No, Trump Did Not Say Civil War Would Break Out If He Lost Election

The mainstream media absolutely lost their minds over the weekend after a speech 2024 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump made during a campaign stop in Ohio Saturday.

Specifically, they zeroed in on the word “bloodbath,” which he used to describe what would happen to the auto industry if he wasn’t elected.

Before we get to their fake news reporting, here’s what Trump said in context (transcribed from video):

“Mexico has taken, over a period of 30 years, 34 percent of the automobile manufacturing business in our country. China now is building a couple of massive plants, where they’re going to build the cars in Mexico and they think that they’re going to sell those cars into the United States with no tax at the border.

Let me tell you something to China. If you’re listening, President Xi, and you and I are friends, but he understands the way I deal, those big, monster car manufacturing plants that you’re building in Mexico right now, and you think you’re going to get that, you’re going to not hire Americans, and you’re going to sell the cars to us, no.

We’re going to put a 100 percent tariff on every single car that comes across the line, and you’re not going to be able to sell those cars – if I get elected. Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s gonna be a bloodbath for the whole, that’s going to be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country. That’ll be the least of it. But they’re not gonna sell those cars.”

Watch:

Clearly, he wasn’t talking about how he believed a civil war would happen in the United States if he wasn’t elected. But, similar to the “very fine people” hoax they perpetuated, the MSM spun his “bloodbath” comments in their reports to suggest that’s exactly what he was saying. Not surprisingly, Democrats, including Joe Biden and his reelection campaign, took the ball and ran with it:

Left out of their hyperventilating write-ups, of course, was not just the context but also the fact that “bloodbath” can mean many things:

This is something the MSM apparently only understands when they are using the term:

It’s a term Democrats have used many times over the years, too:

Lastly, never forget:

Hard pass.
