President Donald Trump has issued an ominous warning that his supporters are ‘tough’ and things could get ‘very bad.’
‘So here’s the thing—it’s so terrible what’s happening,’ Trump told Breitbart News in an Oval Office interview published on Thursday, when asked about House Democrats’ hardball investigation tactics.
‘You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay?’ he said.
‘I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad,’ Trump continued.
‘But the left plays it cuter and tougher. Like with all the nonsense that they do in Congress … with all this invest[igations]—that’s all they want to do is –you know, they do things that are nasty. Republicans never played this,’ the president said.
Trump’s remarks came as he lamented that, in his view, former Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan acted meekly in comparison to the current Democratic leadership of the House.
