Donald Trump’s Shouty Easter Message
On Easter Sunday, former president Donald Trump posted a message to his detractors on Truth Social. Trump posted the politically-charged, all-caps message, attacking those individuals he believes “dream endlessly of destroying our country,” including “weak & pathetic RINOS” and “radical left Democrats, socialists Marxists, & communists.”
“HAPPY EASTER TO ALL, INCLUDING THOSE THAT DREAM ENDLESSLY OF DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY BECAUSE THEY ARE INCAPABLE OF DREAMING ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE, THOSE THAT ARE SO INCOMPETENT THEY DON’T REALIZE THAT HAVING A BORDER AND POWERFUL WALL IS A GOOD THING, & HAVING VOTER I.D., ALL PAPER BALLOTS, & SAME DAY VOTING WILL QUICKLY END MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD, & TO ALL OF THOSE WEAK & PATHETIC RINOS, RADICAL LEFT DEMOCRATS, SOCIALISTS MARXISTS, & COMMUNISTS WHO ARE KILLING OUR NATION, REMEMBER, WE WILL BE BACK!” the former president wrote.
Trump’s Easter message follows a trying week in which he was charged in a criminal probe, becoming the first former president in American history to do so.
He turned himself into New York police on Tuesday and entered a not-guilty plea to 34 counts of making false business records. The accusations are the result of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s investigation into an alleged $130,000 hush money payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election. Daniels claims she had an affair with the former president in 2006 and the investigation centers on that claim. Trump has denied the affair and continues to insist on his innocence.
Trump’s detractors made fun of the former president for his tweet in the meanwhile.
“Trump with a devout, uplifting, and inspiring Easter message for the faithful,” tweeted Ron Filipkowski, an attorney who frequently voices criticisms against the former president.
Former Democratic congressional candidate Christopher Hale contrasted President Joe Biden’s official statement describing the festival as “a day of hope and joy, regeneration and rebirth” with Trump’s post.
“Today, we hold close the Easter message that nothing—not even death—can match the power of faith, hope, and love,” Biden’s statement reads. “And we remember Jesus’ sacrifice and recommit ourselves to love God with all our hearts and to love our neighbors as ourselves, embracing His call to treat one another with compassion.”
But the position was backed by his supporters.
“President Trump takes no days off from fighting for the American people. Happy Easter!” tweeted conservative influencer Brigitte Gabriel.
