Trump Says Election May Be “Rigged;” His Confidant Warns of “Bloodbath” If Clinton Wins

HeadlineAug 03, 2016

Donald Trump has continued to suggest he believes the November election may be “rigged.” Pointing to recent court decisions against restrictive voter ID laws in North Carolina and Wisconsin, Trump said Tuesday that the decisions increased the possibility of voter fraud. Trump said, “The voter ID situation has turned out to be a very unfair development. We may have people vote 10 times.” Studies of voter fraud in the U.S. have concluded the type of fraud Trump warned about is extremely rare. This comes after Republican political operative and Trump supporter Roger Stone warned of a “bloodbath” if Trump doesn’t win in November. Speaking with Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos, Stone said, “We will have a constitutional crisis, widespread civil disobedience, and the government will no longer be the government. It will be a bloodbath.”
