Former GOP presidential contender Herman Cain said late Monday that the media and establishment Republicans are plotting Donald Trump’s downfall.
“One of the reasons that I continue to set the record straight every day, as many of you know, is because you have a lot of people in the media and the establishment that are trying to bring down Trump with lies,” he told listeners during an evening rally in Macon, Ga.
“Let me tell you a little something about the definition of an outsider,” the 2012 Republican White House hopeful added.
“If you are born in the United States of America you are an insider, through-and-through. There are no outsiders. If you’re born here, you’re not an outsider.”
The former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza then linked Trump with the principles of the nation’s founding.
“’We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal,’” Cain said, reciting the Declaration of Independence.
“’That they are endowed by their creator – not man’s, not the Democrats – with certain inalienable rights, among these life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,’” he continued.
“It says, ‘when any form of government becomes destructive of those ideals – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it,” Cain added.
“We have some altering and abolishing to do with a new leader in the White House. My name is Herman Cain”…
