Candace Owens Fluffs Lines, Says She Is 'On the Side of Mob Rule'

Conservative activist Candace Owens appeared to fumble her lines as she aimed to build up President Donald Trump's law and order messaging, but instead said she was voting for him as she was "on the side of mob rule."

Speaking to Fox News' Tucker Carlson, Owens took aim at unrest across the United States, alluding to the possibility of it spreading.

Commenting on potential violence, referring to businesses being boarded up ahead of Election Day, she spoke of this being enacted by the left and suggested those who were unperturbed by this could eventually be targeted by it.

"They're gonna come for you too. And they're gonna move past businesses, they're gonna move into the suburbs, they're gonna move into homes. Tucker, you know this, you've had antifa turn up on your doorstep. There is no way to stop this. So you be careful and you think about that when you head to the polls," she said.

Expanding on the latter point, she went on to express her support for President Trump, at which point her message became muddled.

"You are either on the side of mob rule, or you are on the side of law and order. And I am on the side of mob rule. Tomorrow, I will be casting my ballot for Donald J. Trump," she said.

To this Carlson said: "Amen, nicely put."

Newsweek has contacted Owens for comment.

Owens' comments come with Trump having made law and order a key message of his re-election campaign, while also having looked to lay blame for unrest upon what he has described as the radical left, with a specific focus upon those who associate with the antifa label.

He has branded himself "your president of law and order" and taken a hardline stance amid unrest across the nation, facing criticism for his reactions to protests across the country which broke out earlier this year.

The president has also looked to use this stance against Biden, suggesting that people across the country would be unsafe under the Democrat's leadership. This has been deemed a bid to win back voters who might usually vote Republican but have been leaning towards Biden in 2020.

Trump has also used it as a means to try and reel in suburban voters, insisting that the "suburban housewife" will vote for him as "they want safety."

However, despite the president's efforts to control the law and order messaging, polling has indicated voters trust Biden more on the issue than they do Trump.
