Trump says “America will never be a socialist country”

Trump SOTU 2019

President Donald Trump condemned Senator Bernie Sanders, Representative Alexandria Ocacio-Cortez, and other politicians who are pushing for socialist policies such as the Medicare for All.

In his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, Trump said the United States of America will never become a socialist country like Venezuela. He noted that the once wealthiest Southern American country became impoverished because of the brutality and socialist policies of the Maduro regime.

“We stating with the Venezuelan people in their noble quest for freedom—and we condemn the brutality of the Maduro regime, whose socialist policies have turned that nation from being the wealthiest in South America into a state of abject poverty and despair,” said Trump.

He continued, “Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence—not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free.”

Trump proclaimed, “Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”

Sanders said America has “socialism for the rich”

In his rebuttal, Sanders said Americans are not truly free when they are in poverty and cannot afford the things they need such as food, medicine, and shelter.
