Liz Truss Endorses Trump's 2024 Bid, Claims World Was Safer Under His Presidency

Former British Prime Minister Liz Truss has endorsed Donald Trump to win the 2024 US presidential election, stating that the world was safer when he was in the White House. Truss, who served as Prime Minister for just 49 days, criticized incumbent President Joe Biden, saying he has not been supportive of the UK and is often on the side of the EU.

In her new book, 'Ten Years to Save the West', Truss claimed that Trump's economic policies were 'very effective', as he cut regulation, taxes, and liberated the US energy supply, leading to higher economic growth in the US compared to the UK. She also said that Trump was more effective at preventing aggressive regimes from expanding.

Why this matters: Truss's endorsement of Trump comes as he faces his first of four criminal trials in New York, where he is the presumptive Republican nominee. Her comments also highlight the ongoing debate about the role of the US in global affairs and its relationship with allies like the UK.

Truss's endorsement of Trump is a departure from the convention that senior British politicians stay out of US elections. However, she believes that her opponents feared the Trump presidency more than the Democrats under Biden. Truss also praised Trump's policies towards Iran and China, as well as his support for Ukraine, including the sale of anti-tank Javelin missiles.

In her book, Truss defended her disastrous mini-budget that sent the pound into a nosedive, arguing that her economic plan was undermined by organizations like the Bank of England and the Office of Budget Responsibility. She has called for the resignation of the Bank of England governor and the abolition of the UK's Supreme Court and Human Rights Act.

Despite the backlash she faced during her brief tenure as Prime Minister, Truss remains a lawmaker and plans to run for re-election, saying she has 'unfinished business'. Her media onslaught has been described as a transformation into a 'radical right-wing populist' by a politics professor.

Truss's endorsement of Trump comes as he faces multiple criminal cases, including accusations of falsifying business records and hoarding top-secret documents. However, she believes that the 'deep state' will try to bring down Trump if he is victorious in the election, as they did with her during her time as Prime Minister.
