In a recent speech at a sold-out GOP fundraiser in Rapid City, Donald Trump made a surprising claim that he had missed out on huge financial opportunities during his time as President of the United States. Here’s the full story.
“I Lost a Number of Billions!”
During his speech, Trump said, “I’m the only president who ever lost money while serving in office … I lost a number of billions! I could’ve made a fortune.”
Trump Didn’t Make Deals
“I could’ve gone to these countries and made deals … I told my kids ‘Don’t do deals.’ They said, ‘Dad can we do something? I said, ‘No, I’m president. We have a higher standard,’” he added.
A Positive Response to Trump’s Remarks
While the audience at the fundraiser responded positively to Trump’s remarks, social media was abuzz with reactions.
I’m President, We Can Do Anything
One social media user humorously wrote, “Are we sure he didn’t really say… ‘I’ve made a fortune. I’ve gone to these countries and made deals.
My kids said ‘Dad, can we do something? And I said, I’m President, we can do anything. We don’t have to follow any standards.”
“A Noble Sacrifice”
Another user commented “What a noble sacrifice,” while a third user added, “Didn’t he already have what most would consider a fortune before becoming president?”
Trump Made More Money
A fourth user wrote, “Trump made more money, illegally, while in office than most people make in a lifetime. Can’t believe any sane person would believe this inveterate liar.”
His Children Wanted to ‘Do Something’
Another user added, “Did he just admit his children wanted to ‘do something’ with foreign countries? The same ‘something’ he’s blaming Biden for?”
He Should Return to Business
A fifth user commented, “Since all Trump cares about is money, and if being president wasn’t profitable enough for him, then perhaps returning to the full-time grift-making business is a wiser choice than seeking the presidency again.”
Trump’s speech took place in South Dakota, where Governor Kristi Noem, speculated to be a potential running mate for the 77-year-old in the 2024 presidential election, officially endorsed him during the event.
The Leader America Needs
She said, “He is the leader, the fighter that our country needs.”
“He has my full and complete endorsement for president of the United States of America,” she added.
