Trump Lays Out Plan to Reverse Joe Biden’s Destructive Agenda
'Our country is being destroyed by these people'
Former President Donald Trump has laid out how he would make America great again and defeat Joe Biden and the Democrats to reverse soaring inflation and gas prices.
In an interview with Just the News, Trump said his plan begins with recapturing GOP control of at least one chamber of Congress in November.
“When I watch to see what’s happening, it’s very, very sad,” Trump said.
“I mean, our country is being destroyed by these people,” Trump added.
“The border is a disaster. We no longer respected. They don’t respect our leader at all. They don’t respect Biden at all," Trump stated.
“It’s so sad to see what’s happened to our great USA. But we can come back. I think these midterms are vital, just vital,” he said.
“We don’t have a free press. We really don’t have free speech anymore. It’s very bad, very dangerous. These elections are going to be absolutely critical for this country,” he added.
Trump said he is confident Republicans can take back the House in the fall elections.
“I think the House is in great shape. I think the Senate is hurt badly by Mitch McConnell, very badly. I think he’s terrible. He’s also terrible for our country,” said Trump.
Trump stated he is not interested in the job of House Speaker.
“It’s not something I want,” he said.
“A lot of people bring it up. It’s brought up all the time.”
He added a second time for emphasis:
“It’s not something I would be interested in.”
“They have no voter ID, defund the police, sanctuary cities, weak military, we’re gonna raise your taxes, no energy independence. All things that were all done,” he said.
“Bad on religion. Bad on the Second Amendment. Bad on oil.”
“The system is totally broken. Our system is broken. And we’re going into socialism. And we’re going into communism,” he added.
As JustTheNews reported:
Trump said he believes runaway inflation, which some fear could reach 10% annualized in March, could be alleviated by quickly ramping up oil and gas production and lowering energy costs that affect everything from transportation to food production.
“We have to straighten out inflation, which we can do much easier than people know,” he said, noting gas was $1.87 a gallon during his presidency.
“If energy comes down, it’s so important,” he said.
“Other parts of inflation are coming down too. I was saying today, ‘I read where food is going to make energy look like it’s a good deal, that the food prices are going to go up much more very soon, much more than the energy prices.’ “
Trump championed the cost of the Biden agenda on everyday Americans, reverting to a strategy he used often in 2016. He noted that in some places gas was nearing $5 a gallon in the Midwest “where it was never that bad” and that people go to stores and cannot find items that used to be readily available.
“Can I give you an example on the supply chain?” Trump asked.
"You go to a store, they don’t have bread, like a third world country.
"They don’t have things.
"You go to buy something at Tiffany, you go to buy something at a hardware store – high or low – they don’t have product.
"They say, even me, ‘When I order things like furnishings for a building or something, they say it’s gonna take nine months to get when it used to be like, same day service.’ “
“We have to immediately seal up the border,” he said.
“And we have to get a lot of the people out because many of these people came from prisons in these countries."
“It’s no longer just those few countries, including Mexico that I talk about all the time.
"It’s now like 140 countries.
"Some people said they didn’t know there were that many.
"They’re just flooding in. And they’re almost all letting their prisoners out into the United States.
"Why wouldn’t they? It’s very expensive, keeping prisoners, and they don’t want them anyway.”
“We’re taking them out by the thousands, bringing them back to their countries,” he said.
“Their countries said no. I said, ‘That’s OK. We’re not going to pay the country anymore. We’re not going to pay you the hundreds of millions.’
"Then they said, ‘Yes, absolutely. We’d love to take them back'.”
The 45th president said the country could reverse declining trust in vote counting by getting states to model their election laws after those in Texas and Florida.
“Texas has a great law. Nothing’s gonna happen there,” he said.
“You have to swamp them because there comes a point when they can’t cheat that much. I believe that happened in Florida. That’s why I did so well,” he added.
Trump also said did not believe Vladimir Putin would have invaded Ukraine if he were president.
“I spoke to Putin about it,” he said.
“I know Putin very well. I spoke to him about a lot of things.
"And I spoke to him about Ukraine, because I know he wanted it.
"But he knew he could not do it. Not with me.”
Trump also noted Biden’s bungled exit from Afghanistan.
“I think what happened, he (Putin) was on the border, he had 200,000 people, and he was negotiating. He was going to make a good deal,” Trump said.
“And then he saw what happened in Afghanistan.
"And he said, ‘Man, these guys are incompetent. Let’s go in.’
"And he didn’t know the force that he’d be met with.”
