President Donald Trump has praised Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) for heckling Barack Obama’s “lie” in Congress.
During his first major campaign speech, Trump put “the swamp,” the media, “RINOs,” and “the deep state” on notice.
He argues that he should be elected in 2024 because he is the only politician who is willing to take on the establishment.
Trump said: “We need a fighter who can stand up to the left, stand up to the swamp, stand up to the media, stand up to the deep state.
“Am I allowed to say stand up to the RINOs, too?
“There’s only one president who has ever challenged the entire establishment in Washington, and with your vote next year, we will do it again.
“Together we will complete the unfinished business of making America great again!
“I’m more angry now and more committed now than I ever was.
“To change the whole system, you need a president that can take on the whole system.”
Trump then brought up Obama’s heckler, Republican Congressman Wilson.
Wilson famously shouted out “you lie” during one of Obama’s State of the Union speeches.
It was the heckle that was heard around the world and one that the Democrats and their allies in the media struggle to forget.
However, Trump overruled the Democrats by offering praise for Wilson.
“That voice was so beautiful as he called it out in Congress — Congressman Joe Wilson, I thought it was brilliant.
“See that was done from the heart…
“You took a little heat at the time.
“People love you for that because it showed love of your country.”

Trump took some swipes at Democrat President Joe Biden too.
As Slay News reported, Trump commented that “every day” is “April Fool’s day” in Biden’s America.
“We are at the brink of World War 3 in Ukraine,” Trump said.
“And we need a peace deal right now.
“I would have a peace deal within 24 hours.
“We’re begging foreign nations for oil when we have far more oil than they have and then on top of it, we sell China millions and millions of barrels of cheap oil.
“I think of the United States every day as April Fool’s day.
“We have open borders when they should be closed, it’s April fool’s day.
“Who would allow this?”
“We’re going to defeat the cult of gender ideology, and reaffirm that God created two genders called men and women.
“They stopped the wall construction.
“We built hundreds of miles of wall, but they stopped the construction.
“Three weeks, it could have been — the addition, because we added a lot more than we originally said we’re going to do.”
“We had to wait two and a half years because the Democrats sued us — we had 11 different lawsuits — we won all of the lawsuits.
“I actually got a lot of the money, I took it out of the military because I considered it to be defense of our country.”
