Trump Tells Hannity He Won’t Be a ‘Dictator’ If Elected – ‘Except For Day One’

Former President Donald Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity that he would only be a “dictator” on “day one” in the White House after Hannity asked him to pledge to “never abuse power as retribution against anybody.”

During Fox News’ town hall with Trump on Tuesday, Hannity said, “We almost have to go to a break. I want to go back to this one issue though because the media has been focused on this and attacking you.”

Hannity then asked, “Under no circumstances, you are promising America tonight, you would never abuse power as retribution against anybody?”

Except for day one,” replied Trump, before telling the audience, “Look, he’s going crazy.”

Trump repeated, “Except for day one.”

After Hannity asked Trump what he meant by that, Trump said, “I want to close the border and I want to drill, drill, drill.”

“That’s not retribution,” Hannity pointed out.

Trump continued, “We love this guy. He says, ‘You’re not gonna be a dictator, are you?’ I said, ‘No, no, no, other than day one.’ We’re closing the border and we’re drilling, drilling, drilling. After that, I’m not a dictator, ok?”

Hannity concluded, “That sounds to me like you’re going back to the policies when you were president.”

Trump laughed and said, “That’s exactly–” as the town hall cut to commercials.

In March, at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump told his supporters, “I am your warrior, I am your justice. And for those who have been wronged and betrayed, I am your retribution.”
