Conservatives railed against the “banana republic” vibes coming from the corrupt Democrat machine after it was revealed President Donald Trump faced a potential arrest this upcoming Tuesday. Manhatten’s far-left District Attorney Alvin Bragg has been going after Trump for his alleged payments and cover-up relating to a past relationship with stripper Stormy Daniels.
Breitbart said “lawmakers and conservative figures and commenters” all blasted the impending spectacle, which they say reveals how the modern justice system is nothing more than a tool to cudgel against regular Americans. Breitbart wrote:
Republican lawmakers and conservative figures and commentators said the predicted arrest of Trump, who is running for president in 2024, shows how the justice system is “weaponized against all Americans” and warned that the United States is turning into a “banana republic.” Even so, many conservatives wager an arrest would only further reveal the extent of Democrat corruption, ultimately skyrocketing support for Trump’s presidential run.
Condemnation came from the likes of Trump’s own politically-active son Donald Jr as well as House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and radio show host and political commentator Clay Travis, among others.
“Remember this?” Donald Trump Jr. captioned above a tweet with a famous meme of his father saying, “They’re not after me. They’re after you. I’m just in the way.”
“ Well now more than ever it’s being proven right. If they can take him out they’re one step closer to taking you and your freedoms out… and apparently that’s been the plan all along,” he added.

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy also blasted the “outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA” in a vicious tweet sent over the weekend.
“Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump,” said House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who called for an immediate investigation into “if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions.”

Sen. Eric Schmitt (R-MO) also shared a tweet on Saturday, saying the “left’s conduct is similar to the conduct you find in a banana republic where the authoritarian state punishes its political enemies with criminal prosecutions in search of crimes.”
“Trump Derangement Syndrome does not provide legal cover. The public rightfully expects prosecutors to carry out our responsibilities without political prejudice. Indictments, investigations and incarceration to settle political scores shows a deep contempt for the rule of law,” the first-term Senator added.
And Clay Travis, founder of Outkick, a Fox News contributor, and host of the late and great Rush Limbaugh’s time slot, pointed out that the people claiming Trump is a threat to democracy are the same people about to “indict the chief political rival of their party” and potentially “put him in jail.”
“The same people who told you Donald Trump was a direct threat to American democracy are about to indict the chief political rival of their party and try to put him in jail. This has never happened before in American history. The Democrats under Joe Biden — and their media allies — are everything they told you Trump was — the actual authoritarian dictators hell bent on complete political power,” Travis said.
“This is literally happening the same week that we received direct evidence of multiple members of the Biden family receiving millions of dollars in payments from China, our chief political adversary, just because of their last name,” he added. “If anyone should be arrested next week, it’s the entire Biden crime family. Trump is being arrested for allegedly paying a porn star money. Meanwhile China is paying millions to the Biden’s entirely for political favor. It’s totally bonkers. We now live in a banana republic.
