Maxine Waters Raises Alarm About Trump Supporters Plotting Violent Attack If Election is Lost

Los Angeles, California – Democratic U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters has expressed concerns about potential violence from supporters of former President Donald Trump if he loses the 2024 presidential election. In a recent appearance on MSNBC’s The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart, Waters raised alarms about Trump’s refusal to accept election results.

Waters emphasized that Trump’s history of rejecting election outcomes raises serious concerns about his behavior if he were to lose in 2024. She highlighted Trump’s statements hinting at possible election fraud and his reluctance to acknowledge the legitimacy of the electoral process.

The congresswoman warned of the potential for violence and unrest if Trump were to refuse to concede defeat. She called on government agencies, including the Justice Department and the president, to outline plans to protect the country from any potential threats or attacks.

Capehart referenced a recent Time interview in which Trump stated his willingness to abide by constitutional term limits if re-elected. However, Waters dismissed Trump’s assurances, citing his track record of disregarding democratic norms and constitutional boundaries.

Waters also expressed concerns about right-wing organizations allegedly training in remote areas and targeting specific communities. She called for transparency regarding these groups and their potential plans for violence if Trump were to lose the election.

Joining Waters on the MSNBC show, Rep. Robert Garcia echoed her sentiments, emphasizing the dangers of a potential Trump re-election. Garcia warned that Trump’s prolonged stay in office could have detrimental effects on democracy and the country’s electoral processes.

The growing apprehension around Trump’s rhetoric and his supporters’ intentions underscores the heightened tensions and divisions within the political landscape as the 2024 election approaches. Concerns about the potential for unrest and violence post-election continue to fuel debates about the future of American democracy and the rule of law.
