Former President Donald Trump fired up the crowd at another rally on Saturday night, making predictions about the midterms later this year and revealing another key U.S. Senate endorsement.
Trump said he was backing TV personality, Dr. Mehmet Oz, in his bid to win the Republican primary in Pennsylvania.
“By the way, I endorsed another person today — Dr. Oz in Pennsylvania,” Trump told supporters in Selma, N.C., according to Newsmax. “Dr. Oz is a great guy — good man, good man, Harvard educated, tremendous, tremendous career and they liked him for a long time.”
Hitting on a familiar theme, Trump also said it was pointless to talk about American “greatness” at the moment because “right now our country is a laughingstock around the world.”
He also made predictions about upcoming elections.
“This is the year we’re going to take back the House, we’re going to take back the Senate, and we’re going to take back America,” Trump said. “And, in 2024, most importantly, we are going to take back our beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, White House.”
As normal, Trump also lashed out at the current administration under President Joe Biden.
“Our country is being systematically destroyed,” Trump said. “We have a president who is challenged, but he’s surrounded by vicious, evil, and very corrupt people who are doing whatever they want to in running our country to ruin.
“With your vote this November we can stop our nation’s decline. We can make America great again.”
“The stakes this November could not be higher,” Trump told the crowd. “Biden and the congressional Democrats triggered runaway inflation, the supply chain disaster. How about that? You go to a store, you don’t have anything on the shelves. Whoever even heard of it?
“They declared war on American energy, and now the middle class is being crushed by the highest gas and food prices in the history of our country. Violent criminals are being set loose in Democrat-run cities to prey on innocent citizens,” he continued.
“There’s never been anything like the crime that we’re witnessing in the Democrat-run cities, while radical-left judges persecute Republicans and hold political prisoners without trial.
“Our children are being indoctrinated; our values are being desecrated; our heritage is being obliterated; and our country is being humiliated by a president who has no idea what the hell is going on,” said the 45th president.
He added the “choice this November is very simple” for voters.
“If you want high crime, high prices, high taxes, high corruption, and high incompetence, vote for the radical Democrats,” Trump said. “If you want a country that is strong, sovereign, solvent, safe, and secure, you really have to vote for America First Republicans.
“It’s common sense.”
