Former President Donald Trump blasted Democrat spending bills as “socialism” while claiming they will also destroy entire industries, wreck the economy, and cost trillions in new taxes into the foreseeable future.
During a rally in Des Moines, Iowa, on Saturday, Trump also summarized how he sees the first nine months of President Joe Biden’s administration.
“After just nine months under Biden, violent criminals and bloodthirsty gangs are taking over our streets. Illegal aliens and deadly drug cartels are taking over our borders. Inflation is taking over our economy. China is taking over our jobs. The Taliban has taken over Afghanistan. Lunatic leftists are taking over our schools, and radical socialists are taking over our country. And we’re not going to let that happen,” he vowed.
He also talked about how the spending bills are an effort by Democrats to transform America’s free-market-based society.
“Practically every single Democrat has endorsed this deranged legislation, and that is why they have to be voted out of office next November,” he said.
Here is a summary of additional statements made by the former president.
— “This monstrosity’s a bill to end America as we know it…it’s a socialist transformation bill. It’s an open borders bill. It’s an American energy destruction bill.”
— “It’s an illegal, race-based discrimination bill. It is a corrupt elections bill…it’s a bankrupt Medicare bill, they will bankrupt that and Social Security. It is a naked power grab by the likes of Biden and Pelosi and Kamala Harris.”
— “Biden’s socialist bill also includes mass amnesty and free college…for illegal aliens; it includes a blowout increase in chain migration and eliminates caps on green cards for foreign workers.”
— “The Democrat bill will also admit every foreign national previously denied under my national security travel ban…We really don’t want people in our country who are going to blow up our cities, if you don’t mind…They’re having enough time with crime on Fifth Avenue right now, in Chicago and lots of other places.”
— “It will include funding for unlimited numbers of unvetted Afghan nationals to be brought to America and given free welfare and government benefits courtesy of you, the people of Iowa and the American taxpayer. Congratulations, I’m sure you’re thrilled about it.”
— “Their bill includes giant new taxes and fees on American oil. And especially on American gas production that will kill countless oil and gas jobs, devastating workers in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Oklahoma, North Dakota and many, many other states. Gas prices and inflation have already skyrocketed.”
— “The Democrat bill imposes a new energy tax on methane, which is projected to increase your energy costs by hundreds of dollars per year.”
–“The bill abolishes the Hyde Amendment, forcing taxpayers to fund the far-left extreme abortion agenda, ripping babies from their mothers’ wombs, right up until the moment of birth. And in fact, killing babies even after birth…”
— “The Democrat bill contains billions and billions of dollars for unlawful government training programs inspired by toxic and bigoted critical race theory. It’s crammed with so-called equity provisions. Equity — you know what equity means? We’re going to take it away from you and give it to other people…But it’s a code word for illegal government discrimination that they want to bring to everything from education, to housing, health care and too your military. They’re also giving the IRS the power to destroy people, just like they tried to do with the Tea Party, Christian organizations and just like they’ve always been trying to do to me.”
— “This bill is a sinister combination of job-killing tax hikes and woke fascism that will destroy our nation.”
— “But the bottom line will always be a socialist transformation of America if they allow this to happen.”
