President Donald Trump‘s supporters will “hunt down” Democrats and bring “violence to America” once the president leaves office, according to right-wing Christian pastor and conspiracy theorist Rick Wiles.
On his apocalyptic TruNews programme, captured by Right Wing Watch, Mr Wiles said the president’s impeachment or “however he leaves” office will inspire “veterans, cowboys, mountain men” and “guys that know how to fight” to bring “violence to America” by hunting down Mr Trump’s political enemies.
Co-host Edward Szall said “once the blood starts flowing, it’s near impossible to stop”.
Meanwhile, moments before a World Series game was set to begin, a longtime Major League Baseball umpire threatened to buy an AR-15 and join a civil war if Mr Trump is impeached. Rob Drake wrote his threat on Twitter, then deleted it.
“I will be buying an AR-15 tomorrow, because if you impeach MY PRESIDENT this way, YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER CIVAL (sic) WAR!!! #MAGA2020,” he wrote. “You can’t do an impeachment inquiry from the basement of Capital(sic) Hill without even a vote! What is going on in this country?”
On TruNews, Mr Wiles added that “if they get away this, there’s no country left. It’s done. It’s finished.”
