2024 was proclaimed by former President Donald Trump to be the “final battle” against a number of forces afflicting the United States.
In reiterating a prior declaration, President Trump escalated the rhetorical significance to its utmost extent, even asserting that a loss in the 2024 election would result in the demise of the nation.
During a campaign event in Iowa, former President Trump expressed his belief that the 2024 election, in which the next president is decided, will hold significant importance for the United States, referring to it as a pivotal moment akin to a “final battle.”
Trump proclaimed that the year 2024 “is our final battle. With you at my side, we will demolish the deep state. We will expel the warmongers from our government. They want to go to war with everybody. We will drive out the globalists, we will cast out the communist Marxists and fascists, and we will throw off the sick political class that truly hates our country. We will route the fake news media. We will defeat crooked Joe Biden, and we will end illegal immigration once and for all, just as we had it three years ago.”
“The great silent majority is rising like never before,” he declared. “And under our leadership, the forgotten man and woman will be forgotten no longer with your help, your love, and your vote. We will put America first, and we will make America great again, greater than ever before.”
“We are going to make this country stronger and better and more beautiful than ever before,” he promised. “Not just get it back. We’re going to make it better than ever before, but we have to win this election.”
According to his statement, Trump expressed that the failure to secure the presidency in 2024 would result in a total loss of everything.
“I hope we have a victory because if we don’t have a victory, I really think this country is… finished. It’s finished. I really think it’s finished… That’s how bad it is,” Trump said, declaring the severity of the situation.
Conversely, a triumph in the year 2024 would be “the victory for the ages, it’s going to be a victory for the ages. … You know, I used to talk about 2016, that 2016 is the biggest election of our lifetime. And I meant it 100%.” Trump expressed his whole sincerity, albeit acknowledging that the statement was not applicable to the year 2020 due to the his efforts in ameliorating the circumstances.
Trump asserted that the “MAGA” effort is the “greatest movement of all time.”
Late on Wednesday, after his rally, Trump posted to Truth Social:
“A very important deadline is approaching at the end of the month. Republicans in Congress can and must defund all aspects of Crooked Joe Biden’s weaponized Government that refuses to close the Border, and treats half the Country as Enemies of the State. This is also the last chance to defund these political prosecutions against me and other Patriots. They failed on the debt limit, but they must not fail now. Use the power of the purse and defend the Country!”
Trump then ripped Charles Koch who has vowed to spend $70 million to stop him from becoming president again.
“Very stupid, awkward, and highly overrated Globalist Charles Koch of the Koch Network doesn’t have a clue. He said his best years were the four years during the Trump Administration, and now his people are aimlessly throwing away other people’s money. Watch what happens to Charles Koch!”
Early Thursday morning, Trump began with a shot at Fox News.
“Why won’t Fox (Fox & Friends!) show the National Poll that THEY just did. They refuse to put it up, even after spending all of that money. SHOW THE POLL!!! If they don’t show it, I’ll put it up later!”
Over the weekend, NBC reported what it believed were some of the top moments of Trump’s interview with Kristen Welker, the newly appointed host of Meet the Press, from his stand on abortion, to his declaring that he’s not afraid of going to prison:
“Trump said members of his own party “speak very inarticulately” about abortion, and he criticized those who push for abortion bans without exceptions in cases of rape and incest, and to protect the health of the mother.
“I watch some of them without the exceptions, et cetera, et cetera,” he said. “I said, ‘Other than certain parts of the country, you can’t — you’re not going to win on this issue. But you will win on this issue when you come up with the right number of weeks,”” according to the outlet.
While Trump passed on the chance to clarify what kind of legislation he would sign to ban abortion after a certain number of weeks — or if he prefers the issue be solved at the federal level rather than on a state-by-state basis — he repeatedly sought to portray himself as a dealmaker who could unite “both sides” and put the issue to rest.
“We’re going to agree to a number of weeks or months or however you want to define it,” Trump said. “And both sides are going to come together and both sides — both sides, and this is a big statement — both sides will come together. And for the first time in 52 years, you’ll have an issue that we can put behind us.”
NBC added, “Despite facing four trials, Trump told Welker that he’s not consumed with visions of prison.”
“I don’t even think about it,” Trump said. “I’m built a little differently I guess, because I have had people come up to me and say, ‘How do you do it, sir? How do you do it?’ I don’t even think about it.”
But he also came back to the question on his own accord later in the interview, suggesting it stuck with him.
“When you say, do I lose sleep? I sleep,” he said. “I sleep. Because I truly feel that, in the end, we’re going to win.”
