Trump cheered on Biden to ‘be incredibly successful’

Former President Donald Trump gave longtime rival President Biden a rare show of goodwill – insisting it was “incredibly successful” for him for the good of the country.

“Forget politics and Republican and Democratic stuff, radical left and everything else — I want someone who’s a great leader,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in part two of an interview that aired Thursday.

“I put the country first,” he said — insisting it even amounted to hoping for success for his much-mocked successor, Biden.

“I’d rather he was incredibly successful, even if it was a lot harder [election] and maybe even a loss,” Trump stressed, further hinting at a run in 2024.

“I want to see what’s good for this country,” he said.

Still, Trump made it clear that Biden was far from successful.

“This country is a mess. This country will not survive – it will not survive as it is now,” he said.

In another show of goodwill, Trump also confirmed that he had previously asked Hannity to be less harsh on Biden.

“I thought you were being very hard on him,” Trump said — to which Hannity insisted, “I was telling the truth.”

Trump also failed to heap on his aging successor – who turns 80 in November – when Hannity said he wasn’t even thinking [Biden] know that today is Wednesday”, the day the interview was filmed.

“I hope he does. In the interests of this country, I hope he does,” Trump said.

Trump also praised other world leaders, including Chinese President Xi Jinping and even warmongering Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“These are wild people — they’re smart, they’re tough, they don’t know about losing,” he said.

“These are very strong, smart people,” he added, saying it means “we need our smartest people” to compete with them.

As for China’s Xi, he said, “I was a very good friend of his until COVID showed up, and then I gave up on him.”

“It was China’s gift to us — a terrible gift,” he said of the pandemic, which was first detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan and has since claimed the lives of millions around the world.

Despite numerous hints that he plans to run for the White House again, Trump insisted he could not yet provide an official answer.

“I’d like to, but I can’t legally,” he said — something that wouldn’t apply if he were definitely not running.

Hannity said most people in his position would rather just play golf than “give up a great life,” and wondered why Trump would return “to this hellhole” of Washington, DC politics.

“Because I love the country,” Trump said, again strongly hinting at a planned run.
