After watching Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s raucous Nevada victory speech, there was one line in particular that stood out to Glenn Beck.
“Here is the thing that took my breath away,” Beck said Thursday on The Glenn Beck Radio Program before he played the audio from the billionaire businessman’s speech.
“You know, I get greedy. I want money, money. Now, I’m going to — I’ll tell you what we’re going to do, right? We get greedy, right?” Trump said to rousing applause from his supporters. “Now we’re going to get greedy for the United States. We’re going to grab and grab and grab.”
Beck’s radio show co-host Stu Burguiere chimed in, saying that Trump’s comments are “at odds with what he’s done his entire career,” suggesting that the billionaire has been “greedy for himself and abused the United States in the process.”
“But you missed the correction that he made mid-course. He said, ‘I get greedy. And you know I — you know what we’re going to do,’” Beck said. “He said, ‘You know what I — you know what we’re going to do.’”
Beck went on to say he does not want to be “part of a nation that grabs and grabs and grabs.”
“What makes America great is that America is good, and that is not good,” Beck argued. “We’re greedy? Since when has greed and ‘grab and grab and grab’ been good? That’s not good.”
