‘I have no comment on Trump’: Biden REFUSES to answer multiple questions on former president’s indictment
- Biden won’t comment on Trump’s indictment
- “I have no comment on Trump,” he said.
- The White House declined to comment on the former president’s cases
President Joe Biden declined Friday to comment on Donald Trump’s indictment.
“I have no comment on Trump,” he told reporters at the White House as he and Jill Biden headed to Mississippi to tour the damage caused by a deadly tornado.
The president declined to speak about his predecessor despite being questioned several times. He also did not respond to questions about whether he was concerned about the protesters or the violence following the indictment.
The White House has consistently declined to comment on any of Trump’s cases, adopting the strategy of simply remaining silent and on the sidelines as the legal process progresses.
President Joe Biden said he had no comment on Donald Trump’s indictment
A Manhattan grand jury indicted the former president on Thursday on charges related to a silent payment to porn star Stormy Daniels. The exact charges have yet to be revealed, but reports say there are more than 30 counts.
Trump, 76, will be arraigned in Manhattan at 2:15 p.m. Tuesday. He denied any wrongdoing.
He previously called for protests amid reports that an indictment was pending. He warned of “death and destruction” if charged.
The former president also repeatedly attacked the justice system and claimed to be a victim of its militarization – a line of attack that many of his Republican supporters echoed.
He continued that argument after news of his indictment broke, arguing it would backfire on Biden.
“I think this witch hunt will massively backfire on Joe Biden,” he said in a statement late Thursday. “The American people realize exactly what the radical left Democrats are doing here. Everyone can see it.
The former president is leading the polls to be the Republican candidate in next year’s presidential race. A new poll released Thursday showed he was gaining support as GOP voters showed him sympathy.
