The ex-president says he wants to “Make America Great Again, Again”
ドナルド・トランプ is back in campaign mode, with just as little of an understanding of irony as ever.
The former president held his first major campaign rally of 2022 in Florence, アリゾナ, where he returned to number of his favourite talking points, as well rolled out new conspiracies, outrageous claims, and rambling, non-specific points. He also promised to “Make America Great Again, Again.”
彼のスピーチに先立って, the latest steps towards a potential 2024, presidential comeback, a reporter from Newsmax asked Mr Trump what he wanted to communicate to the country.
“It’s a message of love. Our country is going to hell,トランプ氏は言った.
他の場所, the reporter asked the former president what Republicans should do if they take back Congress, and Mr Trump had little to offer by way of specifics.
“Number one, take it back, that’s what has to be number one," 彼は言った. “These are radicalised, horrible people who hate our country," 彼が追加した, speaking of his political opponents.
The former president also railed against Dr アンソニー・ファウチ そして ジョー・バイデン’s handling of the Covid crisis, arguing the two had done a “horrible job” stopping Covid, while also arguing to open the country further because “the mandates are a disaster and people just aren’t working.
Before he ran for president, Mr Trump suggested many immigrants from Mexico were rapists and drug dealers, and he continued this contempt for immigration, 主張する. “The United States is a dumping ground for a lot of people that are not the people we want.”
During his speech itself, Mr Trump leaned more on the “going to hell” part of his agenda than the “message of love.”
Despite many recounts, partisan audits, and numerous failed election challenge lawsuits, Mr Trump continued to argue, without valid evidence, that he had actually won the election.
“The Big Lie is a lot of bulls***,” he said. “I ran twice and we won twice and we did better the second time. We did much better the second time.”
He also made the claim, again without proof, that liberal states are keeping the vaccine from white people.
“The left is now rationing lifesaving therapeutics based on race, discriminating against and denigrating, just denigrating, white people to determine who lives and who dies," 彼は言った. “If you’re white, you don’t get the vaccine, or if you’re white, you don’t get therapeutics.”
