Transgender activist and former Maryland Senate candidate Chelsea Manning on Tuesday compared living in the United States to being in prison.
Manning, who served seven years in prison before being released last year, said during a public appearance in London that she sees “a lot of similarities” between being in prison and living in the U.S., according to The Guardian.
The article goes on to state the following:
“You think about the surveillance systems, the cameras, or the police presence, and you think about the fact that we have walls around our country, and that is very much the same thing that is inside a prison,” she said. “… I see a lot of similarities between the world out here and the world that was in there.”
Manning also called the U.S. a “large, big prison” and took aim at President Trump, describing him as “the result of the system that we have.”
