Trump accuses Biden of waging unprecedented 'political repression' that will backfire in election

Former President Donald Trump leveled a blistering attack Saturday night against the man who succeeded him in the White House, telling a rally in Ohio that Joe Biden's Justice Department was waging unprecedented "political repression" against MAGA supporters while his inflationary economic policies were "incinerating trillions of dollars of middle-class wealth."

"Our country is being ripped apart, and the American dream is being torn to shreds," Trump told thousands of cheering fans who attended the rally in blue-collar Youngstown, Ohio, to support GOP candidates like Senate nominee J.D. Vance. "Sad, sad, sad what's happening."

Trump mixed a withering assessment of Biden inflation with his most direct denunciation yet of a Justice Department and FBI that has raided his Mar-a-Lago estate as well as seized phones and evidence from scores of his supporters in connection with a probe into the Jan. 6 riots. He called the investigations "unhinged persecution."

"What they've done, the radical Democrats and the deep state, is a form of political repression unlike anything our nation has ever seen. It's a disgrace," he said, alleging some of his supporters have been threatened with up to 10 years in prison unless they provide evidence to help indict the former president.

"For six straight years I’ve been harassed, investigated, defamed, slandered, and persecuted like no other president, and probably like no one, in American history," he added. "Yet all I have ever wanted and all we’ve ever fought for is to simply, very simply, Make America Great Again.
