Donald Trump got serious for a moment.

It was a side of Trump voters don’t normally see.

And Donald Trump told Laura Ingraham the awful reason he never smiles.

Donald Trump’s campaign in 2016 was known for being a good time.

Rarely has a candidate enjoyed running for President as much as Trump did that year.

 He would crack jokes and perform a stand-up routine for the thousands at his rallies.

But this go-round is different.

At a town hall event in South Carolina, Fox News host Laura Ingraham asked Trump if Americans would see more of his sense of humor as the campaign shifted into general election mode.

Trump surprised Ingraham by saying he couldn’t find much to joke about thanks to President Joe Biden’s wide open southern border that let more illegal aliens into America than live in the population of 36 states.

“We have a country that’s dying,” Trump stated. “We have a country that’s – it’s a failing nation. I say it in my speeches, it’s a failing nation. We have a nation in decline. We are a nation in decline. I just don’t think it’s a subject that we are smiling too much about. When I see 18 million by the time he leaves, I think that’s going to be the number, 18 million people coming in from places unknown.”

Trump discussed the human toll Joe Biden’s unchecked illegal immigration took on America pointing to the family of Maddie Hines.

Hines was a three-year-old girl killed instantly in a car crash where the other driver was an illegal alien.

Trump said it was heart-wrenching tales like that prevented him from smiling on the campaign trail as he knew the crisis America faced under Biden was far more serious than what he encountered eight years ago.

“We have no idea who they are, but they are terrorists. We are going to have massive terrorism. We are going to have a big problem with terrorists, we’re going to have a lot of problems and especially the bad ones and remember what I said, the local police force,” Trump added. “You have a great family right there, the Hines family sitting in the front row. They lost their daughter to an illegal alien who came in, and we threw him out and he was gone and he came back in and their daughter was killed by an illegal immigrant that came in during the Biden administration. So sad.”
