Trump Still Claims He "Did Win the Election" In Post-Presidency Interviews

Donald Trump did a round of television interviews for the first time in his post-presidential life. Trump did the right-wing news trifecta, going on Fox News, Newsmax, and OAN throughout the course of the day. The main reason for the appearances was to pay tribute to right-wing talk radio personality Rush Limbaugh, who died yesterday at the age of 70. Trump, on brand, managed to eulogize Rush in a way that made it all about himself. He bragged about the time he gave Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom during the State of the Union. Trump explained how Rush was supposedly deeply upset over the 2020 election being “stolen” from him. The 45th president spoke about his rounds of golf with Rush, which there must have been quite a few of, given the amount of time Trump spent on the golf course as president.

Trump’s interview with Newsmax’s Greg Kelly managed to go beyond Rush Limbaugh’s passing and the news of the day. The ex-president was asked if he’ll be running for president again in 2024, to which he didn’t give a straight answer but instead talked about his approval numbers being high (which they’re not). Trump then criticized Twitter for being boring now that he has been booted off the platform. He also went after Joe Biden and recent comments made by the Biden team about poor vaccine rollout during the previous administration. While Trump managed to stay out of the spotlight during the impeachment process, this may be an indication that he’s ready to stage a political comeback.
