This blunder took place during an interview that aired on Wednesday evening. The President said he hadn’t heard the criticism of his answer the last time he was asked the question, by Fox News’ Sean Hannity, but said there was still “more to do” in his next term, again without naming any concrete policy goals. “We’re going to make America great again.”
“We’re doing things that nobody could have done,” the President told Sinclair’s Eric Bolling and then went on to list his achievements in the first term.
There was a point when Trump noted, “We’ve got to bring back our manufacturing,” before immediately claiming he already had, saying he had “brought it back very big.”
“We’re doing it — whether it’s trade, whether it’s military — all made in the USA. It’s so important.”
“Made in the USA. … We’ve got to bring back our manufacturing, and I’ve brought it back very big,” he said.
“But we have to make our own pharmaceutical products, our own drugs, prescription drugs, we have to make our own things. … So we have a lot of things we can do.”
“We’ve done a lot, but we have a lot of things we can do.”
In an interview with Hannity, Trump made a vague reference to “experience” without listing policies he wants to see implemented or issues that he wants to be resolved.
Trump ran on divisive rhetoric and a vague plan to “Make America Great Again” without laying out a clear governing agenda for a potential presidency.
After taking office, Trump’s agenda came into sharper focus, yet it often still appears ad hoc.
There were also rumours in John Bolton’s new book about President Trump trying to enlist the help of Chinese President Xi, in which Trump allegedly asked to help him win a second term.
John Bolton used to be Donald Trump’s National security adviser, before being sacked last year.
During the latest line of questioning about a potential second term, the President also said there was “more to do” on trade deals before going on to tout the “incredible” ones he’s already made.
“Our country will be so strong at the end of our first term. It’s going to be great.
It would have been phenomenal. We got hit with the plague. At the end of the second term it’s going to be at a level that nobody will have ever seen, the country,” Trump said.
