Following his conviction for falsifying business records by a New York jury last week, former President Donald Trump expressed interest in prosecuting his political opponents as a form of retribution.

In addition to his retention of government documents after leaving office, Trump is also under indictment in three additional jurisdictions in connection with his efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

On the Tuesday edition of Greg Kelly Reports, Newsmax host Greg Kelly conducted a telephone interview with former President Donald Trump, inquiring as to whether the conviction would enhance his prospects of winning the November election.

“Is it possible that this is a net positive? A lot of money is coming in, a lot of support. Is it a net positive?” Kelly asked.

“Well, they’re nasty people. They’re crooked as hell. They’re nasty, vicious people.” Trump said in response.

“Does that mean the next president does it to them? That’s really the question. You know, I said on a recent show that I did, a good show, good people, you would like these people even though they’re competitors. But you know, when I mentioned Hillary’s name, they’d all scream “Lock her up! Lock her up! Lock her up!” And everybody got a kick out of it and all…” he continued.

“And wouldn’t it be really bad like, as an example, Hillary with the hammering of her cell phones and all of the things she did, but wouldn’t it be terrible to throw the president’s wife and the former secretary of state– you think of it, the former secretary of state, but the president, the president’s wife into jail. Wouldn’t that be a terrible thing? But they want to do it. So, you know, it’s like it’s, it’s a terrible, terrible path that they’re leading us to.” he added.

“And it’s very possible that it’s gonna have to happen to them.” Trump concluded ominiously.
