At a dinner with evangelical leaders held at the White House on Monday, Donald
Trump warned of violence if Republicans lose power in the midterms, according
to audio recording obtained by NBC News. Youre one election away from losing
everything that youve got, he said.
In the recording, he emphasized, somewhat cryptically, that the level of
hatred, the level of anger is unbelievable when talking up the stakes of this
If the GOP loses, he said, they will overturn everything that weve done and
theyll do it quickly and violently, and violently. Theres violence. When you
look at Antifa and you look at some of these groupsthese are violent people.
The scare tactic, grotesque and baseless as it is, was largely unnecessary.
Evangelical voters refuse to quit Trump, who despite being almost comically
immoral by conservative Christian standards has been a reliable ally on court
appointments and abortion politics. God doesnt care about anything else, right?
