Trump made the comments on August 3, 2023, after his arraignment in federal court in Washington, D.C. He pleaded not guilty to four charges: conspiracy to defraud the United States, obstruction of an official proceeding, conspiracy against rights, and racketeering conspiracy.

The charges against Trump stem from his role in the January 6th attack on the U.S. Capitol. He is accused of inciting the attack by telling his supporters to "fight like hell" to overturn the election results.

Trump's comments were met with mixed reactions. Some people agreed with him that the charges were politically motivated, while others said that he was simply trying to deflect from the seriousness of the charges.

"This is a very sad day for our country," Trump said. "This is a persecution of a political opponent in a rigged system. This is a witch hunt, and it's a disgrace."

"I'm not guilty of these charges, and I never will be," he continued. "But now I'm going to fight like hell to clear my name, and I'm going to restore the greatness of America."

Trump's comments have undoubtedly made the political landscape in the United States even more divisive. It remains to be seen whether his case will have a positive or negative impact on the country.
