Trump’s pattern of behavior is exactly that of a fascist hoping to seize power and remake a nation. The troops in Portland were the first of many of these occupations. He has a secret army carved out of the Homeland Security budget.
“President Trump declined to say whether he will accept the results of the November election, claiming without evidence that mail-in voting due to the coronavirus pandemic could “rig” the outcome.”

July 19 “Fox News Sunday” interview: “No. I have to see. Look you — I have to see. No, I’m not going to just say ‘yes.’ I’m not going to say ‘no.’ And I didn’t last time, either,” he said.
Trump floats delaying the election
July 30 tweet: “With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history,” Trump tweeted. “It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely, and safely vote???”
September 13 rally: “The Democrats are trying to rig this election because that’s the only way they’re going to win,” he said.
September 23 Oval Office: “But in terms of time, we go to January 20th. But I think it’s better if you go before the election because I think this — this scam that the Democrats are pulling — it’s a scam — this scam will be before the United States Supreme Court. And I think having a 4-4 situation is not a good situation, if you get that,” he said.
August 20 rally: “So this is just a way they’re trying to steal the election, and everybody knows that. Because the only way they’re going to win is by a rigged election,” he said.
September 13 rally: “And 52 days from now we’re going to win Nevada, and we’re going to win four more years in the White House. And then after that, we’ll negotiate, right? Because we’re probably — based on the way we were treated — we are probably entitled to another four after that,” he said.
- “Well, we’re going to have to see what happens.”

- “Get rid of the ballots and … there won’t be a transfer, frankly.”
- “The ballots are out of control.”
- “The ballots — that’s a whole big scam.”
- “We want to make sure the election is honest, and I’m not sure that it can be.”
Trump floats remaining in office even after two terms
August 17 rally: “We are going to win four more years. And then after that, we’ll go for another four years because they spied on my campaign. We should get a redo of four years,” he said.
