(Tea Party 247) – President Trump made a trip out to Ohio where he spoke to workers at a Whirlpool factory in the city of Clyde, Ohio to talk about his efforts to help restore America’s manufacturing base.
During this speech, which he also used as an opportunity to discuss much need reform for prescription drug pricing in the pharmaceutical industry, the president made a rather strange and ominous statement about having a lot of enemies that has people scratching their heads.
We know that the president does indeed have a lot of enemies in the world. Liberals hate the very ground he walks on, mostly due to the fact that he’s an outside who has promised that he will not be bought out or controlled and has done a lot of work to dismantle the socialistic infrastructure that Democrats, particularly former President Barack Obama, have put in place.
Here’s more about this from The Gateway Pundit:
While speaking about reducing drug prices by cutting out the middlemen, Trump said he had made a lot of enemies, rich enemies, and that “This might be the last time you’ll see me for awhile.”
“…So I have a lot of enemies out there. This may be the last time you’ll see me for a while. A lot of very, very rich enemies, but they are not happy with what I’m doing. But I figure we have one chance to do it, and no other President is going to do what I do. No other President would do a favored nations, a rebate, a buy from other nations at much less cost. Nobody. And there are a lot of unhappy people, and they’re very rich people, and they’re very unhappy.”

Here’s a bit more from the speech:
And speaking of pharmaceuticals, we instituted four moves — rebates, favored nations, and other things — buying from other nations where they have the product — the same exact pill, identical; made in the same factory — for a fraction — just a small fraction of the cost. We buy from other countries, as opposed to buying through this ridiculous quagmire of political scam that we’ve been going through for many years.
And what I’ve done, in terms of favored nations, if — as an example, Germany has a pill for 10 cents and we have a pill for $2. We institute favored nations on the drug company. We get the pill for the same amount as the lowest pill anywhere in the world. Anywhere in the world. (Applause.) And that could drop your price of pharmaceuticals, of drugs — prescription drugs — it could drop your price 50, 60, 70 percent, maybe more than that.
This is something — now, I have to tell you, I have never seen so many bad commercials about me as in the last three days since I did this. (Laughter.) So, will you remember that when you see this horrible commercial that I’m a “socialist” — I was called a “socialist” for the first time in my entire life. (Laughter.) Actually, what I am doing is I’m using socialist countries, who are buying our product for far less than we’re allowed to — I’m saying, “Well, if you’re going to sell it to this country…” — might be socialist — “…for a lower price, then we’re going to get that same price.” So, you know.
But I have been called everything in the book. And I say — I said, the other day, “Whenever you see a drug company advertising that Donald Trump is a bad guy, remember: Your drug prices must be coming down very big. Very big.” (Applause.) So please remember that.
Please remember that, because I don’t want to get all those negative votes, and then Biden wins, and they try — the first month, he’ll say, “I dropped drug prices 78 percent.” And he won’t even know what the hell he’s saying. (Laughter and applause.) I don’t want to be watching that from some beautiful resort someplace in the world. I could have — oh, I had had such a beautiful life before I did this. But that’s okay because we’re doing a great job and — (applause) — it makes me very happy to see people being properly representative — represented for a change.
But during the course of the next four years, we will bring our pharmaceutical and medical supply chains home. We’re going to bring them home where they belong. And we’ll end reliance on China, just like we did with the washers and dryers, just like we did with many other things. We’ll be making our product here safely, beautifully, and inexpensively.
We’re reasserting American economic independence. And I’ve been doing that from the first day I came into office. To this end, a short time ago, I signed the new executive order to ensure that when it comes to essential medicines, we buy American. (Applause.)
A president who would dare to put America and her needs first? How shocking!
For the left, such a notion is totally appalling in just about every way. To put America first sounds a lot like nationalism and Nazism to a deranged liberal mind, even though it’s simple common sense. After all, we each take care of our own families. We don’t sit there and try to take care of every family on our block.
The reason why?
We don’t have the resources to do so.
We as a nation do not have the resources to continue on the path we are on. Something has to change. People here at home should be given a top priority and that’s what Trump wants to do. There’s nothing nefarious about that. At all.
As for what Trump’s message might mean, that’s up in the air. It definitely makes you feel uneasy to hear your president say something like that, especially given what we know about powerful, rich Democrats like George Soros and Hillary Clinton.
Here’s to hoping the president stays safe as he continues to try and help our country continue on a forward path of real progress.
