‘The pandemic is God testing me’: President Trump describes his conversations with the Lord before branding Biden a ‘jerk’ and Dems ‘fascists’ during Minnesota campaign stop – whose governor says President wanted to deliver speech where George Floyd died

  • President Donald Trump holds mini-rally in Mankato, Minnesota, as part of lightning campaign swing designed to counter-program the Democratic National Convention
  • Uses speech to around 250 supporters to label Democrats ‘fascists’ and ‘radicals’ who want to ‘erase our borders, eliminate our police, vilify our heroes’ and ‘take away our energy’
  • He mockingly described a conversation with God joking that the coronavirus was a punishment on him for taking credit for building the ‘greatest economy’
  • ‘I said: “Did I do a great job God? I’m the only one that can do it.”‘ Trump then wagged his index finger, saying God told him: ‘You shouldn’t say that. Now we’re going to have you do it again.”‘
  • Minnesota’s Democratic governor Tim Walz said that the White House had wanted to hold speech where George Floyd died in Minneapolis
  • White House disputed his version of events, saying he would not have delivered a speech at memorial to dead black man whose death prompted protests and riots

President Donald Trump let loose a stream of vitriolic insults and take-downs of leading Democratic politicians whom he accused of ‘coddling’ criminals Monday – labeling his opponents both ‘fascists’ and ‘radicals.’

He also described the economic impact of the coronavirus as ‘God testing me,’ and joked that it might have been a punishment for him building ‘the greatest economy’ before it happened.

‘Joe Biden is the puppet of left-wing extremists trying to erase our borders, eliminate our police … vilify our heroes, take away our energy,’ Trump told a crowd of a few hundred supporters in an airport hangar in Mankato, Minnesota.

‘Fascists,’ he called them. ‘They are fascists.’ Then Trump hedged slightly, saying ‘some of them’ were fascists. ‘Not all of them.’

The mini-rally was the second stop on a quickfire campaign swing through Minnesota and Wisconsin intended to counter-program the opening night of the Democratic National Convention, which had been scheduled to take place in Milwaukee before

With Democrat Joe Biden leading him in a slew of polls as the former vice president kicks off his nominating convention, Trump said Democrats would ‘destroy our Second Amendment’ and ‘attack our right to life,’ saying’I am the only thing standing in the way of your Second Amendment.’

He called out what he termed ‘left-wing fascists,’ not long after delivering his ‘law and order’ message at Minneapolis-St.Paul Airport with business owners he said had their dreams ‘burned to the ground’ during rioting in the wake of the killing of George Floyd.

‘We’re going left wing all the way,’ Trump warned.

Trump said he was rebuilding the economy and promised a ‘more than v-shaped’ recover

At one point, Trump brought up what he described as a conversation with God, suggesting that the impact of the pandemic on the economy was divinely ordained.

‘We built the greatest economy in the history of the world and now I have to do it again. Now you know what that is? That’s God testing me,’ he said.

‘He said, “you know, you did it once” and I said: “Did I do a great job God? I’m the only one that can do it.”‘

Trump then wagged his index finger in mock impersonation of God reproaching him, saying God told him: ‘You shouldn’t say that.  Now we’re going to have you do it again.”‘

The audience laughed then Trump said he told God: ‘”OK, I agree, you got me.” But I did it once and now I’m doing it again.’

Trump once again accused Democrats of seeking to ‘rig’ the election through the use of mail-in ballots.

He also called Joe Biden a ‘jerk’ in a riff apparently on an interview with Washington Rep. Pramila Jayapal, who Republicans accused of manipulating Biden after she said ‘we were able to significantly push Joe Biden to do things that he hadn’t signed on to before, so he is movable, he is listening.’

Trump said: ‘And what about the Congresswoman that I watched at the weekend?

”’I have total control over Biden, he’ll do anything I say…I have total control’…what she’s saying is, ‘I have total control over this jerk,’ he said.

”He’ll do whatever the hell I want.”

He and didn’t go much easier on Sen. Kamala Harris or Speaker Nancy Pel….
