Trump holds rally in Nevada, calls governor ‘political hack’
On Sunday, President Donald Trump was back in his element at an indoor political rally in a warehouse outside Las Vegas. The president was violating Nevada’s state mandate on public gatherings which caps the number of attendees at 50. He told supporters that Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak was a “political hack.”
“You have a governor right now who is a political hack,” Trump said. “Tell your governor to open up your state, by the way. Open up your state.”
Trump also told supporters that if they face any backlash for violating the state’s public gathering mandate, that he’ll back them up 100%.
“If the governor comes after you, which he shouldn’t be doing, I’ll be with you all the way, I’ll be with you all the way, don’t worry about a thing,” Trump said.
Sisolak fired back at the president calling him “reckless and selfish.”
“President Donald Trump is taking reckless and selfish actions that are putting countless lives in danger here in Nevada,” the governor said. “The President appears to have forgotten that this country is still in the middle of a global pandemic.”
Trump also took aim at former President Barack Obama for spying on his campaign in 2016. In response, the crowd began to chant “lock him up.” The chant is a slight variation of the “lock her up” chant aimed at Hilary Clinton that became popular at Trump rallies back in 2016.
The president also continued his attacks on the NFL at the start of his rally saying that supporters use to ask him to not schedule events during football games.
“Now they say, ‘can you possibly do it during a football game?’ We have some free time,” Trump said. “Football’s boring as hell. It’s just not the same, right?”
Taking aim at his Democratic opponent, Trump called a new ad by Joe Biden pathetic. The ad promotes comments that Trump supposedly made about American veterans that came to light after interviews with Bob Woodward.
“Pathetic Joe. He’s a pathetic human being to allow that to happen,” Trump said. “But you know the good part?” Trump continued. “Now I can be really vicious. Once I saw that ad, I don’t have to be nice anymore.”
Trump warned attendees that Biden is being controlled by the far left and would support their efforts to gut police departments and allow criminals to flood American streets. He plugged several police union endorsements he’s recently received and pledged to restore law and order very soon.
“When they do ask for help we come in and end the unrest. It took 35 minutes to quell a situation that went on for two weeks,” Trump said. “These are anarchists, not protesters.”
Trump now heads to California which is continuing to battle massive forest fires.
