The last friday donald trump He came under the spotlight for posting an image on Truth Social (which has since been removed by the way) of him holding a baseball bat and pretending to hit Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg with a ball.
A few days after that postcard, the former president asked several relatives what they thought of the commotion caused by the photograph and according to a source familiar with the matter told rolling stones that his inner circle gently advised him to steer clear of any comments or posts that were “too obvious” in their violent implications.
The same source also indicated that Trump was also aware of the rejection he generated from some of his allies for his publication.as well as for warning of “death and destruction” if he receives an accusation from Bragg.
“Look, anyone who tells you ‘I’ve known Donald Trump forever, he trusts me, I’m going to tell him to calm down’, you are overestimating your influence. At the end of the day, Trump is going to be Trump, and you can’t stop him from doing everything you wouldn’t. I could do without the ‘death and destruction’ talk, you know?” the source told the aforementioned outlet.
Trump seems genuinely concerned about what he did and behind closed doors he spoke on the subject and received advice “
“But when he asked people what they thought of that, some of us warned the former president about things like the bat (of baseball), and the message to him was twofold and it’s a message that I think he understands. One: don’t give Bragg anything he can use against you. And two: do not make it easy for these people to accuse you of advocating physical violence. You don’t need to give your enemies something to hit you with.”
Trump’s legal representative, Joe Tacopina, has preferred to stay out of the baseball bat scandal, but he couldn’t hide that his client made a mistake.
“I am not (Trump’s) social media consultant. I think it was an ill-advised post that one of your people on social media posted and quickly deleted it when he realized the rhetoric and the photo that was attached to it,” said hosting attorney Chuck Todd in an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press.
Congressman and Trump ally Sean Duffy criticized the way he positioned the prosecutor’s head. It was during an interview with Fox News that he said “Don’t just stand there with a baseball and a picture of Alvin Bragg. This is rude on the part of (former President Trump), whom I hold dear.”
Trump, who has repeatedly denied giving a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet about her alleged affair, too he has taken the time to call Bragg a “communist” as well as an “animal”. He even went so far as to say that the Manhattan district attorney was backed by “Soros” and incidentally called the prosecutors investigating his case “human scum”.
Trump is expected to offer an apology to Bragg in the coming days for the image that ignited social networks and caused anger among his closest circle.
