Yesterday Trump was asked, not for the first time, whether he would commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the election. Again, he has refused.
“Well, we’re going to have to see what happens,” Trump said when first asked if he would “commit here today for a peaceful transferral of power after the November election.” He continued, “You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster.” But it’s when the reporter, Brian Karem of Playboy magazine, pressed again, that Trump really laid it out. “Get rid of the ballots and you’ll have a very peaceful—there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation.”
There you have it, the Republican plan for the 2020 election with all the lies and obfuscation burned away: they plan to win by getting rid of the ballots.
The road to fascism is lined with people telling you to stop overreacting.
