After months inside the White House, Donald Trump has spent the last week in front of his people. After a disastrous rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the President has found friendly footing at a church in Arizona and at a shipyard in Wisconsin.
In addition to the shipyard appearance, Trump also held a town hall meeting with Sean Hannity. While speaking with the Fox host, a resigned President told the audience that Biden “is going to be your President.”
During the appearance, Hannity asked the President about the multiple polls that show him trailing Joe Biden by double digits.
“Whenever he does talk, he can’t put two sentences together,” Trump whined. “I don’t want to be nice or un-nice. The man can’t speak. And he is going to be president because some people don’t love me, maybe. And all I’m doing is doing my job.”

During the shipyard speech, Trump unfavorably compared Democrats to dictators like those in North Korea and Russia. Riffing to the crowd, the President said:
“They said to me, ‘Sir,’ a friend of mine, very smart, very successful person. Used to call me Donald, now he calls me sir. He says, ‘Mr. President.’ I said, ‘Call me Donald.’ ‘Yes, but I can’t, Mr. President.’ Which is okay. He said, ‘So, which is the toughest nation to deal with? Is it China? Is it possibly Russia? Or is it maybe North Korea?’ I said, “No. The toughest nation to deal with are the Democrats in the USA.”
