Trump Warns of 'Socialist' Agenda


October 10, 2018 at 6:58 am EDT By Taegan Goddard 13 Comments

President Trump writes an op-ed in USA Today:

If Democrats win control of Congress this November, we will come dangerously closer to socialism in America. Government-run health care is just the beginning. Democrats are also pushing massive government control of education, private-sector businesses and other major sectors of the U.S. economy.

Every single citizen will be harmed by such a radical shift in American culture and life. Virtually everywhere it has been tried, socialism has brought suffering, misery and decay. Today’s Democratic Party is for open-borders socialism. This radical agenda would destroy American prosperity. Under its vision, costs will spiral out of control. Taxes will skyrocket. And Democrats will seek to slash budgets for seniors’ Medicare, Social Security and defense.


Playbook: “This is unusually dire language in the weeks before an election. Remember when jaws dropped after Democrats said Republicans were trying to push granny off a cliff during the 2012 election? The president of the United States is saying that Democrats are looking to model the U.S. off a socialist country whose leader is the hemisphere’s enemy No. 1 at the moment.”

4. So Trump will not save the country and use his veto power?

Trump will fold to pressure from not having a rubber stamp congress and will let them walk all over him. He will cease to even try to govern?

All the more reason to vote Democratic!!!
