Trump puts socialism on trial for 2020 elections

President Trump has given notice that the lurch to socialism by the Democrats will be a key issue on which the Republicans will contest the 2020 elections.

Trump flagged his intentions during his State of the Union address on February 5 - when addressing the deteriorating situation in Venezuela:


“We stand with the Venezuelan people in their noble quest for freedom—and we condemn the brutality of the Maduro regime, whose socialist policies have turned that nation from being the wealthiest in South America into a state of abject poverty and despair.

Here, in the United States, we are alarmed by new calls to adopt socialism in our country. America was founded on liberty and independence—not government coercion, domination, and control. We are born free, and we will stay free.
Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”

The Democrats’ enthusiastic embrace of a Resolution introduced on 7 February into the United States Congress by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) that “it is the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal “—confirmed - in Republican circles - the spectre of America eventually becoming a socialist country.

Now top White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow has ratcheted up this fear during a speechgiven at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on 28 February:
“I want you to put socialism on trial, I don’t want us to stand idly by. I don’t want to let this stuff fester. I want it challenged. I want it debated. I want it rebutted. And I want to convict socialism.”
