Trump is met with silence from GOP audience after complaining about being the most 'persecuted' person in American history
- Trump's statement came at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Florida.
- "Certainly, there's been no politician or president treated like I've been treated," he said.
Former President Donald Trump says no one in American history has been as persecuted as he has.
"A friend of mine once said that I was the most persecuted person in the history of our country," he said at the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Tampa, Florida, on Saturday. "I never thought of it that way. I never had time. I was always fighting these people that were trying to persecute me."
He doubled down: "I didn't have time to think about getting persecuted because I was fighting persecution," continuing to add, "Certainly, there's been no politician or president treated like I've been treated."
His remarks came after an introductory video montage and "God Bless the USA" by Lee Greenwood played. As fire blasted from the stage, Trump entered, tossed out "TRUMP WAS RIGHT" hats, and was greeted by a room full of cheers.
On Friday, the former president also spoke at a rally in Arizona where he was met with boos over his endorsement of Eli Crane, an Arizona GOP congressional candidate.
"But you like me, right?" Trump said before a small giggle.
