Trump Campaign Backtracks After He Threatens…

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign issued a statement clarifying his comments made at a Dayton, Ohio rally on Saturday, following his statement that there would be a “bloodbath for the country” if he isn’t elected in 2024.



During the rally, while discussing car manufacturing, Trump stated:

“Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the whole — That’s going to be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country.”

Trump’s remarks were made in the context of promising a “100% tariff” on cars manufactured in Mexico and sold in the United States. His comments received significant media attention, prompting his campaign to issue a statement to clarify that Trump was referring to the potential economic consequences if he were to lose the election.

CNN’s Alayna Treene reported to Manu Raju:

“Now, Manu, it was unclear exactly what Donald Trump was referring to when he made those comments. However, the Trump campaign later tried to clarify those remarks, telling us that he was referring to the auto industry and he was warning of an economic bloodbath.”

CNN displayed a statement on screen from Trump Campaign Spokesperson Karoline Leavitt, emphasizing, “Biden’s policies will create an economic bloodbath for the auto industry and autoworkers.”

Treene also reported that the Biden campaign swiftly criticized Trump’s “bloodbath” remarks, quoting spokesman James Singer, who stated, “Trump wants another January 6, but the American people are going to give him another electoral defeat this November because they continue to reject his extremism, his affection for violence, and his thirst for revenge.”

In response, the Trump campaign accused the Biden campaign of deceptive editing, with Steven Cheung, one of Trump’s top advisers, stating, “Crooked Joe Biden and his campaign are engaging in deceptively out-of-context editing that puts Roman Polanski to shame.”
