Former President Donald Trump predicted the country will face an economic crisis and he hopes it happens within the next year.
On Monday night, President Joe Biden’s campaign posted a 10-second video on X/Twitter of the former president giving an interview on Lindell TV – a platform owned by Trump supporter and pillow magnate Mike Lindell. A teaser for the interview dropped earlier in the day showed Trump being interviewed by former Fox host Lou Dobbs.
At one point, Trump told Dobbs:
When there’s a crash, I hope it’s gonna be during this next [sic] 12 months because I don’t wanna be Hebert Hoover – the one president, I just don’t wanna be Herbert Hoover.
Hoover was inaugurated as president in March 1929. Six months later, the stock market crashed and triggered the Great Depression, which doomed his presidency.
