“I guess a bad call from a doctor or something, right?” Trump said. “You get that call and say, ‘sir, how you doing? Come on down here and see us because we got a bad report, right?’ So things happen through God, they happen, but I feel so good and I hate what’s happening to our country.”
Trump has a long list of concerns about the Biden administration. After being called the most pro-life president ever, Trump said he has seen the exact opposite approach from this Catholic president. “If you look at his policies and if you look at what he’s doing to religion and organized religion, if you look at what’s going on, I don’t know how the Catholic Church can be supportive of him,” he said.
Biden’s support among independent voters has dropped because of the southern border situation, and Trump puts the blame squarely on the current president.
“All he had to do is, go to the beach, just relax Joe, just go to the beach,” Trump said. “We had it the best ever in the history of that border, the southern border, and now it’s the worst in history and it’s probably the worst border anywhere in the world if you think of it, because no border has ever been like what’s happening at our border. It’s the destruction from inside of our country.”
Trump said he supports vaccination but opposes mandates. “Since I left, I think people just don’t trust the Biden administration or Biden,” he said. “Since I left, now you have the mandate fight, and that’s a big fight by the way. You have to allow people their freedoms.”
The latest polls could be giving the former president some encouragement. Polling released last week showed that if he were matched against Biden in 2024 he would win by 10 points. In a matchup against Vice President Kamala Harris he would win by 14 points.
