Former President Donald Trump held a rally in Nevada Saturday night to raise support for U.S. Senate candidate Adam Laxalt and gubernatorial candidate Joe Lombardo, as well as other Republican candidates.

According to the former president, Democrats are ruining the country — with record-high inflation and a continued crisis at the southern border, among other issues — and that the time for voters to stand up to them was “right now in this election.”

“The Democrats are locking up their political opponents, spying on their political rivals, silencing dissent and using the full force of government law enforcement and the media, the fake media, to try and crush our movement,” Trump said Saturday in Minden. “Every freedom-loving American needs to understand the time to stand up to this growing tyranny is right now in this election.”

“We have to do it,” he added. “We don’t have the luxury of waiting. The only way evil will triumph is for good men and women to do nothing. That’s how they triumph. We do nothing.”

He also urged Republicans to “keep on going” and “keep on fighting” to win elections for “six straight years.” Only then, Trump predicted, would Republicans be able to “restore our country to greatness.”
