Donald Trump says ‘get this crazy war ended now’
Donald Trump was “not pulling any punches” after Joe Biden’s State of the Union address as he plots the “greatest political comeback”, allies of the Republican have told Express.co.uk. The 45th POTUS immediately responded to Biden’s performance in Congress by slamming his successor with his alternative State of the Union address on social media. Trump allies have argued Republicans are well-placed to take on Biden’s Democrats in 2024.
Harrison Floyd, who worked as executive director at Black Voices for Trump, told Express.co.uk: “Trump’s coming out the gate swinging and he’s not pulling any punches.”
The US Marine Corps veteran, who blasted Biden over Afghanistan, classified documents, his son Hunter and the recent Chinese balloon sighting, added: “Biden said he was going to unify the country, did the State of the Union look like we are unified?
“Any Republicans that run in 2024 will have confidence they can beat Biden.
“Why? Because they can. The only track record he has is of making things worse.”
Pastor Mark Burns, who was an early supporter of Trump’s 2016 White House bid, reiterated the 45th POTUS is confident he will become the second Commander-in-Chief since Grover Cleveland to serve two non-consecutive terms in the Oval Office.

“But it’s sad for Americans because Americans are suffering, inflation is running high, groceries are expensive, this is all under Joe Biden.”
Pastor Burns added: “Biden was rattled by the Republican caucus last night but he absolutely fears Trump.
“Trump’s team is extremely excited as he’s the man for the hour and we are going to witness the greatest political comeback in United States’ history.”
