(DCWatchdog.com) – “Nobody thought it was possible it could go this bad this fast” in this country, Former President Donald Trump told Newsmax.
“I don’t know if anything” would stop President Joe Biden from seeking re-election in 2024, Trump told Monday’s “Eric Bolling the Balance.”
“We have to make our country great again. Our country’s gone to hell, and it’s gone bad very fast. Nobody thought it was possible it could go this bad this fast.”
“Well, I have to say I love our country. I’ll do what’s right for the country.”
During his 15-minute exclusive phone interview with Eric Bolling, Trump said that “the country’s doing terribly” and “I don’t think we’ve ever been this low.”
“Our country is in a lot of trouble,” Trump added. “Our country has never been like this. And we’re in serious danger with what’s going on in Ukraine and with Russia. You could end up with a world war the way they’re handling it. It’s crazy what they’re doing. It’s crazy.”
He also warned about Iran becoming a nuclear-armed power and China emerging as a world superpower. He also covered the Russian war on Ukraine.
“You can’t rely on China to make America great again, that I can tell you,” Trump said.
“Our country is doing very badly — doing badly, I think, in every respect. I don’t think it’s ever been so low, and we’re in great danger of a world war.”
“We’re in a recession,” Trump added. “This is not something that’s going to happen in two years, they say, a recession. We’re in a recession.”
Trump also claimed that the short stock market revival was only a residual effect of his time in office.
“They were coasting on our great policy,” Trump continued. “They’re not taking the oil. They’re not using the liquid gold, as I call it. They’re not using it. Instead, we’re buying it from other people and paying top dollar. It’s crazy.”
“More importantly, it’s right under our feet,” Trump said. “We have liquid gold right under our feet, and we were taking it like never before, and now we’re begging other countries to give it to us.
“But they’re going green, and green isn’t powerful enough. It can’t fire up our plants, not even close.”
“The cost of [gasoline] is not, in my opinion, not sustainable, and I think that’s what caused inflation, and then all of a sudden everything else started going up, but I think that was the primary cause of it,” Trump concluded. “That was a shock to the system when it went from less than $2 to $5-6-7-8, even $9 and $10, I’m seeing. It’s terrible.”
