During a speech at a rally in New Hampshire, former President Donald Trump complained that he wasn’t able to visit supporters in Iowa or New Hampshire because he’s tied up in court cases — a point he got across while using some colorful language.
“How can my corrupt political opponent, crooked Joe Biden, put me on trial during an election campaign that I’m winning by a lot, but forcing me nevertheless to spend time and money away from the campaign trail in order to fight bogus, made up accusations and charges? That’s what they’re doing,” Trump said in a video flagged by Mediaite.
“I’m sorry, I won’t be able to go to Iowa today, I won’t be able to go to New Hampshire today, because I’m sitting in a courtroom on bullsh**, because his attorney general charged me with something,” Trump said.
The audience then erupted into chants of “Bullsh**!”
On Thursday, Trump pleaded not guilty to four criminal charges related to his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election, including conspiring to defraud the United States and to obstruct an official proceeding.
