Trump is threatening the American people with violence as he is trying to scare voters into supporting the Republican Party in November.
NBC News reported:
The level of hatred, the level of anger is unbelievable,” he said. “Part of it is because of some of the things I’ve done for you and for me and for my family, but I’ve done them. … This Nov. 6 election is very much a referendum on not only me, it’s a referendum on your religion, it’s a referendum on free speech and the First Amendment.”
If the GOP loses, he said, “they will overturn everything that we’ve done and they’ll do it quickly and violently, and violently. There’s violence. When you look at Antifa and you look at some of these groups — these are violent people.”
Here is Chuck Todd on MTP Daily talking about Trump‘s threat:
Trump’s threat is vote Republican, or there will be violence
Trump went beyond the usual Republican scare tactics of telling voters that Democrats are coming for their God and guns. The President stressed that there would be violence if Democrats won in November. Trump can’t run on accomplishments because he doesn’t have any. Trump can’t run on the Republican Party’s vision for America because they have none.
All Trump can do is divide and scare voters.
Donald Trump is trying to scare Republican voters to the polls. The problem is that this is the same Donald Trump who is also telling them not to worry about the election because a “red wave” is coming in November.
Trump can’t govern, so he is trying to scare and threaten. These tactics are straight out of the old school Nixon/Fox News playbook. Democrats in Congress aren’t coming for God, or guns, or the First Amendment. Democrats are coming to investigate Donald Trump, and the person who should be really scared was the guy threatening violence.
