MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Former President Donald Trump has delivered a speech full of defiance and bluster just a day after his third appearance in court as a criminal defendant. At an Alabama Republican Party dinner Friday night, he insulted prosecutors and declared that the charges he faces only help his 2024 presidential campaign. Trump says, “Any time they file an indictment, we go way up in the polls.” He says one more indictment will help him “close out this election.” Trump pleaded not guilty on Thursday to crimes related to his efforts to overturn the results of his 2020 election loss.
