Donald Trump Criticizes Conservatives Saying 'Woke' All the Time
Former President Donald Trump is apparently distancing himself from the conservative trend of extensively using the word "woke."
Trump suggested that the term was overused by Republicans during a 2024 presidential campaign stop in Iowa on Thursday, complaining that "half the people" who use the term do not even know what it means.
"Woke" has become a culture war buzzword among the political right in recent years. While definitions vary, it is often used as a catchall term to describe political positions or issues of which conservatives do not approve.
