The great national nightmare that was Donald Trump’s presidency is finally over and America is trying to return to some semblance of sanity and reason under Joe Biden. However, just when you thought it might be time to take a sigh of relief, think again: Donald Trump says that despite being impeached twice, he’s “100 percent thinking about running” for president in 2024. Why, God, why?!
- Of course he announced this on Fox. Because Trump only trusts fake news, he made his revelation about his hope of taking up the highest office in the land again while appearing on Mornings with Maria on Fox Business on Thursday morning. Host Maria Bartiromo questioned Trump on whether he’d consider throwing his name in the hat for the 2024 election, to which her responded, “Yes, 100 percent.”
- Trump actually thinks people want him back in office. While inexplicably, there are still Trump supporters out there who agree with his warped ideologies, I feel like it’s pretty clear that the majority of sound-minded people definitely don’t want him anywhere near the Oval Office again for the rest of his life. However, ever delusional, Trump thinks otherwise. “The polls show that everybody wants me to do it. One hundred percent I’m thinking about running, and we will, I think, be very successful,” he (falsely) claimed. Newsflash, buddy: the ultimate “poll,” i.e. the election, proved otherwise.
- There were loads of other false claims made during the interview. Like the fact that Trump believes there would be no COVID-19 vaccine if it weren’t for him. “If I wasn’t president, we wouldn’t have a vaccine,” he boasted. He also insisted that China will “take over this country if they don’t do something very quickly.” Trump also slammed taxing the rich, claiming it will have a “devastating impact” on the American economy.
- At the end of the day, it was all promo for Trump himself. As per usual, he had nothing but negativity to spew out during his interview because Trump believes he’s a god among men and sees himself as a savior figure. “Have courage. It’s going to happen, we are going to turn it around. I am with you,” he said during the interview. God, I hope not.
