Former President Donald Trump is warning Americans that they won’t “have a country anymore” if they don’t vote for him in the November presidential election.

During an interview on “One Nation” with Fox News host Brian Kilmeade, Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, weighed in on a variety of topics — including his anticipated rematch with Democratic opponent President Joe Biden on November 5.

“The most important day in the history of our country is going to be November 5,” Trump said. “Our country is going bad. And it’s going to be changed on November 5, and if it’s not changed we’re not going to have a country anymore.”

During the segment, one of the topics Trump discussed was Truth Social, the former president’s social media website.

On Friday, the shareholders of Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG) and Digital World Acquisition Corp. (DWAC), an established shell company, decided to merge, paving the path for the former president’s business to go public.

Truth Social, a social media platform developed two years ago as a rival to Facebook and Twitter, is currently operated by the new organization.

Wall Street estimates that TMTG is worth $9 billion.

With a 58 percent ownership, Trump would be the first American president to hold a major position in a publicly traded company should he win the presidency in November. He has previously had stocks available for purchase, though.

In his interview with the Fox News host, Trump discussed the merger and Truth Social.

Kilmeade asked Trump, “You probably got an extra $5 billion in your checking account, What does that mean to you?”

“Truth has been amazing, Trump said.

“It gave me a voice. And when I was terminated from Twitter, it was vicious, and then all of a sudden I didn’t have a voice. And now it’s public. And the stock has gone through the roof. And really this is, I think in the true sense, this is really a great sign of where the people in this country stand. I view it as a poll. And I call it the voice. It’s the voice of America. It’s my voice,” Trump added.

Trump got another round of good news last week after a new poll found that many self-described Democrats support his disruptive political style.

According to a series of polls conducted by Harvard CAPS/Harris, there has been a notable uptick in the number of Democrats who view Trump more favorably rather than as “a danger to democracy” who would exacerbate divisions within the United States, Newsweek reported.

“The pollster’s March survey found that 33 percent of Democrats say Trump will shake up the country for the better, a three-point uptick from February’s poll and a five-point increase from January’s poll. Comparatively, the number of Democrats who see Trump as ‘a danger to democracy and will hopelessly divide the country if elected’ has decreased from 72 percent in January to 70 percent in February and 67 percent in March,” the outlet noted.

Newsweek added:

The trend casts a shadow over recent polls that have signaled good news for President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign. The Democrat has been able to make significant gains against Trump in several swing states over the last six months, suggesting that Biden could make a comeback, even as their rematch tightens.

That said, several polls have shown Trump ahead of or tied with Biden in most swing states since the beginning of the year.

Polling has not been good for Biden.

In a separate USA TODAY/Suffolk University poll, Trump defeated Biden 40% to 38%, drawing a near-tie in a volatile electorate as the candidates get underway.

A sizable portion of voters were dissatisfied with their options and receptive to being convinced, according to the first USA TODAY survey conducted since the two candidates secured their presidential nominations.

“Nearly eight months out, the election is not set yet. One in four of those surveyed said they might change their minds before November. That unsettled sentiment was bipartisan, including 14% of Biden voters and 15% of Trump voters,” USA Today reported.
