Florida.– Former US President Donald Trump said that if he were to return to the White House, his first actions would be to “seal the border and stop crime.”
Trump gave the statements Monday night to the Fox News network aboard his plane in an interview that the network published this Tuesday during the day of the mid-term elections in which the House of Representatives is renewed, a third of the Congress and 36 Governorships.
The former president foresees a big announcement on November 15, in what could be the formalization of his presidential candidacy for the 2024 elections. In the interview with Fox News, he said that he planned it for that date so as not to distract voters: ” I didn’t want to interfere.”
He also assured that if he returned to the White House he would launch an “America First” agenda that would be invincible and would not depend on Washington politicians.
In the event that the Republican Party wins the lower House, as the polls predict, Trump said that he would seek the current Republican minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, to become the president of the House of Representatives, a position currently held by the Democrat. Nancy Pelosi.
Since he lost the presidential election to Joe Biden in 2020, names have emerged in the Republican Party that could challenge him for the nomination, including the Governors of Texas and Florida, Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis, respectively. The Floridian is the one who seems to have the greatest acceptance and Trump said this morning that he had voted for him for re-election because he lives in that state.
In the interview, the tycoon assured that he had no problem with DeSantis, as reports have suggested.
“There’s no fight with me, and I’m way up in the polls,” Trump said when asked by Fox.
“I don’t know if he’s going to participate. I think if he participates, he could get hurt a lot. I really think he could get hurt a lot (…). I think he’d be making a mistake, I think the base wouldn’t like it, I don’t think it’s good for the game”.
