The conversation, which took place in Davenport, Iowa, saw Trump addressing an array of topics, including the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, his ongoing legal battles, and potential election rivals.
Trump, the GOP Front-Runner Despite Legal Battles

Trump's Stance on Key Issues
During the interview, the former president touched on issues such as the southern border, nuclear weapons, and Social Security.

Speculations on Democratic Opponents
Trump also speculated on potential Democratic opponents. He questioned whether President Joe Biden would be physically able to endure another campaign and named California Governor Gavin Newsom and Vice President Kamala Harris as possible contenders. Trump's criticism of Biden's fitness for office extended to the claim that Biden would not seek re-election if Trump were not running.
Trump's Diplomatic Relations
Trump took the opportunity to highlight his diplomatic relations with world leaders such as Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un, attributing his administration's policies to the prevention of conflicts. He also claimed his policies would bolster Social Security financially.
