Trump interview: ‘We can’t have a president on cocaine when you’re dealing with nuclear weapons’

Commentary by Wayne Allyn Root, July 20, 2023

I’m proud and honored to call former President Donald J. Trump a friend. And even more proud that I just had an exclusive interview with the 45th president of the United States. It was my 12th interview since he came down that famous Trump Tower escalator in June 2015.

I always quote the boxing promoter Don King: “Only in America.” I’m a S.O.B. (son of a butcher) who has interviewed the President of the United States twelve times (including 4 times in the past year). God bless America.

Now to the Trump interview.

Here are the highlights. I started the interview with a revelation. The man is the most popular human being on planet Earth. I’m a witness.

‘Biden and his people are bad people. Not just incompetent. Bad people. Who would want an open border? They know what they’re doing.’

This past Friday night I was dining with my wife Cindy at our favorite restaurant in Las Vegas when in walked Donald J. Trump. A mob scene started immediately. The entire restaurant exploded with joy and screams of “You’re the greatest,” “You’re the GOAT,” “We love you, Mr. President” and “USA, USA, USA.”

We see this at Trump rallies, and GOP events, and conservative conferences. But this wasn’t a Trump rally or a GOP event. This was a public restaurant in Las Vegas. Everyone, and I mean everyone — the entire restaurant, patrons and staff — all celebrated Trump, and all showed their love and support for Trump. These are the things the media won’t ever tell you or show you.

Trump is the most popular human being on this planet.

I asked Trump about this incredible reaction I had witnessed. Trump replied this reaction happens wherever he goes.

He feels it’s not just about his own popularity, but the comparison between his own four years of peace and prosperity versus the disaster we’ve all experienced in the past two and a half years of President Joe Biden. He believes the American people miss him and want him back!

The main theme of my interview was asking Trump about my latest commentary “President Trump, This Time One Rule: No More Mr. Nice Guy. No Mercy.” I told DJT that I received thousands of emails from my fans after this commentary, and they all agree: He was too nice in his first term. This time I advised, when you get back to D.C., we all want you to “fire them all, and indict them all. No more Mr. Nice Guy.”

Trump responded by taking the gloves off. Here are a few of his quotes…

  • “Joe Biden is a stone-cold crook… common thief… lowlife… and a stupid person.”
  • “Biden and his people are bad people. Not just incompetent. Bad people. Who would want an open border? They know what they’re doing.”

On the cocaine found in the White House recently, Trump said, “I think it’s probably for both of them (Hunter and Joe). Watch Joe. At the beginning of his speeches, he’s OK. By the end, he’s a disaster. He can’t find his way off the stage… They prop him (Joe) up. I think (the cocaine) is for both of them (Joe and Hunter). We can’t have a president on cocaine when you’re dealing with nuclear weapons… this is dangerous. This country has never been in danger like this… We have a man who has no clue what’s happening.”

Here are a few more of the main topics we covered…

I told DJT that when I last saw him at Mar-a-Lago two months ago, he looked tan, rested, healthy and confident. Since then, he’s been indicted by the feds and had a $3 million judgement against him in New York civil trial. How do you do it? How do you stay so healthy and confident while under attack 24/7?

His response showed his selflessness and his love for the American people.

I asked DJT if he will fire everyone and indict everyone this time around.

His response shows the change between President Trump the first time around and what we can expect in a second Trump term.

I asked DJT how he will win in 2024 when 2020 was clearly rigged and I don’t see many changes since then. What has changed, and how can you beat the rig this time?

His response shows he remains confident in a 2024 victory.

I asked DJT about the GOP primary and his massive lead versus Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

His response made it clear he’s no fan of DeSantis.

I asked DJT if and when he returns to the White House how will he handle Russia/Ukraine and China/Taiwan.

Trump had a quick and confident answer for how he would deescalate both dangerous and frightening situations quickly.

Finally, I asked DJT why he was in my hometown of Las Vegas.

Trump clearly loves Vegas. And we love him!

For all those answers and more, you’ll have to tune into my full interview — on my TV show, “America’s Top Ten Countdown with Wayne Allyn Root” at noon ET on Saturday on Real America’s Voice TV network. Or go to You’ll find it there 24/7.

Thank God Trump is still confident, positive, healthy and fighting relentlessly. He truly is superhuman.

God Bless President Trump. And God bless America.
