At his rally in South Carolina, former President Donald Trump tore into President Joe Biden, calling him a “disaster” and his administration a “train wreck.”

“Eight months from now, the people of South Carolina are going to vote to fire the radical Democrats,” he said on Saturday as the crowd chanted ‘We love Trump.’ “You’re going to elect an incredible slate of true America First Republicans. You’re going to reelect your Gov. Henry McMaster, and together we’re going to end Nancy Pelosi’s political career once and for all.

“The past year we’ve watched in horror as everything Joe Biden touches turns into a calamity and a total disaster. It’s one train wreck after another,” he said.

“He disgraced our nation with a humiliating surrender in Afghanistan; there has never been a lower point in the history of our country,” the 45th President of the United States said.

“We had peace through strength,” he said. “That’s what it was. Our country was safe and the world was calm because America was strong, and they respected our leadership.


“And America was always a place that I put before everybody else. It was always America first. Very simple,” he said.

He took a swipe at the media and blamed them for helping the president get elected.

“The fake news said my personality would get us into a war: ‘I’m telling you, that guy is going to get us into a war,'” the former president said. “But, actually, my personality is what kept us out of war. I was the only president in nearly four decades who did not get America into any new conflicts instead.

“I brought our troops and our wonderful children back home. I brought them back home where they belong. Under Joe Biden, America’s neither feared nor respected. There has never been a time where our country has been treated the way it is right now.

“Other countries are lecturing us and telling us what to do, and that’s why we are seeing chaos and mayhem and bloodshed all over the world. Never been a time like it,” he said.

“Well, we need to help stop this brutal invasion,” he said. “We also have to clean out the rot of our failed foreign policy establishment. It is indeed rotten to the core. Before these total lunatics lead us down the path World War III. They will do it too. We have to continue to drain the swamp. We did a lot of it, but the swamp was deep, deeper than anybody believed.

“Despite all of Biden’s weakness, cowardice and incompetence, there is still a path for him to end this tragedy in Ukraine without getting Americans snared in a gruesome and very bloody war,” he said.

In an interview last week he predicted that China would be next to invade Taiwan.


“China is going to make a move — and a very strong move — on Taiwan,” he said. “I would say sooner rather than later. Now the Olympics — I would say after the Olympics — now that the Olympics is over, they see what fools we made of ourselves in getting out of Afghanistan and the way they got out. I got it down to 2,000 soldiers and the rest was easy. There’s never been anything so mishandled, so bungled, so incompetent. I think actually a big reason why the problem you have with Ukraine — I think when Putin and when Xi and when Kim Jong-un and when the Iranians are watching that, the Iranian leaders, I think they saw what happened in Afghanistan — and I think that gave them a new sense of power and dignity.”

The former president also said that the Republicans have to save the nation from the disasters that President Biden and the Democrats have created.

“When you talk inflation, when talk the border, when you talk about the wall, all of these things — the wall could have been finished in three weeks,” he said.

“It had such an impact because we built 500 miles of wall and we had the best numbers on the border we’ve ever had, and the drug numbers were the lowest we’ve ever recorded. They’ve been recording them for a long time, but we were stopping the drug traffic to a large extent. We’ve never had a southern border as good, and now it’s the worst it’s ever been,” Trump added.

“Whether it’s human trafficking, whether it’s drugs, whether it’s people coming across, it’s by far the worst it’s ever been. Every single thing we have is in bad shape. The military has become woke — we have great generals, but not the guys you see on television that took out ISIS, 100 percent of the ISIS caliphate — we got Al-Baghdadi. Nobody has done the job we had done, and now every single thing — inflating is totally self-inflicted,” he said.

“I think inflation is largely because of the energy. It’s gone up so much that the bacon goes up with it. Every single thing you do, whether it’s the trucks or the machines you use to make a product or whatever it may be — the planes that fly it to a destination — everything is related to energy. It’s so bad. Energy has doubled and tripled — and it’s going to be tripled and quadrupled,” he said.
