Donald Trump has predicted that "we're not going to have a country left in three years" as he bemoaned the state of the US since the Biden administration took charge.

He made the ominous statement during an appearance on Sean Spicer's Newsmax show on Tuesday, September 14.

As reported by the Independent, the ex-POTUS told Spicer that the US "has gone really downhill in the last eight months like nobody has ever seen before".

"And you go to these elections coming up in '22 and '24 - we're not going to have a country left. The election was rigged and we're not going to have a country left in three years, I'll tell you that," Trump falsely stated, repeating his usual unfounded claims of election fraud.

Following the former president's very passionate statement, Spicer, who had previously served as Trump's press secretary, swiftly brought the interview to an end, telling the Republican: "You’ve been very generous with your time, thank you for that."

Newsmax is at the center of a $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems (DVS) after the latter claimed that the conservative media outlet spread untruths in relation to so-called election fraud involving the DVS's voting machines in the 2020 election.

However, Newsmax has said in its defense that it "simply reported on allegations made by well-known public figures".

In an interview with the Washington Examiner over the summer, Spicer backed claims that the 75-year-old ex-president would run for office again, telling the paper: "A couple of months ago, I wasn’t sure. Now, there needs to be something that will keep him out."

In his interview with Trump, Spicer said: "Mr. Biden has sought to kick off 11 of your appointees to service academies, including my appointment to the US Naval Academy."

He then asked Trump: "If you ran for president again and won, excluding the statutory boards, would you kick off every Biden presidential appointee?"

In response, the former reality star said that he might "because what [Biden] did is unprecedented".

"We have great people on the boards, for them to be thrown off — it never happened before," he continued. "[The Biden administration] are vicious people, that’s what they are good at. They use prosecutors all over the place, local prosecutors, federal prosecutors, and yet Hunter Biden [Joe Biden’s second son] is fine."

Trump has teased running for president in 2024 a number of times since losing out to his Democratic counterpart President Joe Biden.

In July, he revealed that he had made up his mind about whether or not he would, indeed, campaign for his spot at the White House - although he did not disclose what he had decided on.
