Donald Trump took aim at President Joe Biden, Hunter Biden. US foreign policy and undocumented immigrants on Saturday. As he launched his bid to return to the White House with campaign stops in New Hampshire and South Carolina.
Trump, who is trying to become the first president. Elected to an unbroken term since Grover Cleveland. Has put himself in the Republican best position to win the nomination and defeat Biden.
“The 2024 election is a shot at saving our country
. And we need a leader who is ready to do it on day one,” Trump told an audience at the South Carolina State House. “We need a president who can take the whole system and a president who can win.”
In a series of recent polls, Trump leads Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — the clear No. 2 choice of GOP voters in this primary — by 19 points or more. But there are signs that Trump’s support is waning in some parts of the country. A University of New Hampshire poll released this week. Found DeSantis leading Trump 42 percent to 30 percent. New Hampshire holds the nation’s first primary following the Iowa caucuses.
In South Carolina, Trump was surrounded by Republican officials. Including Gov. Henry McMaster, Sen. Lindsey Graham and Rep. Joe Wilson.
In a pair of speeches on Saturday, which mirrored each other. Trump painted a bleak picture of America under Biden. And promised to reverse inflation, secure the US border.
With Mexico and strengthen America’s position as a world power.
“Through weakness and incompetence, Joe Biden has brought us to the brink of World War III,” Trump said. “We are on the brink of World War III, if no one knows it. As president, I will restore peace through force.”
He called Biden’s foolish American. Withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021 “the lowest day in our country’s history.” And claimed that if he were president. “There would be a peace deal within 24 hours” to end Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
He blamed Biden for border crossings and drug deaths. Repeating his 2015 claim that Mexico was sending. “Murderers,” “assassins” and “rapists” to the United States.
“They’re sending people who are murderers, murderers, they’re sending rapists. And they’re sending, , terrorists or terrorists coming. On their own, and we can’t let that happen,” Trump said.
And, at a time when conservative activists are trying to rewrite school curricula. Trump has promised to cut off federal funding for schools that don’t align. With his views on education and allow parents to elect public school principals.
At both stops, Trump singled out the president’s son Hunter.
Biden for ridicule and blamed the elder Biden for his adult child’s problems.
“At what point does dad get angry—like this kid isn’t doing well for me?” Trump asked in New Hampshire.
Saturday was the campaign stop since Trump kicked. Off his campaign at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida in November. He said he would make sweeping changes to US immigration. Economic and energy policy if he returned to the White House.
“We’ll turn it around and we’ll turn it around fast,” he said.
