Trump Warns of a “bloodbath”


Washington, Mar 16 (EFE).-

United States’ former president and presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump warned on Saturday of a “bloodbath” in the country if he loses November’s elections against current president, Democrat Joe Biden.

“Now if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the whole — that’s gonna be the least of it,” Trump said during a rally in Ohio, his first since he secured the Republican nomination by winning the state primaries on Tuesday.

The New York tycoon did not clarify what he meant by his remarks, which he uttered while promising protectionist measures for vehicles manufactured in the US.

Trump, who has never acknowledged his defeat against Biden in the 2020 presidential election, is accused of having plotted to overturn the election results four years ago and inciting a mob of supporters to attack the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

During his speech in Ohio, the Republican called those detained for attacking the Capitol “hostages” and promised to pardon them if re-elected for a second term.

He also said some undocumented immigrants accused of crimes were “not people.”

Biden’s campaign issued a statement calling Trump a “loser” and accused him of wanting to repeat the assault on the Capitol.

“American people are going to give him another electoral defeat this November because they continue to reject his extremism, his affection for violence, and his thirst for revenge,” Biden’s campaign spokesperson, James Singer said.

On Tuesday, Trump managed to win enough delegates in the primaries to seal his presidential nomination at the convention that the Republican Party will hold in July. EFE
