President Donald Trump took on socialism and dictatorships in his address today at the United Nations General Assembly.
The president scolded countries like Venezuela and the Soviet Union for implementing dictatorships based on socialist ideologies that have brutalized their citizens, and the silence after his statement was telling. What should have evoked a round of applause or a standing ovation was met with utter silence and reluctant claps.
"We call for the full restoration of democracy and political freedoms in Venezuela," the president said. "It's not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented."
"Listen to this," said Pat Gray. "Nothing. He's waiting for the applause. That is unbelievable. Keep in mind: he's sitting in a room full of socialist. He's sitting in a room full of socialist dictators and the dictator puppets and these people loathe the United States of America. They hate capitalism. They hate the liberty and freedom we have. They want big government and all that brings to people."
The president was praised by conservatives for his strong rhetoric and his unwavering stand for American sovereignty.
