Trump Pummels Biden, Says US Disrespected Under His Leadership

Former President Donald Trump recently appeared on The Michael Savage Show where he pummeled President Joe Biden and stated that the United States, under his leadership, has lost respect from other countries around the world.

“The problem that we have is that we’re not respected as a country anymore,” the former president said.

“When I left … we were respected by everybody and that includes China. I don’t think we’ve ever had a time in our country like this where we are so totally disrespected,” Trump continued.

He then went on to state that he believes the current crisis in Ukraine would have never happened if he were still the commander-in-chief.

“This would never have been on the table,” he stated. “I had a very good relationship with [Russian President Vladimir Putin]. It was made much tougher because of the Russia hoax, which is now being exposed as bigger than Watergate. And the second biggest scandal is that the newspapers agree that it’s the biggest, but they refuse to write about it.”

“What’s happened to this country is so bad, and a lot of it has to do with the press. They refuse to write about it. Some are doing it big, but a lot of them refuse to write about it because they’re embarrassed and because they’re bad,” the former president remarked.

Trump then said, “The thing that is happening now is, I think, the Americans played right into [Putin’s] hands because they made it very severe and they gave him a lot of cards. Now, he’s got the cards and if they make a settlement, he’s going to make a hell of a settlement out of it.”

“But what’s happened is that by talking of the severity, they’ve given him a lot more cards than he had at the beginning,” he added.

He said special counsel John Durham’s findings, resulting from probing the origins of the FBI’s investigation into claims of Trump’s links to the Russian, is bigger than any revelations from the Watergate scandal.

“You see what came out: The whole thing was a hoax,” he said. “They were infiltrating the Oval Office. That would be punishable in the most stringent way. It’s a spying operation. And they took their spying operation into the oval office. And the press, I guess, is afraid or they’re just bad news or they’re communists and they don’t want to write about it. It’s bigger than Watergate.

“What could be worse than spying in the White House? What could be bigger? The fact that the press isn’t covering something much bigger that Watergate.”

Trump then compared the mainstream media’s reluctance in covering the newly revealed scandal to communism.

“And that to me is the beginning of communism,” the former president said. “That’s how it all starts.”

Trump took an opportunity during the interview to lay a hurting down on Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, noting that he helped McConnell win in Kentucky.

“He asked me to help him,” Trump revealed. “I helped him. I endorsed him. He went up 20 points. If I would have run somebody in Kentucky, they would have won in the primary. And I should have done it. You know some of these guys get elected and they go rogue. It’s one of those things.”

The former president was asked if he would consider Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida as a potential running mate if he runs again in 2024.

“We have a lot of very good people, who could be vice president. Really good people,” he went on to say. “I endorsed Ron … after I endorsed him, he went up like a rocket ship. I’m very strongly vested and invested in him. He’s a good guy and he’s doing a good job. And we have others who are doing a great job.”
