Trump Supporters Threaten Revolution If He Loses

As reported at The New York Times, supporters of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump are expecting broad and aggressive outcry if the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton wins the election.

Trump supporters apparently have fears that the economy will suffer, that their interests will not be held in priority by Ms Clinton, visualising apocalyptic outcome or revolution. One Trump supporter is quoted as saying: “It’s not what I’m going to do, but I’m scared that the country is going to go into a riot,” – Roger Pillath, while another has stated: “They’re going to do whatever needs to be done to get her out of office, because she does not belong there. If push comes to shove, (Mrs Clinton) has to go by any means necessary, it will be done.”

Trump supporters also apparently strongly believe that the elections have been rigged, although they have not taken place yet. Mr Trump has suggested that he might not accept the results of the election if he is found to have been defeated. President Barack Obama has said in reply to this; “When you try to sow the seeds of doubt in people’s minds about our elections, that undermines our democracy”.

Mr Trump’s protests come in wake of allegations brought against him of sexual misconduct, brought forth in the press, The New York Times & The Washington Post.
