Trump thinks that there will be nothing left of the United States in three years time
Former President Donald Trump has not only teased a 2024 presidential campaign run, but he also seems to have a new and bizarre theory that the United States will be no more in three years time.
And without missing a beat, he brought up false claims again that the 2020 presidential election was rigged.
“The people of our country respect us, they love our country, and they want to see our country succeed,” Trump told Spicer before adding that the “country has gone really downhill in the last eight months like nobody’s ever seen before” without having substantial proof that this is the fate of the country.
“And you go to these elections that are coming in ‘22 and ‘24; we’re not going to have a country left. The election was rigged, and we’re not going to have a country left in three years,” he continued.
Spicer then seemed to want to end the interview, which may have something to do with the $1.6 billion lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems over the widespread claim that the 2020 presidential election was rigged and defaming the voting machine company.

However, he did have a final question for Trump. Noting that he has decided to run in the 2024 run for the presidency and how his supporters would be thrilled by it, Spicer asked him when he would announce his plans.
“I will probably not comment on that, but I will tell you will be very happy,” Trump responded before adding that the United States is now “a laughingstock.”

People in the video comments couldn’t help but poke fun at Trump’s sentiments.
“How do you campaign and ask people to come out and vote, at the same time that you tell them that as president you couldn’t protect their vote and had the election stolen from you?” someone wrote.
“When he says, ‘We won’t have a country anymore,’ who is the ‘we?’” another added.
Someone else simply called him out for being a sore loser and wrote, “The election was NOT rigged. He’s such a sore loser.”

The more he talks- The more I know I made the right decision https://t.co/GZy6gY0vBv— Yves Knowles (@KnowlesYves) September 14, 2021
I don't think "bleak" is the word. It's going to be incredibly dangerous and destructive as he tries to goad his base on to overthrow the republic. His "campaign" will just give him a bigger platform and more access to the media. https://t.co/VEo6DjQ8be— Kenneth Tyler (@LaOndaBaja) September 14, 2021
