Say what you will about this year’s election, but it has been anything but dull and boring. Donald Trump has a habit of breaking new ground in the political spectrum, with his words and his actions, which usually inflames the media to no end.
At Trump’s latest rally in Pennsylvania tonight, addressing a capacity and overflow crowd once again, he said once again what millions of voters are thinking this year as he called Hillary Clinton the Devil.
She certainly looks like she has some “demons” in her sometimes…
The Daily Mail reports:
- ‘She’s the devil!’: Trump goes all-in on bashing Hillary as he says Bernie Sanders ‘made a deal with the devil’ by endorsing her
- Donald Trump said during a Pennsylvania rally that Bernie Sanders ‘made a deal with the devil’ by agreeing to endorse Hillary Clinton last week
- ‘She’s the devil!’ he boomed
- Trump isn’t the first politician to go there this year; former House Speaker John Boehner called Ted Cruz ‘Lucifer in the flesh’ in April
- Sanders’ campaign manager had said it was Hillary who ‘made a deal with the devil’ by accepting millions of dollars from Wall Street donors
- Dr. Ben Carson said during the Republican National Convention that Hillary Clinton’s mentor Saul Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer
Donald Trump called his Democratic rival ‘the devil’ on Monday in a high-profile escalation of his campaign rhetoric – at precisely the moment he needed to change the subject.
Facing a four-day-long scandal over his criticism of the father of a Muslim soldier who died in combat, the Republican presidential nominee shifted gears.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, Trump told an overflow crowd at a high school in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, ‘made a deal with the devil’ when he endorsed Clinton at last week’s Democratic National Convention.
‘She’s the devil!’ he added.
Trump has hinted at the insult before, saying Friday in Colorado that ‘Bernie blew it. He sold his soul to the devil. He did.’
But Trump had previously stopped short of declaring that Hillary Clinton is, in fact, the Prince – or Princess – of Darkness.
By rallying around Clinton instead of standing on principle, the billionaire said, Sanders ‘made a bad deal. He should have not made a deal. He would have gone down as [having] done something really important.’
‘Once he made that deal, and believe me, he has buyer’s remorse.’
‘If he would have just not done anything – just go home, go to sleep, relax – he would have been a hero,’ he said. ‘But he made a deal with the devil. She’s the devil! He made a deal with the devil. It’s true.’
It’s not the first time Satan has figured in this year’s presidential election.
Sanders’ campaign manager Jeff Weaver told CNN in April that it was Clinton who ‘made a deal with the devil’ by accepting millions in campaign cash from Wall Street banks.
‘And we know the devil wants his money in the end,’ Weaver said.
Weeks later, former House Speaker John Boehner told an audience at Stanford University that Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who was then giving Trump a strong primary fight, was ‘Lucifer in the flesh’ and ‘a miserable son of a b**ch.’
And Dr. Ben Carson, who may run the Department of Health and Human Services in a Trump administration, tried to tie Clinton to the devil two weeks ago during his Republican National Convention speech.
The former secretary of state, Carson said, was a disciple of far-left activist Saul Alinsky – who dedicated his book ‘Rules for Radicals’ to ‘Lucifer, the original radical who gained his own kingdom.’
Trump’s Pennsylvania speech was heavy on talk of manufacturing jobs and trade, clobbering the Clintons for their 1990s era support for the North American Free Trade Agreement.
The Republican nominee has called NAFTA the ‘biggest job-killer’ in recent history. It’s a theme he’s hit on often in rust-belt states including Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio.
Trump also predicted that despite her recent flip on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, Clinton will back the multi-nation trade pact if she becomes president.
