Donald Trump seemed to post a late-night threat on Twitter vowing to force his perceived enemies to be obedient to him, drawing ridicule and outrage from Americans.
Trump has made it clear that he views more than half of the American people as the enemy. After all, he lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes in 2016.
Yet, despite that and the fact that he is losing in just about every single poll to Joe Biden, including Fox News polls, Trump proclaimed that “real polls” show him winning even bigger than four years ago. Of course, he didn’t see fit to specify what polls he is talking about.
And he lashed out at liberals and protesters by declaring that “they will behave” when he wins.
The Real Polls are starting to look GREAT! We will be having an even bigger victory than that of 2016. The Radical Left Anarchists, Agitators, Looters, and just plain Lunatics, will not be happy, but they will behave!

That sounded awfully like a threat as if Trump intends to make Americans bow down to him by force.
Americans were not amused, so they responded with mockery and anger.
This is fascism. https://t.co/9c9WzjjElJ

Should we tell him?
Dude, your guys are lying to you. You’re doing very VERY badly and it’s getting worse every day.
You disrespect our military, and destroy our system of government and our reputation in the world.
And you LIE. You lie constantly about literally everything. pic.twitter.com/L4UtzWDIMp

You’re losing. You have no path to victory that doesn’t involve voter suppression, mail fraud, or militias.

Joe Biden is actually extending his lead in the polls as more and more Republicans and independents are coming together to put an end to your terrible administration. #RepublicansForBiden

Stop trying to divide the country and start trying to unite us. From day one you called Democrats the enemy! How do you expect someone that you call “the enemy” to view you?

Real Presidents don’t speak like this, let alone THINK like this.

Trump has already threatened to use the military against the people. If he wins a second term, by hook or by crook, you can bet he would feel free to actually do it. That’s why he needs to lose.
