Trump Cracks ‘Joke’ About Not Being A Dictator if Reelected ‘Except For Day One’

via Forbes Breaking News

Former President Donald Trump, a candidate for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, addressed claims that he would be a “dictator” if reelected during a televised town hall event.

He dismissed the claim but humorously suggested that on his first day, he would act like a dictator by closing the border and promoting drilling. However, he clarified that this wouldn’t be an ongoing behavior.

“You are promising America tonight you would never abuse power as retribution against anybody?” (Trending: Joe Biden Admits He’s ‘Not Sure’ About Running If Trump Wasn’t)

“Except for day one,” Trump said.

“Except for –” Hannity began.

“[John Kerry] is going to prison. Except for day one,” Trump pressed.

“Meaning?” Hannity asked.

“I want to close the border and I want to drill, drill, drill,” Trump said.

“That is not retribution,” Hannity responded.

“I’m going to be — I love this guy. You are not going to be a dictator, are you? I said no, no other than day one. We’re closing the border and we’re drilling, drilling, drilling. After that, I’m not a dictator,” Trump said.

“That sounds like you’re going back to the policies when you were president,” Hannity said.
