Former President Donald Trump never lets an opportunity pass him by to take shots at his successor, but during a recent Fox News interview, the former president’s tone was much more serious.
According to Fox News, in a call-in interview with Sean Hannity, Trump was asked a number of questions concerning President Joe Biden’s first year in office, and the former president had a clear and chilling message for the American public, saying this great nation is “in trouble.”
“It was a very sad time for our country. I want him to forget politics, I want him to do well. He’s got to do well,” Trump said.
He added: “Our country is in trouble… I don’t think we’ve ever had anything like it in this country. When you look at that horrible situation in Afghanistan, the way they got out, getting out was good but the way they got out, we could have gotten that with strength and with dignity and kept Bagram [Air Base].”
Understandably so, Trump hit Biden on several key issues, focusing on the soaring, record inflation currently plaguing the country, along with multiple crises that seem be pushed aside, such as the unchecked illegal immigration at the border, and the supply-chain crisis.
That’s not to mention Biden’s weak response to yet another critically serious situation evolving overseas, as Russia prepares for a possible invasion into Ukraine, which could come at any time, according to experts.
“I don’t think we’ve ever been in this position… I feel ashamed at what’s happened in the last year with our country. I’m ashamed of what’s going on, and so are Americans,” Trump told Hannity.
He added: “They’re ashamed and embarrassed. They haven’t seen this. I don’t think we’ve ever seen this like this.”
Love him or hate him, and politics aside, it should be clear to any person of reasonable intelligence that America was better off in almost every category under Trump, as he wasn’t afraid to make the difficult decisions to put the proverbial train back on the track.
