El Salvador president says America can't lecture other countries on democracy after Trump indictment
'Sadly, it’ll be very hard for US Foreign Policy to use arguments such as “democracy” and “free and fair elections,' Bukele wrote
El Salvador President Nayib Bukele says America has lost all arguments when it comes to the concept of democracy in the midst of the Trump indictment and arraignment.
Last week when it was announced that President Trump would be indicted, Bukele put out a statement via social media that stated "Imagine if this happened to a leading opposition presidential candidate here in El Salvador"
He later added: "Sadly, it’ll be very hard for US Foreign Policy to use arguments such as 'democracy' and 'free and fair elections', or try to condemn 'political persecution' in other countries, from now on."
Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records and conspiracy related to his alleged role in hush money payments to two women.
A Manhattan grand jury voted to indict former President Trump last week, making him the first former president to face criminal charges.
The 45th president is expected to make a speech about the situation at his home, Mar-a-Lago, Tuesday evening.
