"Biden, I am sure, will be prosecuted for all of his crimes, because he's committed many crimes," he added, without specifying them.

But what about that ahem Presidential immunity you seem so keen on?

Revenge on America is the plan.

"I think the enemy from within, in many cases, is much more dangerous for our country than the outside enemies of China, Russia, and various others," Trump said in the interview when asked if he would be willing to suspend parts of the U.S. Constitution to deal with opponents.

That is because he is beholden to Russia and China.

20 ( +28 / -8 )

The Republican former president, who will face Democrat incumbent Joe Biden in November's election, also warned of a crackdown on the "enemy from within" if he secures a White House comeback and failed to rule out political violence if he does not.

Like with the continuing chants of "Lock her up" it is not clear whether Trump has supplanted enough of the American gov infrastructure with MAGA as he has done with the courts.

But the evangelical Christian Nationalists are salivating.

"These aren’t civilians. These are people that aren't legally in our country.

Doesn't understand the difference between "civilian" and "citizen".

Moron.

"I think the enemy from within, in many cases, is much more dangerous for our country than the outside enemies of China, Russia, and various others,"

There is precedent for such talk from leaders of a country. Just not American ones. (Think little mustache.)

By enemies, Trump means anyone who would hold him accountable.

Asked if states should monitor women's pregnancies to see if they have had abortions in defiance of a ban, Trump replied: "I think they might do that."

This will play well with women.

"I think we're going have a big victory and I think there will be no violence" -- but when pushed, added that "if we don't win, you know, it depends."

What he means is another peaceful tour of the capital.

"Biden, I am sure, will be prosecuted for all of his crimes, because he's committed many crimes," he added, without specifying them.

Because they don't exist.

Trump is both stupid and dangerous. Keep him away from the White House.

Donald Trump set out a stark vision for an authoritarian second term in an interview with Time magazine published Tuesday, ranging from possible mass deportations of migrants by the U.S. military and detention camps to pregnancy monitoring to enforce abortion bans.

This is what the US needs.

We aren't getting strong leadership and our adversaries are taking advantage of that.

Donald Trump set out a stark vision for an authoritarian second term in an interview with Time magazine published Tuesday, ranging from possible mass deportations of migrants by the U.S. military and detention camps to pregnancy monitoring to enforce abortion bans.

This is what the US needs.

We aren't getting strong leadership and our adversaries are taking advantage of that.

Not strong leadership like the leader of a major party not recognizing the threat to our treaty allies in Europe?

15 ( +19 / -4 )

Trump wants to rule the exact same way his favorite world leader rules . . . Vladimir Putin.

18 ( +22 / -4 )

We aren't getting strong leadership and our adversaries are taking advantage of that.

Lol there's absolutely nothing "strong" about Trump or Republican leadership. "Strong" Republican leadership in the house is responsible for the one of the lowest levels of bills passed in US history.

That some of my fellow Americans are now pining for fascism, almost a century after we defeated Nazi Germany is sad. People need to get a grip.

20 ( +23 / -3 )

And there it is for all to see.

12 ( +15 / -3 )

"Biden, I am sure, will be prosecuted for all of his crimes, because he's committed many crimes," he added, without specifying them.

This is pure projection. Trump has committed numerous crimes; Biden has committed none. Zero. Zilch.

It was a fair and wide reaching interview. This here is more a thumbnail sketch of it.

The important parts where he plans to become a dictator.

Keep in mind the incumbent has done a record LOW number of interviews, press conferences and has been in the news recently for refusing to do the traditional sit down interview with the NYT that every incumbent has done for a long, long time.

You should listen to the recent interview with Howard Stern. It's very good.

> It is if you don't want America turned into a fascist state...

Go around democrats run cities in USA.., Look at the universities.... look around the world.. and have a free mind to think.. honestly ... stop the HATE , and use of racism to blind the people.. which is the secret weapon of world liberals the communists dictatorship gangs .. who are trying to make USA a communist authoritarian nation.. and a colony to China.. with the support of islamic terrorists...( whose whole dream is the destruction of USA)

See the danger and recognize the real danger.. waiting next to your door..

-21 ( +2 / -23 )

This interview sent a shiver down my spine. He is an angry man out for revenge. He clearly threatened violence if he lost the election as well as other authoritarian measures.

Yes, Trump is a foolish and emotionally stunted individual, but he is also cruel and vindictive and longs to be a dictator.

If he wins the election and takes power, it will be the last fairish election in the US. He will see to it, with his Supreme Court cronies, that democracy dies.

14 ( +18 / -4 )

A very dangerous man who has threatened hell if he loses the election again.

