GREEN BAY — Hundreds of Wisconsinites gathered collectively, these for and people towards, to see President Donald Trump at his MAGA Rally on the Resch Middle final Saturday.
Earlier within the day, Democrats held a press convention and rally at the Inexperienced Bay Labor Temple to discuss well being care, taxation and the surroundings.
“We have people worried about the economy,” Brown County Democratic Get together Chairwoman Lindsay Dorff stated, “We have people worried about tax cuts who are favoring the rich over working families. We have people who are worried about their access to health care and what will happen to them if the ACA [Affordable Care Act] goes away when they have a pre-existing condition. We have parents like myself … worried about the environment and what we are leaving for our kids. We feel like Democrats are the ones who are actually answering these questions.”
Joanne Lazansky of Kewaunee stated she distrusts Trump.
“All his lying and the way he treats the media, you know, anything that doesn’t paint him in a positive light is automatically fake news,” Lazansky stated.
Wisconsin State AFL CIO secretary treasurer Dennis Delie stated the rich and the powerful wipe out unions in their quest to grow to be richer and more highly effective.
“Never has this quest for extreme wealth and power been as evident as it is under this current administration,” he stated.
Sen. Dave Hansen, D-Green Bay, stated issues with well being care are obvious on the federal degree, where polls present that Democrats have a 10-point lead over Trump on general individual well being care.
“President Trump brags … over and over again that he will destroy ObamaCare,” Hansen stated. “Voters in Wisconsin have turned against him on health care. He bragged to the NRA about the sabotage that he’s done to the Affordable Care Act by getting rid of the individual mandate and followed it up, ‘Now we’re going to get rid of the rest.’ Wow, what a statement.”
Native LPN at Ascension Pressing Care and Democratic get together chairwoman, Marcia Steele stated her largest concern is well being care.
“People shouldn’t be afraid of going to the hospital or the emergency room because of how much it will cost, and I see that all the time in urgent care,” she stated. “They come in days after they’ve been sick and now instead of getting them antibiotics, now we’re starting IVs and they have to come in because their leg got so infected, things like that. It’s just wrong.”
Wisconsin Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes stated Trump is just holding a rally in Wisconsin as a result of he’s fearful.
“Donald Trump has been a disaster in each of these issue areas (treatment of immigrants, clean energy, criminal justice reform, health care) for our state, for our country,” Barnes stated. “Look at our dairy farmers; we lost 700 dairy farmers last year. You look at the price of milk, and our president isn’t doing anything to support our family farmers or working people. He’s not doing anything to support our working people who are working so hard to get the health care that they deserve. Yet he’s here today because he’s desperate. He knows the importance of the state of Wisconsin. He knows that when Democrats lead with a vision, Donald Trump has no chance.”
In the meantime, outdoors the Resch Middle, Trump supporters waited for hours to get in for the rally.
Eva Wypych, formerly of Poland, stated she came from Chicago and had been standing within the VIP section line for eight hours.
“I’m so happy to be here,” she stated. “I am always supporting President Trump. The way he treats our country, I think he’s one of the best presidents ever. I came from a communist country. I don’t want communism here; I got out of the country in 1979 and I don’t want the same thing here. America first, security first, job first. I love this president; I love this crowd. I love this rally. For the first time, I am very happy.”
Michael Schnur stated he got here solely to help his president.
“I just don’t find myself fitting in with a lot of the politicians on the Democratic Party, and I feel President Trump speaks for me, with the whole common sense thing, like you have the freedom to own a gun, the common stuff like who is in our country, why they are here,” Schnur stated. “I’m a big Second Amendment guy. I love my gun rights. It’s one of the first rights in the Bill of Rights that we have. I love the idea of the barrier of the wall; it is a problem down at the southern border.”
Eden Witt stated she got here to the rally to have fun with like-minded people.
“… We’re really broken as a country,” Witt stated. “When you come here, you can celebrate things like the flag and how great our country is, and you know that everyone here believes the same thing. It’s very unifying and that’s just something that our country doesn’t have anymore. I wish we could share this with other people who don’t like Trump. I agree with his foreign policy because he’s tough, but he also doesn’t want our soldiers fighting useless wars because that’s not fair to them, and that’s not fair to their families. I also agree with lower taxes and cutting regulations to help businesses. Most of all, I appreciate Donald Trump because, unlike most Republicans, he has a backbone.”
The doors opened at four p.m. and safety began checking in each particular person. President Trump didn’t take the stage till 7 p.m. but that didn’t cease the gang from cheering in excitement hours before his look.
Social media personalities Diamond and Silk, U.S. Congressmen Mike Gallagher and Sean Duffy, both R-Wis., and Donald Trump Jr. puffed up the gang before Trump finally walked down the runway.
Donald Trump Jr. drew on the slogan “Promises made, promises kept.”
“I understand in 2016 you guys took a big chance on my father, what was different than him than any other politician, making promises,” Trump Jr. stated. “You’ve been hearing promises for decades, but now look at the numbers across the board. Five million new jobs in America, many of those right here in Wisconsin.”
