Trump describes Fulton County Jail booking as 'terrible'

 August 26, 2023

Former President Donald Trump was booked at the Fulton County Jail last week. He even had his first mugshot taken and publicly released, which has proven a powerful rallying cry for his large base of support.

According to Breitbart, during a recent Newsmax TV interview, the former president recounted his experience being booked at the jail, calling it "terrible."

Trump stood by his longstanding claim that the Georgia indictment, initiated by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, was nothing less than "election interference."

"It was a terrible experience. I came in, I was treated very nicely, but it is what it is. I took a mug shot, which I never heard the words mug shot. They didn’t teach me that at the Wharton School of Finance," he told Greg Kelly of Greg Kelly Reports.

Trump added: "I have to go through a process. It is election interference. You know that better than anybody you covered so well. You do a fantastic job. I have to tell you, Greg."

The 45th president also added that he believes President Joe Biden's Justice Department has been politically weaponized as a tool to hamstring his 2024 presidential campaign, draining his war chest and time that now has to be devoted to fighting multiple legal battles.

He also touched on his handful of civil legal cases, including the case involving writer E. Jean Carroll.

"But it’s a very sad experience, and it’s a very sad day for our country. This is a weaponized Justice Department and all of these indictments and cases. I have a couple of cases, not indictments, just cases where you have these left lawyers suing like a woman that I never saw it before other than that she took a picture 25 years ago on a on a line, on a contributor’s line or something or charity line."

Trump admitted that he believes the DOJ and state prosecutors are trying to run him ragged, as he's easily President Biden's greatest threat to the White House in 2024.

The president insisted that they can keep trying, but it's not going to work out well for them.

"It’s just like one thing after the next, and what they want to do is they want to try and wear you out, which they will never do," Trump said.

Between four indictments -- two federal and two state -- Trump faces 91 charges of varying degrees. Many former officials and members of his inner circle have also been indicted, including former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and former personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Even so, Trump continues to hold dominating positions in virtually all national and state polling, and increasingly beats Biden in hypothetical head-to-head matchups in the 2024 general election.

Only time will tell if they pile on enough legal horse manure to slow him down, but so far, Trump marches on.
