It's the soup thatTrump in July: And you have people coming over with bags of soup and the anarchists... start throwing it at our cops... And if it hits you, that’s worse than a brick because that’s got force... And when they get caught, they say, “No, this is just soup for my family.” pic.twitter.com/xs9tcY9aA5— Acyn Torabi (@Acyn) September 1, 2020
Trump, July 31, 2020:
In cities across the nation, we've also seen police officers assaulted with bricks, rocks, bats, Molotov cocktails, frozen bottles of water. ... And then they have cans of soup. Soup. And they throw the cans of soup. That's better than a brick because you can't throw a brick; it's too heavy. But a can of soup, you can really put some power into that, right? And then, when they get caught, they say, "No, this is soup for my family." They're so innocent. "This is soup for my family." It's incredible. And you have people coming over with bags of soup — big bags of soup. And they lay it on the ground, and the anarchists take it and they start throwing it at our cops, at our police. And if it hits you, that's worse than a brick because that's got force. It's the perfect size. It's, like, made perfect. And when they get caught, they say, "No, this is just soup for my family." And then the media says, "This is just soup. These people are very, very innocent. They're innocent people. These are just protesters. Isn't it wonderful to allow protesting?" No, there's — and, by the way, the media knows it better than we do. They know what's going on. I don't know what's wrong with them. They're doing our country a tremendous disservice — I'll say that. ...
I've had endorsements from so many — so many police. And I don't even say "thank you" anymore. I say, "What's your choice?" Your choice is me or somebody that has no clue what they're doing. And I say that kiddingly, but I sort of mean it. Right? I sort of mean it.
