A sweat-drenched President Donald Trump delivered a bizarre lie-filled rant about the history of the Democratic Party’s name during his Saturday night rally in West Virginia.

“The new platform of the Democrat Party—you notice I say Democrat Party? I hate the way it sounds, that’s why I say it,” Trump said. “Because it’s really their name. It’s not the Democratic Party.”

However, it is the Democratic Party—and has been for about 200 years. The Democratic National Committee, as the party is formally organized, has existed in its current form since 1848. It is the oldest political party in the United States—older than the “Grand Old Party” of Republicanism.

America’s two modern political parties, the Democratic and Republican, share a common lineage in the Democratic-Republican Party which was founded at the birth of the nation and splintered in 1825.

“It flows nicer—the Democratic Party, but the real name is the Democrat Party,” Trump falsely claimed. “I hate the way it sounds and that’s why I use it. But that’s the real name. The Democrat Party. When you see Democratic Party, it’s wrong. There’s no name, Democratic Party.”

The Republican president then said that the opposing party represented “radical socialism” and would turn this country into Venezuela.

Watch the bizarre lie-filled rant below.
