This week, Donald Trump is focused on proving that he’s ready for a tough 2024 fight.
Although at the same time, he wants to convince people that there is no fight to be had, and he will coast to the White House – again.
Whichever side his followers fall on, it’s clear that they’re divided and disorganized.
So Trump kicked off Thursday strong by promising great events in the weeks and months to come – and dropping a prophecy of the “doom” he plans to save the country from.
Donald Trump Will Save the Country from ‘Doom’
It’s time for Donald Trump to prove to voters that he’s serious about retaking the White House in 2024.
So far, his rallies have been unimpressive. Either few and far between or small in scope.
Now, however, Trump promises that it’s time to kick it into high gear.
The former POTUS took to Truth Social for a Thursday morning rant, taking aim at the “stupid and corrupt” news for once again reporting unfavorable truth.
Trump wrote, “Making a big political speech today at TRUMP DORAL, in Miami. The Fake News says I am not campaigning very hard. I say they are stupid and corrupt, with the Election still a long time away. But do not fear, MANY GIANT RALLIES and other events coming up soon.”
He added, “It will all be wild and exciting.”
And Trump’s plan? To save the country, of course. Trump casually dropped a prophecy of doom before whipping out his favorite tagline, writing, “We will save our Country from DOOM and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
The former President has an uphill battle to convince even his stalwarts that a return to Trumpism is best for everyone.
Although President Joe Biden’s administration has not been overly popular, it’s been undeniably calmer.
And a controversy-weary voter bloc may be a hard sell for a return to the chaos and constant controversy of a Trump White House.
Donald Trump Takes Swipe at Evangelicals for ‘Disloyalty’

This week, Trump is also trying to rally the troops – and finding it much harder to do than he expected.
Trump was interviewed on “The Water Cooler with David Brody,” a podcast which focuses on the intersection between faith, news, politics and culture.
Trump was asked how he feels about the fact that evangelicals have not turned out to support him in 2024, at least not yet.
The former POTUS lashed out, telling Brody, “That’s a, that’s a sign of disloyalty. There’s great disloyalty in the world of politics, and that’s a sign of disloyalty because nobody – as you know and you would know better than anybody because you do such a great job – nobody has ever done more for ‘right to life’ than Donald Trump.”
It was probably not the message Trump wanted to get across, he should still be in the “carrot” phase rather than the “stick” one, but it seemed like it came from Trump’s heart.
Evangelicals have long made up the backbone of Republican voters, and they were staunchly behind Trump in 2016 – a little less so in 2020.
So Trump calling them to task is both an insult and a startling peek into the way he views his entitlement to the 2024 candidacy.
But this isn’t the first time he’s lashed out at voters he believes should be in line behind him already – Trump also lashed out at Jewish people for not supporting him.
Whether or not Trump can bully or chide people into supporting him remains to be seen, but it’s clear that Trump is already trying to get his ducks in a row and his supporters hyped for 2024 – and it’s not working yet.