It is easy to laugh at the delusional squealing of MAGA.

But the sad reality is an alarming number of people, aided by the corporate money megaphone, believe the biggest threat to Western democracy are Islamo-atheist Marxist immigrant terrorists.

MAGA does prey on, and play with the credulous and disenchanted in the USA.

Mad as a hatter, as Lewis Carrol might say.

Unhinged, narcissistic, borderline psychopath, real sociopath, a few Kangaroos loose in the top paddock, a sandwich short of a picnic and a drumstick short of a snack box.

Mad....barking mad.

And the mystery of the hair remains.....what secrets does it hold ?

 ranging from possible mass deportations of migrants by the U.S. military and detention camps to pregnancy monitoring to enforce abortion bans.

FAR FAR RIGHT, It should surprise no one that Germany's far far rightists are being investigated for spying for Russia and China, Russia and China aretwo of the authoritarian regimes the US Republican Party want to emulate. The Republican Party members that the Previous Guy says are his enemies used to say "Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice", now the followers of X-45 want the big brother state to control the freedom of those not in the ruling caste, while the ruling caste continues to plunder the nation with no opposition from laws and regulations. The Republicans appointed Supreme Court justices are just as corrupt as the R's. US Americans have a choice: maintain the republic and its Constitution, or turn the country completely over to the most extremely corrupt and allow Russia and China to have even further inroads to controlling the 50 states and its territories.

Doesn't understand the difference between "civilian" and "citizen".

Think the media took it out of context as usual, they’re the morons.

There is precedent for such talk from leaders of a country. Just not American ones. (Think little mustache.)

Not really, the guy in the mustache exterminated 6 million Jews, Trump is not doing that, on the other hand the current guy in the WH won’t even do it.

By enemies, Trump means anyone who would hold him accountable.

Yes, he should go after the radical establishment swamp that went after him, he’d be nuts if he didn’t.

This will play well with women.

He’ll focus on crime and the border, that will resonate with the country and women, because women likes safety as well.

What he means is another peaceful tour of the capital.

Yes, we have a right to go and peacefully protest like the students that are all peacefully protesting the so called genocide war in between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Because they don't exist.

They exist, despite the left media not wanting or willing to cover it.

Trump is both stupid and dangerous. Keep him away from the White House.

Oh, and constitutionally deny half the country their voting rights to elect a person they like, flipmode: now imagine if the right would do the opposite to Biden, the left would gather together to peacefully protest at the Capitol just peacefully as they are at all these universities.

Nobody worries about Trump,but insecure foreigner,Christie Theigan sum up what most people think of Trump

-15 ( +0 / -15 )

The only thing from a global perspective that is unique in his vision is the abortion aspect which he is devolving to the states.

The migration problem is a hot issue worldwide and especially in Europe where Muslim migration has caused a massive upsurge in the popularity of the far right. And immigration has always been a controversial topic in Asia.

The liberal bias of the media is a global issue as well, especially thanks to all the libturds who run social media from hyper liberal San Francisco.

@: He’ll focus on crime and the border, 

If he does he'll once again distort reality using doctored data, while pushing more unsubstantiated conspiracy theories, Then his media, US and foreign, and his cult members including those that are useful idiots for Putin and Xi, will parrot what he says. The far right don't care about evidence, instead use feels and myths to defend their lame beliefs.

Think the media took it out of context as usual, they’re the morons.

Nothing taken out of context. Read the transcript. Trump doesn’t understand what “civilian” means.

And he seems to imply that he’d be OK with shooting civilian immigrants, which is against the Constitution.

16 ( +17 / -1 )

Biden and Obama and Bush better hope there is immunity for Presidents.

illegals? They obviously need to be deported.

Abortion? Up to each state. If it’s a key issue for you, go live where it matches what you want.

-20 ( +4 / -24 )

Yeah, get rid of the immigrants, you know, the ones that do the work that lazy Americans wont do.

Sorry, not sure what you’re talking about, but nothing could be further from truth, not to mention they shouldn’t be in the country illegally in the first place.

Putin and Xi are hoping and praying for a Trump Victory.

If that were remotely true then they wouldn’t be spreading disinformation all over social media to sour his prospects. Doubt that Vlad or Xi even pay attention to Biden, they don’t need to.

-19 ( +4 / -23 )

Nothing taken out of context.

The left take everything out of context, everything.

Read the transcript. Trump doesn’t understand what “civilian” means. 

I read it, again, the left take everything out of context embellish it with more liberal hyped crap and then try re-sell it as something completely different. Not at all surprised.

