The Lincoln Project: Trump’s Waco Rally Was Anti-Democratic And Un-American

March 25, 2023The Lincoln Project released a new statement regarding the un-American and anti-democratic statements made by Donald Trump at his Waco rally today:

“Trump’s Waco rally was both a catalog of self-pity and his usual un-American and anti-democratic statements.

“Trump doubled down on his usual violent rhetoric and threats against his political enemies. After spending this week threatening the New York City District Attorney Alvin Bragg and calling for ‘protests’, he talked about the ‘final battle’, ’weaponization’ of the office, and how he would be the ‘justice’ for his supporters.

“His choice of Waco on the anniversary of the Branch Davidian standoff was to embrace the right-wing extremists who gave him the violent protests he craves. His followers got the message, loud and clear.

“What America saw tonight was the decisive frontrunner for the Republican nomination for President laying out a dark, pessimistic vision for this nation and his usual tired catalog of grievances. The only times he seemed to come alive was when hinting of  violence and retribution.”

The Lincoln Project is a leading pro-democracy organization in the United States — dedicated to the preservation, protection, and defense of democracy.
