Rep. Tim Ryan to Ohio workers: Donald Trump will 'gut you'
By BRENT GRIFFITHS, POLITICO
Donald Trump has made it a point of his campaign to appeal to blue-collar workers in the Midwest. But Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) said the New York businessman does not care about such people, graphically describing how Trump would walk by their lifeless bodies.
“That’s what is at stake, and I don’t mean to be graphic, but this guy to our friends in the trades — to our steelworkers who he’s been treating unfairly, very unfairly — he will, he will gut you and he will walk over your cold dead body and he won’t even flinch,” Ryan said at an event for former president Bill Clinton in Youngstown, Ohio according to multiple reports.
Ryan continued, saying he did not want to be “dramatic,” but that such carnage would not disturb Trump.
“He’ll climb over your cold dead body and get on his helicopter, right?" Ryan said. "I don’t mean to be dramatic, but that’s what’s at stake."
