(Sep. 5, 2022) – At approximately 9:00 p.m. EDT Monday evening, 45th President Donald J. Trump posted on his TruthSocial account a new video appearing in black and white titled, “A Nation in Decline.”
Just under four minutes in length, the video begins against an ominous backdrop of a thunderstorm segued by Trump stating from a podium, “We are a nation in decline. We are a failing nation. We are a nation that has the highest inflation in over 40 years…”
He went on to decry the Biden regime’s chaotic and deadly exit from Afghanistan just over a year ago along with its abandonment of $85 billion dollars’-worth of U.S. military equipment; the emergence of the war between Ukraine and Russia; what he sees as the proliferation of “fake news;” supply-chain difficulties and empty store shelves; and Biden’s intention to resuscitate the Obama regime’s nuclear agreement with Iran which Trump had canceled once in office.
“We are a nation that in many ways has become a joke,” he punctuated the first somber two minutes.
“But soon we will have greatness again,” he said (2:43), his voice lifting as the background music brightened and video of rally attendees rolled in full color, with Trump appearing on-stage in a navy-blue suit and classic red tie.
As he has said in earlier statements, the presentation concluded with, “…the best is yet to come.”
The video followed several remarks Trump issued earlier on Monday accusing the FBI of having altered what he believes the outcome of the 2020 election would have been had the agency not delayed its investigation into the laptop computer belonging to Joe Biden’s son Hunter. The purposeful delay, Trump said, shows evidence of an “Election Rigging Scam,” prompting him to ask, “Are they going to change the results of the 2020 Presidential Election?” and answer, “They should!!!”
Since the day after the election, Trump has claimed he won, with the mainstream media pushing hard to convince the public that Biden won in what Biden has said was a “free and fair election.”
It is widely expected Trump plans to again seek the presidency, with the possibility of a formal announcement timed for after the November 8, 2022 midterm elections.
