45th President Donald Trump delivered the “real State of the Union” address to the nation shortly after Joe Biden delivered his controversial remarks at the Capitol Building on Tuesday.
Trump, who real-time fact-checked Biden’s State of the Union address via his Truth Social, posted a two-minute clip to his account slamming Biden over his failures from the past two years.
“Look, [Biden] worked hard tonight, it’s not a natural thing for him, it never was, and never will be, but you’ve got to give him credit for trying,” Trump joked in the caption of his post.
“I disagree with him on most of his policies, but he put into words what he felt, and he ended up the evening far stronger than he began. Give him credit for that. Many things weren’t mentioned that should have been, but that’s for another time. I’ve done a little clip, perhaps you’d like to watch it. Good night everybody, and God Bless America!” Trump added.
In the video, Trump criticized Biden’s off-hands approach to his handling of the southern border and the policies that he claimed caused “millions” of illegal immigrants and drug smugglers from around the world to storm across.
“Drug cartels are now raking in billions of dollars from smuggling poison to kill our people and to kill our children,” said Trump.
Trump also lambasted Biden and the Democrats on the domestic front, blaming their left-wing policies on the giant increases in violent crime, and inflation that has plagued goods such as gasoline and food.
“Savage killers, rapists, and violent criminals are being released from jail to continue their crime wave, and under Biden, the murder rate has reached the highest in the history of our country,” said Trump.
He continued, “Biden and the radical Democrats have wasted trillions of dollars, and caused the worst inflation in half a century. Real wages are down 21 months in a row, gas prices have soared and are going up much higher than even before, and the typical American family is paying $2,200 in increased energy and food costs each year.”
Trump then called out the Biden administration over their weaponization of the Justice Department against political opponents, including him.
“Joe Biden’s weaponized Justice Department, and I’m a victim of it, is persecuting his political opponents. His administration is waging war on free speech. They’re trying to indoctrinate and mutilate our children,” said Trump.
“[Biden’s] leading us to the brink of World War III, and on top of all of that, he’s the most corrupt president in American history, and it’s not even close,” he added.
Trump then assured Americans that he would “reverse every single crisis, calamity, and disaster that Joe Biden has created” if he wins his presidential bid in 2024.
“I am running for president to end the destruction of our country, and to complete the unfinished business of Making America Great Again. We will make our country better than ever before, and we will always put America first,” said Trump.
