Donald Trump is responding to yet another failed witch hunt. On Monday, the 45th President of the United States responded to the partisan January 6 committee’s baseless charges he was at the center of a criminal conspiracy to overthrow the U.S. government.
“Our nation is SUFFERING. Our economy is in the gutter. Inflation is rampant. Gas prices have reached an all-time high. Ships are unable to unload cargo. Families cannot get needed baby formula. We are an embarrassment around the world,” Trump’s statement began.
“Our withdrawal from Afghanistan was a disaster that cost us precious American blood, and gave $85 billion worth of the best military equipment on earth to our enemy,” he went on. “Millions and millions of illegals are marching to the border and invading our country.”
“We have a White House in shambles, with Democrats, just this week, declaring that Biden is unfit to run for reelection,” he continued. “And what is the Democrat Congress focused on? A Kangaroo Court, hoping to distract the American people from the great pain they are experiencing.
“Seventeen months after the events of January 6th, Democrats are unable to offer solutions,” Trump said. “They are desperate to change the narrative of a failing nation, without even making mention of the havoc and death caused by the Radical Left just months earlier.”
“Make no mistake, they control the government,” he went on. “They own this disaster. They are hoping that these hearings will somehow alter their failing prospects. A certain Democrat once said, ‘It’s the economy, stupid.’ Well, Democrats now seem to think that Americans are ‘stupid.’ They are not.”

“America is crumbling, and Democrats have no solutions,” Trump said. “Our nation has no hope of change for the better under Democrat leadership. People are desperate. Rather than solving problems, Democrats are rehashing history in hopes of changing the narrative. During my time in office, our nation was thriving, our economy was strong, and the price of gas was very low. Above all else, we were respected, perhaps like never before. America prospered under the Trump Administration.”
