Donald Trump said on Saturday that If he doesn't win the November presidential election, it will mean the likely end of American democracy..

The Republican candidate made this claim in a speech to his supporters in Ohio, after repeating his baseless claim that the 2020 loss to Democrat Joe Biden was the result of electoral fraud. “If we don't win these elections, I don't think there will be any other elections in this country.“Trump said.

The billionaire, who is criminally charged in Georgia for attempting to overturn the result of the 2020 election in that state, He won enough delegates this week to mathematically clinch the Republican nomination.

The rematch with Biden in the general election is likely to be extremely close. A Reuters/Ipsos poll last week showed the two candidates in a technical tie among registered voters.

The former Republican president has been using increasingly dystopian rhetoric in his campaign speeches about the state of the country.

In the middle of a section of his speech about imposing tariffs on imported cars and foreign competition for the auto industry, Trump declared: “If I am not elected, it will be a bloodbath for the entire country.“.

When asked for a response Trump's 'bloodbath' commentBiden campaign spokesman James Singer condemned Trump's “extremism,”his thirst for revenge” and his “threats of political violence.

Trump also appealed to blacks and Hispanics, who will play a key role in the November decision. In his appeal to minority voters, he cited a central theme of the campaign, which Too many illegal immigrants have crossed the US-Mexico border since Biden took office.

“No one has been hurt more by Joe Biden's immigrant invasion than our great African American and Hispanic communities,” said Trump, who claimed, without citing any evidence, that illegal immigrants were taking their jobs.
