President Trump Slams Socialism in U.N. Speech

During a speech at the United Nations, President Trump slammed socialism and claimed it destroys societies.

According to The Hill:

President Trump on Tuesday decried socialism during an address to the United Nations, lambasting it as a “destroyer of societies” in comments that doubled as a swipe at some of his Democratic rivals.


“One of the most serious challenges our countries face is the specter of socialism. It’s the wrecker of nations and the destroyer of societies,” Trump said during his 35-minute address to the General Assembly.

Trump cited Venezuela as an example of the failures of socialism, describing embattled President Nicolás Maduro as a “Cuban puppet.” The Trump administration has backed opposition leader Juan Guaidó but Maduro has remained in power.

“Events in Venezuela remind us all that socialism and communism are not about justice, they are not about equality, they are not about lifting up the poor and they are certainly not about the good of the nation,” Trump said.

President Trump’s slam of socialism was seen as directed at Venezuela and some of the Democrat candidates running for president.
