( – Former Deputy Assistant to President Donald Trump Sebastian Gorka, speaking at the CPAC conference in National Harbor, Md., on Thursday, said the Democrats’ Green New Deal is “a watermelon,” because it’s “green on the outside” and “deep, deep red communist on the inside.”

“According to the amazing Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, they did a poll last year in which they found that 52 percent of American millennials would like to live in a socialist or communist America,” Gorka said, which is why 40 Democrat candidates in the last midterm election called themselves socialists.”

“That is why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has introduced the Green New Deal, which is – remember this one, use it. It’s a watermelon - green on the outside, deep, deep red communist on the inside,” he said. “They want to take your pickup truck. They want to rebuild your home. They want to take away your hamburgers. This is what Stalin dreamt about but never achieved.

“You are on the frontlines of the war against communism coming back to America under the guise of Democratic socialism, which is just the PC term for communism. I want everyone to take to heart Donald J. Trump is never going to let it happen, and as he said to Congress, America will never be a socialist country,” Gorka added.


On the subject of Russia, Gorka said Trump is dealing effectively with Russia compared to former President Barack Obama.

“Let’s just look at how the president is dealing with Russia. How do you deal with bullies? There’s only the right way to deal with bullies. You don’t cave to them. You don’t send Hillary to give them a nice, plastic reset button. That’s not how you deal with bullies. Let’s just go back in time. If you haven’t heard this, don’t take my word for it. Check it out,” he said.

“After Russia broke a 70-year taboo, invaded its neighbor, annexed, stole its territory, what did the 44th president of the United States Barack Obama do? This isn’t a joke. He shipped blankets to the Ukrainians - blankets - so they’ll have something to wrap the dead bodies in, I guess,” Gorka said.

In contrast, Trump sent Ukraine something it can do to defend itself, he said.

“What did we do when we got to the White House? We instigated one of the toughest sanction regimes in modern history. When we heard of the assassination attempt in the U.K., we kicked out 60 Russian diplomats, okay? Spies. And then what did we send Kiev? Did we send them more blankets? Did we send them socks? Donald J. Trump sent the government of the Ukraine anti-tank missiles,” Gorka said.

He said America knows how to deal with bullies and that it won’t fight other countries battles – it will help them fight their battles.

“America is back, and we know how to deal with bullies. We’re not going to fight your wars for you, but we’ll help you fight your own wars. The most important thing the president has done is to give a speech in Warsaw, where he said, America is back. We are proud of our Judeo-Christian heritage, and we will stand by any nation, shoulder to shoulder that shares our values – whether it’s Poland, whether it’s any other country like the Ukraine. That is America,” Gorka said.
