Donald Trump Compares Himself To Nelson Mandela | General News

Donald Trump compared himself to Nelson Mandela and insisted he wasn’t afraid of being thrown in prison as he cast himself as a victim of state persecution during a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Monday night.

The former U.S. president also said he dreams about punching Joe Biden in the face, and vowed to build an Israeli-style Iron Dome missile defense shield over the U.S.

Mandela spent 27 years behind bars for opposing decades of apartheid rule in South Africa. When finally released went on to lead the nation into a new era as president.

Trump, 77, the Republican presidential frontrunner for 2024, spoke to supporters in the Granite State for 100 minutes, and said 91 criminal charges he is facing were part of a ‘fascist’ witch hunt led by Biden’s White House.

‘If you want to challenge the result of an election, they hound you,’ he said after filing to be on the state’s GOP primary ballot.

‘But we don’t get scared — we don’t get scared. I’ll tell you what, I don’t mind being Nelson Mandela, because I’m doing it for a reason.

‘We’ve got to save our country from these fascists, these lunatics that we’re dealing with. They’re horrible people and they’re destroying our country.’

Trump is facing four criminal indictments as well as civil trials that include allegations he inflated his worth, misclassified hush money payments to women during his 2016 campaign, illegally tried to overturn his 2020 election loss, and hoarded classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida.

Mandela was released from prison in 1990.

Three years later he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for is role in the ‘peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa.’ 

In his free-wheeling Trump also recalled how Biden once said he would take him ‘behind the gym and beat the hell out of him’ if they were both in high school.

‘I dream of that. You know what I’d do with him?’ Trump asked the crowd as he threw a couple light punches in the air while making sound effects.

‘I’d hit him right in that fake nose. He’d have plastic lying all over the floor.’ 

Trump continually honed in on the 80-year-old commander-in-chief’s series of stumbling incidents, and the fact that he has been using a shorter staircase than usual to board and deplane the storied Air Force One. 

‘Crooked Joe can’t even walk up the children’s stairs,’ Trump said to laughs, citing how Biden has avoided climbing up the sometimes-wobbly – usually 18-foot – set of steps trucked over to the plane’s door. 

The comments came hours after Trump visited the New Hampshire statehouse in Concord to register his name on the 2024 Republican ballot, and after stars like 50 Cent slammed the president for taking a beach vacation while the war in Israel rages.

A few hours later, First Lady Jill, when asked, insisted at a high-brow fundraiser at the home of Anna Wintour that there was no one she’d rather have in the White House Situation Room than her husband Joe.

Back in New Hampshire, Trump took notice of the renewed scrutiny on his rival, using his time in front of the crowd to repeatedly reference the time multiple times he has stumbled on the tall stairs trucked over to the plane’s upper door.

He started by saying that prospective voters would likely want a leader who is able walk off Air Force One ‘nice and high’, while being able to ‘wave at everyone’ without fear of falling.

Citing the much shorter, sturdier set of stairs that fold out from the belly of the plane being used by Biden after his widely seen spills, he tore into his prospective opponent:  ‘This guys goes to the little stairs. We call them the children’s stairs. 

‘And now he’s made it a common practice because he can’t quite make it up or down,’ Trump said. 

‘He has a bigger time making it up. Usually that’s easier.’

Earlier Monday on Truth Social, Trump had shared an Instagram post from the rapper 50 Cent who had posted a DailyMail.com story previewing the Bidens Delaware trip with the commentary, ‘hey Joe, get the fvck[sic] up, we in trouble man.’ 

As the story was written in advance of the Rehoboth trip, the photo used was one from August, which depicted the president asleep on the beach alongside the first lady reading a book.
