Former President Donald Trump refused in a prime time town hall to rule out abusing power to go after his critics – saying he he wouldn't do it 'except for Day One' – when given multiple opportunities to forswear plans for vengeance or a power grab.
'To be clear, do you in any way have any plans whatsoever if reelected president to abuse power, to break the law to use the government to go after people,' Hannity asked him.
'You mean like they’re using right now?' Trump responded, without answering the question directly. (other subjects) You are promising America tonight you would never abuse power as retribution?' Hannity asked the former president, who is leading President Joe Biden in a series of polls.
'Except for Day One,' Trump answered.
'Meaning?' Hannity asked him.
'I want to close the border and I want to drill, drill, drill.'

For those who watched the townhall, Trump did not say he was going after his enemies. There was an edit after the first time hannity asked the question, so it appears Trump didn't answer, and hannity changed the subject.
Then, later when hannity brings the subject back up, after Trump says his comments after 'we're closing the border, and we're drilling, drilling, drilling, after that, I'm not a dictator',
hannity says 'that's sounds to me you're going back to the policies when you were president'.... then goes to a break...
Dailymail then adds this line:
A Biden-Harris account tweeted out the clip, appending the line, 'Trump: I will be a dictator on day one.'
to the story, changing the spin of what happened.
Like Trump says... fake news...
I’m already voting for Trump. They don’t need to sell him.
Anti Trump TRASH web page.
Vanity Hannity is a lowlife scumbag dirtball.
“I’m already voting for Trump. They don’t need to sell him.”
I like your sharp humor. :)
Any one that reads this,would believe this trash of lies is a fool!
Sad our own media continues to print lies and the usual talking fake losers will regurgitate this!
Trump will be a lame duck immediately.
“Too bad Fake News is not controlled for (out)right lies!”
I want to drill, drill, drill.
This immediately sends Russia & Iran back to harmless skid row, until the next Dem is elected to enrich earth’s malcontents as per always.
Not sure how many saw this fr 2017-
Buried within the U.S. intelligence community’s report on Russian activities in the presidential election is clear evidence that the Kremlin is financing and choreographing anti-fracking propaganda in the United States. By targeting fracking, Putin hopes to increase oil and gas prices, destabilize the U.S. economy and threaten America’s energy independence.
Watch Trump’s favorability go up and Joetato’s go down.
The “dictator for life” narrative will fail just like all the rest.
Then he won’t have to worry about whether or not he should do things, based on what others will think.
Trump ‘Cut the department of education?’
rino uniparty ‘BUT YOU CAN’T DO THAT’
It’s not “being a dictator” to express no-confidence in various professional bureaucrats and request resignations. Those who don’t resign can enjoy their new duties in Barrow, Alaska.
I see more negative stories about Democrats than Republicans on Daily Mail.
It will take some circumventing of law...as if that mattered since Marxist Democrats have used the Constitution for toilet paper. The invaders must be rounded up and shoved back across a secured border. Borders shut down for the duration until this Biden-Obama mess is sorted out and order is maintained.
So much has to be done and the selection of a vice president is of monumental importance.
Anything involving land and businesses acquired by the Chicoms must be seized.
So much to be done and so little time.
I think it would be far scarier to portray him as the next Pinochet throwing communists out of aircraft at altitude.
