His controversial rhetoric causes criticism.

Washington - Confused statements and comparisons from Donald Trump have already been the order of the day in the past, and in the election campaign for the 2024 US election, the former US President repeatedly attracts attention with sometimes even strange statements.

Sometimes, as in the case after Navalny's death, the 77-year-old makes statements that could spark social debates.

Aside from the headlines about the primaries in the USA, Trump is in the public eye for various legal offenses.

The Republican has always sensed a political campaign against him - and compares himself to the black community in the United States.

Donald Trump's record in the US Republican primaries for the 2024 US election is entirely positive: With the exception of Nikki Haley, his party rivals have already dropped out of the race and the signs are good that Trump will run against Joe Biden in the November 2024 election becomes.

Despite his sometimes controversial views, the former US president enjoys a high reputation among large parts of the American population.

Trump himself bases his success on being close to the people.

He also knows how to use his court cases to his advantage.

Now Trump claimed that black people like him because he faced discrimination in the legal system, which they can identify with.

“I’m being discriminated against,” Trump said, according to

NBC News

“I was accused a second time, a third time and a fourth time, and a lot of people said that because black people were so badly hurt and discriminated against, they like me and they see themselves in me,” he said in another interview Trump previously turned the US election campaign into a holy war.

Speech to Black Conservatives: Trump sees himself as a victim of justice in the midst of the US election

I am charged for you, the Black people.

I'm accused of many different groups of sick people, these are sick, sick people." Meanwhile, Fox News also wants to mobilize black Americans for Trump.

The fact that Donald Trump wants to use his legal problems for his own advantage is now almost part of everyday life in the USA.

But the truth is also: The allegations against Trump range from fraud to conspiracy against the United States - and the Republican was found guilty in several cases and sentenced to high fines.

Confused Trump comparison: Ex-president sees himself discriminated against - just like the black population

While Trump belongs to a privileged population group because of his skin color, police or legal violence against black people is a structural problem in the USA.

Last but not least, the Floyd case has brought police violence against African Americans into the public eye.

The Neue Zürcher Zeitung,

among others

, revealed at the time that blacks received longer prison sentences for the same crimes compared to other population groups.

They are also more likely to be imprisoned.

Deutsche

Criticism of Trump over statements made during US election appearance: Ex-president is “anti-black tyrant”

"Some of the greatest evils in our country's history stem from corrupt systems that seek to target and subjugate others in order to deny them their freedom and their rights," Trump said, according to NBC
