Former President Donald Trump is once again at the center of a political firestorm after telling supporters to do whatever it takes to win the presidential election. Here’s the full story.
In a one-minute clip shared on Truth Social, Trump can be heard addressing his supporters, expressing concerns about his Republican rivals, and seemingly instructing them to “do whatever it takes” to secure his victory.
Teach Them How to Caucus
“To our wonderful Trump caucus captains, thank you for all that you’re doing. We really appreciate it,” Trump began in the video.
“The most important thing you can do for our campaign is to lock in your ‘Ten for Trump’ and send them out for caucuses and teach them how to caucus, take them into your car on caucus night,” he continued.
Do Whatever Is Necessary
“If you have to, do whatever is necessary… We gotta make America great again. So do whatever it takes. If you do, we will win and win big. You know the other side does cheat, and we’re not going to let that happen — cannot have that happen — That’s what we need from you,” he added.
Criticism Flowed In
The video was shared on Twitter, where it faced significant backlash.
Social media users were quick to criticize Trump for his comments, accusing him of employing a double standard.
Straight Out of Trump’s Playbook
One user wrote, “This is straight out of Trump’s playbook of ‘everyone else is cheating but me,’ except he’s too stupid to hide the fact that he’s doing the exact thing he’s accusing others of doing.
He cheats, and his supporters say he’s a genius. His rivals do the same, and those same supporters roll around on the floor crying. This is where we’re at.”
Another user added, “Are we just going to ignore the fact that he’s telling his supporters to do ‘whatever is necessary’??? Isn’t this EXACTLY what he said that led to the January 6 riots where his ‘supporters’ tried to coup the entire government for their King-God Trump?”
A MAGA Siege
A third user commented, “Imagine Trump’s mob descending upon Iowa. This is going to be fun to watch.
The loud trucks, bull horns, huge flags, and crass social discourse. Iowa deserves what’s coming, a MAGA SIEGE! I cannot think of a more deserving community.”
Lock Him Up
A fourth user wrote, “This is his game. Convince his cult followers the election is rigged even before there is an election. He needs to be silenced. LOCK HIM UP!”
Not a New Problem
However, this is not the first time Trump has made a controversial post on Truth Social.
In a recent post, he took issue with the gag order imposed by Federal District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan, suggesting that he was being unfairly targeted.
Joe Biden and His Radical Left Thugs
“REMEMBER, CROOKED JOE BIDEN AND HIS RADICAL LEFT THUGS WAITED THREE YEARS TO BRING THESE INDICTMENTS & LAWSUITS AGAINST ME, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF MY CAMPAIGN!” Trump wrote.
Trump Has Support
Despite the controversy and criticism, Trump continues to maintain significant support among likely Republican voters.
Recent polls indicate that he enjoys a substantial lead, with a 58% approval rating, putting him nearly 46 points ahead of his closest rival, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is polling at just 13%.
