President Trump reportedly told evangelical leaders at the White House on Monday that Republican losses in this year’s midterms will lead to liberals “violently” overturning his administration’s accomplishments for the Christian community.
“This Nov. 6 election is very much a referendum on not only me, it’s a referendum on your religion, it’s a referendum on free speech and the First Amendment,” Trump said during a private portion of an event in the State Dining Room, according to recorded excerpts obtained by NBC News.
The article goes on to state the following:
He added that there is an “unbelievable” amount of hatred and anger “for you and for me and for my family,” partly because of what he’s accomplished.
If the GOP loses control of Congress, he warned, “they will overturn everything that we’ve done and they’ll do it quickly and violently, and violently.” It’s unclear who specifically Trump was referring to.
“There’s violence. When you look at Antifa and you look at some of these groups — these are violent people,” he said.
