Donald Trump has now been criminally charged by Special Counsel Jack Smith over his pushes following the last presidential election to remain in power despite his documented loss to Joe Biden. It’s his third criminal case and second from Smith — and his fourth indictment overall, counting a superseding indictment in the case that Smith already brought over Donald’s handling of classified documents from his time in office.

Characteristically, Trump took to the internet, which now means his personal profile on Truth Social. Trump’s team created that platform following his removal from mainstream social media sites.

“THANK YOU TO EVERYONE!!!” he posted early on Wednesday. “I HAVE NEVER HAD SO MUCH SUPPORT ON ANYTHING BEFORE. THIS UNPRECEDENTED INDICTMENT OF A FORMER (HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL!) PRESIDENT, & THE LEADING CANDIDATE, BY FAR, IN BOTH THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND THE 2024 GENERAL ELECTION, HAS AWOKEN THE WORLD TO THE CORRUPTION, SCANDAL, & FAILURE THAT HAS TAKEN PLACE IN THE UNITED STATES FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS. AMERICA IS A NATION IN DECLINE, BUT WE WILL MAKE IT GREAT AGAIN, GREATER THAN EVER BEFORE. I LOVE YOU ALL!!!”

Polls measuring prospective voters’ opinions on the expected rematch in 2024 between Trump and Biden show the two leading contenders relatively close in a fashion similar to the numbers from before the 2020 election. Trump’s consistent claims of the U.S. suffering some kind of systematic decline have been sweeping, though from his continued insistence that systematic fraud was seen in the 2020 presidential race to the claims from Republicans that the southern border is “open,” the evidence is generally understood to be lacking. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) even introduced a proposal to impeach President Joe Biden that includes claims that foreign criminal organizations have taken operational control of the southern border. Though Republicans have put Boebert’s proposal under further consideration, that claim on the border is not factual.
