Former President Donald Trump told partygoers at a New York Young Republican Club event that the indictments against him have ‘opened Pandora’s box’ and that Joe Biden should ‘be very careful what you wish for’.
Talking at Saturday evening’s event Trump told a crowd chanting his name that Biden has ‘opened up a Pandora’s box that will never let our country be the same.
‘I can only say to Joe: Be very careful what you wish for, but you have done is a terrible thing,’ the New York Post reported.
The event was hosted at Cipriani’s flagship location on New York City’s Wall Street where roughly a thousand guests gathered, including notable Republicans Lauren Boebert and Matt Gaetz.
‘I am being indicted for you. These are not indictments in the traditional sense. These are Biden indictments against their political opponent,’ Trump told the event.

The former president currently faces 91 felony counts from four separate state and federal probes.
‘I am the first guy who ever got indicted whose poll number went up,’ he said before comparing himself to the infamous gangster Al Capone.
Trump, who is the front runner for the Republican nomination, vowed to win White House in the 2024 presidential election. He even said he would win Democrat New York.
‘We’re going to take New York,’ Trump said to a rapturous audience.
‘I believe we have a great chance … With hundreds of thousands of people living on the sidewalks and streets and illegal aliens and state like nobody thought possible.’
Trump also laid into his rivals, mocking Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as ‘DeSanctimonious,’ and his former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley as ‘birdbrain’ the post reported.
Rep. Cory Mills (R-Fla.), Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Col.) and Andrew Giuliani were seen at a VIP cocktail hour ahead of the main event.
Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon also purchased his own table for the event, where individual tickets ran about $700 a head.

It comes as a new poll suggests Donald Trump could beat Joe Biden in next year’s presidential race.
President Biden’s approval rating has sagged, leaving him 4 points behind former president Trump, according to a Wall Street Journal survey of 1,500 registered voters.
On a hypothetical ballot between just the two candidates Trump would receive 47 percent of the vote to Biden’s 43 percent.
Trump’s lead rises to 6 points, 37 percent to 31 percent’s, when five potential third-party and independent candidates are included.
The survey found widespread discontent with the president’s policies, including his economic agenda and concerns over his age.
President Biden is also facing the challenge of a fresh indictment filed against his son Hunter this week.

Between 2016 and 2020 Hunter allegedly spent more than $683,000 on ‘various women’ and almost $400,000 on ‘clothing and accessories’
The Department of Justice filed new criminal charges against Hunter Biden in California on Thursday
The Department of Justice has filed nine new criminal charges against the younger Biden on Thursday.
All nine charges relate to tax, including two felony charges for filing a false return, a felony charge for tax evasion, four failure to pay charges, and a further two charges for failure to file. The charges span the 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 tax years.
Prosecutors allege President Joe Biden’s son spent millions on an ‘extravagant lifestyle’ while avoiding paying taxes for years. The Justice Department says Hunter faces up to 17 years in prison.
The 53-year-old is also facing up to 25 years in prison on felony gun charges in Delaware in the second trial that could have a devastating impact on his father’s 2024 campaign.
The indictment states that despite receiving millions in personal income and financial support from a friend, Hunter ‘spent this money on drugs, escorts and girlfriends, luxury hotels and rental properties, exotic cars, clothing, and other items of a personal nature, in short, everything but his taxes’.
