Instead of attending the debates, Trump’s prerecorded interview with Tucker Carlson revealed what’s on the former president’s mind, including his thoughts on January 6.
Trump on Democrats
The 45th president, who faces four indictments in four states, said, “They’re savage animals. They are people that are sick. Sick. You have great people in the Democrat Party, you have great people that are Democrats.” He added, “But I’ve seen what they do, I’ve seen the lengths that they go to.”
Love and unity
Trump said about his indictments and January 6, “People in that crowd said it was the most beautiful day they’ve ever experienced. There was love in that crowd. There was love and unity.”
And so much passion
The former president and likely GOP nominee for the 2024 elections continued, “I have never seen such spirit and such passion and such love. And I’ve also never seen, simultaneously, and from the same people, such hatred of what they’ve done to our country.”
The biggest crowd
Trump told Carlson, “There’s tremendous passion, and there’s tremendous love. You know, January 6 was a very interesting day because they don’t report it properly. I believe it was the largest crowd I’ve ever spoken to before.”
The interview was posted just before the first GOP primary debate
A few minutes before the first GOP debate, Carlson posted the interview on X, former Twitter. Though it was prerecorded, Trump shared that Christie and “nasty” Hutchinson should not be on the debate stage.
Trump on Fox
The twice-impeached president explained why he decided not to do the first debate, “Do I sit there for an hour or two hours, whatever it’s going to be, and get harassed by people that shouldn’t even be running for president?” He added, “Should I be doing that at a network that isn’t particularly friendly to me?”
The common “enemy”
Carlson, fired by Fox, found comfort in the former president’s words, who said, “I think it was a terrible move getting rid of you.” Trump continued, “You’re No. 1 on television, and all of a sudden we’re doing this interview, but we’ll get bigger ratings doing this crazy forum that you’re using than probably the debate.”
Trump on Christie
“He runs solely on the basis of ‘Let’s get Trump,’” the former president said about the former New Jersey governor. “He’s like a savage maniac. He’s like a lunatic. And that’s all he talks about. His poll numbers are very, very low,” Trump added.
Trump on former AG Bill Barr
Talking to Carlson, Trump shared, “Bill Barr didn’t do an investigation on the election fraud either. He said he did, and he pretended he did.” He added that Barr was “petrified” of being impeached by the House.
Trump on “the most corrupt president” ever
“I think he is the most corrupt president we’ve ever had, and he also has the distinction of being the most incompetent,” Trump said, calling Biden a “Manchurian candidate.” He also stated, ” I think he looks terrible on the beach,” while referring to Biden’s vacation photos.
Trump wants a rematch
Despite losing the 2020 election, Trump said, “In many ways, I’d love to run against him because his record is so bad,” Trump said. “It’s still horrible when you look at inflation and everything else.”
The future debates
What remains unclear is whether Trump will join the second debate. In April, he wrote, “I see that everybody is talking about the Republican Debates, but nobody got my approval, or the approval of the Trump Campaign, before announcing them.”
