Could Trump Call for Riots If He Loses

Of all the dangerous things Donald Trump has said, perhaps the most concerning is his statement that the election might be rigged. This irresponsible and unsupported suggestion again shows Trump’s poor behavior in the increasingly likely event of his loss.

“The election’s going to be rigged,” Trump warned at a rally in Ohio. “I’m telling you, November 8, we’d better be careful, because that election is going to be rigged,” he told Fox News’s Sean Hannity.

These type comments could set stage for an outcome that could be very explosive. It is not hard to imagine Trump provoking his partisans against accepting the election results, causing ever more of the toxic political climate in Washington.

If Clinton is elected, Republicans will have been shut out of the White House for three elections in a row, for the first time since 1948. And if Democrats retake control of the Senate, Republicans eyeing the 2018 map — when 25 Democrats (and independents caucusing with Democrats) and only eight Republicans face reelection — would have every reason to stop Clinton’s initiatives. They would try to make her not just a one-term president but a two-year one.

Add to this ugliness a losing nominee who provokes supporters with statements that the election was somehow stolen from him and you have a recipe for turmoil of a most un-American variety.
