President of El Salvador tells Trump Jr. 'We don't jail the opposition'

Even the president of El Salvador is criticizing American Democrats for using the legal system to target their chief political rival - former President Donald Trump. 

El Salvador President Nayib Bukele said as much to Trump's eldest son - Donald Trump Jr. - just days after the former president was convicted by a New York City jury of what legal experts from across the political spectrum are referring to as a politically motivated sham trial.

The statement was made by Bukele to Trump Jr. in a video that the latter posted to his TikTok account on Sunday.

The video, at the time of this writing, has nearly 50,000 likes.

"We don't jail the opposition"

In the video, Trump Jr. congratulates Bukele on his massive election victory earlier this year, when he won with a staggering 85% of the vote.

"And you do it all without having to jail your political opponents," Trump Jr. quipped, clearly referring to how American Democrats are targeting his father, their chief political opponent.

Trump Jr. went on to praise Bukele for cleaning up crime in his country, saying that they are able to do the video "because there's no more crime." And, here, once again, Trump Jr. noted how Bukele has not thrown his rivals in jail.

It was at this point that Bukele joked, "We don't jail the opposition."

This may end up being one of the ways in which El Salvador is actually superior to the United States.


As mentioned at the outset, a New York City jury has found Trump guilty of all of the criminal charges that the George Soros-backed Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) has brought against him.

At the current moment, we do not know what Trump's penalty will be. The judge overseeing the case - Judge Juan Merchan - has yet to announce it.

Instead, Merchan has decided to set the sentencing for July - just days ahead of the Republican National Convention, providing further evidence of the real purpose of this political trial.

Ordinarily, legal experts say that there is no way that Trump would be put in prison for this alleged offense. But, given what we have seen from Merchan during the trial, nothing is outside the realm of possibility.

Trump, over the weekend, said that he is "okay" with any form of confinement that Merchan may impose upon him. But, he suggested that many Americans might not be and that his confinement might be a "breaking point" for the country.
