El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele, who once described his own country as ‘Third World,’ slammed the indictment of former President Donald Trump, suggesting America itself would view similar actions in another country as an attack on democracy.
“Think what you want about former President Trump and the reasons he’s being indicted,” Bukele tweeted earlier this week. “But just imagine if this happened in any other country, where a government arrested the main opposition candidate.”
“The United States’ ability to use ‘democracy’ as foreign policy is gone,” he added.
That’s right. The president of a Third World country is ridiculing the United States of America over the politically-motivated arrest of a presidential candidate.
Did you ever think you’d see a day like this? In your country?
Bukele’s tweet currently has over 13 million views according to Twitter’s analytics.

El Salvador President Nayib Bukele Slams Trump Indictment
Donald Trump, the current frontrunner for the GOP nomination for President in 2024, concurs that the unfolding events are something you’d never have thought possible in this country.
“I never thought anything like this could happen in America. I never thought it could happen,” he said at a Mar-a-Lago speech following his indictment. “The only crime that I have committed is to fearlessly defend our nation from those who seek to destroy it.”
“A local failed district attorney charging a former President of the United States for the first time in history on a basis that every single pundit and legal analyst said there is no case — there’s no case,” Trump added.

Trump was arraigned after being charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree, low-level felonies in New York State but which carry a potential for a 4-year prison sentence each.
He pleaded not guilty.
The case, centered on alleged ‘hush money’ payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels, is something federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York opted not to pursue in 2019.
The Federal Election Commission dropped its review of the case in 2021.
I may not agree with everything President Bukele does or says, but he’s right! We’ve become a 3rd world Banana Republic that persecutes political opponents. https://t.co/iJUNITHDlk

More Criticism of America From the Outside World
This isn’t the first time El Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele has weighed in on the state of America in the post-2020 election era.
In an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson last year, Bukele noted that the demise of America “has to come from within.”
“No external enemy can cause this much damage,” he lamented, before describing how Democrats have turned once-pristine American cities into hell holes.
“I mean, I’m from El Salvador, a third-world country in Central America, and I myself see cities here and say I wouldn’t live here,” Bukele said. “That would be unthinkable three decades ago, that a Salvadoran wouldn’t want to live in a U.S. main city.”
He would go on to tell Carlson that he’d fear for his safety in cities like San Francisco, Philadelphia, New York, and Chicago.
Bukele is right. The demise of America has come from within. It comes from Democrats who systematically destroy cities and criminally pursue their political opponents. And it comes from spineless Republicans who get really angry about it but ultimately do nothing to stop it.
Bukele’s comments are also not the first time leaders from other nations have had to step in and remark about the state of affairs in America following the 2020 election.
The censorship of former President Trump and his supporters had gotten so bad by January 2021 that world leaders from other countries began lecturing America on free speech.
In addition to the German Chancellor & Mexican President, 2 French ministers said they were “shocked” & disturbed by the spate of Silicon Valley censorship, including against Trump, calling tech giants “the digital oligarchy” & a “threat to democracy.”https://t.co/wk4HLo76J6 pic.twitter.com/ZKLGyr3lSo

At what point should we be embarrassed by what’s going on?
Democrats are turning America into a Third World banana republic and the one party who could stop them literally thinks the most important thing in the world is Ukraine.
The most important thing in the world right now is America. The biggest threat to America is what is happening in Manhattan today. Who is willing to stand up and fight?
