Former president says his country is suffering one ‘historic humiliation’ after another
The United States has become “a beggar nation,” former President Donald Trump said during a speech at the America First Policy Institute summit on Tuesday. Marking his first appearance in Washington since leaving office in 2021, Trump criticized Democrats and the Biden administration for bringing the United States “on your knees”.
The former president focused on issues such as inflation, which is at a 49-year high of 9.1%, record gasoline prices and soaring crime rates. He also lamented that the United States had lost its energy independence and was now ” crawl “ to other countries, apparently referring to President Joe Biden’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia.
On July 15, Biden spoke with Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman to try to persuade the Middle Eastern leader to increase his country’s oil production and reduce the world’s dependence on supplies from from Russia.
“Our country is suffering one historic humiliation after another on the world stage,” said Trump. During this time, the “the most basic rights and freedoms” are “under seat” at home, like “millions of illegal aliens” are pouring into the country and murder rates are skyrocketing in Democratic-run cities, he added.
Trump delivered his speech ahead of the upcoming midterm elections and expressed hope that the American people would reject the “Failed reign of Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and the radical left.” The former president proclaimed that the Republican Party is ready to achieve a “triumphal victory” in the next presidential election.
He has yet to officially announce his candidacy for the US presidency in 2024, however, he has repeatedly hinted at his intention to seek another term in the White House, insisting he has already won the race and that he could start again.
