Former President Donald Trump told Breitbart News exclusively that the United States of America is “much weaker now” under Democrat President Joe Biden’s leadership and that the world does not “respect” America anymore, thanks to that weakness.
“We’re not respected anymore,” Trump said in an exclusive interview on Breitbart News Saturday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel.
“I really think if you look at the border, it’s really terrible and a terrible thing to watch. I look at it from other countries with millions of people pouring into our country totally unchecked, unvetted,”
Trump continued. “Millions of people, they’re dumping their prisons—other countries—into our country. They’re just coming in at will. We had the strongest border in history. Now, we have the weakest by far in history. But I think that the Afghanistan pullout or surrender or whatever you want to call it has totally weakened us in the eyes of our nations. It has totally weakened our country.
Our military is great. Our generals are great, except for our television generals; they don’t know what the hell they’re doing. But I’ll tell you, I really believe that that whole Afghanistan disaster was, nobody really believes it. It’s so hard. Our country feels so low right now. It’s never been so embarrassed.
When they see that, China, you know, is watching that very closely. So is Russia and North Korea and Iran. Iran looks at that, and they say, ‘You know, what do we have to deal with these people for?’ They won’t even talk to us. They were ready to sign a deal. They would have signed a deal with me within one week after the election—which turned out to be rigged. It was a rigged election. And that’s what we get for it. So it’s one of those things. It’s a terrible thing. I don’t think our country has ever been thought of more badly than it is right now.”
Trump hammered the Biden economy as well, noting that Americans are being forced to spend much more this holiday season for presents and travel to see family—all of which is Biden’s and the Democrats’ fault.
“They’re spending a lot more also because they can’t get anything,” Trump said. “They can’t buy the things that are being shipped from other countries. They can’t buy presents. They can’t do anything. I’m hearing stories that are horror shows where department stores are half empty and they don’t have product?. Nobody has ever had anything like this. I’ve never seen anything like what’s going on with the shipping of goods.”
He also noted that he and Chinese Communist Party dictator Xi Jinping never had to discuss supply chain shortages and other serious issues because such matters were simply unthinkable just a short time ago before Biden messed things up for America.
He also noted a similar dynamic with other world leaders such as Russia’s Vladimir Putin and the Iranians as well, where America’s adversaries now seem emboldened by that Biden weakness he described earlier in the interview.
