Former President Donald Trump showed up on Fox News Monday evening for an interview with the always servile Sean Hannity, and he demanded that Republicans embrace the very issues and agenda that were responsible for him losing to President Joe Biden in a humiliating landslide last November.
In typical softball fashion, Hannity asked Trump:
“Should this now be the Republican Party agenda? Should anybody that wants to run for the House or the Senate — should they take this ‘Make America Great’ agenda and fight for those things that you fought for the four years you were president?”
“If they want to win, yes. We’ve expanded the Republican Party. If you want to win and win big, you have to do that.”
Really? How did that work for Republicans in 2020? They lost the White House, no longer control the Senate, and are also the minority party in the House. And they were running on Trump’s so-called “accomplishments.” But American voters rejected Trump and the GOP.
Trump also took time to suggest that if the Biden administration doesn’t follow his crackdown on immigration, it will be the end of the United States:
“They’re playing it down as much as they can play it down. It’s a horrible situation, could destroy our country. People are pouring in. But you’ll see something as the months go by like you’ve never seen before. Already it’s like you’ve never seen before. There’s never been anything like what’s happened at our border.”
Destroy the country? That’s exactly what Trump nearly did during his four years in office. He failed to control the biggest crisis this country has faced in decades: The coronavirus pandemic, which has killed over 567,000 Americans, the vast majority of whom perished while Trump was in the White House.
Donald Trump was a failure as president. He was a failure as a businessman. Why in the world would anyone listen to a word he has to say or follow his advice?
