During a recent speech at the New York Young Republican’s Club 111th annual gala, former President Donald Trump called on the crowd to help him retake America in 2024 and turn it back into a free nation, something that he argues has not been the case under the current American political class.
During the portion of the speech on what Trump called his “righteous crusade,” Trump first characterized his political opponents and the current rulers of America as “very corrupt” people who are both incompetent and inveterate America-haters.
He said, “Unlike crooked Joe Biden, I’m running to liberate America. We want to liberate America because we’re in a country that’s in a lot of pain right now, a lot of hurt. This campaign is a righteous crusade to rescue our nation from a very corrupt political class. They are corrupt. They’re incompetent, and they probably hate our country.”
Continuing, the former president rehearsed the long list of grievances that many on the MAGA right have about the ruling elites, particularly the economic consequences of globalism, the out of control crime that has dominated headlines in recent years, and the increasingly problematic drug addiction epidemic that has taken America’s communities by storm.
He said, “No longer will the men and women of America pay tribute to the people who threw open our borders, flooded our communities with deadly drugs, sold our jobs to China and other foreign countries, colluded with the big banks, conspired with corporate media, corrupted our government and unleashed murderers, rapists, and gang members, savages all to prey on innocent people that walk the streets of our cities.”
Then, Trump presented himself as the solution to those issues, saying that while the ruling elites want Americans to be in a dark place, mentally and physically, he’s ready to sweep back into the White House and make things better again.
As he put it: “They want Americans to be weakened, poor, confused, divided, and afraid. Why’d they want that? I don’t know. The only thing I can’t figure out is why they want that. I don’t know. If you put me back in the White House, however, the reign will be over, and America will be a free nation once again it will be a free nation.”
Watch him here:
Commenting on his Republican opposition in a post on Truth Social, Trump said, “So many people are asking what I thought of history’s lowest rated “presidential” debate, & how would I rate the players. It’s so easy to be a critic, but who on this subject would be better than me. To begin with, I thought Ron DeSanctimonious was terrible, with his bobble head facial movements & his walking on eggs, but that Sloppy Chris Christie was worse. He’s not fit, mentally or physically, to be President plus, he suffers from TDS, or Trump Derangement Syndrome, at levels not seen before. In other words, he is a “sick puppy.” On top of it all, his poll numbers are just 1%, in a class with “Aida” Hutchinson. He’s dead, but so is Ron, whose weird bobbing head and fresh mouth, make his high heels look good – He’s walking on eggs! Birdbrain looked different & lost, but I give her second place. Vivek WINS because he thinks l’m great. The biggest loser was Megyn Kelly, what the hell happened to her? She has lost whatever she once had, which wasn’t very much. Some things never change!“
