Trump issues warning to opponents: 'It would be very bad' if his military, police and biker supporters got 'tough'
By Daniel Dale Washington Bureau Chief
Thu., March 14, 2019

WASHINGTON--U.S. President Donald Trump has issued what seems to be a warning of armed pushback against his political opponents, telling a right-wing website on Monday that "it would be very bad, very bad" if his supporters in the military, police and a motorcycle group were provoked into getting "tough."

Trump uttered the remark in an interview with Breitbart News, a right-wing website that supports him. It came, according to Breitbart, as Trump was arguing that "the left" plays politics in a "tougher" and more "vicious" manner than the pro-Trump right even though "the tough people" are on Trump's side.

"I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump -- I have the tough people, but they don't play it tough -- until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad," Trump said. ... Trump did not specify who "they" were. Breitbart did not emphasize the quote, which it published in an article headlined "Exclusive -- President Donald Trump: Paul Ryan Blocked Subpoenas of Democrats."

The quote prompted criticism and alarm when the Star tweeted it. ... "This is how an authoritarian talks. Happening right in front of us," Brendan Nyhan, a University of Michigan public policy professor who co-founded an initiative monitoring the state of U.S. democracy, said on Twitter.

I generally do not consider Trump's tweets and comments worthy of attention in LBN. I'll make an exception for this.

Trump to Breitbart on how the left plays tough: "I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump -- I have the tough people, but they don't play it tough -- until they go to a certain point and then it would be very bad, very bad."
