Former President Donald Trump is predicting the 46th president could face criminal charges after the 2024 election.
In a video posted on Truth Social, Trump spoke about his argument he should be immune from prosecution related to the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol because the charges stem from actions he took as president.
He then claimed President Joe Biden directed the Justice Department to indict him for political purposes.
“[Biden] told his DOJ to do it, ‘Go indict him.’ Because he’s losing badly in the polls, so badly that he figures this is the only way he can win. The only problem is that thus far, it’s pushed us way up in the polls… because people see it’s a scam,” Trump insisted.

His comment comes as RealClearPolitics’ average of polls shows Trump leading Biden by 2.2 points.
Meanwhile, Biden clocked in the lowest approval rating for an incumbent president facing re-election in NBC News’ last poll of 2023.
Trump went on:
“Frankly, it’s never happened in our country before. It only happens in third-world countries or banana republics. They’re using their Department of Injustice to go after his political [opponent], and this is all him, a hundred percent him. He’s the one that told them to do it and they obey his orders. It’s a shame. Never happened in the United States before, but it’s happened now.”
Finally, Trump insisted, “And he has to be careful because that can happen to him also. The next president, whoever that may be, has a statute of limitations that go back six years. That’s a long time, Joe. You have to be very careful. We have to guard and protect our country. We have to do what’s right for our country.”
“You don’t indict your political opponent because he opposes the corrupt election, which you know was corrupt… You don’t indict your political opponent,” he added.
The video comes as Trump is facing 91 criminal indictments in four different cases.
