Former President Donald Trump appeared on Stuart Varney’s show on Fox on Friday to discuss the Biden administration, which he called a “disaster.”
Trump claimed that Biden is not giving the American people what he bargained for.
He also called for inflation and said that ‘Americans have it completely right’ to believe that price hikes have to do with Biden’s policies.
‘Americans have it completely right. And frankly, the pandemic – if you think about it – probably brings it down because you can’t really run your economy to that extent, and so, you’re using less.
‘I think the pandemic can certainly bring down inflation as opposed to raising it. I saw him make that statement, and it is just another false statement.
Sixty-seven percent of voters claim Biden’s policies are causing inflation, Fox Business informed of.
He also slammed Biden for the supply chain crisis, saying the ‘word’ had never been heard for his presidency.
‘We hadn’t even heard the term supply chain when I was president. It was not even something that I could remember even after hearing it.
Trump – who famously wanted to build a wall around the US southern border – also attacked the Biden administration for the crisis, calling it a ‘disgrace’.
“It’s not what people bargained for. He lied about the whole matter. He lied. There was never anything like this, this is not representative government,’ he said.
Despite disagreeing with the vaccine mandate, Trump discontinued the vaccine, saying, ‘I took the vaccine, I was proud to do it.’ He also reminded the public that he ‘saved millions’ by developing the vaccine so quickly.
He reminded the public that people who get vaccinated, even if they become infected with COVID-19, are less likely to be hospitalized or face death.
Despite vaccine hesitation among the Republican Party, Trump continued to plug the vaccine developed by his administration in record time and distributed to the public several times during his appearance on the show.
The former president claimed he wanted ‘people to go out to get it’ but did not want to ‘force it on them’.
‘I do not like’ [vaccine mandates]’But look, I took them, I took the vaccine, I was proud to do it,’ he said. ‘ Somebody said: “Oh, sir, maybe it’s a bit controversial, don’t mention it.” It’s the exact opposite. I am very proud.’
Trump made sure to mention that his administration only took ‘nine months’ to develop a vaccine, which should not have been ‘possible in five years’.
,[Dr. Anthony] Fauci said it would take more than five years and who knows if it’s going to work and it works really well. And the people who get it don’t end up going to the hospital and they don’t die.’
The former president claimed that he saved “millions of people around the world” with vaccines.
Trump also spoke of his disdain for vaccine passes, such as New York City, which requires citizens to show proof of vaccination to perform certain activities, are ‘crazy’ and said that people who have recovered from the virus They are ‘abused’.
He suggested giving a ‘card out’ to people who have the virus so they can go out and do activities because patients are ‘not going to have it or for the most part it will be again, very mild.’
Trump rebukes Biden for high energy costs – such as gas costing as high as $7.77 in parts of California – for high inflation
Trump said Biden’s mandate led to a supply chain crisis and “what’s happening” is people “quitting their jobs.”
He also blamed the vaccine mandate for the lack of police and commented that it was worse in ‘democratic areas’.
‘What they have done is a lot of mandates’ [that] causing supply chain problems. That way, I guess you can say what’s happening is that people everywhere are leaving their jobs,’ he said.
‘You see the police in New York, you see the police everywhere they refuse to go – in democratic areas, I must say – that’s where the crime is and that’s where the police departments are going. are destroyed by the mandate.
‘It’s a terrible job they’re doing, I must say.’
The former president also brought up energy prices and how the US is no longer ‘energy free’ as he was when he left office, he claimed. He also said that the US is now ‘begging for oil’.
Trump claimed the ‘word’ supply chain never existed during his presidency and was never briefed on it, yet it is a big factor in Biden’s presidency
‘We were energy independent – in fact, I found prices for gasoline so low, I was down to $1.78 and I gave up on about $1.86 a gallon. And I was really worried about the industry, I had to step it up a little bit,’ he said.
‘We were bigger than Saudi Arabia or Russia and we were energy independent and within a year, I would have been bigger than Saudi Arabia and Russia combined.’
He also commented that much of the energy is due to inflation and that the reason gas prices are so high is that Biden is ‘nervous.’
‘It’s because he’s nervous. No one has ever seen what is happening with energy. In California, it’s $7.77 in some areas of California and it follows those numbers.’
‘I could solve inflation very quickly.’
Trump strongly disagreed with Biden’s proposed plan to pay illegal immigrants isolated during the Trump administration, while Americans still ‘live on the streets of San Francisco and New York’
Many immigrants were moving to the US in search of a new life, while many were moving to Texas
Trump’s biggest complaint with the border crisis was that Americans were being left out.
Trump said he has a problem with offering money to illegal immigrants while US citizens continue to live on the streets.
‘What about our veterinarians who live on the streets and what about our people who have to live on the streets of San Francisco and New York and everywhere they get nothing.
‘They get $450,000 for coming into our country illegally.’
Biden had proposed a plan to pay illegal immigrants who were segregated during the Trump administration, up to $450,000 per person.
Biden later denied that he was going to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to immigrants. It is unknown whether immigrants will receive any funding.
