Former President Donald Trump shared with Republicans at a fundraising event in South Carolina late on Aug. 5 his thoughts on the indictments against him this year, saying, “I’m being indicted for you.”

Gov. Henry McMaster introduced Mr. Trump as the keynote speaker at the 56th Annual Silver Elephant Dinner hosted by the South Carolina Republican Party in Columbia.

“Every time the radical left Democrats do this and the Marxist, Communist, fascists indict me, I consider it a great badge of honor, because I’m being indicted for you,” Mr. Trump, the Republican 2024 presidential frontrunner, said at the event. “I am being indicted for you.

“I don’t like that deal so much, by the way. I don’t like that deal, but that’s okay,” he continued. “I’m being indicted because of what we’ve done, and I’m being indicted because they’re afraid of all of us, because we have a movement that’s never been seen in the history of our country—Make America Great Again.

“It’s never been seen. There’s never been anything like this. And never forget our enemies want to stop us because we are the only ones who can stop them. We’re the only ones. And this is why this election is so important,” he said.

‘Disintegration of the Values’

Held at the S.C. State Fairgrounds, the annual dinner is the largest South Carolina Republican fundraising event of the year and the longest-standing GOP event in the state’s history. This is the 56th year for the event and over 1,300 people attended.