And he seems to imply that he’d be OK with shooting civilian immigrants, which is against the Constitution.

The left seems ok with violating not only his, but our Constitutional rights as well, not sure what you’re getting at. And to most Americans, they care more about their wellbeing first over non-citizens that entered the country illegally.

-21 ( +2 / -23 )

I think he meant through the election.

I know exactly what he meant and as usually, he’s looking at one side of the liberal coin, and nothing more.

-19 ( +2 / -21 )

Biden and Obama and Bush better hope there is immunity for Presidents.

lol Yeah, totally. Because what Trump did is just like Bush or Obama.

Abortion? Up to each state.

Yet Trump won't commit to vetoing any national push to ban abortion.

If it’s a key issue for you, go live where it matches what you want.

Until they ban it nationally. The right loves states rights until they control the federal government.

possible mass deportations of migrants by the U.S. military

Here's hoping! Any sovereign state can and should deport illegal immigrants - by force if necessary.

-11 ( +3 / -14 )

The latest news show that Trump is outpolling Biden who is also the least popular US president in 70 years.

No wonder Trump haters are in a spin and a full scaremongering mode ala "Revenge on America is the plan &  he is beholden to Russia and China. Same old kind of nonsense.

"Ahead of the US elections 2024, US President Joe Biden has emerged as the least popular president in 70 years, according to a survey conducted by Gallup poll. Biden earned the title, by securing 38.7% job approval, way lower than Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter."

-17 ( +3 / -20 )

I fully support Trump to get his revenge on all these liars and cheaters.

False witness against others has consequences. Dems will be like “oh we need to come together for the country” once they lose in November.

Nope. Trials and jail and fines and penalties and firings for them all. Whatever our judicial system, Republican biased judge and a grand jury in a red state allows.

Yes, because it's that easy to move.

Anyone notice who the rightwingers here so quickly switched from state's rights to now being fully in favor of banning it nationally?

No, cheating is for team Trump. They've cheated in Michigan, Nevada, Arizona, and Georgia now.

Hard to believe much from the anti-American posters that claim to speak for most Americans, yet claim they are actually citizens of the US, but then those same posters don't know the actual meaning of 'majority' and 'peaceful', they use a meaning from their own and the far right's lexicon, which usually is considerably different.They tend to be an out of touch minority that think their neighbors who have different opinions are the enemy, not foreign powers, they claim to believe in democracy, except when their cult leader loses and tells them 'elections are bad'.

The perverted rantings of an outright authoritarian and dictator, no different than Hitler, Stalin, and his three favorites from the current era; Putin, Xi, and Kim. I expect him to embrace The Mullahs tomorrow as "geniuses"...

He and his cabal of far-right crazies will destroy our democracy - and try to institute a criminal kleptocracy...but they'll fail...

Asked if states should monitor women's pregnancies to see if they have had abortions in defiance of a ban, Trump replied: "I think they might do that."

That's the dagger that will slay the autocrat...he's managed to foment outrage in both his former supporters and his opponents...

The evangelicals and Christian conservatives who all swear life begins at conception are repelled by him embracing "killing children" up until the 15th week, and he's now admitted to the majority of Americans who support women's freedom over their own bodies that he's willing to use Repub big government to punish them for their medical choices...

The pressure of his trials, his family's failure to support him, his former trusted aides turning on him left and right, and his dwindling finances are being reflected in his mostly monosyllabic responses...

"Ding, Bing, and Bam" are not the utterings of a competent mind...

Hard to believe much from the anti-American posters that claim to speak for most Americans, yet claim they are actually citizens of the US,

Most of the people on this site complaining about America aren’t even Americans, at the same time, a lot on the left would rather deny the right their constitutional rights at every turn, Trump’s without a doubt.

but then those same posters don't know the actual meaning of 'majority' and 'peaceful',

The left

they use a meaning from their own and the far right's lexicon, which usually is considerably different.

And the left don’t? They want to control every aspect of your life, they want to tell you what to wear, how to vote, how to eat, how to think, what to say, when to laugh, when to be outraged, how many genders there are, making money and being a capitalist is bad, spooning off the government is good, forming your own individual opinion is bad, conformity, and One group thought is always good.

They tend to be an out of touch minority

Half of the country it’s not anywhere close to being a minority or out of touch, quite the opposite.

that think their neighbors who have different opinions are the enemy, not foreign powers, they claim to believe in democracy, except when their cult leader loses and tells them 'elections are bad'.

Summed up liberal mindset to a tee.

