Glenn to Trump: 'Stop demonizing the companies and start fixing the problems'

Donald Trump swore off Oreos over Nabisco's closure of a plant in Chicago, which will be moving to Mexico due to burdensome corporate taxes. Glenn took Trump to task over this comment, questioning how Trump is being touted as a Republican conservative.

He's acting more like a Republican progressive, Glenn argued, adding progressivism is a cancer that kills the Constitution.

"[Trump] says, 'I'm going to make us competitive.' How, when you're booing Nabisco for moving when we have the highest corporate tax rate? How, when you're implying that you should boycott Oreos because they're now in Mexico?" Glenn said.

Here's what Glenn said actually happens.

"If you stay in the United States, you become the Twinkies and you go out of business. And then, instead of having a company, like Ford still at least owns the company, instead, you go out of business and a Mexican company buys Twinkies. And then they make them there. They sell them here. And all of the money goes back to Mexico. Which do you prefer Mr. Constitutional conservative Donald Trump? Help me out," Glenn said.

DONALD: You know, Mexico is the new China. The other day, Nabisco -- Oreos. Right? Oreos. I love Oreos. I'll never eat them again. Okay? I'll never eat them again.

No. Nabisco closes a plant they just announced a couple of days ago in Chicago, and they're moving the plant to Mexico. Now, why? Why? Why?

GLENN: Stop. Stop. Stop. Populist. Populist. Populist. What is he doing? Don't move to Mexico, the populist thing to say, and the crowd reacts.

Now, when I heard this clip over the weekend, I thought, wait a minute. Now, why is Nabisco moving? He immediately says, I'll never eat another Oreo again. I'll never eat another Oreo again. He goes on.

DONALD: Have you heard my story? My favorite story is Ford. You've heard the story with Ford? Do we want to hear it again or not? Yes! All right. I mean, that's a big one. So Ford, great company, they're building a $2.5 billion car factory in Mexico.

GLENN: Okay. He hates this. Let me just point out two things. First of all, Ford is the only one that didn't take a bailout from the United States government. So if you're not taking a bailout from the United States government, you have to make your company work.

Why is Ford moving to Mexico? Because they love Mexicans? Because they love Mexico so much? Or because they cannot afford to do business here in the United States? And that is the reason Nabisco moved. A constitutional conservative, a small government conservative, Ronald Reagan does not stand up there and say, I'm never going to eat another Oreo again. Ronald Reagan stands up and says, they moved their plant. They lost all those jobs. Why? Because they were chased out by the high corporate taxes. The highest -- and this is why Nabisco is moving. Because we have the highest corporate tax in the world. He doesn't say the rich should pay more. He says, we have the highest corporate tax in the world. And we're going to lose more companies. Nabisco, I'm president, you don't have to worry about moving and we don't have to worry about losing those jobs because I will make us competitive again. What does Donald Trump do? He becomes a populist and makes people boo Nabisco. Boo Oreos. At that rate, you'll lose every single company in America that counts because we have the highest corporate tax rates. Stop demonizing the companies and start fixing the problems to make us competitive again.

He says, I'm going to make us competitive. How, when you're booing Nabisco for moving when we have the highest corporate tax rate? How, when you're implying that you should boycott Oreos because they're now in Mexico? Here's what happens: If you stay in the United States, you become the Twinkie and you go out of business. And then, instead of having a company, like Ford still at least owns the company, instead, you go out of business and a Mexican company buys Twinkies. And then they make them there. They sell them here. And all of the money goes back to Mexico. Which do you prefer Mr. Constitutional conservative Donald Trump? Help me out. And I'd like to hear from his supporters. Help me out.

He loves government health care. These are all -- this isn't in the past. This is on the campaign trail. He loves Canadian health care. He says he's for a flat tax, but he wants the rich to pay more. He says that the reason why we had the stock market crash yesterday is because of poor planning. And boycott Oreos because they moved because of the highest corporate tax rate in the world. Help me out. Tell me exactly. How is this guy a Republican conservative? I'll tell you who he is. He is a Republican progressive.

You want more of the same stuff, except with attitude, in your face, a bully, then vote for Donald Trump. You want conservative principles, constitutional principles, lower taxes, lower corporate tax rates, freedom in insurance, you're not going to get it from a guy who says the Canadian thing is good. I'm sorry. But I don't understand it. Oh, and, by the way, Rupert Murdoch says that now that Trump is in, we should get another guy in. Another guy who is a great conservative -- one of the best mayors ever. Bloomberg. Because he's a Republican as well.

Progressive Republicans. Please. Don't let us have to spend the next four or eight years trying to teach the Republicans what you already know. Progressivism is a cancer that kills the Constitution. Now, do you need to have an up-close lesson that Republicans are the ones who started it? And I love these people who say, Glenn Beck is just fighting for the establishment. Are you out of your mind? Are you out of your mind?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
