Comments Off on Trump may incite a civil war if he is defeated on November 3—Spike Lee
Ace Hollywood producer Spike Lee has hinted that US President Donald Trump’s defeat could spark up a civil war if he decides not to leave the White House if he loses the November 3 election to arch-rival Joe Biden.
The BlacKkKlansman director made the assertion in an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Friday, August 27.
Lee stressed on the level of hate currently witnessed by black people for no other reason other than the color of their skin, describing it as ‘Heartbreaking” he noted that he “can’t have a restful sleep because of it.
He accused President Trump of spreading the hate that has led black people to be killed like animals.
“We have so much hate in the world – specifically the United States of America,” Lee said.
“This guy in the White House, and what he’s done, and what this just, level of hate, Anderson, it’s heartbreaking,” Lee told Cooper, adding that he “prays to God” that Trump is “out” of the White House on November 3.
“I think you talked about this, too. I have — I think there’s going to be shenanigans, some skulduggery that if he loses, particularly in a close vote, he might not want to leave,” Lee said.
“Anderson, are we coming to a civil war? Lee asked.
“The next civil war in the United States of America. I ask you that question.”
His comments come few days after Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Trump would “investigate ballots” before accepting the result of the November election.
“The president has always said he’ll see what happens and make a determination in the aftermath,” McEnany said as she was questioned by reporters about Trump’s unsupported claims that mail-in voting will cause fraud.
“It’s the same thing he said last November.”
“He wants a free election, a fair election, and he wants confidence in the results of the election, particularly when you have states like Nevada doing mass mail-out voting to their voting rolls,” McEnany explained.
