Trump's "except for day 1" dictatorship remark. [View all]

The quote:

“We’re closing the border. And we’re drilling, drilling, drilling. After that, I’m not a dictator.”

As far as I know, elevating "drill, drill, drill" into the lofty realm of top two Trumpian talking points is a new development. I think this reflects a demonstration of submissiveness domestically to the Koch political machine and internationally to the pro-fossil fuel forces currently gathered in Dubai for COP28.

Trump is afraid of real billionaires and he knows he can't "win" the 2024 election without their support.
