In an interview with Fox News’s Mark Levin, former President Donald Trump compared himself to former President Richard Nixon on Sunday (April 23) and emphasized the support he has in Congress and his party as he survived impeachment and now faces ongoing legal battles.
Trump explained that he would “never” forget what happened to him during his impeachment case, explaining that while Nixon had “no support,” noting that he was “very tough with people,” contrasting that with his own leadership style, which explained he “gets along with people.”
Trump added that he had people in his corner like GOP Congressman Jim Jordan.
The former President noted that while Nixon was in office, he didn’t “get along” with those in Congress but highlighted having “great people” in the GOP who “stuck together” during his impeachment.
Trump, who has been impeached twice during his presidency, lost re-election in 2020 and is now pursuing a White House in 2024 suggested on Sunday that Nixon’s “biggest regret” was that he “didn’t fight” Watergate in the 1970s, the scandal that forced him to retire.
Trump explained his belief Nixon’s “biggest regret was that he didn’t fight,” adding that “it wasn’t really like him. And I find that very interesting.”
Trump appeared on Levin’s show to promote his new book, “Letters to Trump,” which contains messages from pop culture and political figures to the former President and includes messages from talk show host Oprah Winfrey and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
