California Rep. Nancy Pelosi turns Trump speech into a tool for Biden’s gain

Former U.S. President Donald Trump continues his winning streak in the presidential primaries after securing the nomination last week. Earlier this week, Trump, 77, won the primaries in Florida, Ohio, Arizona, Illinois and Kansas. Despite facing 91 criminal counts in four different jurisdictions, Trump’s doors to the general election still seem wide open at this point of the presidential race as he continues to seek financial support.

The main topics

A potential November showdown between Biden and Trump has left many Americans discontented, citing the candidates’ age as a primary concern. Moreover, issues such as illegal immigration and the state of the economy under Biden’s leadership are significant points of contention too. While Biden continuously defends his administration’s policies on these matters, Trump constantly criticizes the government for its handling the migrant crisis and failure in to properly support the U.S. economy.

Trump’s Ohio rally

Trump’s attacks on Biden extended to a recent rally in Ohio, where he addressed supporters, aiming to solidify his position in the presidential race. The rally spotlighted illegal immigration, U.S. foreign policy, and economic issues, with Trump attributing the nation’s issues to the Biden administration. In effort to emphasize the importance of his election for the American economy, some of Trump’s comments later backfired.

“If you’re listening, President Xi — and you and I are friends — but he understands the way I deal. Those big monster car manufacturing plants that you’re building in Mexico right now, and you think you’re going to get that, you’re going to not hire Americans, and you’re going to sell the cars as now we’re going to put a 100% tariff on every single car that comes across the line, and you’re not going to be able to sell those guys if I get elected. Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the whole — That’s going to be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country,” Trump said at the rally.

Backlash

Trump’s speech, specifically the part where he says that “there is going to be a bloodbath for the country,” has been in the spotlight in the days since the rally. Understandably, Trump’s political opponents used this to ‘remind’ voters of former president’s narrative even though in many cases the full context of the speech was not added.

According to FactCheck.org, the Trump campaign noted — rightly — that one of the definitions of “bloodbath,” according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is “a major economic disaster.” FactCheck.org did a Nexis search of TV news transcripts and found numerous instances of bloodbath being used in that way.

Nonetheless, the accusations against Trump continued and such events are expected to become a more frequent scenario as the presidential race progresses.

Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Democrats had to win the election because former President Donald Trump was “predicting a bloodbath.

California Rep. Nancy Pelosi reaction

Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Democrats had to win the election because former President Donald Trump was “predicting a bloodbath.” Pelosi used Trump comments against him, commented Trump’s foreign policy and asked Democrats to unite in ultimately winning the presidential election.

Pelosi said, “But we have, we just have to win this election because he’s even predicting a bloodbath. What does that mean? He’s going to exact a bloodbath? There’s something wrong here. How respectful I am of the American people and their goodness, but how much more do they have to see from him to understand that this isn’t what our country is about? Praising Hitler praising the Russians — honestly, I didn’t condemn our soldiers for losing or dying in war or being captured in war,” Pelosi said.

“He said he was wrong with Russia. They defeated Hitler. What about the millions of Americans who risked or gave their lives? What about him saying that soldiers buried in Europe? He didn’t want to visit them because they were losers,” she added.
