On 'Jesse Watters Primetime,' Fox News host Jesse Watters dissected what he labels a 'new hoax' propagated by Democrats concerning former President Donald Trump. This narrative, according to Watters, suggests that if Trump secures the presidency in 2024, he would effectively become a dictator until his death, with his son Don Jr. continuing his legacy. Watters slammed this theory, arguing its foundation is baseless and primarily aimed to demonize Trump and his supporters.
Trump's Intentions: Dictatorial or Standard Presidential Practice?
Watters drew parallels between potential executive actions of Trump, such as closing the border and increasing drilling, and President Biden's executive orders on his first day. He suggested that these actions by Trump are not indicative of a dictatorial regime but rather align with standard presidential practice.
Moreover, Watters contends that Democrats are playing a hypocritical game, condemning Trump while supporting actions like arrests for vaccine refusal and promoting censorship. He highlights the inconsistency in their stance, questioning the Democrats' definition of dictatorship.
Reflection on Trump's Past Presidency
Watters further dismantled the likelihood of Trump becoming a dictator by referring to his past actions during his term. The former President did not mobilize the National Guard during riots, refrained from imprisoning Hillary Clinton, and allowed governors to maintain autonomy during the COVID-19 pandemic. These actions, according to Watters, are hardly the deeds of a dictator.
In conclusion, Watters suggests that this 'dictatorship hoax' targeting Trump will eventually backfire on the Democrats, akin to previous hoaxes he believes have fallen flat.
