You may not like Donald Trump and the mean tweets he sent when he was President and I guess that is fine. Yet I believe what he says here 100% in regards to why he is weighing in as a former President just months out of office. He believes to his core that Biden and his ilk are going to destroy this country and as a former President, he needs to speak up.


Now, I know there will be some eye-rolling here, not just from the lefties who still think Abbey Hoffman was a visionary but also from the truuuuuuu conservatives who thought Trump was evil and would never leave the office. I know who you are and you can just take a breather here and sit this one out. I don’t want your fragile nervous systems to have to endure any more trauma in such a short amount of time.

As I wrote in my VIP piece yesterday Joe Biden Had a Really Bad, 7-Day Stretch Last Week, and More of That Is Coming, there are a number of reasons any Americans should be concerned. One of them is China and how they are acting towards Joe Weak Knees Biden. Here is an excerpt from where the Chinese representatives slapped our Secretary State so hard in Alaska publicly, it woke Joe up from his nap back in D.C.

On human rights, we hope that the United States will do better on human rights. China has made steady progress in human rights, and the fact is that there are many problems within the United States regarding human rights…. And the challenges facing the United States in human rights are deep-seated. They did not just emerge over the past four years, such as Black Lives Matter. It did not come up only recently.

Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo would have never sat quietly for that, but the Biden team did. This is why I’m glad that Don #45 is willing to jump back into the game. Here is what he had to say with Harris Faulkner via Fox News earlier today.


Harris asked why he is weighing in unlike some other former Presidents have in the past and here was President Trumps’ answer…

“The reason I weigh-in is very simple,” Trump said, “they’re destroying our country. Very simple. It can’t get simpler than that. They are destroying our country. And they’re going to destroy it with tax increases the likes of which nobody has ever seen before in order to accomplish the ‘Green New Deal’ nonsense. They’re destroying it with woke – when China looks at woke they see the biggest problem we have is Dr. Seuss. In the meantime, they’re building factories and trying to kill us in so many different ways.”

I know last week that Joe was told to get lippy with Vladimir Putin and that is all well and fine. The Chinese are the real threat to the whole global landscape and Donald Trump understood that in a way that most of the collected elected officials over the past 20 years just could never grasp. That he is speaking out about how the Biden team has come out the gate with China is critically important. Waiting around and saying “aww shucks” for the next 3 1/2 years just won’t cut it and pressure needs to be applied now.

That is what the former President is doing and I’m glad he is.


I know some might want the good ole days of where a President rides off into the sunset and is never heard from again. I know I would be in that camp normally, being the vast majority of them are a big reason we are in the mess we are in today. We don’t have the luxury of time, though.

The country needs to kick it into another gear and Donald Trump is that gear. As I said earlier, you may not have liked his style but it is really preferred to Biden’s policies. On almost all the big issues critical to the United States today the Biden approach is horrible for the country.

That is why we are lucky that Donald Trump is speaking out as he is.
