Rand Paul: Vote Trump If You Oppose ‘Socialists Poisoning Schools, Burning Cities'
Republican calls on Americans to cast their vote to end riots
Republican Sen. Rand Paul called on Americans who oppose the surge of far-Left riots and looting across the country to vote President Donald Trump if they want to see an end to it.
Speaking at the Republican National Convention on Tuesday, Paul recalled how he met Trump “many years ago,” noting how he was “struck by how down to earth he was.”
“I was planning a medical mission to Guatemala to perform charity eye surgeries," Paul began.
"We needed money to fund the trip. Donald Trump offered to help, and immediately came through for us and for those kids,” Paul said.
"Not only did he support my medical mission to Guatemala, but he also contributed to another mission trip to Haiti a year later.”
“We performed hundreds of surgeries in both countries,” he added.
“Nothing is more beautiful to me in this world than removing the bandages from a person’s eyes, and watching them as they see their loved ones again," he continued.
"Donald Trump helped me make that happen.”
Paul later noted the huge contrast between Trump's achievements and the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's, specifically on the issues of criminal justice reform and war.
"To those of you who want lower taxes and better, less expensive healthcare, join me in supporting President Trump,” Paul added.
“To those of you who want to stand up and fight the socialists poisoning our schools and burning our cities"
"Join me in supporting President Trump.”
Paul's words came after a church in Kenosha, Wisconsin, was burned down by Black Lives Matter rioters, days after cops shot black man Jacob Blake after he refused to comply while under arrest.
The shooting occurred while law enforcement officials were responding to a domestic incident.
The violent anti-police riots have been ravaging the city since the weekend.
