In Latest Speech, Trump Says He’s Not Undermining US Democracy; He’s ‘The One Trying To Save It’
During a recent speech at the North Carolina Republican Party Convention over the weekend, former President Donald Trump lashed out at the mainstream media for saying he’s trying to “undermine American democracy,” going on to declare “I’m the one that’s trying to save it.”
“They want to silence you; they want to silence your voice,” Trump went on to say.
“Remember, I am not the one trying to undermine American democracy. I’m the one that’s trying to save it. Please remember that,” he continued.
Trump called for election integrity measures, including signature verification, voter identification, and regulation on Big Tech funding like Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s hundreds of millions for election drop boxes in the past presidential election.
“We all know what happened with the election, and we can never, ever let that happen again,” Trump said.
Trump said America under Biden is heading to a dictatorship, although he mocked the current president for not even being the one in charge.
“We’re not going to have a country if you don’t have election integrity, and if you don’t have strong borders, our country can be run like a dictatorship, and that’s what they’d like to do,” Trump said. “I don’t even think Biden is the dictator.
“If anybody knows who the hell is running that operation could you let us know? Because I don’t think it’s Joe. But who the hell knows? Maybe it is. Maybe it is,” the former president said.
“It’s great to be back in Greenville, with so many proud North Carolina patriots who love our country, support our military, respect our police, honor our flag, and always put America first,” Trump said at the beginning of his speech. “We don’t put America’s second. As we gather tonight, our country is being destroyed before our very own eyes. Crime is exploding. Police departments are being ripped apart and defunded.”
Trump then went on to slam Biden’s policies by saying, “Speaking of our leaders: They’re bowing down to China; America is being demeaned and humiliated on the world stage; our freedom is being overtaken by left wing cancel culture; and the Biden administration is pushing toxic critical race theory and illegal discrimination into our children’s schools.”
“Now you tell me: We take this?” he said.
Trump then called out the violent protests that left many areas located in American big cities in ashes last year, along with Democrats who “stick together.”
“They’re violent, in many cases, hate our country, and they have bad policy now,” Trump said. “Bad news. From our standpoint, they stick together. They don’t have some of the people like we have. Where they go on their own, and they do what they have to they stick together. And that’s the one thing they have. They stick together, but their policy is so bad.”
“And we’re going to have a tremendous 2022 just like we did – frankly 2020 think of it: more votes than any sitting president in the history of the United States by far – we had a great election. Bad things happened, but we had a great election,” he said.
