Donald Trump calls President Joe Biden “enemy of the state” at Pennsylvania rally

Former US president Donald Trump has called President Joe Biden an “enemy of the state” at his first rally since the FBI had searched his Florida resort for sensitive files.

Speaking to thousands of supporters in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, Trump accuses Biden of weaponizing the FBI against him.

Trump believes that the raid was one of the most shocking abuses of power by any administration in American history. He was in the state to promote two Republican candidates.

Dr. Mehmet Oz is running for the US Senate, and state Senator Doug Mastriano is in the contest to become Pennsylvania’s next governor.

Trump spends the first part of his nearly two-hour speech criticizing the FBI search early last month.

FBI agents conducting the search have found dozens of empty folders marked as classified, and top secret files have been recovered from his personal office, BBC reports.

The 76-year-old who is being investigated over his handling of classified records has denied wrongdoing.

Apart from the raid, the ex-president returned to familiar themes at the Pennsylvania rally: false claims that the 2020 election was stolen from him, attacks on rivals in the Democratic Party, and promises to “save our country”, BBC reports.
