President Donald Trump issued a dire warning.
“Our country has gone really downhill in the last eight months, like nobody’s ever seen before,” Trump said to Newsmax host Sean Spicer and co-host Lyndsay Keith.
“And you go to these elections that are coming up in ’22 and ’24, we’re not going to have a country left in three years, I’ll tell you that,” he continued.
Trump was using obvious hyperbole to explain how badly the country is suffering under the Biden administration.
Trump previously called on Biden to resign from office “in disgrace.”
“What Joe Biden has done with Afghanistan is legendary,” Trump said. “It will go down as one of the greatest defeats in American history.”
“It is time for Joe Biden to resign in disgrace for what he has allowed to happen to Afghanistan, along with the tremendous surge in COVID, the Border catastrophe, the destruction of energy independence, and our crippled economy,” Trump said.
Liberals were immediately triggered by Trump’s comment that “we’re not going to have a country left in three years.”
A writer from The Huffington Post said, “Donald Trump is predicting America will end in three years and is also hinting that he may run for office in 2024 ― three years from now.”

Although this remark was hyperbole, sadly, there is a lot of truth in it. By nearly every metric, the U.S. is worse off than the country was when President Joe Biden took office.
The dual crises at our southwest border and in Afghanistan now threaten our national security.
This administration’s massive spending has driven our national debt up to unsustainable levels and ignited inflation.
But neither the rising inflation rate nor the debt seems to bother Biden or top Democrats. They’re still trying to ram through a $3.5 trillion “human infrastructure” bill. Thanks to Sen. Joe Manchin, the West Virginia Democrat, the final legislation could be whittled down to $1.5-$2 trillion, which is still excessive and inflationary, but obviously an improvement.AdvertisementAdvertisement

Passage of this bill will also create new entitlements which, once implemented, are not easy to reverse.
Under Trump, the U.S. had achieved energy independence. By contrast, Biden has declared war on the fossil fuel industry that has inevitably contributed to rising gasoline prices. Inflated prices at the pump have the same effect as a tax on individuals and hits lower and middle-income wage earners the hardest.
Since Biden took office, inflation has been skyrocketing and Americans have been struggling to afford the basic necessities.
“I know many Americans are still struggling to make it through each and every day,” Biden said.
“For too many, it’s harder and harder to pay the bills, food, gas, rent, health care,” he added.
Inflation has hit record-setting rates in July and June, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The consumer price index rose a seasonally adjusted 0.3 percent from August to July.
This was followed by a 0.5 percent increase in July and a 0.9 percent increase in June.
In the past two months of August and September, inflation is still rising, but at a slower pace than the previous record-setting months.
Grocery giant Kroger Co. said it expects prices to continue to increase another 2 to 3 percent by the end of the year, according to Fox News.
This is occurring because companies like Kroger are incurring higher costs themselves and they are “passing along higher cost to the customer where it makes sense to do so,” according to Kroger CEO Gary Millerchip.
The Biden administration refuses to take any responsibility and instead blames capitalism.
The Biden admin says supply-chain disruptions due to COVID-19 and a lack of competition in meat processing have caused the increases.
