JF in the News: Trump Defends Johnson, Rips Prosecution in Post-Court Radio Interview

Donald Trump defended embattled House Speaker Mike Johnson, declined to criticize House Republicans over their vote on Ukraine funding and railed against prosecutors trying him in a wide-ranging post-court interview on Monday.

The former president, who had spent the day holed up in hostile territory in the Manhattan courtroom where he is being tried, took to conservative airwaves that evening in an effort to reset the conversation.

“This is all Biden,” Trump told radio host John Fredericks. “It’s all political persecution and interference of this election at a level we have never seen before.”
