A video highlighting the accuracy of some of President Donald J. Trump’s previous predictions for what a Joe Biden presidency might look like has been making the rounds on social media, drawing the attention of the 45th president himself.
Trump shared the video, which splices together clips of him making those predictions with remarks Biden gave last July, on his Truth Social account Monday.
“There was a lot of folks out there – a lot of folks out there making some pretty bold predictions about how things would turn out,” Biden says at the beginning of the video. “You might remember some of the predictions.”
The video then cuts to President Trump, who forecasts: “They’re coming for your guns, they’re coming for your jobs, and they’re coming for your freedom. They hate American energy, and Joe Biden will shut it all down – he’s going to.”
Other Trump predictions featured in the video include gas prices reaching “$5, $6, $7 per gallon,” communities being overrun by “criminal aliens, drugs, and crime,” the government spending “trillions of dollars rebuilding foreign nations, fighting foreign wars, and defending foreign borders,” and an economic downturn resulting in a recession or depression.
These predictions have largely been correct.
Earlier this month, ABC News reported that the national average price of gas per gallon hit $5 for the first time ever. Meanwhile, as the crisis at the southern border continues to overwhelm border patrol agents, Congress is sending billions of dollars to Ukraine to defend its borders against Russia.
Further, as Fox News reports that homicide rates are on the rise in five major cities around the country, Congress is currently working to pass legislation that would place additional restrictions on the rights of law-abiding citizens to purchase guns.
And with inflation continuing to rise, Fortune reported Monday that Goldman Sachs had updated its economic forecast, reporting that the chance of a recession occurring within the next year is now 30 percent, which is twice as likely as the company previously predicted.
But as each of President Trump’s predictions hits its mark, Americans may find a glimmer of hope in the fact that not all of those predictions have been gloomy.
“I ask you to get ready to work, get ready to fight, get ready to win – and win like never before,” the president promised just last month. “Together, we will take back the House, we will take back the Senate and we will take back our country. And then, most importantly, in 2024, we are going to take back our … beautiful White House.”
