In an interview that aired on X, formerly Twitter, on Wednesday night, former President Donald Trump told Tucker Carlson that he has retired his “crooked Hillary” Clinton moniker and adopted it for President Joe Biden.
Trump opted out of the first Republican primary presidential debate of the 2024 election cycle in favor of a one-on-one interview with Tucker Carlson, arguing that he is so far ahead in the polls that it would be futile to partake.
The 45th president informed Carlson that his candidacy is receiving tremendous support.
“I have never seen spirit like it is right now, and the reason is because crooked Joe Biden is so bad,” Trump said.
“He’s the worst president in the history of our country. I don’t think he’s going to make it to the gate, but you never know,” he continued.

“But he’s a corrupt person. So corrupt that I took the name off Hillary. I don’t do two people at one time,” Trump explained.
“I took the ‘crooked Hillary,’ and I retired the name. It was a good name for her. I bet she was very happy, and I used it for Joe, because he’s ‘crooked Joe,’” he added.
Trump implied that he doubts Biden will be the Democratic nominee.
“He’s worse mentally than he is physically, and physically he’s not exactly a triathlete or any kind of an athlete,” the Republican said.
