‘So here’s the thing—it’s so terrible what’s happening,’ Trump told
‘You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay?’ he said.
‘I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad,’ Trump continued.
Trump winks prior to receiving a bowl of shamrocks from Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar at a White House reception on Thursday. He says his followers are ‘very tough’
‘But the left plays it cuter and tougher. Like with all the nonsense that they do in Congress … with all this invest[igations]—that’s all they want to do is –you know, they do things that are nasty.
Claiming nearly 100,000 members across the country, Bikers for Trump is a major grassroots organization that supports the Trump administration’s agenda.
In August, Trump welcomed a delegation of some 180 members to his golf club in Bedminster, where the rowdy crew jeered the press and chanted ‘USA, USA’ and ‘Build the wall!’
Trump’s remarks came as he lamented that, in his view, former Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan acted meekly in comparison to the current Democratic leadership of the House.
Trump said that House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Mark Meadows, a North Carolina Republican, and his conservative colleague from Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan wanted to play hardball and subpoena those on the left, but that Ryan wouldn’t allow it.
‘Paul Ryan wouldn’t give the right to have any subpoenas,’ Trump told Breitbart News. ‘Okay? Now in all fairness, Meadows and Jordan and all these guys, they wanted to go tougher, but they weren’t allowed to by leadership.’
