In a lengthy video interview with Breitbart News, former President Trump—the front-runner among Republicans for the presidency in 2024—discussed his primary policy priorities in the event that voters choose to send him once more to the White House in the next year.
Trump said he is optimistic and hopeful that he will be able to hold on and win an additional term in the White House. Trump is presently ahead by a wide margin in the GOP primary and in many instances leading or even with sitting Democrat President Biden according to general election polling.
“I believe so.” When asked if he thinks he would win in 2024, Trump responded, “I hope so. I sincerely hope so for the sake of the nation, or else we risk having a defeated nation. Men, women, powerful, intelligent people are constantly approaching me in tears and telling me that if I don’t win, our nation would be destroyed. Our nation has reached its end. I’m sure of it.”
Trump promised Breitbart News on his very first day in office that he will once more “build the strongest economy ever before, in history.”
Trump stated, “You know, we enjoyed the greatest economy throughout history. We are going to try it once again. We had the best economy in the entire history of the world based on our employment and job figures, and we plan to repeat that. However, we’ll be digging for energy. We’re going to use the liquid gold that’s just under our feet. After that, we’ll begin lowering taxes and paying off debt.”
Trump criticized “Bidenomics,” claiming that the administration’s claims of a low unemployment rate are false because of the way the economy has been restructured under this administration.
Trump said that the figure was false because so many people weren’t employed, adding that “real wages are significantly down” and “family income remains way down.”
The wide-open United States border with Mexico, the aborted exit from Afghanistan, the Russian conflict in Ukraine, and Biden’s poor management of U.S.-China ties are just a few of the significant problems that affected Americans during the Biden administration, as highlighted by Trump in this interview.
“As millions of individuals cross our border from unidentified countries—from which we don’t know where they are coming from, and nobody is doing anything about it,” Trump said. “Many of these people are terrorists who have poured into our nation from prisons and jails, as well as from mental hospitals. The situation is extremely depressing. Consider Afghanistan. They received equipment worth $85 billion from us. 13 troops are lost, but a great number suffer horrendous injuries. In Afghanistan, we left Americans behind. Look at what happened in Afghanistan. How terrible that was. That is, in my opinion, the most shameful incident in our nation’s history. That was how awful it was. We had pretty much given up, but I had them in such good form. In the 18 months that I was in charge, not a single soldier was killed; in fact, they were never even fired at since they knew not to. Then when I leave, they act in this absurd manner as they depart. I was the one that was leaving out, but we would have done it well; 21 years is sufficient. We were leaving in a strong, commanding, and respectable manner. It appeared as though we had given up when we left. First, we removed the soldiers. Never heard of that before? First, we removed the soldiers. Given that it was barely an hour away from where China makes its nuclear weapons, we forfeited Bagram Air Base, which would have been ideal for them. What has transpired is really sad. Consider this. Ukraine would not have existed. Russia would never have launched an assault. If I had been president, the events in Ukraine wouldn’t have taken place. It was never going to happen, and it never did. Four years passed without it happening. I also can’t predict what China will do, but if Taiwan had never happened, there wouldn’t be any ships buzzing the area now. They wouldn’t be acting as they are at this moment.”
