Former President Trump dismissed allegations that his potential return to the White House would be a threat to democracy, labeling them as 'hoax' and 'misinformation.' He asserted that President Biden is actually the 'real threat.'

Speaking at an event hosted by the New York Young Republican Club, Trump predicted the end of what he referred to as Biden's 'Banana Republic' after the 2024 election. He criticized the Democrats and the media for continually presenting new hoaxes, such as the previous 'Russia, Russia, Russia' and 'Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine' narratives.

Defending himself against the accusation of being a threat to democracy, Trump stated, 'no, I'm not a threat. I will save democracy.' He further criticized Biden's handling of the economy, warning of a potential depression and stating that the current administration has no clue how to tackle the issue.

Trump called the claims of a threat to democracy a 'desperate and shameless attempt to distract' from the alleged abuses of power committed by the left. In response, Biden and other Democrats have cautioned that a second Trump presidency could damage U.S. democracy.

Amid ongoing investigations and the possibility of facing indictments, Trump warned Biden about the consequences of prosecuting a political opponent and insinuated the potential for retaliation if he were to return to the White House.

Trump's previous comments about being a dictator for a day, with the aim of building a border wall and promoting drilling, drew criticism from press freedom groups. However, he clarified that his intention was not to become a dictator but to achieve specific policy goals.

Concluding his speech, Trump expressed confidence in his return to the White House, vowing to 'throw off the sick political class,' defeat the 'fake news media,' and make America 'great again.'
