WATCH: Donald Trump Compares Himself To Civil Rights Icon Nelson Mandela

During a speech in New Hampshire on Monday night, Donald Trump compared his current plight to that of former South African President Nelson Mandela. 

In the mind of Donald Trump and his followers, there is no bigger victim than the former President. To them, the multiple court cases he is facing are part of a witch hunt rather than the consequences of his actions. 

Trump eats this support up. He is more than happy to send out fundraising emails each time he is 'targeted by the deep state.'

One would think comparing himself to Mandela, who spent 27 years in prison fighting apartheid would be a bridge too far. But no bridge is too far for Trump who told his supporters, "We have a capital that if you go there, you get shot. With this in mind, there's no way I can get a fair trial. You know, I'm supposed to be getting because Donald Trump challenged the election, so let's put him in jail for the rest of his life."

The former President continued:

"They don't go after the people that cheated. Those people are free. If you want to challenge the result of an election, they hound you. Look what happened this weekend with two good people. They hound them, and they scare them, and they — but we don't get scared... I don't mind being Nelson Mandela because I'm doing it for a reason."
