According to Mediaite, former President Donald Trump issued a passionate video appeal on Friday night, using his Truth Social account to solicit more donations ahead of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) reporting deadline. In his address, Trump launched a scathing attack on President Joe Biden, immigration policies, and emphasized the need for significant financial contributions to fuel his political endeavors.
Trump began by highlighting the Biden campaign’s financial success in the second quarter, reporting a substantial $72 million in contributions and $77 million in cash on hand. He contrasted this with his own fundraising efforts, indicating that Biden had outperformed him by a significant margin.
In the video, Trump criticized Biden’s presidency, repeating claims that have been deemed false, baseless, or misleading by fact-checkers. He referred to Biden as “crooked” and accused him of being corrupt and incompetent. Trump argued that the country was at risk of decline if Biden were to secure another four years in office, asserting, “This country will die if we have to go through another four years of this guy!”
Trump then made a direct appeal to his supporters, urging them to contribute to his campaign ahead of the FEC end-of-quarter deadline. He emphasized the need to generate substantial fundraising numbers to counter what he called “vicious attacks from the deep state” and to ultimately remove Biden from the White House.
The former president outlined his vision for the future, promising to save the country, “make America great again,” and address various issues such as lowering costs, achieving energy independence, and tackling inflation. He also lamented the current state of the economy and expressed concerns about immigration, characterizing migrants as “terrorists” and asserting that they were entering the country unchecked.
Trump promised to strengthen the borders and criticized the current border situation as the worst in history, even comparing it unfavorably to third-world countries. He concluded his appeal by reiterating his commitment to making America great again and expressing gratitude to his supporters.
After the last FEC deadline, we outraised the entire Republican field and ended the quarter with more cash on hand than Crooked Joe Biden, which is not easy to do because he’s crooked.
Now it’s time to do it again. We’re coming up on another FEC end of quarter deadline and we need to post massive numbers. We’ve raised a lot of money, but we need to post massive numbers. With your support, we will overcome the vicious attacks from the deep state and evict crooked Joe Biden from the White House. He’s the most corrupt president in our history. He’s the most incompetent president in our history. And this country will die if we have to go through another four years of this guy!
Thank you for everything you’ve done for our movement. Together, we will save our country. We will make America great again and will start very quickly. We’ll be lowering your costs we’ll be lowering your energy will become energy independent quickly. You will see inflation disappear. We’ll get back to business. We had the greatest economy in history.
Now we have a bad economy and we have people pouring in by the millions and we have no idea who they are. They come from prisons. They come from mental institutions. They’re terrorists. They’re coming into our country totally unchecked. We will stop it. We will make the borders strong again. You know, we have the strongest border in the history of our country. Now we have the worst border, I think, maybe anywhere in the world in the history of our world, because not even a third-world country would allow it to happen what’s happening to us? So we’re going to make America great again. And thank you very much.
This video message from Trump underscores his continued engagement in the political arena and his efforts to rally support for his political objectives and potential future campaigns.
