Former President Donald Trump, now a leading Republican figure, addressed his legal challenges during a rally in Waterford Township, Michigan, where he made light of his recent indictment. Trump remarked, “My whole life I didn’t know what the N-word — I didn’t know what indictment meant.” Told to People 

He compared his legal troubles to Alphonse Capone, playfully stating, “[I] got indicted more than Alphonse Capone, Scarface.” Trump emphasized his commitment to the American people, stating, “I’m just doing something for incredible people — it’s called the American people … It doesn’t bother me.”

President Biden’s campaign seized on Trump’s verbal slips and concerns about his age, aiming to divert attention from a critical special counsel report questioning Trump’s mental acuity. Notably, Trump has previously suggested that the “N-word” referred to the word “nuclear,” not the offensive racial term. Accusations from Trump critic Omarosa Manigault Newman claiming the existence of tapes of Trump using the forbidden slur have not been substantiated.

The rally remarks followed a significant legal setback for Trump, with Justice Arthur Engoron in New York imposing a hefty penalty of $355 million plus interest, potentially totaling $450 million. The penalty was linked to allegations of manipulating asset valuations. Trump dismissed the judgment, criticizing the judge and characterizing the penalty as “bitterness and revenge.”

He claimed victimhood, decrying “repulsive abuses of power” and referring to Justice Engoron as “one of the least respected” judges in New York state. Despite the legal challenges, Trump expressed contentment with his decision to run for and serve as president, stating, “I knew I would lose a billion or $2 billion if I was honest running for president and being president. It was the best thing I ever did.”
