Top Highlights from Trump’s ‘Hannity’ Town Hall

On Tuesday night, Fox News’ “Hannity” featured a town hall discussion with former President Trump covering topics such as the GOP presidential primary, President Biden, dictatorships, and more. Explore the standout moments from Trump’s appearance on “Hannity.”


Trump predicted President Biden ultimately wouldn’t be the Democrats’ nominee for president in 2024.

“I personally don’t think he makes it, okay? I haven’t said that. I’m saving it for this big town hall. I’ve never really said that. I personally don’t think he makes it,” Trump answered, to cheers from the audience.

“I think he’s in bad shape physically,” he added before joking about a previous instance in which Biden said he’d like to take Trump to the “back of the barn.”

Trump joked that Biden would “fall over” if he simply blew on him.

“I personally don’t think he makes it physically. I watched him at the beach. He wasn’t able to lift a beach chair, which is meant for children to lift. And mentally I would say he is possibly equally as bad, and maybe even worse,” Trump added.


The former president turned some heads with some of his comments during the town hall, most notably with his comments to Hannity’s question asking Trump to pledge to “never abuse power as retribution against anybody.”

“Except for day one,” Trump said. “I want to close the border and I want to drill, drill, drill.”

Hannity said “that’s not retribution,” with Trump quipping back, “I love this guy, he says, ‘you’re not going to be a dictator are you?’”

“I said, ‘No, no, no, other than day one,” Trump said.

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

Hannity suggested that Trump seemed to be indicating a return to his first-term policies, a sentiment the former president affirmed. Trump’s remarks followed assertions from various media sources suggesting that a second term might lead to a “dictatorship.”


Trump mocked President Biden for his claim that he wouldn’t be running for re-election if Trump wasn’t in the race.

“Well, I think somebody gave him a talking point. They thought that would sound good,” Trump said as the crowd laughed.

“You know, I just found out that Democrats are funding Nikki Haley’s campaign. I hear that Democrats are contributing to Ron DeSanctus’, or Ron DeSanctimonious, to Ron DeSanctus’ campaign. And then you hear the talking points. That’s the only thing they’re good at, cheating on elections and great talking points,” Trump added.


Trump came out swinging in his town hall, but one of the biggest moments of the night was the former president calling his shot in the Hawkeye State.

The former president declared to Fox News’ Sean Hannity that he would “win Iowa.”

Trump touted the “hundreds of billions of dollars in taxes and tariffs” from China and “gave the farmers $28 billion.”

“That’s why I say I’m going to win Iowa,” Trump said, eliciting cheers from the Hawkeye State crowd.


Trump’s town hall began with him torching Biden over his criticism of his MAGA movement.

“You know, I see Biden talking about, ‘Oh, MAGA! MAGA!’ MAGA means Make America Great Again. That’s what it means. And that’s what people want,” Trump said to cheers from the crowd.

“They want to see our country be great again. Right now we’re not a great country. We’re a country in decline. We are a declining country,” he added.
