The GOP nominee for governor of Louisiana is making the case that his Democratic opponent is an anti-Semitic, misogynist and racist.
“I have not forgotten about the fact that this is the president who was inaugurated in the midst of a political and racial crisis,” he said in a rally Friday in a largely black downtown New Orleans.
“I am not afraid of him.”
The Republican nominee, who has a strong showing in early voting states, also said he would not be able to do the job if he were president.
He said that his focus now is to build on the progress he has made and get things moving forward.
“But we have a president who is not afraid.””
The remarks were first reported by the Associated Press.”
But we have a president who is not afraid.”
The remarks were first reported by the Associated Press.
They came amid a week in which the GOP nominee has called for a ban on Muslim immigration and suggested the United States should deport some undocumented immigrants.
He also said the media was trying to “get us to vote” for Democrats.
The New Orleans rally drew a small crowd, which was more than half of the number that showed up for a previous rally.
Trump said his supporters were a diverse group, and that many people he had spoken to had a “deep commitment” to the Republican Party.
He said that while he had heard that Democrats were looking to turn the tide in New Orleans, he believed he had a shot at beating the Democrat.
“The only thing that would have made it more difficult would be if we lost the entire state of Louisiana, which we did,” he told a cheering crowd.
“If you’re gonna lose the entire State of Louisiana to us, that would be one thing, but we’re gonna win a lot of other states, and a lot more, and you don’t hear me say that.
I mean, that makes a lot sense.”
And if I’m President of the United Sates, that means we’re going to win the country.
“Trump also said that he would be “going after” the Republican establishment if elected.
He added that he was confident of winning the general election and that he had the “best team of the best” in the race.
