Another of Trump’s campaign pledges has been successfully carried through while he is in office. He traveled all the way to Alaska to meet with his supporters there.
At a rally held at the Alaska Airlines Center, President Trump spoke for a total of ninety minutes. According to the workers at the Center, there were more than 5,000 people.
It did not take long for Trump to gain the crowd’s confidence. At one point during his speech, the former president used a very unusual f-bomb, which prompted the audience to start chanting “USA! USA!”
Trump shared with the captivated audience the story of a meeting he had with generals while he was traveling to Iraq.
They were discussing how to fight ISIS, and one of the generals mentioned that it would take a number of years to accomplish this goal. But another general shot back, pledging that he would “hit ’em in the f***ing center” in response to the first general’s statement.
Trump thundered from the podium, “I’d hit ‘em on the left. I’d hit ‘em on the right. I’d hit ‘em in the f***ing center… Right smack.”
The crowd erupted with excitement and loud cheers and then they began chanting “USA! USA!”
Trump kept his distance and did nothing except listen as the volume of the crowd continued to rise. After giving a smile, he said, “I like Alaska.”
Trump made it abundantly apparent that he was in Alaska for two reasons: the first was to unequivocally back two candidates, and the second was to deliver on a promise that he had made to Alaska. He vowed to campaign against incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski who voted to impeach him.
Trump said that he is backing Republican candidates Sarah Palin for the United States House of Representatives and Kelly Tshibaka for the United States Senate.
He used the word “wonderful” to describe Tshibaka, and he used the word “legendary” to describe Palin. On the other hand, his words for Murkowski were completely different.
He referred to Senator Murkowski as a RINO, and claimed that she was “worse than a Democrat.”