When the viewers caught glimpse of Donald Trump’s shoe appearing by means of the curtains, the gang instantly burst right into a roar. Trump took his time strolling down the runway, bowing and pointing at the audience.
During his speech, he addressed several issues concerning healthcare, jobs and the Mexican border.
“We’re going to be the party of healthcare,” Trump stated. “We’re coming up with a great package after the election. We repealed ObamaCare. It’s unfair and a very unpopular individual mandate. Well, you had to pay a fortune for the privilege of not having health insurance; that was very bad. And we’ll always protect patients with pre-existing conditions. The Republicans are always going to protect pre-existing conditions.”
A full repeal of the Reasonably priced Care Act would eliminate provisions that shield individuals with pre-existing circumstances. Trump did not speak about his plan to counter this.
Trump additionally talked about expanding america army.
“We are rebuilding our military like never before in the history of our planet,” Trump stated. “That includes brand new combat ships from Marinette and more than 6,000 brand new armored vehicles from Oshkosh.”
Opposite to the five million new jobs that Trump Jr. referred to, Trump claimed there have been six million new jobs.
“In the state of Wisconsin alone, we have created 23,000 brand new manufacturing and construction jobs, a record,” Trump stated. “After years and years of declining wages, wages are rising for the first time in 21 years. We have cut 30,000 pages of job-killing regulations from the federal register. That’s an all-time record. It’s never happened before. We passed the largest package of tax cuts and reforms in our nation’s history.”
Reality Verify: The financial system created about 6 tens of millions jobs in the roughly two years before the election, then once more in the roughly two years after.
Through the president’s speech, there have been many chants coming from the viewers, one of the crucial common being, “Build the wall!”
“We’re building the wall by the way,” Trump stated. “We’re gonna have over 400 miles of wall built by the end of next year. These left-wing extremists don’t believe America has the right to enforce our immigration laws or decide who gets to enter and remain in our country. Democrats want to allow totally unlimited, uncontrolled and unchecked migration all paid for by you, the American taxpayer. The Republican Party believes America has not only the right, but the absolute duty to control our borders and to enforce our laws.”
Trump stated the wall is important to recruit staff legally and to regulate drug trafficking.
“We have so many companies … that need workers, but they have to come in legally and they have to come in through merit; we will always support the heroes of ICE and border patrol,” Trump stated. “The border crisis is also driving, and very strongly, the drug crisis, the biggest crisis we have. It’s people, and it’s drugs, and it’s traffickers, cartels, traffic, huge quantities of heroin, meth, cocaine and fentanyl across our southern border.”
“Last month alone, 100,000 illegal immigrants arrived at our borders, placing a massive strain on communities, and schools, and hospitals and public resources like nobody’s ever seen before,” Trump stated. “Now we’re sending many of them to sanctuary cities, thank you very much. They’re not too happy about it. I’m proud to tell you that was actually my sick idea, by the way.”
Reality Examine: WBAY reported that there isn’t a proof to help that the Trump Administration has begun to send migrants to sanctuary cities. In truth, Homeland Safety Officers rejected the plan as unworkable.
Trump additionally mentioned laws to ban late-term-abortion.
“[Democrats] are aggressively pushing extreme late-term abortion, allowing children to be ripped from their mothers’ womb right up until the moment of birth,” Trump stated. “The baby is born. The mother meets with the doctor. They take care of the baby, they wrap the baby beautifully. And then the doctor and the mother determine whether or not they will execute the baby. I called on Congress to immediately pass legislation prohibiting the extreme late-term abortion abolished. So Democrats are now the party of high taxes, high crime, open borders, late-term abortion, hoaxes and delusions.”
Reality Verify: In response to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 91% of abortions are carried out at less than three months gestation, eight% are carried out between three and five months gestation, 1% are performed at more than 5 months gestation. Zero abortions have been documented within the final or ninth month.
Most of the speakers earlier than Trump took the chance to bash the information. Trump additionally weighed in, referring to “sick, demented, horrible beings” that go “blow up a store” after studying one thing on the internet.
“Fake news. They’re fake, they are fake, they are fakers,” Trump stated. “I’ll tell you, you know what sucks, their ratings suck because people don’t believe in them anymore.”
Reality Verify: At UWO, journalism students are taught by their professors to tell the truth, report their tales in a good and balanced method and to offer correct sourcing to every little thing.
UWO journalism professor Vincent Filak stated free speech is significant to a democracy, whether or not our president happens to love it.
“We all have to be allowed to say our speech; otherwise it’s not free speech,” he stated.
Trump stated that he signed an government order a month ago to defend free speech on school campuses.
“And if they don’t give free speech, they lose billions and billions of dollars, and that’s OK,” he stated.
Despite the destructive comments towards the media, Trump closed on a constructive observe.
“With the great and proud people of Wisconsin, we will make America wealthy again,” Trump stated. “We will make America strong again. We will make America safe again and we will make America great again. Thank you, Wisconsin.”
