Former President Donald Trump painted a grim picture for the country’s future under policies being adopted by his successor in an interview over the weekend with Fox News host Mark Levin.
Trump told Levin, who is also a top-rated conservative talk radio host, that while the country was divided under former President Barack Obama, it seems doubly so under President Joe Biden, and that won’t bode well for America’s future survival.
The former president joined Levin’s “Life, Liberty & Levin” program to talk about his new book, “Our Journey Together,” which is a collection of personally selected photos of him and his family during their four years in office.
Levin went on to note that Trump has said he believes Biden will go on to become the worst U.S. leader in history while critics have pointed to the president’s policies thus far that they say are contributing to a stiff economic downturn that is worse than the one experienced during President Jimmy Carter’s single term in the late 1970s.

Trump pointed out other policies, including Biden’s executive order reversing one Trump issued that barred federal agencies from adopting Marxist critical race theory dictums, which critics say are pointedly anti-white.
“If you look, President Obama was very divisive, but people were more quiet about it. They didn’t want to insult him, but he was very divisive,” Trump said.
“But the Biden administration is far worse. In fact, I noticed the other day where Obama said ‘this is very dangerous’ all of these — you know, what they’ve done. It’s too much for him,” he went on.
“But when they look at his top economic people are looking at this inflation, and they’re seeing these bills that are being passed for trillions and trillions of dollars where it’s like throwing money out the window,” Trump added, an apparent reference to Obama officials including Treasury Secretary Lawrence Summers who have sounded the alarm over some of Biden’s policies.
“These are Obama people telling Biden people ‘you can’t do this, -‘ but they push forward anyway. Let’s see what happens,” said Trump.
The 45th president praised Virginia Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin’s victory as he prepares to be inaugurated in Richmond early next year after upsetting Bill Clinton ally Terry McAuliffe. Trump said Youngkin telephoned him after his victory last month to thank him for supporting his gubernatorial bid.
“The MAGA people came out in a force far greater than anybody thought possible,” said Trump.
Fox News noted: “In that race, Youngkin made noted gains for the GOP in more Democrat-leaning areas in the north and around Washington D.C., while also running up the score in heavily pro-Trump areas around Bristol, Wytheville, Bland and Cumberland Gap.”
Though Trump said Youngkin’s victory ought to serve as a wake-up call for the political left, he said whether it did or not the country must re-adopt policies for strong borders, a fair press, free enterprise, and other values that he says Biden has sidelined.
“We don’t have [that],” he said.
“Who wouldn’t want voter ID, as an example? Who wouldn’t want a strong military, or a border? Who wants to have millions of people flowing into our country?” asked Trump.
“If you did a sample of 1,000 people, typical, good, American people that love our country, they can’t believe what they’re witnessing at the border, and some of the people are really bad,” he said.
Trump also made some predictions.
“I think you’re going to see a big, big victory for Republicans in the midterms. I think it’s going to be very hard for them to come back that fast,” he said, before sounding a dire note.
“This country has tremendous potential, tremendous, but we’re giving it away, and there’ll be a point where the country can’t come back, and we can never allow that point to be reached,” Trump predicted.
