Former President Donald Trump claimed Tuesday that the United States will come to an end in the next three years, without explaining what that might mean in practice.
Trump predicts America will cease to exist in three years in rambling interview on Newsmax
America “has really gone downhill in the last eight months like nobody has ever seen before,” Trump said during an appearance on Sean Spicer’s show on the conservative Newsmax news channel.
“If we go into this election coming up on the 22nd and 24th, we won’t have a country left,” he said falsely claiming that the 2020 election, “was rigged” and that “we’re not going to have a country in three years.”
Immediately following this claim, Spicer, who served as the former president’s press secretary, was quick to end the interview with, “You’ve been very generous with your time, thank you for that.”
Newsmax is facing a $1.6 million defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems for allegedly spreading misinformation about the company’s voting machine fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
In recent months, Trump has aggressively criticized President Joe Biden for withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan. On Tuesday, he continued to attack Biden.
“He was going to be the great unifier … He’s not a unifier, he’s the opposite, he’s worse than Obama. Of course, Obama is probably running the government now, according to a lot of people,” Trump said.
According to reports, Trump is aiming to run for president again in 2024.
Despite not making a formal announcement, he has kept the door open for a presidential run through crowdfunding, rallies and has repeatedly hinted that the only reason he is not announcing is because of campaign finance rules.
