Donald Trump has criticized President Joe Biden, saying the country is so badly run, he never knew things would become so bad.
The former US Presideny reflected on the first year of the Biden presidency, and said the country is “being absolutely destroyed.”
Trump attacked Biden on everything from the supply chain crisis, to foreign policy, while listing out all his administration achieved despite political attacks from Democrats, two impeachment proceedings and Robert Muller’s investigation into possible collusion with Russia.
“I had no idea the country could go down so badly and so quickly,” Trump said.
Talking about the supply chain crisis, Trump said during his administration, “it wasn’t even a thought.”
“The words supply chain never really came up,” he said. “It was something that we had, nobody had any problems, these were not two words in the vocabulary.”
“They were not in the vocabulary of the administration, because everything was running like a fine-tuned machine. And we didn’t have any problems with supply chain.” Trump said
Trump said he had traveled to Los Angeles and “saw the massive containers, thousands and thousands of them where they dock the ships, in the loading and unloading areas and I will tell you, I’ve 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.” he added
Speaking on his own first year in office, Trump said his administration “accomplished so much.”
“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.”
“You know, all of these things, we’ve done so much, and now I’m watching what’s happening to our country and our country is being absolutely destroyed. Destroyed,”
“Our dignity, our strength, it is being sapped and destroyed.” Trump said
He added: “It is hard to believe.”
The former president went on to say that the United States, under Biden’s leadership, “looks weak, indecisive, and incompetent.”
“China is dictating terms to us. Russia on Ukraine. China with Taiwan. Kim Jong Un as you know of North Korea is sending up missile after missile and very importantly, Iran is having a lot of fun doing whatever they want. And our country looks like it is just weak and incompetently run.” Trump said
Trump then attacked the Biden administration for the botched withdrawal of the U.S. military from Afghanistan, for losing “energy independence,” re-joining the Paris Climate Accord, “breaking up trade deals” and more.
“So many things,” Trump said. “Here we go again. Here we go again.”
“I never thought I’d see our country look so weak and ineffective.”
