Donald Trump Elections WTF?!

Trump In Bizarre New Interview: I May Have To Run In 2024 To ‘Save The Country’

Even though he lost badly in the 2020 election to President Joe Biden, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump is suggesting that he’ll likely have no choice but to run again in 2024 because it will be necessary for him to “save the country.”

In an interview with right-winger Lisa Boothe, Trump was asked about his plans of possibly seeking another term in office. He didn’t rule it out, according to The Hill:

“We won it twice. I’ve won it twice and now I have to win it again. I guess if we’re going to save the country, look … I’ll make a decision.

“It won’t be maybe for a little while. You know, a lot of people would like to see a decision immediately, but perhaps there’s also a big group, including maybe myself, that would like to see it after the midterms.”

Trump DID NOT win twice. He won in 2016 and lost in 2020. Ironically, he lost by the exact same electoral vote margin he won by four years earlier, 306-232.

As you’d expect, Trump also attacked President Biden, especially on the issue of Afghanistan, even though Trump began the withdrawal of U.S. forces from the country:

“Nobody’s ever seen embarrassment like this, between the border and Afghanistan [but] I guess Afghanistan blows everything away. There’s never been anything like that … such stupidity and incompetence so I think you’re going to be very happy.”

According to the ex-president, he handled the situation in Afghanistan much better than Biden, even though he failed to cite any facts to support his assertion:

“We had [Afghanistan] so under control, like you wouldn’t believe I dealt with a, I dealt with the Taliban at the highest level. The military would have come out last, not first. That was the big mistake — they took the military and they left 35 or 45,000 people right in harm’s way. This was a horrible miscarriage.”

Will Trump run again? That depends on some factors that have yet to be decided:

  • His health, both mental and physical
  • His legal status, which remains up in the air as several jurisdictions appear ready to bring charges against him
  • Whether or not the GOP eventually turns on him, especially if he drags them down to massive losses in the 2022 midterm election

The other thing to consider is that Trump often says things in interviews just to pretend he’s still relevant. But the country seems to have moved on, and it’s highly unlikely voters will choose to go back to the bad old days of Emperor Donald.
