Trump Quoted Out Of Context By Biden, Media

Left-wing anti-Trump media outlets have spread typical “misinformation” regarding a statement the former president made about the United States automobile industry. In an Ohio rally Trump stated that there would be a “bloodbath” for car manufacturers should President Biden be reelected. Multiple news outlets — as well as an X post from Biden’s campaign — have twisted his remark into a hoax that Trump threatened violence should Biden be re-elected.

Sources that quoted Trump out of context include Rolling Stone, NBC News, CBS News and Politico.

Trump’s “bloodbath” prediction at the rally has a lengthy preamble in which he spoke about the automobile plants China is constructing in Mexico. He admonished the Communist nation that cars from these plants would be slapped with a 100% tariff in the United States.

President Biden, whose family has significant financial interest in Chinese companies, would likely not take the same approach to the Chinese auto industry’s attempt to penetrate the U.S. market. Their much cheaper product would devastate the American auto industry, and this was clearly the context of the “bloodbath” quote.

Trump said this immediately following his comments on Chinese automobiles: “Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the whole — That’s going to be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country.”

The Biden campaign quoted only the last part of his comments on X: “Trump: If I don’t get elected, it’s gonna be a bloodbath. It’s gonna be a bloodbath for the country.”
Politico did clarify in their piece that it was “unclear what the former president meant exactly.”

The often-unhinged, far-left commentator Keith Olbermann posted on X: “This is a terrorist threat. FBI Detain him as he leaves the stage.”

Even if Trump were referring to darker events beyond car sales with his remark, it would be tame compared to what leftists have quipped on a regular basis.

Chris Cuomo said on CNN regarding the Black Lives Matter protests: “Who says protests have to be peaceful?” Similarly, then-Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) said in a 2020 statement regarding the George Floyd riots: “Protesters should not let up.” Finally, Loretta Lynch (D), Attorney General under former President Obama (D), said in a 2017 Facebook video to Congress: “There will be blood in the streets.” The context of her remarks seems to be anti-Trump resistance.

The U.S. mainstream media is run by the hippy generation of the 1960s and 1970s — and their selective outrage regarding violent protests reflects this.
