The Hill reports:
President Trump late Saturday escalated his rhetoric in urging supporters to support Republicans in the midterm elections, warning that Democrats have become “too extreme and too dangerous to govern.” The president’s tweet was roughly the same quote he delivered to cheers at the rally in Kansas.
During the rally, Trump painted a dystopian view of the fallout from possible Democratic victories in November. He pointed to the fight over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation process as a sign of the stakes in the upcoming midterms.
You don’t hand matches to an arsonist, and you don’t give power to an angry left-wing mob. Democrats have become too EXTREME and TOO DANGEROUS to govern. Republicans believe in the rule of law – not the rule of the mob. VOTE REPUBLICAN!
