Last night at a rally in Orlando, Florida, thousands watched President Donald Trump officially kick off his re-election campaign, share how Justice Brett Kavanaugh was treated by a Democrat controlled Congress, and then ask the crowd to imagine Democrats controlling America in 2020.
President Trump said, “Look at what they did to a great gentleman, Justice (Brett) Kavanaugh, highly respected. They didn’t just try to win. They tried to destroy him with false and malicious accusations. They tried to ruin the family of now Justice Kavanaugh. They tried to ruin his career. They tried to ruin his life. They even wanted to impeach him on fraudulent charges. Those charges were a fraud. He did nothing wrong. All in pursuit of political domination and control. Just imagine what this angry left-wing mob would do if they were in charge of this country. Imagine if we had a Democrat president and a Democrat Congress in 2020.”
Meanwhile, speaking to a bar room full at NYC’s Stonewall Inn also on Tuesday, Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden extolled the bravery of the tavern’s patrons 50 years ago and how the American public suddenly realized that these folks are just like me.
Candidate Biden said, “But imagine the courage it took 50 years ago to stand up and say ‘I’m gay. I’m trans. I’m whatever, I’m lesbian.’ You know when people started it when people had the courage to come out and stand up and speak, say who they were, all of a sudden people realized, whoa these folks are just like me. They’re just like me. They are ordinary, decent honorable people. The public is way ahead of the politicians on this. They’re way ahead on marriage and they’re way ahead on the basic rights that every American should have. And I’m really proud of the folks in here and the courage it took for what they did, it they started it 50 years ago.”
Back at the rally in Orlando, the president explained to the crowd that in order to get votes, Democrats will compromise free speech, weaponize the law, and flood the country with illegal aliens.
The president said, “They would shut down your free speech. Use the power of the law to punish their opponents, which they’re trying to do now anyway. They’ll always be trying to shield themselves. They would strip Americans of their constitutional rights, while flooding the country with illegal immigrants in the hopes it will expand their political base. And they’ll get votes some place down the future. That’s what it’s about.”
