“We’re gonna win this thing”


On Friday, Republican candidate JD Vance, who won former President Donald Trump’s endorsement for the U.S. Senate in Ohio, explained why he thinks Trump is backing him in the close race, recounting Breitbart News Saturday that Trump knows that Vance will continue the America First program.

Calling the endorsement “extremely important and powerful,” Vance paid tribute to Trump for getting involved in the primary races and openly supporting those he believes will benefit the country. While Vance said the campaign was going “very well”, he said the race was “definitely close”. However, Trump’s endorsement is an “incredible boost for us in stride.”

“So I felt confident before I got the approval. Man, I feel very confident now. I honestly think if we were 20 points behind we’d probably still win, but we’re going to win this thing now,” he said, talking about how he will eventually win the general election as well and bring a “different perspective to the Senate.”

Vance briefly acknowledged that he was not an early Trump supporter, but he had a “conversation” after seeing how violently the swamp and the establishment tried to destroy the president.

“And that made me realize, you know, if all these corrupt people ‘were going after him, he had to ‘do something special and do something good’.

“And really think that’s ultimately what it’s all about. Trump sees me as an agenda guy,” Vance said, adding that Trump recognizes he will be an ally in the Senate as well.

America First, Vance continued, is more than “just slogans and talking points.” He mentioned his GOP challenger, Josh Mandel, who he said endorsed a European no-fly zone in Russia and, on the other hand, called those who pushed against Republican escalation “Russia first of all”.

“Trump, on the contrary, is a rejection of the idea that we should give the establishment more money to fight stupid wars. And I just think on the substantive agenda, I’m more with Trump than anybody else, and that’s ultimately why he endorsed me,” Vance said.

Vance said Trump called him and explained why he endorsed him, and they discussed his potential Democratic challenger, Tim Ryan, who Trump sees as a stronger candidate than people give him credit for. He claims to be a Trump Democrat in some ways, Vance explained, before talking about his own success in the GOP primary debates. He said there is a difference between someone who knows the issues and politicians with their “consultant-approved lines”.

“I’ll actually tell you what I think,” Vance said, adding that Trump recognizes him as someone who can “go along with Tim Ryan.”

“Only in politics can you fail for 20 years, like Tim Ryan did in Congress, and try to get promoted to the US Senate. I don’t think it’s going to work, but the only way it doesn’t work is if we send the right guy to fight the Democrats in the general election, of course, and that will be me,” Vance mentioned.

In the endorsement, Trump listed a series of specific reasons why he supports Vance.

“He’s tough on the border, tough on crime, understands how to use taxes and tariffs to hold China accountable, will fight to take down Big Tech, and was a warrior in the rigged and stolen presidential election,” reads in part in Trump’s endorsement. .

Vance spoke about each issue, telling Breitbart News Saturday that the border crisis, in particular, could “spell the death knell for the country as we know it”. He was personally affected by the drug epidemic in his family and identified it as a major problem. He also said that wage competition for the middle and working class is a major problem, adding that the United States “cannot let multinational corporations import a servant class from Central America whenever they need it. of workers”.

“They have to train their own staff,” he said.

He also blasted Democrats who are “very open” to giving illegal immigrants the right to vote, which he says will prevent a Republican from winning a national election again. Democrats, he said, want to turn the electorate around with people who have broken our laws, “but that’s why we need people like me” to speak out.

The border crisis “is the major crisis we are facing as a country right now”, he said before also talking about the crime wave, making it clear that law enforcement must feel protected and that “Soros-backed prosecutors” must be supported.

On the China issue, Vance lambasted the many politicians who say they want to hold China accountable, adding that he is the only one who has said, “We need Trump’s tariffs, we need to toughen them up.”

The United States will not fight China by doing the same thing we have been doing for 30 years, Vance said.

On Big Tech, Vance said politicians need to update the antitrust framework and work to declare these huge corporations common carriers.

“I don’t think Twitter and Facebook should be able to discriminate against Donald Trump because they don’t like what he says, or a conservative middle class in Ohio because they don’t like what that person says. “, he said, adding that he is also ready to talk about making it illegal for Big Tech to steal an individual’s data.

And finally, Vance said he continues to stand up for election integrity, making it clear that the country needs to get rid of “election season” and return to “election day.” He also said voter identification is critical and the collection of ballots must be stopped.

“Trump is right on this point. The more we learn about 2020, the more we realize there were significant issues. We cannot drop the issue. Everyone always says look forward; you can’t look past it. Well, part of the anticipation is making sure we have a safe and secure election the next time we go to the polls. It’s not about looking into the past,” Vance said. “It’s about making sure we have a real country.”

Ohio’s Election Day is less than three weeks away, May 3.
