At Kentucky rally, Donald Trump claims \'far left\' is trying to impose \'authoritarian ideology\' on nation

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump on Monday cited a confrontation between a group of Kentucky Catholic high school students and Native American activists earlier this year as evidence that the “far left” is trying to impose an “authoritarian ideology” on the nation.

“They want to indoctrinate your children, destroy anyone who holds traditional American values,” Trump warned at a political rally in Lexington, Ky.

Rallying on the eve of an election that will decide governors races in two states,Trump urged Kentuckians to re-elect their GOP governor, Matt Bevin, and send a signal "to the rest of the world that the Republican Party – you know what we stand for."

In the audience at Monday's rally in Rupp Arena, Trump said, were some students from Covington Catholic High School. The school was the subject of a video that went viral in January after an exchange between some of its students and Native American activists in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.

The video showed Covington Catholic junior Nick Sandmann, wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, standing in front of a Native American elder, Nathan Phillips, as a large group of students jumped and clapped to the beat of Philipps’ drum. Sandmann was slammed on social media because people thought he was being disrespectful to Phillips.
