U.S. President Trump has held a rally in Phoenix, Arizona. His rally braced massive protests by thousands of protestors
Police clashed with the protesters after they were ‘attacked with rocks’.
In his hour-long speech in the Phoenix rally, Trump denounced the media, reiterated his promise to build a wall, and criticized Democrats for failing his Obama Care repeal efforts.
President Trump has also talked about the foreign policy of his administration. In his long remark about North Korea’s Kim Jung Il, Trump said, “I respect the fact that I believe he is starting to respect us, I respect that fact very much. I respect that fact. And maybe probably not, but maybe something positive can come about, they won’t tell you that. But maybe something positive can come about.”
Trump indicated that the U.S. might terminate the NAFTA treaty with Mexico and Canada. He said, “Personally, I don’t think we can make a deal because we have been so badly taken advantage of.”
In his long remark about Afghanistan, Trump said, “This is a place where terrorists are trained, where we have people who are not exactly United States fans, can I say that? And I will tell you, that what we’re going to do, with our incredible military, they’re going to make unbelievable sacrifices and they’ve already made, in some cases, the ultimate sacrifice. But we’re fighting for them, our war fighters deserve the tools they need and the trust they’ve learned to fight and to win. Fight and to win.”
He accused the Democrats of being responsible for failing his administration to repeal Obamacare. He said, “They have 48 Democrats, we got no votes. We got no votes and it would’ve been great healthcare. And by the way, would’ve been great health care for Arizona; would’ve been great. So the Democrats have no ideas, no policy; no vision for the country other than total socialism and maybe – frankly – a step beyond socialism from what I’m seeing”.
Trump said that his administration is just one vote short of repealing Obamacare. He said, “Obamacare is a disaster and think … think! We were just one vote away from victory after seven years of everybody proclaiming ‘Repeal and Replace.’ One vote away. But we are going to get rid of Obamacare. I will never stop. One vote! I will never stop. We’re going to get rid of Obamacare.”
President Trump openly attacked the ‘crooked media.’ He said, “The media can attack me, but where I draw the line is when they attack you…When they attack the decency of our supporters. “You are honest, hard-working, tax-paying – by the way, you are overtaxed but we’re going to get your taxes down … it’s time to expose the crooked media deceptions and to challenge the media for their role in fomenting divisions.”
Trump accused U.S. media of giving a platform to the hate groups. He said, “I didn’t say I love you because you’re black, or I love you because you’re white. I love all the people of our country.”
