Many news channels have picked up on the story that President Trump has retweeted a video from a bunch of supporters where the leader of the group in the video plainly makes the remark that “The Only Good Democrat Is A Dead Democrat” —- and worse than retweeting it, the president is reported to have thanked the group for sharing the video.
How much impact will this have on the safety of Democrats from this point forward?
Is there any way on earth that this can be interpreted as somebody in government being agreeable to handling opposition with termination? Elimination? Execution? Murder?
Can such statements ever become a catalyst for violence?
PS: Mr. Trump did not comment directly on what Griffin says in the video, writing only, “Thank you Cowboys. See you in New Mexico!”
