President Trump’s relatively toned-down fundraiser speech included a part criticizing Democrats.
Here’s what he told the crowd in West Des Moines:
“The Democrat party has never been angrier — they’re so angry… For what? For what? These are angry people. Every day the Democrat party is becoming more and more unhinged and more and more extreme. They’re going crazy. Do you love it? I sort of love it.”
He lamented the Mueller report, which he claimed was conducted by “18 Democrats, many of them contributed to crooked Hillary.”
He tied the Democratic party to socialism, pointing to Democratic support for Bernie Sanders’ healthcare plan and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, which received boos.
The Green New Deal, he said, was “conceived and made up by a young woman who is well, let’s see how she works out.” Trump added that the deal “would totally destroy the American economy. Other than that it’s not bad.”
Trump is still on stage and his speech is ongoing.
