Former President Donald Trump made controversial remarks at a rally in Michigan, where he discussed his legal troubles and criticized the judiciary.

He mentioned facing significant financial penalties and being barred from leading roles in New York companies.

“My whole life I didn’t know what indictment meant,” Trump joked.

“[I] got indicted more than Alphonse Capone, Scarface,” he said. “I’m just doing something for incredible people — it’s called the American people … It doesn’t bother me.”

“This judge is a lunatic,” Trump later said.

“I knew I would lose a billion or $2 billion if I was honest running for president and being president,” Trump said. “It was the best thing I ever did.”

“It’s a disgusting thing. I deal in the bank. The bank is happy. There’s no victims,” he said. “Nobody is going back to New York state. A lot of people are leaving — a lot of businesses.”

Trump also blamed President Biden for his legal woes and expressed optimism about his chances in the upcoming election.

“Our court system is a mess,” Trump said.

“Congress ought to impeach crooked Joe Biden for attacking his political opponent by weaponizing, the DOJ, FBI, and even local DAs and attorney generals against his opponent — me,” he said.

Despite ongoing legal battles and allegations, he remains a strong contender for the GOP nomination.

“If we win Michigan, we’re going to win the election,” Trump said.
