President Donald Trump addressed a captivated audience during his remarks on Thursday night at the Heritage Foundation’s annual leadership conference in Amelia Island, Florida.
The 45th president addressed a variety of topics and delivered especially strong rhetoric regarding his stance on men’s participation in women’s sports.
“We cannot have men participate in women’s sports,” he stated. “The swimmers that are getting absolutely clobbered are afraid to say anything because they think it’s politically incorrect. So, I’m the king of being politically incorrect, and I’ll tell you it’s not right.”
Trump further decried the “radical left” and their “indoctrination” of American children from kindergarten to college.
“No teacher should ever be allowed to teach transgenderism to our children without affirmative parental consent,” he told the crowd, touching again on the issue of parental rights and the effects of “far-left gender ideology” being taught in public schools today. “We have to stand up for parental rights,” he continued.
Trump’s speech at the event was peppered with a hefty dose of criticism of Joe Biden’s failed domestic and international policies that have resulted in record-high inflation and foreign war.
“This is the most dangerous period in the history of our country,” he remarked.
The president also discussed in great detail the reality of America’s enemies not only abroad, but within.
He asserted that the principles of American idealism that have “sustained and strengthened our country for nearly 250 years” are under assault from the radical left movement.
Trump later added that “only a fool or somebody who hates our country” could look at what is happening in America today and be satisfied with the direction things are going.
“The greatest danger to America is not our enemies from the outside – the greatest danger is the destruction of our country from within,” he concluded.
