During his latest Save America rally in Casper, Wyoming, former President Donald Trump condemned Biden’s “breathtaking failure,” comparing the current state of the country to where the U.S. stood while he was in office.
Americans voting in the upcoming November midterms simply need to assess where they were a few years ago under his leadership compared to now, according to the former president.
“The contrast between the Trump administration’s success and Joe Biden’s breathtaking failure could not be more stark,” Trump told the rally on Saturday night. “Compare how great America was just two years ago. Think of it compared with today.”
“Two years ago, look, where we were doing things that nobody thought possible,” he added. “And then three years ago, it was even beyond, and then we got hit with the crap that came out of China, the China virus.”
This event was the first rally following a few weeks’ hiatus for the former president, and it wasn’t just any other “Save America rally.” This one was special, as Trump was stumping for Wyoming House GOP primary candidate Harriet Hageman, who is running to oust “RINO” (Republican in Name Only) Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), a congresswoman who is especially loathed by ‘America First’ conservatives.
“Over the next six months, the people of Wyoming are going to vote to dump your RINO congresswoman Liz Cheney,” he said. “And you’re going to send the incredible Harriet Hageman to Congress, and together we are going to end crazy Nancy Pelosi’s political career once and for all. Crazy Nancy; she’s crazy.”
Trump opened the event with a targeted attack on Cheney for “warmongering” and being “America last.”
“When I was there, we were respected,” the former president said regarding his time in office. “Nobody was going to war with us. Nobody, OK? We didn’t have to go to war for people to know that we were the toughest and we were the strongest. We did it in a much different way.”
“She’s the face of the Washington swamp and the same failed foreign policy of the Clintons, Bushes, the Obamas, Bidens, and the entire sick political establishment,” he added.
Hageman is beating Cheney easily, with recent polling showing her up by 30 points.
“I am going to reclaim Wyoming’s lone congressional seat from that Virginian who owns it,” Hageman told the crowd before Trump took the stage.
During his speech, Trump described Hageman’s primary as “the most important” one in the entire country.
“Wyoming, all of America is counting on you,” he said. “You have become so important. We all know how great your state is, how beautiful your state is, but you’ve become — politically speaking — you’re at the top of the list.”
The former president also reiterated his position that “sick people” within Washington, D.C., are “the greatest danger” to the United States.
“These are bad people; that’s why our greatest danger is not from outside of our country,” Trump said. “Our greatest danger is the sick people from within. That’s the way it is.”
“And if Liz Cheney truly cared about saving American democracy, instead of persecuting Republicans, she would be demanding that everyone involved in the Russia, Russia, Russia hoax be exposed and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” he added.
Trump also had a little fun during his speech, celebrating the new nickname that has emerged for his extremely loyal supporters thanks to Biden, a move that has clearly backfired on the left.
“They gave us a new name — they made a little mistake with this — but this is Ultra MAGA country: Ultra MAGA, even better!” Trump said at the start of his speech, which lasted more than 1½ hours.
