2024 Republican presidential candidate and former President Donald Trump released a new video Thursday morning through the Trump War Room Twitter/X account, in which he gave a detailed description of the people involved in the indictments against him whom he says surround Democrat opponent, President Joe Biden–and doubled down on a warning to Democrats he issued earlier this week.
That warning came on Tuesday, during an interview with The BlazeTV’s Glenn Beck.
Beck asked Trump about his promise in 2016 to “lock her up,” and how that relates to a potential second term in the White House:
You said in 2016, you know, “lock her up.” And then when you became president, you said, “We don’t do that in America.” That’s just not the right thing to do. That’s what they’re doing. Do you regret not locking her up? And if you’re president again, will you lock people up?
Well, I’ll give you an example. Uh, the answer is you have no choice because they’re doing it to us.[…]
I always had such great respect for the office of the president and the presidency…. And I never hit Biden as hard as I could have. And then I heard he was trying to indict me and it was him that was doing it….
….But then I said, well, they’re actually trying to indict me because every one of these indictments is him, including Bragg. But he put his top people.
I don’t know if you know this, he put his top person into the office of the Manhattan district attorney. They’ve been in total coordination with Fani Willis. The woman that I never met, that they accused me of rape, that’s being run by a Democrat, a Democrat operative, and paid for by the Democrat party.
With that context in mind, here’s some of what he said in the new video:
You have to remember; these are BIDEN INDICTMENTS. It’s his updated form of cheating! pic.twitter.com/cMH5VhjZo5

These crazy indictments against me should be viewed as campaign contributions to Crooked Joe Biden and his radical left thugs….Remember, these are Biden indictments; they’re not pure and simple, they’re not coming down from Heaven. These are indictments made up by Joe Biden and the people that surround him.
He’s got a bad group. They’re thugs. They’re radical left fascists. They’re Marxists. They’re Communists. They have the worst people.
In closing, Trump turned to the “corrupt system” at the heart of the indictments leveled against him, reissuing his warning to Democrats :
We’re going to court to fight a crooked system, a corrupt system, and Democrats better be careful what they wish for — because this kind of thing can happen to them.
