‘Nightmarish Political Scene’: Paul Krugman Details the Infuriating Way Trump Will Wrestle Power from Dems If They Win the Midterms

Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman on Sunday issued a dire warning about the upcoming midterm elections—and how Donald Trump will react if his party loses.


Krugman initially warned that if the Democrats don’t manage to at least win control of the House of Representatives, “God help up,” before noting that even if they do, “we’ll be facing a nightmarish political scene.”


Krugman warned the Trump administration will likely defy requests for information even if Democrats have subdued power. “They’ll also probably abuse executive power in many other ways,” Krugram wrote.

The enconomist added the president will likely ramp up his claims of voter fraud and claim the midterm elections were stolen “to justify their disregard of the law and Constitution.”

“If you don't think this is going to happen, you haven't been paying attention,” Krugman added.
