A year ago this month, former President Donald Trump released a list of items showing he was “right about everything” during the 2020 campaign.
Trump’s list was more of an indictment of the national media that refused to cover him fairly or honestly for four years.
Yet he can claim, as the media and some other Trump critics have acknowledged since he left office, that Trump’s seeming BS and conspiracy theories were, in fact, facts.
Trump noted that about Hunter Biden’s laptop, producing COVID-19 vaccines before he left office, and the false claim that Russians paid the Taliban a bounty for killing U.S. soldiers. Evidence exists that he was correct about all of these things.
This week, as Germany announced it was restarting coal plants after Russia cut off natural gas supplies, Trump fans circulated a video of German delegates at an international conference smirking as Trump declared their nation would be overly dependent on Russia if they did not rethink their energy priorities.
Republicans in Congress who are rushing headlong to hand President Joe Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi a victory on gun control may want to take note of Trump’s latest prediction on Wednesday.
On his own social media platform Truth Social, Trump declared, “The deal on ‘Gun Control’ currently being structured and pushed in the Senate by the Radical Left Democrats, with the help of Mitch McConnell, RINO Senator John Cornyn of Texas, and others, will go down in history as the first step in the movement to TAKE YOUR GUNS AWAY.”
“Republicans, be careful what you wish for!!!” Trump added.
It turned out that 14 Republicans sided with all 50 Democrats on a procedural maneuver to move the bill forward to a second Senate vote.
In Florida, Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott both voted against the bill.
