Trump To Americans: ‘You Have No Choice But To Vote For Me Or Everything Will Go Down The Tubes’
President Donald Trump declared at a campaign rally on Thursday that Americans “have no choice” but to vote for him, warning that “everything” would be “down the tubes” if he does not win reelection in 2020.
“The bottom line is, I know you like me, and this room is a love fest, I know that,” Trump told the crowd at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire. “But you have no choice but to vote for me, because your 401(k)’s down the tubes, everything’s gonna be down the tubes,” he added.
“So whether you love me or hate me, you gotta vote for me,” he said.
Trump’s remarks echoed those he made hours ahead of his Thursday evening rally. Speaking to reporters in New Jersey on Thursday afternoon, the president insisted that U.S. economic growth would end if the nation elected a Democrat to the White House next year.
“Frankly if for some reason that happened in the 2020 election, you’ll see this economy go down the tubes. I will tell you that right now,” Trump said.
The comments from Trump come a day after the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged 800 points in its worst slide of 2019.
Trump earlier Thursday blamed the news media for the stock market drop, accusing the press of trying to harm the economy with bad reporting, and claiming that it was doing so to hurt his reelection prospects.
“The problem they have is that the economy is way too strong and we will soon be winning big on Trade, and everyone knows that, including China,” Trump tweeted.
The Fake News Media is doing everything they can to crash the economy because they think that will be bad for me and my re-election. The problem they have is that the economy is way too strong and we will soon be winning big on Trade, and everyone knows that, including China!
