Trump offers confusing response to latest indictment

Posted 6 August 2023 at 7:40 am


In response to his multiple criminal indictments, Trump stated publicly on August 4,  “If you go after me, I am coming after you.”

Is this a message to his followers to resort to violence? Could it be the comment of person looking at serious jail time for his crimes? Or a childish response to legal matters now beyond his control.

This is all very confusing. I ask the Orleans County Republican Party Chairman Skip Draper to clarify this situation and explain Trump’s comment. I look forward to Mr. Draper’s explanation.
