DONALD TRUMP has taken a swipe at Joe Biden claiming his administration has been a "complete and total disaster" since he took office in January.
Kicking off his 2022 campaign rally circuit on Saturday night, Trump told supporters that Biden was "destroying our nation right before our very own eyes."
"After just five months the Biden administration is already a complete and total catastrophe," he told a crowd in Wellington, Ohio.
"I told you. Crime is surging. Murders are soaring. Police departments are being gutted. Illegal aliens are overrunning their borders. Nobody's ever seen anything like it.
"Our poor borders. They were so perfect. They were so good. Drug cartels and human traffickers are back in business like they've never been before.
"They're doing numbers that they've never even thought possible. Just a few short months ago, drugs were way down, human trafficking was way down. It was all way down.
"Joe Biden is squandering all of this hard-earned respect that we have – or had – bowing down to America's enemies and embarrassing our country on the world stage," Trump said. "You saw that, it was an embarrassment."
He also reasserted his claim that the 2020 presidential election was rigged.
"They [the Democrats] used COVID in order to cheat," Trump said. "They used COVID in order to rig the election and in order to steal the election, they used COVID. That's as simple as it gets.
Trump, who has continuously flirted with the idea of running for president again in 2024, was appearing to campaign for GOP primary candidate Max Miller, running for reelection in Ohio's 16th congressional district.
"We're going to take back the House," Trump added. "We're going to take back the Senate, and we will take back America."
