Former President Donald Trump released an official statement commemorating the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, promising that a "wonderful future lies ahead."
Trump, who served in the White House from January 2017 to January 2021, continues to falsely claim that the 2020 election was "rigged" or "stolen" in favor of President Joe Biden. While many of his recent official statements continue to promote that conspiracy theory or attack his political opponents, his Thanksgiving message struck a more optimistic tone. However, it also suggested the country was on the wrong track.
"A very interesting time in our Country, but do not worry, we will be great again—and we will all do it together. America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction. Too many generations of greatness are counting on us. Enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!" the former president said in the statement, which was posted to Twitter by his spokesperson Liz Harrington.
