Trump’s message dropped ahead of a GOP convention in North Carolina on Saturday evening, when he blasted the Biden administration for “destroying” the country, as well as lambasting his detractors within the Republican Party.
"The one thing [the Democrats] have is that they stick together. They don't have people like we do who go off on their own and do what they have to do,” Trump said.
As rumors swirl around his political future, Trump alarmed critics on Friday when he said in an interview that he may be interested in running for Congress in the near future.Also on rt.com 'Next time I’m in the White House… no more dinners with Zuckerberg’: Trump blasts Facebook ban, drops MASSIVE 2024 run hint
Speaking with right-wing radio host Wayne Allyn Root, it was suggested that Trump should become House Speaker, which the former president admitted was a “very interesting” proposition.
“People have said, run for the Senate, OK?” Trump said following the suggestion. “But you know, your idea might be better.”
