Former U.S. President Donald Trump predicted the disappearance of the country in the next three years. In an interview with Newsmax, he expressed confidence that after Joe Biden came to power, "the country went downhill like never before."
Donald Trump believes the United States will disappear after the next presidential election, and he once again expressed his belief that after Joe Biden came to power, the country "went downhill like never before." The 45th President of the United States said this on Newsmax.
"When we go into this election on the 22nd (U.S. House and Senate) and the 24th (presidential election), then we will not have a country left," Trump said.
He also said that the Biden administration is using the Justice Department as a weapon against ordinary Americans who criticize the current U.S. president and the Democrats. Trump said this in response to Biden's demands for the resignation of several people appointed by the former president to military academy boards.
"They use local prosecutors, federal prosecutors. What they're doing is terrible. They're kicking all these people out. These are great people, including you, Sean (Spicer is a network anchor who previously served as White House press secretary for six months in 2017). These are great people, but it won't last," Trump noted.
The politician also opined that the U.S. government is actually run by Barack Obama.
"You know, he (Biden) was going to be a great unifier, but he didn't become one. On the contrary, he is even worse than Obama. A lot of people think that Obama is running the government now," he said.
Trump also did not ignore the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, criticizing the Biden administration on that issue as well.
"We are the laughingstock of the world. What happened in Afghanistan? What is happening on our border that millions of people are crossing? We have no idea who they are. It's a disgrace. What is happening to our country?" the former president remarked.
Trump also believes that under his rule, U.S. troops would have stayed in Afghanistan until all Americans and their Afghan allies were out of there, and military equipment would not have gone to terrorists.
"I want every bolt, every nail, every screw, every tank, and every plane. We gave them (the Taliban) airplanes, hundreds of thousands of machine guns, rifles, and night vision equipment. And Mark Milley (chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States) and Biden are responsible for this. They are incompetent people," said the former president.
Previously, Biden himself, responding to criticism after the death of 12 American soldiers in a terrorist attack in Kabul on August 26, laid the responsibility not only on himself but also on Trump.
Also during the interview, Trump denied that he wanted to attack China. This was reported in a book by journalists Bob Woodward and Robert Costa вЂ” Mark Milley claimed that in the final days of the "unbalanced" Trump presidency, he called China to prevent a possible military conflict between the two countries.
At the end of the interview, the reporter asked the former president when he would announce his decision on whether to run in the next election.
"I won't comment on it, but I think you'll be happy when you hear about it. It's a tough decision, but I will make it very soon. This country will be back soon. We will have it back," Trump responded.
Previously, speaking on Fox News, he said the current state of affairs in the U.S. leaves him no choice but to run for president in 2024.
"Everything is moving toward the point where we just won't have a choice," Trump said when asked about his plans to run in the U.S. presidential election in 2024.
Trump has not yet made an official statement on his participation in the presidential election, but the media has previously speculated that he may become the Republican nominee in 2024.
