Former President Donald Trump has retaliated against the Biden administration, indicating that, if reelected, he would employ government resources to investigate his political rivals, mirroring what he perceives as the tactics of the Biden Justice Department. Speaking with Univision, Trump remarked, "What they’ve done is they’ve released the genie out of the box. You understand that, they’ve done something that nobody thought would happen."
Trump conveyed his belief that the indictments against him were strategically orchestrated by the Biden administration to secure an election victory, accusing them of "weaponizing" the Department of Justice and the FBI to undermine his electoral prospects.

Facing four separate indictments at both the federal and state levels throughout the year, Trump is charged with offenses ranging from mishandling classified documents in Florida to attempts to overturn election results in Washington. Additionally, he faces charges in New York related to hush money payments and in Georgia for efforts to overturn the state’s 2020 election results. Trump has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Surprisingly, Trump contends that rather than diminishing his popularity, these indictments have enhanced his support, pointing to a surge in his poll numbers. Recent polls indeed show Trump leading other Republican candidates by substantial margins and even outperforming President Biden in battleground states.
Evidently unyielding in the face of ongoing legal challenges, Trump is adopting a confrontational approach, confidently asserting that these legal battles have bolstered his standing. Whether these statements will materialize into action or remain political rhetoric remains uncertain, and only time will reveal the outcome.
