There’s a reason Democrats fear Trump.
During a speech at the California GOP convention, former President Trump criticized former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and took a dig at her for her stance on border wall construction. Trump addressed the crowd, saying, “We’ll stand up to crazy Nancy Pelosi, who ruined San Francisco. How’s her husband doing, by the way, anybody know?”
According to The Hill, He went on to highlight Pelosi’s opposition to a border wall, juxtaposing it with the presence of a wall around her own house, suggesting that it didn’t provide adequate security.
It’s worth noting that Trump and Pelosi had frequently clashed during his presidency, and he also referenced an unfortunate incident involving Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi, who was seriously injured during a home intrusion the previous year. Trump had expressed sympathy for the incident at that time, and his son, Donald Trump Jr., had even shared memes suggesting a ban on hammers, which were used in the attack.
Trump emphasized the significance of California in the GOP presidential primary, even though it typically leans Democratic in the general election. He criticized the state’s Democratic leadership, asserting that it had led to the decline of California’s greatness, referring to it as a “dumping ground.”
Later in his speech, Trump used strong language to criticize President Biden and the Department of Justice, accusing them of targeting him with multiple criminal indictments due to his status as a formidable political opponent. He argued that they tend to go after opponents who are leading by a significant margin, echoing the sentiment, “Let’s indict him,” seemingly impersonating the president.
However, Trump did not mention the passing of longtime California Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) earlier that day. The convention also featured speeches by other prominent Republican figures, including Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, with more speakers scheduled for the following day, including Vivek Ramaswamy and Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.).
