Former US President Donald Trump has predicted that America will end in three years. Contradicting his own statement, he also hinted that he may run for president in the 2024 elections.

The 75-year-old former president made the contradictory claims during a Newsmax interview on Tuesday, reported Huffington Post. He was speaking with his former White House press secretary Sean Spicer. Trump also claimed that the 2020 presidential election was rigged.

Trump said, “our country has gone really downhill in the last eight months like nobody’s ever seen before.” But, he didn’t give any proof about his claim that country will end. The former POTUS continued, “The election was rigged, and we’re not going to have a country left in three years, I’ll tell you that.”

When Trump was asked about announcing his plans for his 2024 presidential bid, he dodged the question, claiming that America is “a laughing stock.” However, he said that Spicer and many people will be happy with his decision.

Newsmax is currently facing a $1.6 million lawsuit for lying about widespread fraud in the 2020 presidential election and defaming Dominion Voting Systems.

Meanwhile, a new book titled, “Peril” by famous journalist Bob Woodward and Washington Post reporter Robert Costa has made some shocking revelations. According to the book, Trump’s top military adviser, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark Milley took extraordinary action, and called a secret meeting in his Pentagon office on Jan. 8. This was just after the Capitol attack on Jan. 6.

Milley believed that after the presidential elections, Trump was on a mental decline coming up with several conspiracy theories of his own. The authors mentioned in the book that he thought Trump could go rogue and called a secret meeting where he instructed senior military officials not to take any orders from anyone, unless he was involved in it, New York Times reported. Milley inspected the process for military action, which included launching nuclear weapons.

“Peril” reveals that Milley got to know that Trump had signed a military order to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan by Jan. 15, 2021, before he left the White House. Trump also ignored repeated requests by his staff and daughter Ivanka Trump to ask the rioters to call off the Capitol attack.
