President Donald Trump devoted a portion of his time during last week’s rally in Minnesota to grossly mischaracterizing the Democratic Party, calling his opponents the “party of crime”.
> This from Samuel Chamberlain at FoxNews: “President Trump decried Democrats as members of the ‘party of crime’ at a rally in support of Republican House and Senate candidates in Minnesota Thursday night, as the Senate moved toward a crucial test vote on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. The president warned that if Democrats take control of Congress in November’s midterm elections, they would ‘plunge our country into a nightmare of gridlock, poverty, chaos and frankly, crime, because that’s what comes with it.’”
Trump also told his supporters that Democrats are willing to “do anything” to obtain power:
> For USA Today, David Jackson writes, “At his rally in Minnesota, Trump lauded Kavanaugh as a ‘brilliant’ judge who is being unfairly accused because he is a Republican. Employing some of his harshest rhetoric against the opposition party, Trump said Democrats are willing ‘to do anything, to hurt anyone, to get the power they so desperately crave … They want to resist, they want to obstruct, they want to delay demolish, they want to destroy.’”
