MUST-SEE: Trump Takes On Libertarians At Convention, Defies Crowd

(Patriot Insider) – Over the weekend, former President Donald Trump made an appearance at the Libertarian Party National Convention, which was held at the Washington Hilton Hotel, and it went exactly the way you think. I know what you’re pondering. Aren’t the Republican Party and Libertarians similar in a thousand and one ways? Yeah, there are a lot of similar beliefs, but the differences that exist run rather deep.

According to Connor Cavanaugh, writer for The Western Journal, Trump was intending to draw the two groups together in unity by pointing out these similarities, cracking a joke by saying, “In the last year, I’ve been indicted by the government on 91 different things. So if I wasn’t a libertarian before, I sure as hell am a libertarian now.”

The former president attempted to appeal to the audience by revealing that if he were to win a second term in the White House he’d be a big proponent of “limited government so that the people can have an unlimited future.”

Unfortunately, though Trump tried his best to make an appeal to all the ways in which Republicans and Libertarians are alike, there were still some issues. Like Trump being booed for example. And he was booed quite a bit. Because, let’s face it, liberalism has infected the Libertarian Party in a big, nasty way.

“And if the American people know anything about the 45th president of the United States it’s that he does not take a challenge quietly,” Cavanaugh wrote.

“Anyone can talk about defending freedom, but I’ve actually put everything on the line to resist these despots … And I stand before you tonight as your best hope of defeating the weaponized Biden, and the very evil regime that his people, because it’s probably not him because he doesn’t know where the hell he is,” Trump told the audience.

“As the flurry of discontent rose, Trump began to hit back against the riled crowd with quips reminding the Libertarian Party just how little they’ve achieved at the national scale. Defiantly, he told the crowd they should nominate him for the presidency, according to The New York Times,” the report continued.

“If you want to lose, don’t do that. Keep getting your 3 percent every four years,” he zinged.

“Mr. Trump’s speech was without modern precedent: the presumptive nominee of a major political party giving a prime-time address at another party’s convention,” the Times noted of Trump’s address.

“The former president has been attempting to campaign in areas that may not have 100 percent support for him already, something opponent President Joe Biden could never hope to do. The former New York business mogul-turned-politician held a campaign rally on Thursday in the Bronx, not an area known for its heavy conservative lean, in hopes of pulling further votes in November,” Cavanaugh penned.

And while you could spot more than a handful of “Make America Great Again” hats in the audience, which clearly indicates a large number of Libertarians would rather have Trump in office than a liberal, the level of boos he received is indicative that he’s not a beloved figure among this political party.

“The actions taken currently by Trump and his campaign team can very well be the difference between a second term for him or for Sleepy Joe,” Cavanaugh said, wrapping up his article. “We should be thankful that we have a candidate willing to go into unfamiliar territory and make his sales pitch — politicians like that don’t come along every day.”

  1. I think when it comes to going to another party’s convention shows he is the only person in the political arena who thinks outside the box. Besides that, I think he went to them was because he just wanted to find out how it feels to be booed. He’s just refreshing his perspectives in order to get energized again after the witch hunt in NY. He was a little lethargic after being forced to sit in a liberal courtroom for 8 hours a day. Which by the way was also a liberal Democrat judges doing. There are hundreds if not thousands of defendants charged with real evidence proving guilt and the possibility of a life sentence or 2 who aren’t mandated to sit in the courtroom during the trial. And on top of that, President Trump was gagged from exercising his first amendment rights. He was even warned that “any sign of him giving an outburst of any form whether vocal or physical and he’d be immediately charged with contempt with possibility of being fined and he’d be removed from the court and remanded to the jail pending completion of the trial. It seems to be that real criminals have more rights than President Trump does.
