Former President Trump claimed he won’t protect President Biden’s Social Security benefits and warned of a bloodbath if he loses in November while campaigning for Senate candidate Bernie Moreno in Ohio.

Trump spoke at a windswept airport outside dayton on saturday, praising his chosen candidate in the


“race like an America’s first champion” and a political outsider who has spent his life building communities in Ohio.”

He will be a warrior in Washington,” Trump said, days after securing enough delegates to capture the 2024 Republican nomination.

Secretary of State Frank LaRose and Senator Matt Dolan during the Republican Party primaries Tuesday. LaRose and Moreno have joined the party’s pro-Trump faction, while Dolan is backed by more establishment Republicans, including the GOP. Mike DeWine and former Senator Rob Portman.

Saturday’s rally was organized by Buckeye Values ​​PAC, a group that supports Moreno’s candidacy. But Trump used the podium to deliver a profanity-filled version of his usual rally speech, which again painted an apocalyptic picture of the country if Biden wins a second term.

If I don’t get elected, it will be a bloodbath. …It will be a bloodbath for the country, he warned while talking about the impact of offshoring on the

“If this election isn’t won, I’m not sure there will ever be another election in this country.”

He is currently receiving very harsh bogus treatment from the Democrats, Trump said. And we didn’t stand for that.”

Questions about the profile have been circulating in Republican circles over the past month, leading to frustration among senior Republican operatives over Moreno’s potential vulnerability in a general election, according to seven people directly familiar with conversations about how to handle the issue. They requested anonymity to avoid clashing with Trump and his allies.

Trump also accused Biden of posing a threat to Social Security in his comments as he continued to clean up comments from an interview


this week, during which he appeared open to cuts.

Your social security will disappear, even though he warned of a second Biden term

the president Biden

has pledged to protect and strengthen social security as the country faces a projected budget deficit. With this man in office you cannot get social security because he is destroying our country’s economy. And that includes Medicare, by the way, and American seniors are going to be in big trouble.

I have promised that I will always adhere to Social Security and Medicare. We will always keep it. We will never cut it off,



The comments came after Trump answered a question about Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid in an interview with CNBC by saying:


There’s a lot you can do in terms of rights, in terms of cutting corners and also in terms of theft and poor rights management, massively bad rights management. There’s a huge amount of stuff and a huge number of things you can do.”

stumbled over Moreno and is considered a potential vice presidential candidate.

Trump’s decision to endorse Moreno was a major blow to LaRose, who suffered it

a number of

steps to win his favor. Just days after entering the Senate race, LaRose endorsed Trump for president, reversing an earlier position that the state elections chief should remain politically neutral. The following month, he fired a longtime aide after old tweets surfaced in which the aide criticized Trump.

The winner of Tuesday’s primary will face third-term Sen. Sherrod Brown, considered one of the country’s most vulnerable Democrats, in November.

Brown, first elected in 2006 and unchallenged in his primary this year, has managed to keep his seat even as the state has shifted to the right. In his most recent re-election, in 2018, he defeated then-Rep. Jim Renacci with almost 7 percentage points.

Two years later, Ohio voted 8 points ahead of then-President Trump.
