Former President Donald Trump said Monday that recent events such as the war in Ukraine and skyrocketing inflation would not have happened if he was still president.

Why it matters: Trump’s July 4th comments on the state of the country come as he gears up for a potential 2024 presidential run.

What he said: Trump said “it’s not looking good” for the United States right now due to the “major war raging out of control in Europe” and “the highest inflation in memory.”

Flashback: In a previous post, Trump called out Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), saying she is a “warmongering and despicable human being” in response to the Jan. 6 select committee hearings.

  • He called the Jan. 6 panel “political thugs” who were involved in his impeachment hearings.

The big picture: Trump’s comments come as recent polling shows that voters don’t want to see Trump or President Joe Biden run on the ballot in 2024, Axios’ Mark Robinson writes.

  • Seven out of 10 people said they don’t want to see Biden seek another term.
  • Six in 10 voters said they don’t want Trump to run again, with one-in-three voters saying he will divide the country.
