( – During his Wednesday campaign stop in Waukesha, Wisconsin, former President Donald Trump highlighted the economic failures of the Biden administration.

Wednesday’s campaign stop marked Trump’s first-weekday campaign appearance outside of New York since the start of his criminal trial regarding allegedly falsifying business records to conceal a $130,000 hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

The trial began on April 15.

Addressing the boisterous crowd at the Waukesha County Expo Center, Trump insisted that when he returns to the White House, the “Biden economic bust” would be replaced by the “Trump economic boom.”

The former President noted that upon leaving the White House, he transferred the “fastest economic recovery” which included the stock market being at a “record high” and the cost of gas “$2 and even less than that a gallon” to Biden.

He went on to point to his other economic achievements while in office, like the “30-year mortgage rate” being at a “record low” at 2.65 percent, while highlighting that now, under Biden’s administration, the mortgage rate was 8 — even 9 — percent.

Trump, who leads the Republican nomination by a landslide, turned his focus to Biden’s latest budget proposal, which includes hiking tax revenue by $5 trillion, something he expects to do by increasing capital gains tax to 44.5 percent, which would make it the highest in U.S. history. The former President noted that if Biden would get another term in office, his policies would “drench the middle class in the largest tax increases” in U.S. history.
