Trump Told Evangelicals They Will Face 'Violent' Left-Wing Oppression If Republicans Lose the Midterms
At Monday night's first-ever White House dinner honoring Evangelicals President Donald Trump behind closed doors told attendees if Republicans lose the midterms there will be violence.
Democrats, Trump said according to NBC News, "will overturn everything that we've done and they'll do it quickly and violently, and violently. There's violence. When you look at Antifa and you look at some of these groups — these are violent people."
"You're one election away from losing everything that you've got," Trump reportedly told the gathering of about 100 Evangelical leaders, including hate group head Tony Perkins and Focus On The Family founder James Dobson.
President Trump "said their opponents were 'violent people' who would overturn these gains 'violently,'" NBC adds.
"The level of hatred, the level of anger is unbelievable," he said. "Part of it is because of some of the things I've done for you and for me and for my family, but I've done them. … This Nov. 6 election is very much a referendum on not only me, it's a referendum on your religion, it's a referendum on free speech and the First Amendment."
The New York Times offers a similar report.
“They will end everything immediately,” he said, apparently referring to Democrats. He added, again without being clear whom he was talking about: “They will overturn everything that we’ve done and they’ll do it quickly and violently. And violently. There’s violence. When you look at Antifa, and you look at some of these groups, these are violent people.”
