In a recent episode of her show on Fox News, prominent host Laura Ingraham took a critical stance against former President Donald Trump’s persistent emphasis on the controversial 2020 election.
According to Ingraham, it’s time for Trump to stop ‘whining’ about the past.
In a no-holds-barred address during the latest episode of The Ingraham Angle, Fox News host Laura Ingraham made a passionate appeal to Donald Trump, urging him to shift his focus towards the future. She implored him to abstain from further discussions about the 2020 election if he intends to secure victory in the upcoming 2024 presidential election.
In her resolute address, Ingraham emphasized that dwelling on the past would fail to garner new supporters and might even weaken his existing base.
Furthermore, she contended that making derogatory remarks about popular Republican governors or senators in crucial states is not only unwise but could also prove to be self-destructive.

Campaign by trials — it’s happening again and it’s even worse than, let’s say, six months ago, because now President Biden knows that we know that he knows he’s losing it.
I’m going to offer my free advice to both Trump and DeSantis — both will probably be unhappy, but there you have it. As someone who’s covered seven previous presidential campaigns and worked for President Reagan, I think it’s time that both of you candidates remember a few things. First, to Gov. DeSantis. The voters in Ohio and Arizona, Pennsylvania — they don’t know you very well, but they don’t want to hear a litany of Florida accomplishments at this point, as great as they are.
They want to know that you’re going to be able to defeat Biden on the issue that is number one: the economy. So, talk about the economy. What are your specific solutions to protect American jobs and bring down the price of energy? Smile, also. Have fun out there. Don’t be afraid to show your personality and ask the people what’s on their minds. I promise you it will not be Disney or Bud Light, and as for President Trump, keep your eye on the prize: 270 electoral votes. Everything you say, everything you do, should be geared to winning in the states you need to win.
This should be a 50-state campaign for America. Attacking popular Republican governors or senators and battleground states is more than unwise. It’s self-destructive. Why do it? Voters in a general election want to vote for a winner, not a whiner. So please, for the love of God, stop talking about 2020.
That will not bring a single voter out to support you who didn’t support you before. You need to grow the pot, not shrink it. Be magnanimous and be the elder statesman that Biden is not obviously capable of. That will reassure people, and look, your policies worked before, they’re going to work again. The Democrats are banking on these trials and they’re banking on a distracted electorate to pull Biden over the finish line. Hey guys, let’s not let them get away with that.
Ingraham’s argument raises some concerns, to say the least. While her call to “stop talking about 2020” may appeal to some, it overlooks the fundamental importance of accountability and transparency within the democratic process.
Moreover, Ingraham’s appeal to Trump, urging him to “be magnanimous and be the elder statesman,” raises questions about her perspective on leadership.
To equate silence with magnanimity is to ignore the pressing concerns of many Americans who are seeking answers about the integrity of our elections.
At the heart of a thriving democracy lies the essence of questioning, investigating, and scrutinizing, rather than silencing and forgetting.
