Trump threatened that his supporters could violent if the left keeps on standing up and say no to his wall and agenda.
In an interview with Breitbart, Trump said, “It’s so terrible what’s happening. You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay? I can tell you, I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad. But the left plays it cuter and tougher.”
When Trump is losing, he threatens violence
Trump has a history of threatening violence when he is losing. He did it during the midterm election. The president has also threatened violence against people protesting him, violence against Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), and his attorney Rudy Giuliani has threated violence against the American people if Trump is impeached.
All of these situations have one thing in common. Donald Trump was losing. When Trump starts losing he begins to try to scare people into doing things his way with threats of violence. Trump can’t handle being investigated, told no, and generally owned by Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats, so he is pretending like he has a gang of thugs at his disposal who will beat the left into compliance.
Trump’s tough talk is a sign that he is weak and teetering.
Donald Trump is failing, which is why he is talking tough and trying to pretend like he can bully his way to a success that will never come.
