"He is using his victory in the election as a mandate to do that," he said. "He talks about socialism. In the past, it was kind of a figure of speech but now he is actually talking about building an economy in which the state actually owns the means of production."

在字典里没有查到a figure of的用法而用google查到了很多a figure of speech怎么翻译好呢?我把他翻成装装样子的演讲.owns the means of production怎么翻?谢谢!

a figure of speech 比喻说法

有时候可以说"It's just a figure of speech"(只是打个比方,不要当真)
