President Trump, at a MAGA campaign rally Friday night in Missouri, told supporters people in the Department of Justice and the FBI are “now being exposed.” The president said there are mostly “great people” — 95 percent — at the FBI and DOJ but the “real bad ones” are now gone.
“But there’s a lingering stench and we’re going to get rid of that too,” Trump said of any remaining corruption.
“Just look at what is now being exposed in our Department of Justice and the FBI,” he said. “Look at what’s going on. Look at what’s going on. And I want to tell you, we have great people in the Department of Justice. We have great people.”
PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP: We need Josh in the Senate to fight for Missouri and really to fight for our whole country. We love our country.
And we’ll never ever get a vote from Claire McCaskill, and she’s been saying very nice things. She’s been saying very nice things. But you know what? She’ll never ever vote for us.
She just, as an example, Brett Kavanaugh — a fantastic man, fantastic — she just announced she won’t vote for him. Can you believe it? And he was born — you talk about central casting — he was born — they were saying it 10 years ago about him — he was born for the U.S. Supreme Court. He was born for it. And it’s going to happen.
But she just announced she’s not voting — and, she’ll vote against everything we want to do, including tax cuts. Figure that one out. So Claire McCaskill will never ever vote our way because she loves the swamp. She’s part of the swamp and we have a true swamp in Washington.
Just look at what is now being exposed in our Department of Justice and the FBI. Look at what’s going on. Look at what’s going on. And I want to tell you, we have great people in the Department of Justice. We have great people.
These are people, I really believe — you take a poll, I’ve got to be at 95 percent — but you’ve had some real bad ones. You’ve seen what’s happened at the FBI. They’re all gone. They’re all gone. They’re all gone.
But there’s a lingering stench and we’re going to get rid of that too.
Claire McCaskill — when I read about this sitting a beautiful, beautiful house called the White House. Did anybody ever hear of the White House?
She revealed her true colors when she pretended to tour the state in an R.V., while she was actually flying around the state in her luxurious private airplane. And honestly, this is before I ever thought about running — by the way, we decided to run, how did we do? How did we do?
A senator, a good guy, said to me the other day — it was very interesting because we were talking about, frankly, Judge Kavanaugh — and I said we have to fight for him, not worry about the other side. And by the way, women are for that more than anybody would understand.
And a really good guy, I mean, we usually agree. He said, sir, I’ve been in politics for 25 years. I’ve been a senator for many years. I really know what I’m doing.
I said, sir, I’ve been in politics for two and a half years and I’m the President of the United States, so (ph).
