President Donald Trump said that in the Nov. 3 election, voters will decide whether they want the “American dream” or a “socialist hellhole.”
In an interview Tuesday on the “Fox & Friends”, the president stressed that the differences between him and Democratic candidate Joe Biden are substantial.
“Whether it’s Second Amendment or energy or all of these things—they want to raise your taxes, I want to lower your taxes, regulations, all of that,” he said.
“But the bottom line: the American Dream. The great American Dream versus being a socialist hellhole,” he summed up.
President Trump remarked that if Biden wins the elections in the United States would be “no different than Venezuela,” a country that for more than 20 years has suffered the economic, social, health, and cultural consequences of socialist policies.
“Venezuela 20 years ago was unbelievable. (…) And now they don’t have water, they don’t have food, they don’t have medicine. (…) The only difference is, we’d be much bigger. (…) But that’s what it is. It’s the American Dream against a socialist hellhole,” he said.
the president said that a Biden administration would lead to “socialized medicine.”
Democratic leaders, including former presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, have called for a universal health care plan for all Americans.
“They want you to go to a hospital if you have a cold—take away your health care,” President Trump said, arguing why he opposes those proposals.
Law & Order
President Trump also spoke about one of the big issues on the campaign trail, which is the violent street riots that have broken out in several U.S. cities following the death of African American George Floyd
Unlike Biden, President Trump has openly declared himself in favor of maintaining “law and order.”
“They want to take away your guns, defund your police, or at least radically change your police,” the president said in reference to police budget cuts in cities governed by Democratic mayors.
Last month, the Chicago Police Union endorsed the president’s re-election bid, adding to the support the organization had already given him nationally.
“President Trump has shown time after time that he supports our law enforcement officers and understands the issues our members face every day,” FOP National President Patrick Yoes said in early September.
“The FOP is proud to endorse a candidate who calls for law and order across our nation. He has the full and enthusiastic support of the FOP,” said Yoes.
In July, the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) also declared it support for the re-election of President Donald Trump.
It is worth noting that the NAPO endorsed Democrat Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 (in 2016 it did not endorse any candidate), whose running mate was Joe Biden.
But this time it has chosen President Trump in recognition of his “steadfast and very public support for our men and women on the front lines, especially during this time of unfair and inaccurate opprobrium being directed at our members by so many.”
