President Trump Response to Arraignment

April 4, 2023

The only crime that I’ve committed has been to fearlessly defend our nation against those who seek to destroy it.

Fmr. President Trump speaking during an evening event after his arraignment on 34 criminal charges in New York.

Why It Matters: In a wide-ranging speech, Pres. Trump refuted multiple investigations against him, and accused the Manhattan D.A. (and others) of abusing the U.S. legal system for political gain.

President Trump discussed several investigations against him, calling out prosecutors by name.

He also listed what he perceived as his achievements as the 45th President and criticized the Biden Administration for policy weakness as well as mishandling classified records.
