Donald Trump revealed his plan for “ultimate retribution” after the Biden administration while at a Fox News town hall in Iowa on Wednesday night.
“We are run by fools,” Trump said. “We’re run by stupid people. But we ran it very smart for four years and we won everything. We won everything.”
“Mr. President, you’re talking a lot about policy,” Baier began. “You get questions about what a second term’s going to look like when you’re in your rallies. You spend a lot of time talking about retribution, and so there are questions about how much a second term of a Donald Trump presidency, a second term, would be about retribution and looking backwards in grievances and how much would be looking forward?”
“Well, first of all, a lot of people would say that that’s not so bad,” Trump replied. “Look what they did. Russia, Russia, Russia hoax, the FBI Twitter hoax, the 51 intelligence agents hoax. All of these different hoaxes that they did. I mean, a lot of people would say, that’s probably quite normal.”
“I’m not going to have time for retribution,” he continued. “We’re going to make this country so successful. Again, I’m not going to have time for retribution. And remember this, our ultimate retribution is success.”
“When we had, just prior to the China virus coming in, if you don’t mind, I’d like to be accurate as opposed to Covid,” he added. “It is the China virus. It came out of Wuhan, and I said a long time ago in your show it came out of Wuhan. They were saying it came out of caves, bat caves, 2000 miles away. It came out of Italy. It came out of France. No, it came out of Wuhan. The labs. And by the way, I don’t think it was done. I think it was done out of incompetence. That’s what I think. I believe that the scientists went out, said hello to his girlfriend, and that was the end of that. She died and then people started dying all over the place. But who knows? Who knows?”
“I can tell you one thing, I got along with President Xi, but I took in 400 billion in tariffs and taxes from China, and one of the reasons China’s not doing so well today is because of those tariffs and Biden wants to cut ’em,” he went on. “He got paid off by China after all. So he wants to help the people that gave him a lot of money, but he is a Manchurian candidate in a true sense. He got money from China, he got money from Russia.”
“You remember the debate where Chris Wallace, how is he doing?” Trump remarked. “I wonder, but Chris Wallace, one, I said to Biden, I asked him a question. I said, how come you got three and a half million dollars from the mayor of Moscow’s wife? And Chris Wallace wouldn’t let me ask me. I said, why are you stopping this now? It’s turned out to be a big deal. He got three and a half million dollars from the mayor of Moscow’s wife.”
“I tell you this, we’re going to have a success,” Trump added. “That’s so great that I won’t have, hopefully I won’t have time for retribution. There won’t be retribution. There’ll be success.”
It is truly remarkable that one of the most persecuted men in U.S. history can remain so optimistic about America’s future. It is quite the contrast with the dark manner that Trump is painted in most of the major news media.
