Former US President Donald Trump said on Saturday that he kept America out of war during his presidency.

Addressing a crowd of rallygoers at the American Freedom Tour in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, he said that it was "my personality that kept us out of war" during four years he was in office, reported Business Insider. He claimed that he was the only US President in "four decades who did not get America into any conflicts, except I totally defeated Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS)."

Trump claimed in 2018 that his administration took down ISIS, but his agencies at the time didn't make such a declaration. For example, the State Department said that the US has "made significant progress," but added that "the job is not yet done."

On Saturday, Trump noted that other countries should not mistake US President Joe Biden's weakness for "America's weakness." According to him, "American power, American might, American leadership will soon be back and it will be back bigger and stronger then ever before."

He also vowed to get back into the White House two years later. He told his supporters that with the "support of everyone in this room, we will take back the House, we will take back the Senate and we will take back our country, and then most importantly in 2024, we are going to take back our beautiful White House." He said that the US had a President that "always put America first."

During the rally, he also falsely claimed that he had won the 2020 US Presidential election. He claimed that he had "won twice," and that his party "did much better the second time, and we may have to do it again." Trump has been making the false claim that he actually won since losing the 2020 Presidential election to Biden, and has been teasing a 2024 presidential bid as well. The former President hasn't announced a formal run for the 2024 election though. As for Biden, he has said concretely that he plans to run for re-election in 2024.

In 2020, Trump lost the election by 74 electoral college votes, and approximately seven million votes, reported Independent.
