Former President Donald Trump has not only teased a 2024 presidential campaign run, but he also seems to have a new and bizarre theory that the United States will be no more in three years time.
In a Newsmax interview on Tuesday with his former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, the former commander-in-chief made the contradictory claims.
And without missing a beat, he brought up false claims again that the 2020 presidential election was rigged.
“The people of our country respect us, they love our country, and they want to see our country succeed,” Trump told Spicer before adding that the “country has gone really downhill in the last eight months like nobody’s ever seen before” without having substantial proof that this is the fate of the country.
“And you go to these elections that are coming in ‘22 and ‘24; we’re not going to have a country left. The election was rigged, and we’re not going to have a country left in three years,” he continued.
Spicer then seemed to want to end the interview, which may have something to do with the $1.6 billion lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems over the widespread claim that the 2020 presidential election was rigged and defaming the voting machine company.

However, he did have a final question for Trump. Noting that he has decided to run in the 2024 run for the presidency and how his supporters would be thrilled by it, Spicer asked him when he would announce his plans.
“I will probably not comment on that, but I will tell you will be very happy,” Trump responded before adding that the United States is now “a laughingstock.”
