What does ‘revenge’ look like to Donald Trump in 2025?

President Donald Trump has been the target of multiple legal and political attacks not just in 2024, but for the past eight years. Whether it was the “Russia Hoax,” two failed impeachments, or the events surrounding the 2020 presidential election, the legal battles he is facing in 2024 have drawn the world’s attention.

On Thursday, President Trump sat down for an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity in Eagle Pass, Texas, where Operation Lone Star has taken action to secure the southern border amid Joe Biden’s failure to do so.

The topic of “revenge” has come up frequently in the media lately in relation to Trump, as many pundits have postulated that the 45th president would possibly use his position in the Oval Office in 2025 to exact vengeance upon his political opponents who have viciously targeted him for years.

“My revenge is going to be success,” Trump said simply. “We’re going to make this country SO successful. We’re going to do it rapidly – we’re going to bring energy way down, we’re going to bring inflation way down, we’re going to get prices down.”

Last week, the president also spoke about success being the standard for so-called “revenge,” elevating victory in 2024 as the beginning of a great American comeback story for the nation.

“Your victory will be our ultimate vindication, your liberty will be our ultimate reward, and the unprecedented success of the USA will be my ultimate and absolute revenge – THAT’S WHAT I WANT!” he declared during this year’s CPAC speech.

The president’s visit to Eagle Pass this week drew national media attention as he toured Operation Lone Star alongside Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) and National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd.

He delivered remarks at the conclusion of his tour and later followed that up with a special sit-down interview with Sean Hannity.
