Democrats spent four years portraying Donald Trump as a dangerous president.
Considering that there were no Russian invasions, sky-high gas prices, and debilitating economic inflation during the Trump years, however, many Americans simply do not buy the Democratic Party’s talking points.
For his part, Trump seems to be embracing the newfound appreciation he is receiving from so many citizens.
Although he is still banned from Twitter, he was able to share his thoughts on recent events in a statement shared on social media by spokesperson Liz Harrington.

Considering the fact that fuel has hit its highest per-gallon cost of all time this week, it appears that one prediction Trump made during the 2020 campaign is on its way to becoming reality.
As our friends over at The Western Journal reported:
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average price per gallon of gas at the time of this speech was $2.20.
However, Trump made a dire prediction during the speech as to what would happen if Joe Biden was elected.
“If Biden got in, you’d be paying seven dollars, eight dollars, nine dollars,” Trump said. “Then they’d say, ‘get rid of your car.’”
At the time, establishment media outlets criticized Trump for this prediction. The Washington Post called it “dubious” and cited “experts” who said concerns about a rise in gas prices under Biden were “overblown.”
As the hashtag #BidenGasCrisis continues to trend on Twitter, it’s obvious that many Americans agree that the White House bears responsibility for the current situation.
The science behind our high gas prices is to due to poor leadership and diplomacy of our government. #BidenGasCrisis

Gas prices have risen nearly every single month of Joe Biden's presidency.
Today, it is "Russia's fault"
Before that, it was OPEC's fault
Before that, it was "because of the virus"
Serious question: How bad will gas prices have to be before he accepts some responsibility?

Instead of acknowledging the impact of his policies on the price of gas, Biden has sought to deflect and even declared that his administration can’t do anything to bring consumer costs down.
According to Breitbart:
President Joe Biden shrugged at high gas prices on Tuesday, just hours after promising Americans he would do whatever it took to lower them.
“Can’t do much right now,” he told reporters when asked about the spike in gas prices. “Russia is responsible.”
Biden spoke about gas prices after exiting Air Force One in Texas for an event on veterans’ health care.
When reporters asked Biden what his message to Americans suffering the effects of high gas prices was, he replied, “They’re going to go up.”
Here’s a video clip of Biden’s response to a question by one reporter.
Do you think Joe Biden is to blame for rising gas prices?
