Piers Morgan says he 'misses' Donald Trump being president

PIERS MORGAN has admitted that he misses Donald Trump being in the White House and insists the former president "didn't get enough credit" for the job he did.

The 56-year-old TV presenter praised Trump's "forceful personality" which was able to "cut through the bureaucracy and cut to the quick about issues."

Speaking to Fox News' Sean Hannity earlier this week, Morgan said that Trump doesn't get the credit he deserves for being tough on China, something he feels President Joe Biden is getting unjust praise for.

"What I did like about him [Trump] was his forceful personality enabling him to cut through a lot of bureaucracy and cut to the quick about issues - and NATO was a good example," Morgan told Hannity.

"Everybody knows that most NATO countries don't pay their bills, we know that because Donald Trump shone a light on that inequity. That it was unfair that America should carry that for so many underpaying European countries.

"He was absolutely right about that. He was also right about the threat of China. Go back two or three years and Joe Biden doesn't think China is a threat. Suddenly he does.

"Donald Trump has been calling out China for 30 years.

"So there were lots of things which I felt Donald Trump didn't get enough credit for.

"Which Joe Biden because he is a liberal, and Democrat president, gets too much credit for now. I don't think he is held to the same account by the media in America that Donald Trump was.

"And I think that is a plain and obvious fact. And that is not good for the US media. You should be able to hold your own to account."

Morgan consistently backed and endorsed Trump during his initial presidential campaign in 2016, and has been one of the 75-year-old's most vocal supporters throughout his years in politics, but the two fell out when the Brit criticised Trump's response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It appears that despite the recent bad blood, Piers still thinks Trump would be a better choice for the American people than Biden, who he said needs to do more than the 'calm everything down' job that he's currently running with.

"I don't think that's enough," he said.

"I'm not sure people want a calm American who isn't taking dynamic action."
