Piers Morgan Admits He 'Misses' The Days When Donald Trump Was President

Piers Morgan has admitted that he 'misses' they days when Donald Trump was the President of the United States and says that he 'didn't get enough credit' for the work that he did while in office.

Morgan reserved praise for The Donald's 'forceful personality' and his ability to 'cut through the bureaucracy and cut to the quick about issues.'

Again, it really depends on what those 'issues' were, but even the most ardent Trump hater couldn't argue that he didn't get straight to whatever point it was he was trying to make that day.

Usually in all capital letters on one of the social media platforms that he's now banned from.

Piers was speaking out on Sean Hannity's Fox News programme on Monday night when he admitted that he misses the presidency of the Republican Trump.

He also said that Trump's 'hard line' on China impressed him.

Morgan 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."

The former Good Morning Britain presenter went on to talk about President Joe Biden's recent visit to the UK for the G7 summit, adding another dimension to his admiration for the ex-President.

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."
