Trump Again Suggests He Would Try To Prosecute His Political Opponents If Re-elected

Jun 7, 2024   •   47 MIN
Does former President Trump mean what he says when he keeps suggesting he'll use the justice system for payback if he's elected again? We're Keeping Them Honest. Speaking in Phoenix, at an event put on by conservative activist Charlie Kirk, Trump confined the bulk of his remarks to immigration and the economy, but also railed against his criminal prosecutions saying "We're in more danger from the enemy from within. With these lunatics, these fascists, these communists, and we're going to stop that also." Biden-Harris national campaign co-chair and former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu speaks to Anderson about Trump's comments. Plus, 8o years ago today more than 150,000 Allied troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, France in the largest seaborne invasion in history. The sacrifices made in that defining battle led to the liberation of Europe from Nazi Germany and ultimately the end of WWII. CNN chief international anchor Christiane Amanpour is in Normandy where President Biden and other world leaders gathered to commemorate the historic invasion. Learn more about your ad choices.
