Joe Biden thought he had the perfect plan to keep Donald Trump out of the White House.

But Biden thought wrong.

And Donald Trump said three words that will stop Joe Biden dead in his tracks.

Special Counsel Jack Smith has added three new charges against former President Donald Trump due to new allegations that Trump sought to delete Mar-a-Lago security footage in the summer of 2022.

Trump responded and told Breitbart News on Thursday that “this is harassment.”

“I just heard it as I’m sitting down. This is harassment. This is election interference,” Trump said when asked about the current indictment and additional charges. “I’m protected by the Presidential Records Act totally. It shouldn’t even be a case. It’s not a criminal case. Where’s Biden with all the documents? He’s got 20 times, 30 times the documents I have, and he has not made it easy for them either. He has been hiding boxes. They’re sending boxes to Chinatown. Boxes are being sent to Chinatown, and yet China is paying them millions of dollars. You explain that one. You don’t even hear about it. All you hear about is Trump. No, this is a two-tier system of injustice. That’s what we have. We have a sick country. Our country is very sick right now. We have a failing nation and it’s a very sad thing to watch.”

Trump spokesman Steven Cheung also slammed Smith’s decision calling it a “continued desperate and flailing attempt by the Biden Crime Family and their Department of Justice to harass President Trump and those around him.”

Trump highlighted the fact that Smith’s office has brought failed cases against other politician before – noting in particular the failed cases against former Virginia GOP Gov. Bob McDonnell and former Sen. John Edwards (D-NC).

“I wouldn’t keep him,” Trump replied when asked if he would fire Smith.

“Jack Smith? Why would I keep him? He is—look, he’s gone after other people. He’s been overturned unanimously in the Supreme Court. He’s destroyed a lot of lives. Lives have been destroyed. He’s destroyed people—he’s destroyed lives… He was Lois Lerner and the IRS case, which was one of the most egregious abuses what happened. The government had to apologize to people. He went after Christians. This is a guy—he’s a wild man. I call him deranged. He’s been overturned. He went after the governor of Virginia—overturned unanimously. He went after another senator or something and was overturned. What he’s done is just horrible. The abuse of power—it is prosecutorial misconduct.”

Trump added that the only reason Biden’s DOJ was bringing these charges against him is because they want to destroy him in the GOP primary, but that it’s now backfired.
