Trump: ‘Radical Democrats Want to Destroy Our Country As We Know it’

Leah Millis/Reuters

President Donald Trump took aim at his Democratic opponents, during his rally on Thursday night, claiming that they “want to destroy America as we know it”:

“The radical Democrats want to destroy America as we know it. They want to indoctrinate our children and teach them that America is a sinful, wicked nation.”

Watch his comments below

He continued his charge saying Democrats want to “shred our Constitution”:

“They want to disarm law-abiding citizens — they want to take your guns away. And they want to install far-left judges to shred our Constitution. They want to tear down symbols of faith and drive Christians and religious believers from the public square. They want to silence your voices on social media. And they want to government to censor, muzzle, and shut down conservative voices — you know that. If they didn’t hate our country, they wouldn’t be doing this to our country.”

Trump claimed Democrats are trying to “overthrow the results of a great, great election.”:

“For three straight years, radical Democrats have been trying to overthrow the results of a great, great election — maybe the greatest election in the history of our country. And they want to impose an extreme agenda. They cannot pass it, and they cannot win it at the ballot box… so they say ‘Let’s see, what’s another idea? What’s another idea? How do we win this election?”

He hit Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke over his pledge to pass a mandatory gun back law and his call for religious institutions to lose their tax-exempt privileges if they don’t perform same-sex marriages:

“In a few short weeks, he got rid of guns and got rid of religion. That doesn’t work.”

On Wednesday, he tweeted that there is “no way” any of the Democratic presidential candidates be president.

Too late for the “radical democrats to destroy our country as we know it.” Trump has already done it.

“” Thanks for the tip, Phyllis. As you can see, posting a link surrounded by double-quotes gets around the censorship and approval problems at IJR. “The cumulative result is a Grand New Party that is literally unrecognizable.” Matt Lewis Matt confirmed a number of comments you and a few others here keep saying, including that the GOP is nothing of what it used to be. It is now just a parody of its old self. He also repeats that the cult members (yes, CULT members) are gaslighting themselves. We have known this for a while, too, and you have said… Read more »



UP voted your comment of 10/19 to which I'd like to add for the Socialist puppets who are wasting their time pushing their failed ideology on the intelligent members here: "The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not." President Thomas Jefferson: Term: 1801-1809.

Appears even back then there were those who proposed everything is FREE just like the Socialists/Communists of today have in their vote getting, sucker basket of pipe dreams.


“SO, explain why you are still here? For a guy that complains about people that like “free stuff” you could be subscribing to a site that charges you to repeat your talking points. IJR also has no requirement that you read EVERY free article they provide.”

I normally do not indulge the mentally ill or TDS.
It’s clear you have NO sense of self-awareness, being a “freeloader” yourself. I can complain. If Alex Skatel does not like it he can fix it or bar me. IJR gets paid in traffic. You have no idea how the internet works.

General, I posted the link to Matt’s story. It will take IJR some time to approve it. I did not initially give the title as I knew the ones that need to read it, won’t. The title is “The Bulls–t you have to believe to be a Republican in 2019.” Matt is a Tea Party Evangelical Republican.

Matt Lewis has an excellent article in the Daily Beast today. You folks should read it.



IJR is dysfunctional. It recycles hack, partisan crap from Reuters as content. The discussions lack rules, process, or moderation. Its cardinal sin is that it’s not informative and boring. There are much better sources readily available.

As far as logging on, I’ve had to go through at least two and verification each time. For months. You are not alone and it’s also why my time is better spent elsewhere.


Once again, can’t upvote an article IJR – Trump is right. The dems will do anything to try to hold on or gain power. They care not for this country or her citizens. They are power hungry, their thirst is real. They want global governance and know America must be destroyed, our constitution must be destroyed, for that to happen. It’s why they are going after 1 & 2 A so hard. You know, the first and second things that our founding fathers realized without our nation would fail.
