Trump Is Showing ‘All the Best’ of His Sides: Piers Morgan


‘I’ve always respected his remarkable ability to withstand the kind of pressure that would knock off any other public figure I know,’ Mr. Morgan said.

Former President Donald Trump is showing “all the best” of his sides and is expected to make a strong comeback, according to British host Piers Morgan after witnessing the former president’s historic win in the Iowa Caucus.

During an interview with Fox News on Jan. 19, Mr. Morgan pointed out to host Sean Hannity why the 45th president is so popular and will likely secure the GOP nominee for the 2024 White House race.

“He’s shown the charm. He’s shown the incredible resilience. He really is the comeback kid. I would have said a year ago, there was no chance he would have done what he did in Iowa,” Mr. Morgan said. “He also is showing that [he has a sense of] humor.”

On Jan. 15, in the Iowa Caucus, President Trump scored a landslide win with 51 percent, leading a margin of roughly 30 points over the second-place rival. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis claimed second place at 21 percent, and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley finished third with 19 percent. President Trump’s win set a new record for contested Iowa Republican caucuses, surpassing Bob Dole’s nearly 13-percentage-point victory in 1988.

“I noticed that he’s now stopped talking nearly so much about 2020, [he] is talking about 2024,” Mr. Morgan noted.

Mr. Morgan praised the former president for his ability to deal with tense pressure as he is facing multiple legal battles while campaigning for his presidential race.

“Donald Trump is not an angel, but nor is he a devil. And I’ve always respected his remarkable ability to withstand the kind of pressure that would knock off any other public figure I know,” Mr. Morgan said.

During the interview, he shared with host Hanity how he was impressed with how President Trump managed to recover from the global financial crisis in the late 1990s, during which many investors suffered losses.

“I’ve watched him do it again this year, when as charge after charge after charge has come at him. He has got stronger, and the polling for him has improved,” he said.

Mr. Morgan continued: “Even Republicans that don’t really like Donald Trump can see that there is a witch hunt element to all this, that the Democrats are trying to kill him off. But by doing so, they’re making him more popular.”

Mr. Morgan predicts the former president will win the GOP nomination, saying: “I think he’s pretty much got the nomination in the bag. I think he’s gonna win in New Hampshire and South Carolina quite comfortably. I think this is all over probably before Super Tuesday.”

In the interview, Mr. Morgan said while he disagreed with President Trump on many things, he emphasized the importance of respecting others’ views rather than demonizing them. He mentioned the CEO of JP Morgan Chase, Jamie Dimon, who recently said Democrats need to be more respectful when discussing President Trump’s supporters.

On Jan. 17, during an interview with CNBC, Mr. Dimon said Democrats are scapegoating Trump supporters, who he said aren’t voting for Trump because of his “family values” but because of his effectiveness in office.

“Just take a step back—be honest—he was kind of right about NATO, kind of right about immigration,” Mr. Dimon said. “He grew the economy quite well. Tax reform worked. He was right about some of China. … He wasn’t wrong about some of these critical issues, and that’s why they’re voting for him.”

Mr. Dimon said because these supporters are fellow citizens, Democrats should refrain from disparaging Trump voters as they have been doing. “This negative talk about MAGA is going to hurt Biden’s election campaign,” Mr. Dimon noted.

President Trump is currently campaigning in New Hampshire for the GOP primary there in four days. In the latest poll by Suffolk University, the former president is leading by more than 16 points over the former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley in the state.
Earlier in the day, the 45th president received an important endorsement from Senator Tim Scott (R-S.C.), a former GOP presidential candidate who dropped in November.
