Trump issued his remark as progressive lawmakers remain focused on passing $2 trillion in social spending and climate legislation amid growing inflation, and on a partisan House select committee investigating events about the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
The nation further is dealing with a wave of migrants at the southern border, critical race theory affecting school curricula, and recent high-profile trials about fatal shootings with racial implications. Furthermore, China and Russia have taken actions that seem to threaten U.S. allies (Taiwan, Ukraine).
"America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction. Too many generations of greatness are counting on us. Enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!"
Politico on Tuesday reported Trump was leading in states he lost to Biden in 2020. The report stated that of likely voters in 2024, Trump "led Biden in Arizona by 8 percentage points, Georgia by 3 points, Michigan by 12 points, Pennsylvania by 6 points, and Wisconsin by 10 points."
Numerous surveys likewise have discovered that Biden's approval rating has plunged since late August, around the time of the U.S. troops departure from Afghanistan.
Trump's Thanksgiving Day statement came a day after he announced he was waiving attorney-client privilege to enable former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik to testify before the House Jan. 6 select committee.
Trump said he was doing so because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's partisan panel, in its subpoena to Kerik, had asked for voter-fraud evidence from the 2020 election that has been "hidden from the public."
Meanwhile, Lara Trump, the Fox News contributor and wife of Eric Trump, has bizarrely insisted that the rising cost of the Thanksgiving turkey is part of a liberal conspiracy to "chip away" at American traditions.
Through a discussion on Fox News regarding inflation and its impact on Thanksgiving-related purchases, the former president's daughter-in-law claimed leftwing Americans "want to fundamentally transform America '' and were using the humble Thanksgiving turkey as a vehicle for their nefarious plot.
"Well, how do you do that? You have to change America from the inside-out. You have to take away our traditions. So it might seem a little funny and a little ridiculous. 'Oh, don't have a turkey, then people won't come over.'"
