Even Left-leaning media is admitting Trump was right. And now we see some unity between the Democrats and Trump- himself- as they agree that Trump knew what he was talking about.
Vox News reported: “Here’s something you rarely hear a Democratic senator say: “Donald Trump was right.”
But that’s what Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) is saying now, and it’s all because of TikTok, the popular video app that Trump tried to ban in the waning months of his presidency.
“As painful as it is for me to say, if Donald Trump was right and we could’ve taken action then, that’d have been a heck of a lot easier than trying to take action in November of 2022,” Warner told Recode. “The sooner we bite the bullet, the better.”
Warner is the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and his problems with TikTok are more than shared by his Republican counterpart, committee vice chair Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). Rubio’s been sounding the alarm about TikTok since 2019 — before Trump, even — and he’s still doing it now. He recently co-authored an op-ed in the Washington Post that called for the app to be banned. In December, he introduced a bipartisan bill with Reps. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) and Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) that would do just that: the Averting the National Threat of Internet Surveillance, Oppressive Censorship and Influence, and Algorithmic Learning by the Chinese Communist Party (ANTI-SOCIAL CCP) Act.
“There is no more time to waste on meaningless negotiations with a CCP-puppet company,” Rubio said in a statement. “It is time to ban Beijing-controlled TikTok for good.”
“‘TRUMP WAS RIGHT ABOUT EVERYTHING,’” he wrote. “One of the most often used current phrases or statements. Wow, such a magnificent compliment. Thank you!”
The 45th president has routinely been proven right on issues of economic policy, international relations, and constitutional skirmishes on American soil. In 2020, Trump warned that if Biden assumed leadership in the White House, the U.S. would head down a dark path, Summer Lane reported for Righside Broadcasting, adding:
According to a report from the Daily Caller, Trump predicted in 2020 that Biden would throw the southern border wide open, which would lead to an increase in child and human trafficking, an expansion of illegal asylum, and an uptick in violent crime.
Per The Heritage Foundation, there was a 529 percent increase in criminal alien encounters with sex offense convictions at the southern border for the fiscal year of 2022. “Biden reversed many Trump-era policies that stemmed the tide of illegal immigration into the United States,” their Twitter account explained. “As a result, convicted-criminal-alien encounters – including assaults, rapes, & homicides – have ‘spiked’ during Biden’s first two years in office…”

Lane added more details:
Trump also predicted catastrophically high prices for energy and oil if Biden got into office, and his prediction has sadly come true. Via Breitbart, gas last summer spiked to a nationwide average of $4.065 per gallon, with some places in states like California paying over $7 per gallon.
Biden also immediately killed the Keystone XL Pipeline when he took a seat in the Oval Office, which would have delivered 35 million gallons of Canadian crude oil to American refineries every day had it been completed, according to CBN News.
On top of that, Trump also warned that Biden’s America would be one that would plunge into a depression. “You will see a depression the likes of which you have never seen,” Trump said in August 2020, per the Daily Caller.
In 2022, a depressing report from the Bureau of Economic Analysis confirmed that the real gross product (GDP) in the U.S. had declined in the second quarter of the year, marking two consecutive contracted quarters of economic growth.
Additionally, prices on goods and supplies have risen significantly, and American store shelves have been ceaselessly plagued by snarled supply chain issues since Biden took office.
As far as Tik Tok goes, Vox reported, ” Rubio is likely to reintroduce it in the next session, where TikTok appears to be Congress’s next Big Tech target. The Big Tech antitrust bills that once seemed sure to pass this year are likely dead. It’s uncertain if and how they’ll be revived in the next Congress. There’s also the fact that some of those Big Tech companies aren’t quite so big anymore, which makes it harder to make the argument that they’re hugely powerful and dominant companies that can only be curbed through targeted legislation. But the TikTok threat is something both sides might be able to agree on.”
