At the very top of that list are Republicans taking back the House of Representatives in 2022, an election the majority of experts believe will be a landslide for the GOP.

Winning back the Senate would also be helpful because in a day and age of polarized politics a decent majority is what is needed. As President Joe Biden has learned, a slim majority can stymie your agenda.

In an interview with Newsmax host John Bachman before his rally in Arizona on Saturday, the former president said that the “number one” priority is to take the House from the Democrat majority, who, he said, are “radicalized, horrible people who hate our country.”

“We have to take it back,” he said. “What they’re doing with the open borders, the judges, and all of the things they’ve been doing is so sad … we’ve got to win the House and I think we can win the Senate also. We should win the House, maybe handily, and I think we should win the Senate.”

The 45th President of the United States criticized the way President Biden handed the withdraw from Afghanistan, saying it was a low point for our nation.

“We were coming out strong, with dignity, and there’s never been a lower point than what happened with Afghanistan,” he said.

Meanwhile, there were some chants in Saturday’s crowd about Dr. Anthony Fauci to “lock him up,” and Trump told Bachman that the doctor, who is now Biden’s chief medical adviser, has “done some pretty poor work.”

He added that Fauci wanted him to keep the United States open to China and Europe in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, and if that had happened, “we would have lost hundreds of thousands more people.”

Trump further said that Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and who served on his White House’s Coronavirus Task Force, “wasn’t a big factor in my administration.”

“Biden has made him a big factor and they have done a horrible job on COVID, or the China virus, as I call it,” he said. They’ve done a horrible job.”

He also criticized the mandates that have been enacted, and in many cases struck down by the courts, that the Biden administration has enacted.

“The mandates are killing our economy,” the former president said. “I’m convinced that when you have supply chain problems, you can’t get paper, you can’t get lumber, they can’t build houses, they have no nails, they have nothing. I think to start off with, the mandates are a disaster.”

He argued that “you can’t get people to work because of the mandates.”

He also took on the energy crisis and the price of gasoline in the United States.

“We were energy independent and now we’re reliant on OPEC and Russia,” the former president said. “We had energy independence and if you remember, it was $1.87 a gallon to fill up your car. Now it’s up to $6-$7. In California, it’s over $7.”

And he said he believe that “somebody got a lot of money” when Biden and the Democrats, who were supposed to be tough on Russia, rejected Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s for legislation to sanction Russia over the Nord Stream II pipeline that goes from Russia into Germany.

“We had it stopped,” he said. “It’s also very bad for Europe. If we get into fisticuffs it’s going to be pretty bad, if they [the Russians] say, ‘guess what, we’re turning off your energy.’”

And he took on the border crisis which has been one of his main topics since he announced his candidacy in 2016.

“The whole country is a border state, if you think about it,” he said. “They’re pouring through the country but for Arizona and Texas in particular their borders are a terrible problem. We’ve got millions of people coming into our country and many are coming from prisons of other countries, over 129 countries they said last week … they’re emptying out their prisons. The United States is a dumping ground for a lot of people who are not the people that we want.”

He said praise for House Minority Leader and California Rep. Kevin McCarthy but said he was never “a fan” of Senate Minority Leader and Kentucky Sen. Mitch McConnell.

“I helped him get elected,” he said. “Without me, he would have lost his race. Then he goes and makes stupid statements after Jan. 6, which was not my situation.”

He blamed Sen. McConnell for giving Democrats “the power they should have never had, so I’m not a fan of him, and I think he’s hurting the party very badly.”
