Trump released a statement via social media. Find out what else he said in the shocking video.
Trump Appears to Claim That Republicans Eat Their Young
In a video posted to Truth Social, Donald Trump made a bizarre claim that “republicans eat their young,” prompting supporters and critics alike to scratch their heads.
Attacks on His Opponents Are Nothing New
Trump peppered his video with pointed attacks at other politicians, including pejorative nicknames for Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney and Bill Barr, claiming their campaigns did not start out effectively “because they really don’t have the skill or the talent to do so.”
Republicans Probably Don’t Actually Eat Their Young
After claiming that Mitt Romney should have easily beaten former President Obama in the 2012 election, Trump went on to say “But remember, republicans eat their young, they really do. They eat their young. Terrible statement, but it’s true.”
Claim Causes Confusion
It is unclear what exactly Trump meant by this statement, but he continued by discussing loyalty within the party. “That’s the problem with so many in our party. They just don’t have the loyalty and the strength to stick together.”
Trump Addresses Republican Infighting
He continued, “They go after people who are on their side rather than the radical left democrats that are destroying our country.”
A Call for Unity
Capping off with a call for unification between republicans to get Biden out of office, the video abruptly comes to an end with no further explanation of the claim that republicans eat their young.
Romney and Paul Held Summit but Left Trump Out
The video appears to be a response to the summit held by Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney, gathering “non-indicted” republican candidates for the 2024 presidential election. Nikki Haley, Mike Pence and Chris Christie were among attendees.
Video Making Multiple Appearances
The video has been posted at least twice on Trump’s Truth Social account.
The video is somewhat contradictory, as he blasts his opponents by name using insults and then laments that the candidates have no loyalty to one another.
More Anti-Biden Rhetoric
Toward the end of what the Huffington Post referred to as a “rambling video,” Trump pushes the narrative that Joe Biden is “the most incompetent president” that his supporters “don’t want to help.”
Trump Rallies Republicans to Oust Biden
He said, “The Republican Party should unify and they should unify fast. We need Joe Biden out of there. He’s destroying America.”
Teleprompter May Be to Blame for Strange Comment
It is possible that Trump was reading from a teleprompter and some think the words may have read, “republicans eat their own,” which would make sense in the context.
Trump’s Previous Comments Draw Questions
But this was not the first time Trump had made the claim that republicans eat their young.
Last week in a post on Truth Social, Trump said “If [Romney and Paul] fought as hard against Obama as they do against President Donald J. Trump, they would never have lost. But remember, Republicans eat their young.”
He repeated this statement in the new video.
Patterns of Confusion
