Giuliani: ‘The People Are Rising Up Against The Government’

Rudy Giuliani, as he watched Donald Trump’s electoral-vote count rise Tuesday night, called the election an example of “the people beating the establishment.”

According to Newsmax, the former New York City mayor told MSBC that he was “very happy for the country.” He added: “This is a real victory for the people. This is like Andrew Jackson’s victory. This is the people beating the establishment, and that’s how he positioned it from the beginning.”

Giuliani, a Trump adviser who may become the nation’s next attorney general, was referring to the seventh president of the United States. Jackson, like Trump, had no experience in government or politics.

“The people are rising up against a government they find to be dysfunctional, and yes, it’s a defeat for the Democrats, but this is a defeat for some Republicans, too,” Giuliani said.

When MSNBC’s Chris Matthews noted that women, Muslims and others “felt abused” by Trump’s rhetoric during the campaign, the ex-mayor responded: “I do think if you listen to his speeches over the last few months, I don’t think a speech went by where he doesn’t talk about his dedication to truly improving conditions for African-Americans, for Hispanics and for poor people – and for returning the ladder of success that you and I had when we were young, which means a good education and a good job, rather than dependency.”
