TRUMP REFLECTS ON FIRST WIN: 2016 WAS ‘A VICTORY LIKE NOBODY’S EVER SEEN BEFORE’
Trump sat down with his former advisor, Steve Bannon, for an episode of War Room on Real America’s Voice, where he discussed his newest bestselling book, “Letters to Trump,” and the impact of the 2016 presidential election.
Bannon asked the president if his 2016 victory was a “line of demarcation” that caused his former celebrity friends to spurn him. Trump responded that this probably happened earlier, “more with the announcement” in 2015.
Despite the raging hatred that celebrities now seem to foster toward Trump, he noted that 2016 was a triumph for the ages. “That was a great victory, a victory like nobody’s ever seen before, let’s face it,” he said.
Trump recently elaborated on his triumph in 2016, telling Republicans at the Lee County GOP Dinner in Florida that just before he was elected president, “Republicans were on the verge of losing this nation forever.”
He discussed the less-than-optimistic state of the Union with Bannon, criticizing the “sick” weaponization of the justice department and the country’s transformation into a communist state under the Biden administration.
“What they do is, they’re unbelievable with cheating on elections – with you I don’t have to worry about saying that, because if you say on Fox, they want to cut you out,” Trump continued to Bannon. “They cheated on elections.”
A collection of 150 private letters that Trump received over the course of four decades, from people as diverse as former president Bill Clinton and Hollywood stars like Oprah Winfrey, are included in his most recent book.
The book debuted at number one on Amazon, according to RSBN’s report from April, giving the president yet another bestselling book to his resume.
