Trump says he will create task force to review cases of political prisoners targeted by Biden admin
"The political repression is immoral and it's very, very un-American and it's very dangerous for them to be playing that game," Trump said.
Former President Donald Trump promised at the Pray Vote Stand Summit that if elected in 2024, he would create a task force to review the cases of political prisoners targeted by the Biden administration.
"The political repression is immoral and it's very, very un-American and it's very dangerous for them to be playing that game," Trump said during his speech Friday. "To reverse these cruel travesties of justice, tonight I'm announcing that the moment I win the election, I will appoint a special task force to rapidly review the cases of every political prisoner who has been unjustly persecuted by the Biden administration."
The former president referenced the five anti-abortion activists who each face up to ten years in prison for their involvement in a 2020 protest at a Washington, D.C., abortion clinic as examples of political prisoners.
He also mentioned that under Biden, some protesters are facing up to 10, 15 and 20 years in prison "in retribution for their political beliefs," presumably referencing the January 6 prisoners.
"Meanwhile, Antifa and other groups burned down cities like Portland and Minneapolis," Trump said. "They went into Seattle. They basically took over a big percentage of the city. They kill people, they loot, they plunder and they go free."
Trump said he wanted to investigate what was happening quickly.
"I want to see what's going on," he stated. "It's a horrible thing that's happening."
