Former President Donald Trump once again fired up a crowd during a “Save America” rally Saturday night in Youngstown, Ohio, before making a major prediction about the midterm elections.
With the crowd electrified, Trump slammed the “thugs and tyrants” who are attacking the MAGA movement while claiming that they have awakened a “sleeping giant,” according to Newsmax.
“They have no idea of the sleeping giant that they have awoken,” Trump said at one point. “The American people will never accept the corruption and the ruination of our beloved country, and that’s what they want to do.”
He described the Democrats’ policies as “mad,” but come Nov. 8, “we are going to vote in record numbers, and we are going to send these left-wing lunatics a message: They cannot cancel, silence, or ignore … all the abuse, all the smears, and all the attacks will not dissuade us. They will only make us stronger, much stronger. Much much stronger.”
Trump also alluded to the continuing investigations and legal actions directed at him by the Biden administration and Democratic officials in New York.
“No matter what our sick and deranged political establishment throw at me, no matter what they do to me, I will endure their torment and oppression, and I will do it very willingly,” he said. “They will never get me to stop fighting for you, the American people. And I will never quit because the fate of our country is at stake.”
The former president then blasted President Joe Biden for his Independence Hall speech in Philadelphia earlier this month in which he appeared to claim half the country were domestic threats.
“That was terrible,” said Trump, “but that’s where they’re coming from. But you know what? We’re strong and we’re smart. We’re smarter than them. We’re stronger than them.”
Democrats “view 75 million Americans as enemies to be canceled and suppressed,” Trump continued. “They want to censor you from the internet, banish you from the public square, get you fired from your jobs, target you for destruction with 87,000 new IRS agents.
“There’s more enthusiasm right now than there has ever been for the rallies and for everything, because you’ve seen what a horrible job they’ve done,” he noted.
In an early September speech in Wilkes Barr, Pa., Trump declared Biden’s remarks to be the “most vicious, hateful, and divisive speech ever delivered by a [U.S.] president.”
“You’re all enemies of the state,” he said as the crowd booed Biden. “He’s an enemy of the state if you want to know the truth. The enemy of the state is him and the group that control him, which is circling around him. ‘Do this, do that, Joe.’”
He added that Biden’s speech was nothing but “hatred and anger” before referencing the reddish background. “How’d you like the red lighting behind him like the devil?” he asked.
Previously, Trump noted on his Truth Social platform: “If you look at the words and meaning of the awkward and angry Biden speech tonight, he threatened America, including with the possible use of military force. He must be insane, or suffering from late stage dementia!”
“Someone should explain to Joe Biden, slowly but passionately, that MAGA means, as powerfully as mere words can get, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! If he doesn’t want to Make America Great Again, which through words, action, and thought, he doesn’t, then he certainly should not be representing the United States of America!” he noted further.
