The editor-in-chief of Just the News told The Star News Network he was struck by President Donald J. Trump’s focus and sense of history in the balance during his recent interview with the president at Mar-a-Lago, his Palm Beach, Florida, resort.
“I’ve had the chance to interview President Trump several times. This was the time it’s the most I’ve seen him feel a sense of urgency and express a sense of urgency,” said John Solomon, who also hosts a weekday program on Real America’s Voice. “He basically said early on in the interview: ‘Hey, we’re headed towards communism, socialism. The country we know is about to slide away from this, and I want to stop it.’”
Solomon said Trump is also aware that he needs to unwind the damage Joe Biden has done to the country’s culture, economy, and security, he said.
The veteran reporter said the businessman-turned-president has specific plans to move America forward, such as his plan to use energy production to break inflation.
“Here’s how you get inflation down. If you bring energy prices down, he says, all of the rest of inflation comes down,” he said, relating Trump’s line of thinking.
“Why? Because everything else in the economy depends on having energy,” he said.
“Fertilizer comes from energy sources, food trucks, delivery products, plastics. If you get energy solved, inflation’s going to come down a lot quicker than worrying about interest rates and everything,” the journalist said.
Solomon said that despite their time together, Trump did not tell him what everyone wants to know. But he did leave Mar-a-Lago with a clue.
“All through the interview, I saw a much closer 2015, 2016, Donald Trump, but with a different policy lens because he now has the Biden agenda that he feels like he needs to reverse,” he said.
“You’ll walk away from the interview thinking there’s a really good chance he’s going to run in 2024.”
