President Trump hadn’t had much success dividing Democrats until he found a word that would provoke very different responses from different members of the party during his State of the Union address: socialism.

Trump’s warning of creeping socialism in the United States, deftly mentioned after a section of the speech on the unfolding political crisis in Venezuela, created an immediate public split among Democrats that was caught on live television.

The article goes on to state the following:

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) and Sens. Debbie Stabenow (Mich.), Joe Manchin (W.Va.), Jon Tester (Mont.) and Sherrod Brown (Ohio) were among the lawmakers who stood with Republicans to applaud Trump when he pledged that the United States would never slide into socialism.

But other Democrats weren’t so happy about Trump’s choice of words — which was clearly meant to put them on the spot.

    If it were not for the indoctrination going on in our public schools to promote socialism to young people, I would be encouraged by the Presidents pledge that we will never be socialists. Alas, I fear that pledge will fail.

    Socialism is just a soft way of saying communism…and the US is buying into it, mainly through the educational system, and we are letting it happen…daycare to college, constant input of socialist tidbits…do you know what’s going on at your kid’s place of learning? Best go check….
