Donna Brazile Issues Warning to Democrats about Trump: ‘I’ve Never Seen Anything Like This’

Former DNC Chair Donna Brazile has warned Democrats that there’s an unprecedented “movement” of support behind President Donald Trump, the likes of which she has “never seen before.”

During a panel discussion on ABC News’s “This Week,” Brazile and The Atlantic columnist Reihan Salam issued warnings to the Democrat establishment about the 2024 election.

They warned that the Democrats are about to get crushed by President Trump again.

Trump has created a “movement” that Brazile says she has “never seen anything like.”

Meanwhile, Salam said Trump “speaks in a very accessible way that could be meaningful in a general election.”

TRANSCRIPT:

BRAZILE: “Because I think the Democrats understand that, you know, you can beat the superficial which is what we’re seeing on the Republican side with substance, and the substance to policies, the practices of the Biden/Harris administration, improving people’s lives.

“Look, this past week, this movement to reduce prescription drug prices, that’s going to help Democrats.

“But I have to say something because, George, I’m old enough to say this.

“I’ve seen two movements outside of the social justice movements in my life on the political side.

“One was the Reagan movement.

“Reagan had a hold on his base.

“The country at large, they saw him as someone who was willing to stand up for American values, whatever that might have meant.

“Now I thought it was reactionary.

“The other movement I saw was Barack Obama: ‘Hope and Change.’

“That galvanized the American people.

“I’ve never seen anything like this with Donald Trump.

“I mean, ‘what doesn’t kill you make you stronger?’

“I mean, being convict — I mean, being indicted, that’s making him stronger?

“Raising $10 million – using an ugly mug shot to raise money?

“This is a movement.

“And anyone who thinks that you can apply the old political rules to try to defeat this candidate based on he’s scary, he’s ugly, whatever you might want to call him, this is a movement.

“And we have to respect the fact that it’s a movement.”

SALAM: “I’ll also just note that he’s been incredibly shrewd and disciplined when he’s focused on the political.

“This week, for example, he was trying to appeal to UAW members to talk about, for example, this effort to transition away from combustion engine vehicles.

“Now, that might not sound like a very wonky thing, but that’s what he’s very focused on and disciplined about when he’s campaigning.

“And I think for a lot of people, they feel like the talk about litigation — you know, these various charges, they consider that noise that is baked in, and when he’s focused on the issues, he speaks in a very accessible way that could be meaningful in a general election.”
