Donald Trump has never had much trouble speaking his mind, that’s for sure, and his role as the presumptive 2024 GOP nominee has given him free range to do just that.
Trump’s election in 2016 saw the NYC business mogul sent to Washington DC as a “disruptor” of sorts. He was explicitly tasked with smashing the status quo to smithereens, and the MAGA Movement demanded that he pull no punches in the matter either.
Now, as he awaits some competition in the 2024 race, Trump is again taking his role as the bombastic former President ever -more seriously during his Christmas address to the nation.
“On this very cold but beautiful Christmas Day, look at our Nation NOW on the Southern Border compared to only a short time ago during the Trump Administration,” wrote Mr Trump.
“We had the most SECURE Border in our history, versus the “horror show” that that is happening now, with record setting numbers of people, many of them hardened Criminals (including Killers, Human Traffickers and Drug Dealers), POURING INTO OUR COUNTRY at a rate the likes of which we have never seen before. The USA is dying from within!!!” he declared.
But the former president wasn’t done there. He went on to post a second angry screed minutes later, which concluded: “TODAY, LIKE NEVER BEFORE, WE ARE A NATION IN DECLINE, A FAILING NATION!”
The address was certainly somewhat alarming, but comes at a time in which Donald Trump’s political and legal troubles are multiplying.
