  • Trump’s statement came at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Florida.

  • “Certainly, no politician or president has been treated the way I have been treated,” he said.

  • On Friday, the former president spoke at a rally in Arizona, where he was booed.

Former President Donald Trump says no one in American history has been as persecuted as he has been.

“A friend of mine once said I was the most persecuted person in our country’s history,” he said Saturday at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Tampa, Florida. “I never thought about it that way. I never had time. I always fought these people who tried to persecute me.”

He did it twice: “I didn’t have time to think about prosecution because I was fighting persecution,” he added: “Certainly no politician or president has been treated the way I have been treated.”

His comments came after a introductory video montage and “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood. As the fire shot from the stage, Trump entered, threw out the “TRUMP WAS RIGHT” hats and was greeted by a crowd of cheers.

On Friday, the former president also spoke at a rally in Arizona, where he was greeted with booing over his endorsement of Eli Crane, a candidate for the Arizona GOP Congress.

“But you like me, don’t you?” Trump said for a small laugh.
