During an exclusive interview with Breitbart News at his Mar-a-Lago resort, former President Donald Trump articulated his apprehensions regarding the trajectory of the United States economy. If he fails to secure a victory in the 2024 presidential election, he forecasts a profound recession comparable to the Great Depression of 1929. During his two-plus hour interview with Breitbart News, Trump correlated the present state of the stock market with expectations surrounding his potential victory over President Joe Biden.
“I believe that if I do not win, 1929 will be the year of the Great Depression,” Trump said. I believe the stock market is rising because, according to the surveys, more people believe I will prevail. Biden is fortunate in that respect. The stock market was phenomenal for me. Everything regarding our economy was favorable. There was no inflation during that period.
In support of his assertion, Trump cited recent stock market trends as documented by CNBC, which projected a substantial increase of 24% in 2023. He ascribed this increase to the deceleration of inflation, a robust economy, and indications from the Federal Reserve regarding the cessation of its rate-hiking initiative. Nevertheless, Trump conveyed a critical attitude towards the present condition of the economy and the veracity of employment figures, implying that the apparent decline in inflation signifies more extensive economic concerns and that a significant portion of the population is not proactively pursuing employment.
Throughout the interview, Trump also responded to the establishment media’s criticisms, discounting them as unfounded and motivated by a dearth of substantial issues to rally behind during his campaign. He reaffirmed his conviction that the favorable stock market performance is predominantly attributable to public trust in his prospective electoral triumph.
Recent Morning Consult polling indicates that approximately fifty percent of American voters have more faith in Trump than in Biden regarding the economy; Biden is 18 points behind.
As he prepares for the 2024 presidential election, Trump’s remarks, which emphasize the correlation between his prospective victory and the nation’s economic stability, reflect his ongoing campaign narrative.
