At a Save America rally in Anchorage, Alaska, former President Donald Trump called out President Joe Biden for unraveling American prosperity faster than any president in U.S. history.
During the rally at the Alaska Airlines Center on Saturday night, in which he was stumping for a pair of America First candidates, Trump stated that the U.S. is currently “led by fools.”
The former president lamented the speed at which Biden and the Democrats were able to do so much damage to the country, as Biden has only been in office for less than two years and he has already destroyed the economy and allowed the radical left to create lawlessness in the streets.
“Biden and the radical left have turned calm into chaos, competence into incompetence, stability into anarchy, prosperity into poverty, and security into catastrophe,” Trump said.
“The radical Democrats have turned our country into one giant sanctuary for dangerous criminal aliens,” he continued. “In the Republican Party, we believe our country should be a sanctuary for law-abiding citizens who love America like we did, like we do.”
“As we restore the rule of law and our borders, we must also restore law and order to our streets — all Democrat-run, you know that, it’s one thing they have in common, all Democrat-run under Joe Biden,” Trump added.
The former president was stumping for both Kelly Tshibaka, who is running to unseat RINO Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), and former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who is running for the congressional seat vacated by the late Rep. Don Young (R-AK), who are both considered to be “America First” candidates.
“I just saw some things that you don’t see in normal places, I’ll tell you,” Trump said. “And this is not a normal place when you have a lousy senator like Murkowski. We’re going to do something about that.”
“That’s why — and as you know, I’m here for two reasons — to support great candidates and to fulfill my promise to Alaska that I was going to come here. You know that right?” he asked.
Trump referred to Murkowski — who voted to impeach him, and also betrayed her voters by supporting the Democrats’ recent gun-control legislation and by supporting abortion — as a “RINO,” which is a common political acronym meaning Republican in Name Only. He also called her “worse than a Democrat,” and a “total creature of the Washington swamp.”
“You’re going to fire your RINO senator — she’s worse than a RINO – Lisa Murkowski,” he said. “She is the worst. I rate her No. 1 bad, and we have a couple of real bad ones, but she’s by far the worst.”
“But you’re going to elect a wonderful woman, a conservative warrior Kelly Tshibaka,” Trump added.
The former president went on to condemn the Democrats’ soft-on-crime policies and the open borders policies promoted by Biden.
“It’s so stupid what we’re doing in our country; it is so stupid,” Trump said. “If you want to make our country safer for violent criminals, vote for the radical, crazy Democrats. If you want to make it safe for your family, your children, and for law-abiding Americans, you must vote Republican and do it quickly.”
“And get Murkowski out of here because she’s not a Republican. She is not a Republican,” he added.
Trump then turned his attention to the damage to the economy caused by the Biden administration, discussing skyrocketing inflation, labor force participation and overall economic destruction.
“Under Biden, there are still 4 million people who have not returned to the labor force,” he said. “Real wages are just absolutely collapsing, especially when you add inflation. Nobody’s ever seen anything like it.”
“And the misery index. Did you ever hear about the misery index? It’s real. It’s soaring to heights that we’ve never seen before. The misery index. That doesn’t sound too good,” Trump continued.
