President Donald Trump promised to “straighten the country out” if he’s elected president again in 2024 during a conversation with “Just the News, No Noise” on Monday during a special taping at the National Religious Broadcasters convention in Orlando, Florida.
The president touched on major hot-button topics, like the southern border crisis, inflation, taxes, the war in Ukraine, abortion, and the Durham Report. “We’ll have a border that will be as strong as it was – or even stronger,” he vowed.
He pointed out that the Durham report and the FBI’s alleged 278,000 cases of FISA violations was an example of political persecution. “Yeah, certainly I think I’ve been violated,” he remarked. “…I’ve been violated beyond belief.”
Trump added that “the persecution only goes up with the poll numbers,” while pointing out that his GOP primary polling was currently doing extremely well.

For example, the newest data from Morning Consult’s 2024 Republican Primary Tracker found that Trump is holding a monumental 38-point lead over runner-up and likely soon-to-be candidate Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.
Trump further called the abuse of the justice system and the dark duplicity of the FBI “election interference at the highest level” and demanded that the FBI “should stop” investigating him for “nonsense.”

“They ought to drop all of this nonsense,” he reiterated.
He also railed against the “very corrupt election” processes in the United States, noting the correlation between an unsecured border and an unsecured election system. “If you don’t have elections and borders, as a country you’ve got yourself some real big problems,” he said.
Trump has often vowed to clean up the election system and root out Deep State corruption if he’s elected in 2024. He even promised supporters in April that he would create a special commission in the White House that would “declassify and publish all documents on Deep State spying, censorship, and corruption.”
