Former president Donald Trump on Thursday hinted that his supporters could engage in a protracted campaign of violence if he were to be indicted for any crimes discovered in the myriad criminal investigations into his conduct.

Speaking on the conservative broadcaster Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, Mr Trump said an indictment would not deter him from running for president because he would have “no prohibition against running”.

“But I think if it happened, I think you'd have problems in this country the likes of which perhaps, we've never seen before.

Asked what kinds of problems he was predicting if he were to be charged with a crime, Mr Trump added ominously: “I think you’d have big problems — big problems”.

At the present time, there are at least three separate grand jury investigations looking into the twice-impeached former president and his allies.

The third grand jury probe is a state investigation being overseen by the Fulton County, Georgia district attorney, Fani Willis.

Ms Willis’ office is looking into whether Mr Trump or his allies violated Georgia election laws by trying to pressure state officials into overturning his 2020 election loss. »
