From WWW.THEEPOCHTIMES.COM

Former President Donald Trump rallied in North Carolina on Sept. 23, seeking to build support for candidates he has endorsed while denouncing “radical left” Democrat policies that he said were driving America to ruin.

Trump spoke for around 90 minutes at the Wilmington rally, urging North Carolinians to vote Republican in the upcoming mid-terms to prevent what he described as the country’s devastation under Democrat rule.

“This election is a referendum on Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, the radical left Democrat Congress that’s destroying our country, that’s brought our country really to the brink of ruin,” Trump said, drawing cheers from the spirited crowd.

“If you want the decline and fall of America, then you should vote for the crazy, radical left Democrats,” Trump said, adding that putting Republicans back in charge would “save the American dream” and stop “the destruction of our country.”

The former president touched on various themes in his speech, including the state of the economy, illegal immigration, and the corruption of Washington elites.
