\Our most recent book is titled Divided We Stand: The 2020 Elections and American Politics. The 2024 race has begun. Trump seeks retribution against critics.
Former President Donald Trump joined controversial radio host Glenn Beck for an interview on Tuesday and was asked flat out if he would use the office of the president to jail his political opponents – as he promised to do in 2016.
“You said in 2016, you know, ‘lock her up.’ And then when you became president, you said, ‘We don’t do that in America.’ That’s just not the right thing to do. That’s what they’re doing. Do you regret not locking her up? And if you’re president again, will you lock people up?” Beck asked Trump.
“Well, I’ll give you an example. Uh, the answer is you have no choice because they’re doing it to us,” Trump replied, making clear he would.
"The Republicans are very high class. They've got to be a little bit lower class, I suspect. They sit back and they say, '... other priorities.' Any Republican that doesn't act on Democrat fraud should be immediately primaried. And get out. Out!"— Howard Mortman (@HowardMortman) July 30, 2023
