Fox News host Laura Ingraham reflects on former President Donald Trump’s success on “The Ingraham Angle.”
LAURA INGRAHAM: Well, [the economy] sure is danger, danger for Biden in 2024, or it should be, if Republicans keep the focus on the economy. And let’s not forget another issue where Trump was transformative, the border. By every measure, Americans are outraged at the human, the economic and the crime problems Biden’s open border zealots have created.
Nearly three quarters [of voters] are saying that they’re doing a bad job at the border. But before Trump, let’s remember the GOP was generally pretty unreliable on illegal immigration, pushing things like amnesty. They call it comprehensive immigration reform instead of comprehensive enforcement. The transformation that Trump ushered in, left the Bushes and the Cheneys in the dust.
The establishment in both parties, they’re grudgingly finding out that you can only defy your voters for so long. Following the demands of big donors or fringe activists means today you’re pretty conventional. You’re not transformational when you do that, but defying the status quo, to stand with the people even under the threat of imprisonment. That means you’re not just transformational, you are historic. And that’s “The Angle.”
