They weren’t expecting this.
At a rally in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, where former President Donald Trump supported Senate GOP primary candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, Trump hailed Tuesday’s primary results and called the “America First” GOP the “party of common sense.”
During the rainy rally aired live on Newsmax, Trump stated the country is “in big trouble” but touted Tuesday’s primary results as “the latest proof that we have transformed the face of the Republican Party.”
The former President called the party “the working people’s party,” adding that the GOP is “really the party of everyone” and “the party of common sense.”
He then turned his attention to the Biden administration, accusing the President and Democrats of “destroying our country.”
“Joe Biden and the radical left Democrats have turned calm to chaos, competence to incompetence, and stability to anarchy, prosperity into poverty, and security into catastrophe,” Trump announced to the crowd.
Then, amid criticism of Biden’s attempt to root out “disinformation” and after a widely debunked investigation into Trump’s collusion with Russia, the former President endorsed Dr. Oz as his preferred candidate for Pennsylvania’s Senate primary.
“Six months from now, the people of Pennsylvania are going to vote to fire the radical left Democrats, and you’re going to send Dr. Oz to fight for you in the U.S. Senate, and you’re going to elect an incredible slate of true America First Republicans.”
Trump made these remarks 11 days before Pennsylvania’s May 17 primary, which could be instrumental in determining the midterm elections in a critical battleground state.
