President Trump Gives Fiery Speech But Did You Catch His Ominous Warning?
President Donald Trump was in campaign form on Saturday night as he took aim at many of his enemies in a rally that had its share of fireworks.
In his opening salvo the president took aim at Democrats and the mainstream media as he laced into the annual White House Correspondents Dinner which he snubbed to do his own rally in Washington, Michigan.
“You may have heard I was invited to another event tonight — the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” he said. “but I’d much rather be in Washington, Michigan, than in Washington, DC right now. That I can tell you.”
He continued his assault on the media when he moved on to the burgeoning peace between North and South Korea that is directly related to the unprecedented sanctions he put on North Korea and the pressure he has put on China. But, as he noted, the media is loath to give him any credit for it.
The crowd began to chant “Nobel,” a reference to the Nobel Peace Prize that former President Obama got in his first year in office for seemingly no reason, and an award many of President Trump’s supporters think he deserves for his work with North Korea.
“That’s very nice, ‘Nobel,'” he said, smiling. “I just want to get the job done.” The crowd cheered his uncharacteristic humility before the president lamented the media’s coverage of his role.
Remember what they were saying? He’s going to get us into nuclear war, they said,” he said. “No, no, no — strength is going to keep us out of nuclear war, not going to get us in.”
“I had one of the fake news groups this morning, they were saying, ‘what do you think President Trump had to do with it?’” he said. “I’ll tell you what, like how about everything?”
And as the president took shots at many Democrat targets, including Sens. Chuck Schumer and Debbie Stabenow, he saved his most ominous warning for Sen. John Tester who, it appears, created lies to keep President trump’s pick for VA Secretary, Dr. Ronny Jackson, from getting the job.
“I know things about Tester that I could say, too. And if I said ’em, he’d never be elected again,” the president said, leaving many to wonder what he meant.
One thing is for certain. President Trump is far more in his element with his base at these rallies than he is in a room of journalists in Washington D.C. And no matter what Democrats believe they can do in the 2018 and 2020 elections, they need to keep in mind that President Trump on the campaign trail is extremely effective.
