Vice President Joe Biden recently asked: “Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected?” Biden has tried to argue that Trump is the source of unrest in the country, though almost all of the violence the country has endured over the last several months has come from the left.
Democrats have claimed Trump supporters will riot if the president loses, though in reality it is the Democrats who are threatening to riot, or even to secede, if the race is close.
CBS News reported Friday that the left wing of the party is already making demands about who should staff a Biden-Harris administration, calling it a sign “of the Democratic Party fight to come.” There will be internal fights, too, if Biden loses, but those fights would take place within the party — not within the government itself.
Most likely, he would not have to do so: the election results themselves would undermine the rioters’ claims to political legitimacy, especially if Trump wins places like Minnesota.
