“Great president,” he said of Lincoln on Tuesday night. “Most people don’t even know he was a Republican. Does anyone know? Lot of people don’t know that.”

Trump won the presidency as the candidate from the Republican Party, which has long called itself “the party of Lincoln.”

Please, someone start a PAC for the sole purpose of telling people Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.

Trump was speaking at a fundraiser for the National Republican Congressional Committee at the time, where he drained the swamp by helping members of Congress raise $30 million.

Just as in the early days of our country, citizens took to their electronic tweeting devices to make their voices heard.

Aside from informing the world Abraham Lincoln was indeed a Republican, Trump also talked about his giant border wall, increasing the defense budget, and repealing Obamacare.

At one point, he uttered a phrase that will surely take its place in the history books next to “Four score and seven years ago.”

“We have a lot of haters out there,” Trump said.