Right, so you proved my claim true. Republicans will pretend to be all for states rights until they're in charge nationally, and now suddenly they're actually not for states rights and want to ban abortion nationally. We can see very clearly now how Republicans would be fine with banning it nationally. Where do people after that?

also you who says government forced vaccination nationwide had no relevance to control of one’s health but abortion up until birth does.

It's not. People weren't forced to be vaccinated. There was no national mandate that people be vaccinated. And I'm not sure if you know this, but you can't catch a pregnancy.

I notice you also whine about ancillary things but don’t talk about any actual crimes in this case.

And neither do you. You just keep (inaccurately) claiming there's no crime, whilst completely ignoring any of the latest news or updates. Anything revealed today that actually strengthens Trump's defense? I think not.

Biden needs to face reality, that if he tries to stay in office Trump will win! Biden has lost his base with blanket support for Israel and limp wristed efforts on illegal immigrants, not to mention the real danger that he won't physically last another term! He needs to step down and give anyone else a go. As it is Trump is a shoe in which is a very scary prospect for the US and the world!

actually no, as I said each state can decide for themselves. If you don’t like what your state does, move (or dont get yourself into needing an abortion. You don’t “catch” pregnancy, right?)

then you whattabouted a National ban as why my solution is no good. So in response I said guess you would need to move to another country if that happened.

oops.

then you whattabouted a National ban as why my solution is no good

It's not whataboutism to point out that Trump has not commited to vetoing a national abortion ban. It's right in the article.

He would not commit to vetoing any attempt to introduce a nationwide U.S. abortion ban.

im for each state to decide, with the common exceptions. not a National ban.

No you're not. You just claimed people should just move if it's banned nationally.

The MAGA cult is just full on fascist now. They must be stopped.

Trump said that "I think we're going have a big victory and I think there will be no violence" -- but when pushed, added that "if we don't win, you know, it depends."

In other words, if I don’t win, I’ll claim mass fraud yet again.

I think that would be a fourth election ( if I’ve missed any I apologize) in which he’s claimed mass fraud without evidence.

Ridiculous human being.

Wow look at that:

53% up in 5 days.

185% YTD

287% up in a year.

and winning all the swing states in the 3 different polls this week, including CNN rofl

this weak desperate case is having zero of the expected impact.

What’s next?

-18 ( +0 / -18 )

In other words, if I don’t win, I’ll claim mass fraud yet again.

Well, the Dems are trying every trick in the book, the sham trials are one.

I think that would be a fourth election ( if I’ve missed any I apologize) in which he’s claimed mass fraud without evidence.

With what we know now over the last 4 years with documents, whistleblowers, and sworn testimonies, the election was nowhere near as truthful as the left trying to force-feed us.

Ridiculous human being.

The left is worse,p particularly this admin.

-17 ( +0 / -17 )

Fantasy.

According to the left which means, nothing.

did those false indictments help Trump take an increasing lead in all 4 of these states?

Lol there's nothing false about them. Trump and his team of fascists conspired to interfere in and commit election fraud in multiple states, yet somehow you absurdly claim the Democrats are the real cheaters. This is delusional.

After Stormy and McDougall testify? I'd say Melania with a brick in her purse...

Joe Biden trails Donald Trump in new national poll on 2024 election

Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden by six percentage points in a new national poll from CNN, with nearly half of voters saying they're planning to place their support behind Trump this fall.

Yeah, and a recent Marist Poll had Biden ahead.

Best look at all the polls if you want to go down that route. It’s more honest.

Are you going to tell us about Biden enabling genocide again and how ‘I don’t like Trump but…’ again?

Not the most original approach.

7 ( +11 / -4 )

The former Insurrectionist-in-Chief has brainwashed tens of millions about his leadership and negotiation skills.

It should remind us of an Austrian born former Corporal of the Wehrmacht who also brainwashed tens of millions of Germans about his political skills with dire consequences for, not only Germany and Europe, but the world at large.

8 ( +9 / -1 )

Did Trump ever get to the bottom of how millions of illegals voted Democrat in 2016 which deprived him of winning the popular vote?

7 ( +10 / -3 )

Hillary believed the polls. Rubes believe polls. Pools can't be believed, other than the one where every vote is counted, and everyone gets one vote - the election. Everything else is biased, directed speculation.

And by that note, in the last poll, Biden won by a landslide. Seeing as Trump banned abortion, tried to run an insurrection, crashed the economy, and is now an adjudicated criminal, there's no reason to think Biden won't win by just as much a landslide as last time.

7 ( +10 / -3 )

Biden would be 82 at the start of his next term...let that sink in! Too old with no credibility left! Trump will win unless the Dems come up with an alternative! You saw it here first....;)

After Stormy and McDougall testify? I'd say Melania with a brick in her purse...

