Donald Trump went on Maria Bartiromo’s Fox News show in what was another pathetic attempt to get the country to give him credit for coronavirus metrics finally improving in the United States. People have been asking the former president to encourage his followers to get the vaccine, which he finally did during this interview. But Trump added that “we have our freedoms, and we have to live by that. And I agree with that also.” Trump went on to repeat the claim that if it wasn’t for him, it would have taken five years to get a coronavirus vaccine developed, something that is laughably untrue when considering drug companies in the US and around the world were able to do it without him.
He also decided to relitigate the results of the 2020 election, saying “our Supreme Court and our courts didn't have the courage to overturn elections” and claimed he won by “hundreds of thousands and even millions of votes.” Bartiromo was desperate to get Trump off of this topic, possibly because she was trying to avoid a lawsuit against the network. Trump went on to criticize Biden’s immigration policy and repeated the claim that the border wall was nearly completed before the new administration took over. He also weighed in on the Meghan Merkel controversy, taking the side of the British monarchy. While the interview appearances have slowed down since Trump left office, they have remained just as inane and lie-riddled.
The David Pakman Show is a news and political talk program, known for its controversial interviews with political and religious extremists, liberal and conservative politicians, and other guests.
