"I've recently got engaged, and today is Valentine's Day, but I told my fiance I've got a chance to introduce the next president of the United States,"- said Tim Scott, the US Senator from South Carolina, while introducing Trump to the people of his state in North Charleston. Here's a recap of what the former president said and what can scare us in his words.

Just a waste of time

Trump began his rally by wishing Happy Valentines to all in attendance, then quickly jumped to talk about his win by historical margin in preelections in Iowa. He said that he expects South Carolina to be no less successful than that.

"People say that [considering the pools] what I'm doing here is a waste of time, and I agree with them"

Later, after that comment, he accused the former governor of the State- his opponent Nikki Haley of pushing democrats to vote in preelections. It didn't take a long time for President Trump to call her a Marxist and liberal, which even got opinions from the crowd. While further trying to engage people in preelections, he has stated that the preliminary campaign will not last long since Haley is about to fall. After that predicted fall, Trump foresees "taking back a country" in November

What is he really saying?

To picture the actual narrative of Trump, we can look at his quotes; the ones already mentioned "taking back," and Marxist aren't the exceptions. He then returned to his standard in this year's campaign, talking about the country's downfall after the end of his first term. "It's an American nightmare right now. Under the Trump administration, You were far better off; your family was better off, your neighbors were [...], today our Country is going to hell". He added, "No group wasn't doing better than now" when he was sitting in the Oval Office.

Fear as a tool

As always, he then went into listing the things that, in his opinion, were better under his rule, which is simply everything. Of course, he doesn't bring any statistics to that, and he is shouting some words about so-called "them" who are trying to destroy America, but people are buying it. While discussing the border issue, he stated,

"No border in world history looked like this tragedy." That alone shows that scaring everyone becomes politics, and We are far from accusing only Trump's side of it. He certainly is the strongest player on people's emotions. While the discussion raises understanding of other options, the best way for both parties' voters is to look at what the other side fears. And Republicans fear "Bidonomics," communism, lack of free speech, and especially losing America to some unknown power.

When They screw us, We screw them

"We did very well in China; they're not doing well because of what I did and the taxes I made." While discussing global politics, Trump began with China and dealing with them. By showing everything in the world as rippers of America, He continued by stating Biden's plans as Tax raising without compensation. "Just to give money to anyone except Americans"

As Biden showed as a Topic, Trump suggested that Democrats are paying for Haley's campaign, causing her to start against the president as the only chance for Joe Biden to win his second term.

Compiliments from all over the world

At a point in his speech, Donald Trump reacted to Putin- president of Russia's latest interview translated by Associated Press. He said he prefers President Joe Biden over Trump because he is "more experienced" and "more predictable." Trump stated that he took it as a "great compliment"

"I stopped Nord Stream 2, and [Biden] approved it right after I left, so Putin is not a fan of mine actually," Trump said

What are your takes on Trump way of doing politics?
