Donald Trump Warns of “Bloodbath” If He Loses Election to Biden Again

HeadlineMar 18, 2024

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump campaigned in Ohio over the weekend and warned there would be a “bloodbath” in the United States if he lost the election to Joe Biden.

Donald Trump: “Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s gonna be a bloodbath for the whole — that’s gonna be the least of it. It’s gonna be a bloodbath for the country. That’ll be the least of it.”

During the same speech, Trump escalated his dehumanizing attacks on migrants.

Donald Trump: “If you call them people — I don’t know if you call them people. In some cases they’re not people, in my opinion. But I’m not allowed to say that, because the radical left says that’s a terrible thing to say. They say, 'You have to vote against him, because did you hear what he said about humanity?' I’ve seen the humanity, and these humanity — these are bad — these are animals, OK?”

Trump also called for the jailing of lawmakers who took part in the House select committee that investigated the January 6 insurrection.

In related news, Trump’s former Vice President Mike Pence has said he “cannot in good conscience” endorse Trump’s reelection bid.
