Piers Morgan has said that he "misses" having Donald Trump as president and that he "didn't get enough credit."

The journalist and TV host made the comments during an interview on Sean Hannity's Fox News program on Monday, June 14.

Morgan explained that Trump deserves praise for his "forceful personality" and his ability to "cut through the bureaucracy and cut to the quick about issues."

Watch Morgan's interview with Hannity below: 

Despite Trump's behavior getting him banned from every major social media platform, Morgan said that his "hard-line" on China impressed him.

He told Hannity: "What I did like about him [Trump] was his forceful personality enabling him to cut through a lot of bureaucracy and cut to the quick about issues - and NATO was a good example.

"Everybody knows that most NATO countries don't pay their bills, we know that because Donald Trump shone a light on that inequity. That it was unfair that America should carry that for so many underpaying European countries.

"He was absolutely right about that. He was also right about the threat of China. Go back two or three years and Joe Biden doesn't think China is a threat. Suddenly he does."

He went on: "Donald Trump has been calling out China for 30 years. So there were lots of things which I felt Donald Trump didn't get enough credit for.

"Which Joe Biden because he is a liberal, and Democrat president, gets too much credit for now. I don't think he is held to the same account by the media in America that Donald Trump was.

"And I think that is a plain and obvious fact. And that is not good for the US media. You should be able to hold your own to account."

Morgan then referred to Biden's recent visit to the UK and lamented how it lacked the unpredictability of a Trump visit.

Morgan continued: "It wasn't the noise and chaos and unpredictability of a President Trump visit, which personally I rather missed actually.

"He enlivened these dreary affairs where everyone gets together and says boring platitudes.

"And when dealing with China and Russia, NATO, every issue out there from the pandemic to climate change, whatever - I'm not sure people want a calm America that isn't taking dynamic, proactive action.

"I'm not sure people want a calm American who isn't taking dynamic action."
