Donald Trump on Monday uncorked a new conspiracy theory during an interview on Fox News, claiming that China laughing at the United States because Dr. Seuss is being “destroyed with woke.”
Trump ranted that Democrats were using “woke” politics to ruin the United States and offered the purported cancellation of Dr. Seuss books as an example.
“They’re destroying it with woke!” the former president told host Harris Faulkner. “When China looks at woke, and they see the biggest problem we have is Dr. Seuss, in the meantime they’re building factories and trying to kill us in so many ways, they laugh at us, frankly, they think our country is stupid!”
Trump went on to blame “woke” for the removal of racist monuments across the US.
“I want to do what’s right and they are destroying our country!” he concluded.
Trump offered no evidence to support his claim. No Democrats have made Dr. Seuss books a pressing concern and conservative media outlets and politicians have been the ones who have used it as a culture war issue.
