President Joe Biden’s first year was a rough one, by most metrics. Polls show plummeting approval ratings in the latter half of the year, as many residents were frustrated with the administration.
Surveys showed citizens thought Biden wasn’t focusing on the issues that matter most, and numerous crises hurt the President’s reputation. Inflation, the border situation, and Afghanistan topped the list.
And now, former POTUS Donald Trump is weighing in—and it isn’t pretty.
Trump sat down with Fox News to discuss Biden’s first 365 days in the White House. As one might expect, Trump didn’t hold back and lambasted the current leader for failing across the board.
The most hard-hitting statement came early, when he said:
I had no idea the country could go down so badly and so quickly.
Trump added that the nation is “being completely destroyed” in a very short span of time. Even Donald wasn’t expecting things to take such a steep downward turn under Biden.
Then the Republican lightning rod tackled the ongoing supply chain crisis.
He started by saying that during his administration, “it wasn’t even a thought.” In fact, Trump stated that “supply chain” weren’t even “two words in the vocabulary” of his team.
He cited being in Los Angeles and seeing “thousands and thousands” of shipping containers sitting on the docks, and he’d “never seen anything like it”:
They are stacked up to the sky. It is going to take a long time for them to break it up.
It is very bad, very bad. It’s going to take a long time to fix it.
The supply chain problems also affected the release of Trump’s new book, “Our Journey Together.”
He says that when they tried printing 300,000 copies, “they don’t even have paper.” On top of that, the manufacturers don’t have enough glue or leather, either, something the publishers had never seen before.
On the flip side, Trump touted his accomplishments in office:
We accomplished very early on the greatest tax cuts in history, the greatest regulation cuts in history, Space Force, we re-built the military over a period of time and re-built the military.
We did things that nobody thought— Anwar, we got Anwar approved. Ronald Reagan tried to get it done, everybody did, nobody could get it done, we got it.
Would have been perhaps the biggest drilling site, energy site in the world and it was terminated by Biden and Lisa Murkowski made it possible to have it terminated.
Trump added that he’s “watching our country being absolutely destroyed,” and “our dignity, our strength, it is being sapped and destroyed.”
But above all, Trump seemed frustrated with America’s “weak” position in regards to the rest of the world.
He says the U.S. under Biden “looks weak, indecisive, and incompetent.” Trump also claimed that “China is dictating terms to us,” and we have issues with other countries llike North Korea and Iran.
The former President hasn’t been shy about criticizing the current administration.
But given the difficulties the nation now faces after Biden’s first year, it seems even Trump is stunned at just how far the country has fallen. This is why many think Trump will run again.
He hasn’t confirmed anything but at this point, he probably likes his chances.
- Former President Donald Trump says Joe Biden is “absolutely destroying the country.”
- He claims Biden makes America look “weak, indecisive, and incompetent,” and he never thought it would get this bad.
- Trump also slammed the supply chain issues, and touted his administration’s accomplishments.
