Trump Releases Video Message After Being Hit With Second Indictment

  • Former President Donald Trump released a video message Thursday night after news broke that a federal grand jury has indicted him on multiple criminal charges related to his handling of classified records after leaving office.
  • The former president referred to the case as the “boxes hoax,” focusing on past examples of when opponents and investigators came after him and failed to take him down.
  • “Very sadly we’re a nation in decline,” he said. “And yet, they go after a popular president, a president that got more votes than any sitting president in the history of our country, by far, and did much better the second time in the election than the first.”
