Former President Donald Trump is standing his ground and defending himself against what he believes is a politically motivated attack. Trump took to Truth Social, his social media platform, to announce his intention to appear at a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. to argue for presidential immunity in the case involving the alleged subversion of the 2020 election.
The former president made it clear that he firmly believes in his entitlement to immunity as president and commander in chief. He emphasized that his actions were not part of a campaign, but rather an effort to root out voter fraud. In his bold statement, Trump also highlighted the current administration’s failures, including what he referred to as the “Border Invasion” and the “Afghanistan Surrender,” as well as alleged financial dealings involving foreign countries that he believes could make President Joe Biden vulnerable to indictment.

Trump’s legal team has been vigorously arguing that he should be immune from prosecution in this case because of his actions while serving as president. However, U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan rejected this claim, prompting Trump to take his case to the federal appeals court.
The legal battle surrounding Trump’s claim of presidential immunity has now put a halt to the 2020 election case before the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, potentially delaying the scheduled trial date. The former president remains resolute in his fight for what he believes is unjust targeting and unwarranted legal action against him.
