Trump Jr. at Border Wall: Blasts Mueller, ‘the Squad’, Socialism
NEW MEXICO – Entering the We Build the Wall symposium on the U.S.-Mexico border to chants of, “2024!”, Donald Trump Jr. used the occasion to blast former special counsel Bob Mueller, and to tell personal stories about his family’s experiences with socialism.
“We need a border, we need to be able to protect ourselves, our Citizens, from the drug trade,” the President’s son began, congratulating organizers Brian Kolfage and others at their fundraisers for the privately-funded border wall.
“When I hear some of the human stories, the suffering that has been going on as a result of this crisis, it is truly heart wrenching,” he said, before adding, “We have to put America first… the homeless… the veterans”.
His most fiery comments, however, were saved for Robert Mueller and his team.
“…you saw Bob Mueller, after two years of non-stop investigation, $50 million spent, thousands of subpoenas, hundreds of hours of testimony… and they didn’t even understand the basic premise of how it started.”
Trump Jr was referring to Mueller’s bizarre and confused testimony in front of two Congressional committees earlier this week.
Mueller appeared to be unfamiliar with his own report, and indeed how the Russian collusion investigation began: with a dossier compiled by partisan, opposition-research operatives working on behalf of NeverTrump Republicans and the Hillary Clinton/Democrati
“They were trying to figure out how to take the [Democrat National Committee] talking points and backfill the last 2 years of hysteria,” Trump Jr noted.
“We love you, Donald!” a lady exclaimed, as Jr pivoted to discuss how his great grandmother, Marie Zelnickova, experienced socialism and Communism first-hand in Czechoslovakia.
“My mother was one of those people who escaped communism,” he reflected, adding, “I spoke Czech fluently from a young age… I’ve actually waited in the breadlines people talk about.”
He also used the segment of his speech to attack the establishment news media for propping up pro-socialist arguments made by the political left.
“Today my grandmother sits there and watches CNN with tears in her eyes… this is someone who hid in the basement of her farmhouse for two years during the Nazi occupation… she’s got tears in her eyes because she sees what’s on TV and says, ‘Don, you don’t understand, you haven’t lived under this”.
“She fears for the future of her great grandchildren because of socialism… she says you can’t allow this to come here”.
Pivoting back, the President’s son closed his remarks by lobbing more attacks at the political establishment for propping up Mueller and his report, and going some way to answer who really wrote the report.“
Robert Mueller was put in there as a figurehead… he had no idea what was going on in his own investigation… did he read the report?
“Weissmann,” Donald Jr added, “was running this sham”.
“They banked their lives on this hoax, [but]… they’ve shot themselves in the foot,” he said of the political establishment.
“If this happened in a banana republic we’d say this is terrible, but it’s happening right here… it’s not acceptable”.
