Former President Donald Trump ignited a firestorm of controversy on Sunday after telling attendees at his Nevada rally, “I don’t care about you. I just want your vote.” The remark, made during a rally in Las Vegas, quickly drew widespread criticism and intense reactions on social media.

Trump’s rally, held in over 100-degree weather, saw medics called for one attendee more than three hours before the former president took the stage. Attempting to deflect attention from the sweltering heat, Trump remarked to his supporters, “By the way, isn’t that breeze nice? Do you feel the breeze? I don’t want anybody going on me. We need every voter.”

He then added the controversial statement, “I don’t care about you. I just want your vote. I don’t care.” The comment was met with immediate backlash, with social media lighting up in response to Trump’s apparent admission of indifference towards his supporters, told Raw Story.

Conservative Army Iraq War Veteran Peter Henlein offered his perspective on the incident. “Hear me out… the kind of guy who would tell his own supporters that came out to see him speak ‘I don’t care about you, I just want your vote,’ which Trump just did today… is exactly the kind of guy who would call soldiers killed in action ‘suckers’ and ‘losers’ while speaking to a man whose son was killed serving our country.”

Democrat Harry Sisson also weighed in, tweeting, “WOW! Trump just went MASK OFF and said ‘We need every voter. I don’t care about you. I just want your vote. I don’t care.’ You hear that, America? Trump doesn’t care about you at all. He just wants you to vote for him. Disgraceful.”

Trump’s rally was further marred by a bizarre rant about batteries and shark attacks, adding to the chaotic atmosphere of the event. Despite these strange diversions, it was his candid statement about voters that dominated the headlines and conversations online.

The rally and Trump’s remarks have sparked a broader discussion about his approach to his supporters and the implications of his unfiltered rhetoric. Critics argue that his comments reflect a deeper disregard for the people who back him, while his supporters might view it as part of his unorthodox and direct style.

As Trump continues to campaign and address crowds, the impact of such statements remains to be seen. For now, his Nevada rally has underscored the divisive and often controversial nature of his public appearances, raising questions about his strategy and its effectiveness in garnering support for any future political endeavors. The incident serves as a reminder of the volatile nature of Trump’s public persona and the intense reactions it provokes, both from his detractors and his followers.
