President Trump launched an unusual story about two of his predecessors – former President Abraham Lincoln and former President and General General Ulysses S. Grant.
Trump said that Lincoln is a phobia & # 39; had developed against General General Robert E. Lee, who by Trump had a "big general". was named, and that Lincoln sought Lincoln Grant, who was born in Ohio, to defeat Lee.
Trump also referred to Grant & # 39; s alleged drinking problem. He added that Grant "is finally recognized as a great general".
This is what Trump told the crowd in Ohio:
"It also gave you a general who was incredible, he drank a little too much, you know what I'm talking about right? So Robert E. Lee was a great general. And Abraham Lincoln developed a phobia. He could not beat Robert E. Lee.
He was crazy. I do not know if you know this story. But Robert E. Lee won the fight after the fight after the fight. And Abraham Lincoln came home, he said, "I can not beat Robert E. Lee." And he had all his generals, they looked good, they were the best in their class at West Point. They were the best people. There is only one problem: they did not know how to win. They did not know how to fight. They did not know how.
And one day it looked bad. And Lincoln only said: & # 39; You, & # 39; he hardly knew his name. And they said, "Do not take him, he has a drinking problem." And Lincoln said: "I do not care what problem he has. You are not winning. & # 39;
And his name was Grant. General Grant. And he went in and he beat hell out of everyone. And you know the story. They said to Lincoln: "You can no longer use him, he is an alcoholic." And Lincoln said, "I do not care if he's an alcoholic, frankly, give me six or seven like him." He started to win. Grant really did it – he had a serious problem, a serious drinking problem, but he was a good general. And he is finally recognized as a great general.
But Lincoln had almost developed a phobia because he had a hard time with a really great hunter, a great General Robert E. Lee. But Grant came up with it. Grant is a great general and Grant came from here. & # 39;
