Trump cuts deep into Democrats, avoids race

President Trump capitalized on a revved-up rally Thursday in Cincinnati to tear into Democrats, attacking four liberal congresswomen of color and their party’s urban leaders, and firing on those he could be face in 2020.

[Tweet “The Democrat party is now being led by four left-wing extremists who reject everything that we hold dear”]  Trump said of Omar and her fellow House Democrats Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts.

“No one has paid a higher price for the far-left destructive agenda than Americans living in our nation’s inner cities,” Trump said, drawing cheers from the mostly white crowd in the packed arena on the banks of the Ohio River. “We send billions and billions and billions for years and years and it’s stolen money, and it’s wasted money.”

The rally was the first for Trump since the “Send her back” chant at a North Carolina rally was denounced by Democrats and unnerved Republicans fearful of a presidential campaign fought on racial lines.

For the most part, Trump delivered his standard stump speech, but could not resist delivering his review of the Detroit debates.

“That’s was long, long television,” Trump said. “The Democrats spent more time attacking Barack Obama than they did attacking me, practically.”
