Donald Trump has soft-pitched a 2024 presidential bid but nothing is set in stone. Probably because Democrats will be out for blood the second he does so if he does announce a running, he’ll likely do so at the last moment. I honestly think it’s the reason House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has chosen to run for office again despite staring down her 82nd birthday.
There are signs that a second Trump run is in the works. For instance, his speeches at the CPAC events but perhaps more telling are the upticks in Trump rallies. One was just held in a field near Florence Regional Airport in northeast South Carolina. Trump supporters lined up early to attend despite the rain and chilly winds.
Trump tore into Biden as he called him “physically and mentally challenged” during this important time in history and my God, is that not the truth?
‘You could take the five worst presidents in American history and they would not have done the damage Joe Biden has done in just 13 months. We have a president representing our country at the most important time in history, who is physically and mentally challenged,’ the former president said.
He claimed Biden ‘failed to deter Russia’s outrageous invasion of Ukraine’ and that Russian President Putin would never have attacked Ukraine during his presidency.
‘The fake news said my personality got us into a war. ‘I’m telling you, that guy’s going to get us into a war.’ But actually, my personality is what kept us out of war. I was the only president in nearly four decades who did not get America into any new conflicts.’ Trump claimed.
Trump also slammed Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, which you won’t likely hear about in the media since they’re still trying to tie him to Russia in any way possible.
‘The Russian invasion of Ukraine is a terrible atrocity that should never have been allowed to happen or would have never happened. I know I speak for everyone here tonight. When I say we are praying for the proud people of Ukraine. They are going through hell,’ he said.
According to USA Today, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says he will continue negotiating with Russia and is waiting for a meeting with its leader, Vladimir Putin despite the escalated attacks by Russia in Ukraine.
So far, Zelensky’s requests have gone unanswered by the Kremlin. During his nightly address to his nation, Zelensky said Sunday that his delegation has a “clear task” to do everything to ensure a meeting between the two presidents, the Associated Press reports.
