Trump Declares “GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH”


President Trump channeled his inner Patrick Henry in his latest Truth Social post.

On Wednesday morning, Trump posted. lengthy Truth Socila statement and shared, “It is a really bad feeling to have your Constitutional Right to Free Speech, such a big part of life in our Country, so unfairly taken from you, especially when all of the sleazebags, lowlifes, and grifters that you oppose are allowed to say absolutely anything that they want.”

Trump’s comments come as Judge Juam Merchan held Trump in contempt of Court for posts on Truth Social that mentioned several witnesses in the trial.

In conclusion of his post, Trump wrote in all caps, “Give me liberty or give me death.”

Take a look:

Per Newsweek:

In his post on Truth Social, Trump also said he was being targeted in an effort to derail his bid to reclaim the White House. This November, Trump is expected to run against President Joe Biden in a rematch of the 2020 race.

“This Fascist mindset is all coming from D.C. It is a sophisticated hit job on Crooked Joe Biden’s Political Opponent, ME!” Trump wrote.

He also said that other judges who oversaw his civil fraud and defamation trials were “corrupt.”

“What these THUGS are doing is AN ATTACK ON THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, AND OUR ONCE GREAT NATION ITSELF,” Trump wrote. “OUR FIRST AMENDMENT MUST STAND, FREE AND STRONG. ‘GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH!'”

Fox News added these details:

Former President Donald Trump took to social media on Wednesday with an unequivocal claim that keeping and expressing his constitutional rights were of the utmost importance to him, despite any penalty he could face amid a gag order imposed by a New York judge.

“Give me liberty or give me death,” he wrote in an all-caps message on Truth Social, quoting the American Founding Father Patrick Henry.

The comment comes as Judge Juan Merchan said on Monday that he will consider jail time for Trump, should he continue to violate a gag order imposed upon him in his ongoing criminal trial.

“It is a really bad feeling to have your Constitutional Right to Free Speech, such a big part of life in our Country, so unfairly taken from you, especially when all of the sleazebags, lowlifes, and grifters that you oppose are allowed to say absolutely anything that they want,” Trump’s post continued. “It is hard to sit back and listen to lies and false statements be made against you knowing that if you respond, even in the most modest fashion, you are told by a Corrupt and Highly Conflicted Judge that you will be put in prison, maybe for a long period of time.”
