I believe he was speaking about the 'institution' of slavery.At 1.48
He says something about an “evil institution that has plagued humanity for thousands of years.”
I don’t understand the literal context of this statement Or the structure of the sentences.
Does anyone else get this?
" By tearing down Washington and Jefferson, these radicals would tear down the very heritage for which men gave their lives to win the Civil War; they would erase the memory that inspired those soldiers to go to their deaths..........They would tear down the principles that propelled the abolition of slavery in America and, ultimately, around the world, ending an evil institution that had plagued humanity for thousands and thousands of years."
'They' are the radicals tearing down statues and stuff. I think Trump is alluding to the fact that the radicals do not truly care about black lives but their own agendas. The 'evil institution' I believe he is speaking of the institution of slavery. Yes, we all know slavery still exists, but it is not a state sanctioned practice that is as openly accepted as it has been in the past.
The way Trump speaks is pretty interesting I think. His sentence and phrase structure is definitely 'unique' at times. Many people think he is an idiot based on how he speaks, but I think he is a semi-genius (or people around him are) and that it is all by design. You'll never see him coming if you think that he isn't capable of tying his own shoes!
