AND FAIR ELECTIONS. THE USA IS NOW A THIRD WORLD NATION, A NATION IN SERIOUS DECLINE. SO SAD!"

In an earlier statement Thursday, Trump claimed that "Radical Left Democrats" had targeted him since he launched his first presidential campaign in 2015.

"The Democrats have lied, cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to 'Get Trump,' but now they've done the unthinkable indicting a completely innocent person in an act of blatant Election Interference," the statement said.

He went on to say that "never before in our Nation's history has this been done" — indeed, Trump is the first former US president to be criminally charged, and his indictment will likely have lasting effects on the Republican primary and 2024 presidential election.
