Seriously, Mr. President?

0D35AD3F-49C5-401A-8273-2D2D63834733In an interview with Breitbart News, the President of the United States seems to have threatened violence if Democrats don’t support him.

Claiming that his opponents are treating him unfairly, he praised the toughness and strength of his supporters and predicted that these “tough” supporters will, at some point, end their restraint.

Here is what he said:

“So here’s the thing — 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.”

I don’t know how to interpret Trump’s words to be anything but a not-so-subtle threat of violence. Things could get “tough” for Democrats — and maybe for the left in general — he suggested, if they don’t play ball with him.

Is there any other possible way to interpret what he said? Or is this just another case of Trump bluster?

    This does seem like a very unwarranted threat. Why would people choose to follow him is beyond me!

    He’s like a zombie cult leader, with assumptions that all he has to do is give the word and they will jump into zombie killer action. What this sounds like to me is his threatening to give the word. He has some zombies who follow him but his assumption that he has all of those he named under his control is outright delusional.
