Trump rips ‘woke’ generals, Biden in first post-presidential rally: ‘I’m trying to save American democracy’

Former President Donald Trump took the stage at his first rally since leaving the White House on Saturday in Wellington, Ohio. In front of thousands of supporters, Trump took aim at “woke” military generals, President Joe Biden’s immigration policies, and critical race theory.

“The Biden administration issued new rules pushing twisted critical race theory … into our military,” Trump said. “Our generals and our admirals are now focused more on this nonsense than they are on our enemies.”

“You see these generals lately on television? They are woke,” Trump told the crowd in northeast Ohio. “Our military will be incapable of fighting and incapable of taking orders.”

Trump was likely referring to comments made last week by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, who defended critical race theory being taught in the military, and said he wanted to “understand the white rage.”

Trump appointed Milley to the position in December 2018.

Trump pledged to “break up big tech monopolies, reject left-wing cancel culture, and we will restore the right to free speech in America.”

The former president hammered Biden over the current border crisis.

“We have to defund his reckless immigration policies and restore our southern border to where it was,” Trump declared.

Trump, who will visit the U.S. southern border on June 30 with Texas Gov. Greg Abbot, claimed that Vice President Kamala Harris only went to Texas because he is traveling there this week.
