Donald Trump came out with one of his strongest statements yet, tearing a strip off of Joe Biden and his administration on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11/2001 terrorist attacks.
And in doing so he offered the strongest hint he ever has at him campaigning again for President of the United States in 2024.
“For the great people of our country this is a very sad day,” he said to start the video. “September 11 represents great sorrow for our country.”
“Many things were displayed that day, including, most importantly, the bravery of our police, fire, and first responders of every kind. The job they did was truly unbelievable. We love them and we thank them,” he said.
He then moved his attention to Biden and his administration’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“It is also a sad time for the way our war on those that did such harm to our country ended last week,” he said. “The loss of 13 great warriors and the many more who were wounded, should never have happened. Overall, two hundred and fifty people were killed in Afghanistan last week, and so many more were seriously injured.”
“We had $85 billion of the finest and most sophisticated military equipment, taken from us without even a shot being fired. The leader of our country was made to look like a fool, and that can never be allowed to happen,” the 45th President of the United States said.
“It was caused by bad planning, incredible weakness, and leaders who truly didn’t understand what was happening. This is the 20th year of this war, and should have been a year of victory and honor, and strength. Instead, Joe Biden and his inept administration surrendered in defeat. We will live on, but, sadly, our country will be wounded for a long period of time. We will struggle to recover from the embarrassment this incompetence has caused,” he said before offering a hint at what are presumably his intentions. “Do not fear, however, America will be made great again.”
Biden should be concerned about it because a poll last month showed that Trump would defeat him if the election were held that day.
According to a poll from Rasmussen Reports, 37% said they would vote for Joe Biden and 43% said they would vote for Donald Trump.
The poll also found that 10% of Democrats said they regret their vote in the 2020 Presidential election.
Trump dropped a major hint that week about whether he will run for president in 2024.
During an interview on Fox News, anchor Sean Hannity asked Trump if he will be making another presidential run in three years.
Below is a transcript of the exchange:
Hannity: Will you, are you considering a run again in 2024, I will let you answer it any way you want, but go back to the original question, now that we have all of these Americans behind enemy lines, you have in the 45 seconds we have left, what would you do now to help with that specific situation?
Trump: Because the campaign finance laws are extremely complicated and unbelievably stupid, I’m actually not allowed to answer that question, can you believe that? But I will put it this way, I think you will be happy and a lot of our friends will be happy. But I’m not actually allowed to answer it. It makes it very difficult if I do, so people, you’re going to be happy, because I love this country and I hate to see what is happening.
Is Donald Trump running for president in 2024 or will he sit back and play kingmaker?
The Washington Examiner reported last week that former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer says Trump is gearing up to run.
“He’s in,” Spicer said during a preview interview of his upcoming book, “Radical Nation: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s Dangerous Plan for America.”
