Beto Says We’ll “Lose More Lives” and “We’ll Lose America” If Trump Wins Reelection

Appearing on “Meet the Press,” struggling 2020 candidate Beto O’Rourke claimed that Trump is an “existential threat” and that “we’ll lose America” if he wins reelection in 2020.

Partial Transcript:

“Democrats have to address those issues and deliver on those issues,” he said about kitchen-table issues like health care and the economy.

“But we also have to call out the existential threat, to use the word that you just employed, that Donald Trump represents right now. Not only are we going to lose more lives, I’m confident that we will lose this country and our democracy, the longer he stays in office. So that is the urgency behind what I’m talking about.”

That’s why he says he wants to focus on taking his message outside of the early-voting states to voters across the country.

“If everyone counts, we can’t just say that. We have to demonstrate that. And I don’t think, at a time that this campaign, this selection for who will be the nominee, has become nationalized, that that will be lost on the people of Iowa”

“There is a concerted, organized attack against immigrants, against people of color, against those who do not look like or pray like or love like the majority in this country. And this moment will define us one way or another. And if we do not wake up to it, I am convinced that we’ll lose America, this country, in our sleep. And we cannot allow that to happen.”
