I'm sure it's just me, but I hear disturbing echoes in this statement.
In 1923, Albert Leo Schlageter engaged in acts of terrorism in the Ruhr area, in protest against the French occupation that followed WWI. In time, Schlageter was arrested, tried and executed. In time, he was elevated to the status of Nazi Martyr. Hitler said: "The German people are not truly worthy of a Schlageter."
When I hear a leader, or his minion, say (if effect), "the people I lead are not worthy enough", then I know I'm dealing with fascism.

He said:Whats frustrating is that we dont have a political system or an opposition party worthy of the opportunity.
You said: “I’m sure it’s just me, but I hear disturbing echoes in this statement.”
I just read the whole speech and see the the devil incarnate in his words - the perfect antichrist. How long will he be allowed to “reign”?
