Trump Says America Becoming Like a Communist State

Former President Donald Trump on Jan. 31 lamented that the United States resembles a communist nation under his successor, pointing to rampant inflation, diminishing freedoms, and the porous U.S.–Mexico border.

“They’re destroying our country. They’re making us a different country. We’re becoming like a socialist or a communist state,” Trump told former top White House aide Kash Patel on his EpochTV’s “Kash’s Corner” program. The interview will premiere at 8 p.m. Eastern on Feb. 7.

“Why would they want to have a weak military? Why would they want to have high interest rates and higher taxes? And why would they want to have no border?” Trump said. “Why would they want to have no voter ID as an example, or sanctuary cities that take care of criminals? You go through all of these things, defund the police? Why do they want to defund our police?”

“It can’t be possibly good,” Trump said. “So either they’re stupid, which I don’t think they are, or they hate our country.”

Trump campaigned in 2020 by presenting the choice between him and then-candidate Joe Biden as one between freedom and communism. The former president never conceded the 2020 election in which the Democrats obtained control of the White House and both chambers of Congress.

Though Biden has rejected the socialist label, his administration has not been able to untether itself from a confluence of crises Americans often associate with socialist and communist regimes. Inflation has remained at the highest level in decades, with average gas prices at the highest point since September 2014. Though there is no evidence of a food shortage, a supply chain logjam has led to empty shelves in some supermarkets and shortages in fertilizer, truck parts, and new cars, among other goods. Meanwhile, many Americans associate Biden’s vaccine and mask mandates as an erosion of freedom.
