Donald Trump, the former president, took to the stage in Las Vegas, Nevada after what he called a “good day” but a “long and tired day.” Trump broke the Nevada Caucus record with an astounding turnout of 98 percent.
“We said that anything above 80 tonight would be a good night. We’re now at 98 percent”, Trump crowed. Trump was flanked on both sides by North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum and Kathryn Burgum, Karoline Leavitt of the campaign, and Woody Johnson, a businessman from the Johnson and Johnson Corporation.
The audio was choppy at first, but Trump still managed to thank his supporters, including Lieutenant Governor Stavros Antony and Governor Joe Lombardo. Trump mentioned UFC fighter Sean Strickland and celebrity golfer Bryson Strickland in the audience. Kevin McCarthy, the former Speaker of the House, was in the room, and Trump appeared to be pleasantly surprised. Trump mentioned the Nelk Boys. Trump interviewed at the request of UFC president Dana White. The interview reached 22,000,000 hits.
Trump’s triumphant mood changed to one of surprising somberness on a dime.
This has been a remarkable time for my country. For the world. It has been a long time since the world was like this. If you had looked at the attacks on Israel or on Ukraine, with Russia, then I am sure that this attack would never have happened. Israel’s attack would never have happened. The inflation would never have happened. Right now, the world would look very different. We’re determined to bring the world back to its former glory, fast and very strongly. Very, very powerful. It’s sad to see. All the deaths you’ve seen in Ukraine and Russia. What happened in Israel? You can’t replace all the deaths, the destruction of ancient cities, the demolitions of ancient buildings, and the destruction of ancient places. All those deaths, and most importantly, they would never have happened. And we’re gonna change it. We’re gonna change it around. We’re going to get back to normal. We can’t go on like this. Our country is in a terrible state, the world is exploding and we are a laughingstock around the globe. We were respected, we were respected. Just three years ago we were respected, but now we’re a laughingstock around the world. We are not even slightly respected.
The decision of Special Counsel Hur on Thursday to not prosecute President Joe Biden for his retention of classified papers from his time as Vice president because Biden was mentally unfit to face trial, came as a surprise. Joe Biden’s cognitive degeneration is now documented for the nation. Trump’s tone showed that, due to the current state of our nation, this news is not being celebrated.
You understand the reason, you know why. This country lacks leadership and has no clue what is happening. It has lost its way. It is a failing country. We won’t have a nation in decline for much longer.
Thank you to the wonderful people of Nevada. You broke the record for all-time caucuses. This state has been amazing. If we win this state, we will win the elections in November. We must win the election. Great countries have many things in common, but they all have two things: strong borders and free, fair, and honest elections. We don’t.
Trump recited his record and then echoed Biden’s failure theatre, from the botched Afghanistan withdrawal to the crisis at the Southern Border to Putin being emboldened. Trump promised once more to return the world to normal and refocus on America First. “And it’ll be peace through force.”
Trump then became eerily gloomy once more.
We live in a country with tremendous potential. If something bad happens in this next election. If we don’t win this election, I think that our country will cease to exist.
In light of the day’s events, even those who oppose Trump as president probably see how this could be the case. Of course, it would not be a Trump victory speech without his making a dig at the only rival left in the presidential race: Former U.N. Ambassador and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
You know what happened last night, don’t you? None of the Above! I’d like to congratulate you, on “None of the above!” I was one of those none, of ever, aboves, I was one of them.
Trump referred to the Supreme Court Colorado case and expressed his hope that they would take action to preserve democracy and help the nation. Trump asked Gov. Doug Burgum, Woody Johnson, and others to speak.
Trump ended his speech by warning about the dangers of Biden’s border mismanagement, citing the alarming figure of 19 million illegals who will have crossed America’s borders in just four years. This number is roughly equivalent to the population of New York State. Trump did his best to finish the evening on a positive note.
Come back and we’ll turn it around. We’ll win Nevada and then our country will be bigger, better, and more beautiful, than ever!
