During an interview with The Blaze founder Glenn Beck, former President Donald Trump vowed to pursue prosecutions of President Joe Biden and other corrupt Democrats if he returns to the White House.
Trump has faced what many have deemed “political prosecutions” and “election interference” from Biden’s Department of Justice and Democrat district attorneys in Manhattan and Fulton County, Georgia. Many of these outrageous charges against the former president could be easily applied to Biden and other Democrats — including two-time failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Beck questioned Trump during the interview about his 2016 campaign and the chants of “lock her up” against Clinton over her email scandal — asking the Republican candidate how he plans to handle prosecutions against political opponents if he were to win the 2024 presidential election.
“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,” Beck said. “That’s what they’re doing. Do you regret not locking her up? And if you’re president again, will you lock people up?”
Trump responded in the affirmative, pointing out that the Democrats are already doing it to Republicans, including himself — and thus, he has to fight back with equal force.
“The answer is, you’ll have no choice because they’re doing it to us,” Trump said.
“I always had such great respect for the office of the president… I never hit Biden as hard as I could have,” he added. “And then I heard that he was trying to indict me. And it was him that was doing it, you know. I don’t think he’s sharp enough to think about much, but he was there. He was probably the one giving the order.”
“These are sick people. These are evil people,” Trump continued.

During the 2016 election cycle, Trump repeatedly vowed to investigate Clinton — who illegally stored tens of thousands of government emails on a private server, then had her aides destroy the evidence, including smashing cellphones with hammers.
“And I’ll tell you what. I didn’t think I’d say this, but I’m going to say it, and I hate to say it,” Trump told Clinton during a debate. “But if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there has never been so many lies, so much deception.”
After winning the presidential election, Trump backed off on that promise — prompting criticism from many of his supporters. However, now that the Democrats are targeting him in numerous jurisdictions, he appears ready to follow through on that promise if he is reelected.
