Former President Donald Trump has fired back at President Joe Biden, accusing him of weaponizing federal agencies in an attempt to stop his presidential campaign. In an interview with Univision, Trump criticized Biden for what he sees as a political persecution against him. Trump claims that the Biden administration has weaponized the Justice Department and the FBI, resulting in some of the worst indictments he has ever seen.

But Trump didn’t stop there. When asked if he would do the same to his opponents if he were reelected, Trump admitted that he would consider it. He believes that if his opponents are doing well and beating him badly, he would want to indict them to eliminate them from the election. According to Trump, this is the consequence of the Biden administration “releasing the genie out of the box.”
Trump is currently facing four separate criminal cases, including charges of business fraud, mishandling classified documents, and attempting to overturn the 2020 election. He is the first president in history to be charged with criminal activity and indicted. Trump seems to believe that this is a dangerous precedent set by Biden, as it opens the door for future presidents to be treated the same way.
It is clear that Trump is not letting go of his grievances against the Biden administration. He is determined to fight back and use any means necessary to protect himself and his allies. This interview only reinforces Trump’s belief that he is the victim of a political hoax and that he is being unfairly targeted by the current administration.
