Trump makes powerful pitch to Libertarians: ‘I have come to extend the hand of friendship’

by Summer Lane

President Donald Trump made a historic appearance on Saturday night at the Libertarian National Convention in Washington, D.C., where he made a powerful argument for combining forces to defeat “Crooked Joe Biden.”

He told a raucous crowd, “I’m here to talk to you about the rise of left-wing fascism and the need to defeat the corrupt and incompetent tyrant…the worst president in the history of the United States [Joe Biden].”

Trump reiterated the commonalities between Republicans and Libertarians, elevating a belief in “freedom of expression” and the “right to own a firearm.”

He also touted a belief in freedom from overregulation, government discrimination, surveillance from the federal government, and the obliteration of the rights of private citizens.

“Marxism is a doctrine straight from the ashes of hell,” he commented.

He added, “We believe that property rights are fundamental to a free society…rampant inflation is a monstrous theft for the American people.”

Trump further hammered home a message of peace, noting that it wasn’t the military’s job to propagate “senseless wars.” He explained, “The job of the United States military is to defend America from attack and invasion here at home.”
The president continued, “We live by the words of the great American patriot, Patrick Henry: ‘Give me liberty, or give me death!’”

At times, the Libertarian crowd seemed a little contentious, but Trump rolled through smoothly, addressing the audience and asking for a partnership aimed at stopping Joe Biden’s continued regime leadership.

“I have come to extend the hand of friendship,” Trump said. “…Combine with us in a partnership…we MUST work together!”

He concluded, “We cannot give Crooked Joe Biden four more years!”
