US Election: “revolutionary war” if Trump loses the race?
As rivals Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are involved in a tight race to win the Presidential election, the fear of losing the war mostly disturbs the Trump supporters. There are various reports coming out predicting that the Republican nominee will be denied the White House, allegedly pushing the Trump supporters to go for ‘another revolutionary war’, US media reports.
Jared Halbrook, a Trump supporter, was quoted by New York Times as saying: “People are going to march on the capitols. They’re going to do whatever needs to be done to get her out of office, because she does not belong there.”
According to NY Times, interviews with more than 50 Trump supporters over the past week indicate that the crowd appeared to have prepared for an unexpected response.
The newspaper quoted Roger Pillath, a retired teacher, saying as: “It’s not what I’m going to do, but I’m scared that the country is going to go into a riot. “The country has never been so divided. I’m looking at revolution right now,” he added.
Trump recently challenged the legitimacy of the US election arguing the election process is being rigged. He accused that “the election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary.”
He had also declared that he will not accept the election result if Hillary wins, saying, “I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election—if I win.”
A recent national CNN/ORC poll stated that a majority of US voters don’t believe that the Republican candidate will accept the results of the Presidential election.
However, most of the recent national polls suggest that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has built a visible lead over Donald Trump as early in-person voting and voting by mail have been underway in many states.
