Trump Calls Media and Hollywood Elites ‘Stupid People,’ Says He’ll ‘Stand Strong for Family, Faith, God and Country’

At overflowing Dallas event, president goes after 'radical Left,' which 'has no respect for will of the American people'

President Donald Trump in Dallas led yet another raucous campaign rally — this one in Dallas — on Thursday night just mere hours after Energy Secretary Rick Perry said he would soon step aside, sources said, as House Democrats continue conducting their impeachment inquiry against the president.

The rally comes at a key period of time for Trump.

His July 25 phone call with the president of Ukraine — the transcript of which he released — has been a hotly debated topic on Capitol Hill.

As part of the growing congressional probe, the House Democrats subpoenaed Perry on Thursday, as Fox News noted.

Republicans have begun expressing some worry that Texas might not go for Trump in 2020.

Trump in 2016 carried the state by nine points.

“Democrats have pointed to demographic trends as well as the fact that Republican Sen. Ted Cruz won [his] re-election [to the Senate] by just over 2 points last year as evidence that the second-most populous state could soon be in play,” as Fox News pointed out.

During the rally, Trump lashed out at the usual suspects — including the “fake news” media, the Hollywood elites, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D), and former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

He said the only message the “radical lefties” will understand is the election results next November.