No, she won’t.

Nirvana, wrote the intro, just change 'teen' to 'fascism'

it's fun to lose and pretend"

The fact that Trump has to stay married to this clearly very angry, unhappy woman, while she gets to hear testimony of him cheating on her with a porn star while she was pregnant, is just the icing on the cake. After court, he gets to go home and face her. Sounds real fun. Schadenfreude is sometimes great.

Unfounded fears by the far left extremists, although more strict law and order wouldn't be a bad thing in the US.

Unfounded fears by the far left extremists

They're Trump's own words. He's the one stoking the fears.

But yes, whine about the messengers, because that's how intelligent people do things right?

MAGAs have plans for a new fascist America but they forget that the only bills that will make it through the Senate are those approved by Democrats or increasing spending. The military also doesn't look kindly on those with no self control so no help there.

What a sad excuse for an "article."

On immigration, a potentially decisive issue in the 2024 election amid record numbers of people illegally crossing the southern U.S. border with Mexico, Trump said he would have "no choice" but to launch mass deportations.

What's wrong with that? They're in the US illegally. Wouldn't you try to evict people who entered your home illegally and won't leave?

On abortion, another hot-button election topic, Trump repeated his stance that he would leave the issue for the individual U.S. states to decide whether to prosecute those who violate bans on the procedure.

Trump has claimed credit after the conservative-leaning U.S. Supreme Court featuring three Trump-appointed judges overturned the federal right to abortion in 2022, prompting several Republican-led states to introduce full or partial bans.

Asked if states should monitor women's pregnancies to see if they have had abortions in defiance of a ban, Trump replied: "I think they might do that."

He would not commit to vetoing any attempt to introduce a nationwide U.S. abortion ban.

More bloviating. All that means is he's leaving it to the states to decide, which is what the Supreme Court decided was constitutionally the right thing to do. The pro-abortionists lost the argument but can't admit defeat.

"I think the enemy from within, in many cases, is much more dangerous for our country than the outside enemies of China, Russia, and various others," Trump said in the interview when asked if he would be willing to suspend parts of the U.S. Constitution to deal with opponents.

He doesn't need to suspend the constitution to deal with these people. Criminal law already provides for that. The issue is whether the institutions will investigate and prosecute their own people. They won't - the power structure and corruption is so entrenched that they'll fight any attempt tooth and nail to drain the swamp. But the more they fight, the more public support they'll lose because the corruption is now so blatant that even the average sleepy Joe and Jill can't ignore it.

A bit disappointed that nobody could clear that up.

I get the sense Trump supporters take an a la carte approach to his election fraud claims.

Halfway to being serious people.

He is enabling it. Or are you saying Biden admin continuing to send weapons to IDF, US alone vetoing numerous Gaza ceasefire resolutions at UN and now protecting Netanyahu and his ministers from ICC war crimes warrant is not enabling the Gaza massacre? Thats not gonna fly is it.

I guess the only solution is to support Trump who will be even more hawkish. Hur

10 ( +11 / -1 )

I guess the only solution is to support Trump who will be even more hawkish.

The one thing we can say with absolute certainty is that no matter what Biden does, Trump would have made it 10 times worse were he dealing with it.

Biden's only problem is that he's stuck between a rock and a hard place, and trying to find a nuanced response; nuance of course being beyond the intellectual comprehension abilities of extremists.

Quo Primum

Chances are almost 100% that Trump did not express anything even close to as sinister as this hit-piece is portraying it.

Oh, don't worry, it is every bit as sinister as it is quoted.

 no matter what Biden does, Trump would have made it 10 times worse were he dealing with it.

Nothing but scaremongering.

-15 ( +1 / -16 )

If he does than he will deserve to be criticized for it the same way. But as of now and the last 7 months it is Biden enabling the Gaza genocide so he owns this and the criticism is rightly his. Like it or not.

Biden is far, far better for Palestine than Trump was or ever would be. There's no comparison between the two.

9 ( +11 / -2 )

So you must find Trump’s stance on this even more repulsive.

Why is it repulsive?

Biden is far, far better for Palestine than Trump was or ever would be. There's no comparison between the two.

Yeah, uhhh, dunno about that one...

Biden is far, far better for Palestine than Trump was or ever would be. There's no comparison between the two.

I think that 150 thousand dead and wounded Gazans in half a year of this carnage Biden continues to enable by sending IDF his bombs would disagree with you. Guess if / when Trump becomes POTUS everyone will find out.
