This Christmas, former President Donald Trump’s postings on Truth Social were a blend of defiance and optimism. The 77-year-old ex-president expressed grievances against the Biden administration and forecasted what he described as “illegal election interference” in 2024.
In a morning post, Trump characterized the upcoming year as one marked by orchestrated and unlawful election interference led by “Crooked Joe Biden” and various law enforcement agencies. However, he concluded his message with an upbeat note, anticipating a triumphant outcome for what he calls “brave and valiant patriots” dedicated to his MAGA vision.
Trump’s insistence on the 2020 election being unfairly taken from him has been a recurrent theme, often leading him to legal complexities. Current polls suggest a tight race between him and President Biden for the 2024 national popular vote, with both appearing as likely candidates for their respective parties.
Later, Trump discussed the challenge of celebrating Christmas amid ongoing legal battles, facing 91 criminal charges in four different cases. He expressed frustration over what he perceives as the Biden administration’s unlawful efforts to imprison him, framing it as a broader fight for the country’s future.
Despite these allegations, Trump has consistently denied any misconduct and has pleaded not guilty in all cases.
Contrasting with her husband’s tone, Melania Trump shared a straightforward and festive “Merry Christmas” greeting on her social media, accompanied by a seasonal graphic.
Trump’s history of issuing holiday messages mixed with political remarks continued this year. On Christmas Eve, he aired grievances about a range of issues, from the 2020 election to immigration policies, while extending Christmas wishes. He accused the Biden administration and others of unprecedented persecution against him, labeling these actions as “election interference.”
However, in a video released on Sunday, Trump embraced a more traditional holiday sentiment, reflecting on the significance of Christmas and expressing gratitude for blessings received. He acknowledged the sacrifices of military personnel and conveyed optimism for a safer, stronger, and more prosperous America in 2024.
Ending on a hopeful note, Trump wished his followers a blessed holiday season and a promising new year.
