Trump Vows To ‘Knock Off Biden Crime Family’ During Huge Rally

Donald Trump vowed to a crowd of around 20,000 people in Las Vegas on Sunday to “knock off the Biden crime family” in the November election.

The former president kept the raucous crowd engaged as temperatures hit 100 degrees at a venue around six miles from the famed Vegas strip, vowing to become the first GOP presidential candidate to win Nevada since George W. Bush.

“If we win Nevada, we win the whole thing,” Trump said. “With your help, we’re going to win Nevada,” he added. “We’re going to defeat your Biden-loving, radical left Sen. Jacky Rosen, who’s terrible, by the way. She’s a terrible senator.

“We’re going to knock off the Biden crime family — as they’re a Biden family of crime, including the fact that they’ve weaponized the Department of Justice like has never happened in this country,” Trump said. “We’re going to end the weak and failed regime of Crooked Joe Biden, the worst president in the history of our country, and we’re going to make America great again.”

Early on, Trump railed against President Biden’s horrendous immigration and border policies, which have led to an influx of as many as 10 million illegal immigrations, according to some estimates. Biden signed scores of executive orders on his first day in office, including reversing nearly all of Trump’s border policies.


“For 3½ years, the people of Nevada have had a front-row seat to Joe Biden’s evil and criminal obliteration of our southern border,” Trump said. “It was criminal what he’s done.”

Biden’s recent actions to tackle his administration’s asylum challenges are merely a political tactic for the upcoming election, Trump said.

“Did you see the other day he came out with a little plan: ‘Let’s make it a little bit tougher,’ ” Trump continued, “because he’s getting killed in the polls. We’re leading here by like 12 points. You know that. All we have to do is stop the steal and we have it made: Just stop the steal. We can’t let that happen again.

“Last week, Crooked Joe signed an executive order that is pro-invasion, pro-child trafficking, pro-woman trafficking, pro-human trafficking, and pro-drug dealers. It’s a pro-drug dealer bill. It’s weak, it’s ineffective,” he said.


Previously, the Trump campaign warned potential rally attendees to consider the high heat index forecast for Sunday.

“Now, it’s not too hot out here, right?” Trump asked, taking the stage. “You know it’s not bad. I heard it was going to be terrible. I heard it was going to be so hot — did you see? — we put out a notice saying, ‘Don’t come.’

“So only 20,000 people showed up,” he joked.

HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher said during his Friday program that Biden’s executive order on immigration won’t really boost his reelection chances and is doomed to failure.

Biden issued an executive order to halt new asylum requests once the number of migrants crossing into the U.S. hits an average of 2,500 per day over a week. The order comes after months of Biden stating he could not intervene in the immigration crisis. Maher commented on his show that while immigration is a critical issue for Biden’s reelection, this executive order is unlikely to satisfy any party involved.

“I think if Biden loses this election, it’s gonna be because of two things,” Maher said. “He’s old, and he can’t get past that issue, and people just hate that about him. And immigration. I mean, just on a political level, I don’t think they could’ve handled it worse. Because now what’s going on … he’s finally, after saying he couldn’t do anything, he’s gonna issue an executive order. By the way, this is the same executive order Trump tried to get through the courts, and they didn’t let him do it.”

“But he’s gonna finally try it six months before the election, which says we’ll put a cap of 2,500 now asylum seekers coming in,” the comedian noted further. “If it passes 2,500, if it’s 2,501, then we automatically close the border. Fire marshal says, ‘No more.’ He’s gonna come here and close the club. And if you don’t have a stamp on your hand, you can’t get back in.”
