GOP presidential candidate, Donald Trump vows to wrap up his campaign on “his terms,” VOA News reports. Trump has lost many of his endorsements, but he won’t let it put a halt to his campaign. Donald vows to finish strong and believes he can still win the election.
“I am so angry at the Republicans. They are not putting their weight behind the people,” Trump told a cheering crowd on Wednesday evening in Florida.
Donald Trump accused Washington politicians of protecting his opponent Hillary Clinton from prosecution. He claims that Clinton should be in jail after admitting that she used her personal email address to handle national security after business hours via her Blackberry device. The investigators called her actions “extremely careless,” but not criminal. Trump and his supporters disagree and want to see the former secretary of state behind bars.
“We have to investigate the investigation. Did they make a deal where everybody protects each other in Washington? She shouldn’t be allowed to run for president.”
During Donald’s Florida speech, he didn’t mention the video that exposed a side of Trump that he kept hidden for most of the campaign. In the 2005 video, Trump told former Access Hollywood reporter Billy Bush that he could grope women without their consent because “he is a celebrity.”
Fox News reports that Donald Trump is tired of “nonsupporting Republican leaders.” House Speaker, Paul Ryan, John McCain, and Chris Christie have abandoned him in the wake of half a dozen alleged sexual assault allegations. Paul Ryan went a step further by claiming that Trump will lose the November 8 presidential election to Hillary Clinton.
Donald’s poll numbers had steadily declined since the video’s release last week.
Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, said, “We want the support of anybody who’s going to publicly endorse us. But enough of the waffling around regarding, you know, do you support us or do you not support us? The fact is that some of these leaders have been wishy-washy.”
Since the controversy surrounding the 2005 tape broke last week, three dozen Republican lawmakers urged him to step down, and nearly all are now backing Clinton.
Most polls show Hillary is at or near the 270 electoral votes needed to win the race. However, there are still some states that have Trump and Clinton deadlocked. It gives Donald a fighting chance to win the race and gain some momentum heading into Election Day.
Even if Donald Trump doesn’t win, Quartz reports that his supporters aren’t going to go away quietly. Mike Pence told a crowd on Wednesday that they were “very concerned” about voter fraud this year and wouldn’t be surprised “if someone tried to steal the election.”
Pence and Trump have called for a revolution with their supporters and have done little to stop violence if that’s how they “see fit to respond.”
A dedicated Donald Trump fan explained, “I’ll tell you just for me, and I don’t want this to happen, but for me personally, if Hillary Clinton gets in, I’m ready for a revolution because we can’t have her in.”
Donald’s fans have threatened many times that they will “be forced to take action” if Hillary wins the election. They refuse to allow her to take office and plan to take drastic measures to make sure it doesn’t happen.
Trump’s supporters have told the media for months that if Clinton wins the 2016 election, they will take up arms and form militias. Roger Stone, a dedicated Trump supporter, claims there would be a “bloodbath” if Donald loses the election.
When Trump saw a dip in the polls several months ago, he told his followers that “Clinton rigged the election,” which made most of them angry and ready to “fight for the movement.”
Donald’s comments have created paranoia among his supporters. They are worried that Hillary may steal the election from him. They feel anxiety about him losing the race. They are faced with the realization that Hillary may become their leader, and it terrifies them. It has made his movement dangerous to society.
Scholar Jonathan Bach talked about the differences between a leader and a movement. He stated, “The more paranoid a ruler becomes, the more essential it is that others share the ruler’s system of delusions and conspiracies … The successful paranoid leader will make the people share his paranoia, and they will feed on it together.”
It’s only 26 days until Election Day is here, and the media circus is over. Should Donald Trump lose, it’s highly likely his supporters will say that the election was rigged for Hillary to win from the start.
Will Donald Trump’s supporters accept defeat, or will they take their movement to the next level and become a dangerous threat to Hillary Clinton?
