Former President Donald Trump has slammed Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) for saying Ohio voters should “kill and confront” the MAGA movement, calling Ryan a “militant left-winger” during a Save America rally in Ohio on Saturday.
Trump urged voters in Ohio to support Republican JD Vance instead of Ryan, “the fake far-left Democrat running for the U.S. Senate.”
Trump noted that Ryan is running on the “I love Donald Trump” policy, but called on the Ohio congressman to vote alongside President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D- CA) and Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).
Trump also called out Ryan for falsely campaigning as a Trump-aligned candidate, despite his pro-Democrat voting record in the House.

“People call me, ‘you know, Tim Ryan did a commercial, I think he really likes you.’ He doesn’t like me. He doesn’t like me and I don’t like him. He’s been terrible,” Trump said. “Tim Ryan is a left-wing activist who lies to your face, acts like he’s was my political friend, posing as a moderate so he could get elected and betray everything you believe in.”
Trump pointed out that Ryan voted more with Biden than he did with Trump when Trump was in office.
“He’s not a moderate. He’s radical left, 100% voted for these disaster Biden policies. Tim Ryan claims to be for Trump. But when I was president, he only voted with us 16 % of the time and those are great policies for Ohio,” Trump said. no matter how bad it is.
Trump then slammed Ryan for saying, “We have to kill and confront” the MAGA movement.
“He recently called on his supporters to kill, kill the MAGA movement. Then he said, ‘Oh, it’s not working well in Ohio. Let’s get it over with. He wanted to kill, did you see that? We gotta kill MAGA, kill MAGA,” Trump said.
“Now he says it’s okay. If I say we’d like to raise our voice a bit to the radical left, ‘He’s a traitor, he’s a betrayal, he’s horrible. Oh, he’s such a bad person. No, he voted for it, he wanted to, and he said it very strongly: Kill MAGA,” Trump added.
“I don’t think it works if I say so, but you know what? We better be careful and we better be strong and we better be smart because these people are coming after you and it’s not gonna be good, and I don’t believe we’ve ever had a nation that had to endure that,” Trump said. “It’s just the phase, the stage of evolution that they are in. It’s getting worse. This Green New Deal is a destructive force. And that’s total bullshit, I have to tell you.
