On Friday, former President Donald Trump attacked Democrats for worrying more about fighting Republicans rather than improving the country.
“The Democrat politicians of this Country spend 99% of their time fighting Republicans and no time thinking about making our Country great,” Trump said in a statement released by his Save America PAC and tweeted by spokesperson Liz Harrington.

“If they would spend half of that energy fighting China, Russia, Iran and even the European Union, where the U.S. just dropped all tariffs, we would go back to greatness again. Instead, they are weak with everybody except conservatives. Our Country has become the laughingstock of the world!”
Trump’s latest statements follow an interview by Chris Stigall on Thursday. On that occasion, the former president described how things would have been different if he was still in the White House.
“If the election weren’t rigged and if I were there,” Trump said, “you wouldn’t have inflation, your gas prices would be less than $2, your economy would be roaring, we’d be respected by the world, we would’ve been out of Afghanistan and we wouldn’t have left, we wouldn’t have left $85 Billion, billion with a ‘B’, of equipment behind, we wouldn’t have 13 dead soldiers.”
Then he mentioned reports about how the Biden administration might pay $450,000 per person to separate migrant families under Trump’s Trump administration.
“These people are absolutely crazy, crazy,” he said. “Our country can’t sustain this.”
Trump also warned that Chinese President Xi Jinping will wait until after the Beijing Winter Olympics to increase threats on Taiwan.
Stigall asked the ex-president about COVID-19 vaccines and whether vaccinations should be given to children.
“I don’t think so,” he said. “They’re strong, their immune systems are strong, they’re not affected, like, especially older people that have some kind of a problem, whether it be diabetes or something. Those people I strongly recommend [getting vaccinated].”
Trump also claimed some credit for Glenn Youngkin (R-Va.), defeating the former Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D-Va.) in the gubernatorial election.
“If [Youngkin] lost, they were going to blame me, and if he won, they’d say I did nothing,” Trump said.
“Without [my] endorsement, I will tell you, he would have received hundreds of thousands of fewer votes.”
