Ocasio-Cortez Claims Trump Could Imprison Her If Re-Elected

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has expressed her fear that former President Donald Trump, if re-elected, might imprison her and others, endangering the nation’s democracy.

Breitbart reported that Ocasio-Cortez shared her concerns about Trump’s potential actions during an appearance on Kara Swisher's podcast, On with Kara Swisher. Ocasio-Cortez highlighted the basis of her fears by referencing Trump's first campaign, which prominently featured the slogan "Lock her up."

She believes this mantra reflects his continued intent to target political opponents. “I mean, it sounds nuts, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this guy threw me in jail,” she stated.

Ocasio-Cortez articulated her belief that Trump would not hesitate to "round up people" if he returns to power. She underscored her seriousness by stating, “I take him at his word when he says that he’s going to round up people. I take him at his word when he threatens journalists. I take him at his word.”

On the podcast, Ocasio-Cortez also voiced her concern that Trump has learned from his initial presidency. She suggested that he would avoid mistakes he previously made in appointing professionals to key positions. “I feel like what we saw in his first presidency was an amuse-bouche to what his intentions are. He has learned from his mistakes...and he will not make that mistake next time,” she explained.

Biden Support Highlighted Due to High Stakes

Recognizing the significant stakes of the upcoming election, Ocasio-Cortez strongly endorses President Joe Biden's re-election bid. She emphasized, “Trump does absolutely have a chance to win. That is why I have thrown my support behind Biden early and I support it vociferously.”

Ocasio-Cortez expressed grave concerns about the potential consequences of a Trump victory, suggesting it could lead to the disintegration of democracy in the United States.

She remarked, “It is unequivocal that if Donald Trump wins, we are looking at the potential dissolution of democracy...and the question about what would happen to me or the Democratic Party is a joke compared to the question of what is going to happen to our country.”

In a Fox News interview with Sean Hannity, Trump rejected claims of divisiveness, stating, “Number one, they’re wrong. It has to stop, because otherwise, we’re not going to have a country.” He added that, following the election, he would have the right to pursue critics, citing alleged criminal activities by Joe Biden.

“Look, when this election is over, based on what they’ve done, I would have every right to go after them, and it’s easy, because it’s Joe Biden and you see all the criminality, all of the money that’s going into the family and him, all of this money from China, from Russia, from Ukraine,” Trump elaborated.

Renowned actor Robert De Niro also conveyed his concerns regarding Trump’s potential re-election. He warned of possible retribution from Trump, stating, “If he wins the election, you won’t be on the show anymore. He’ll come looking for me. There’ll be things that happen that none of us can imagine.”

De Niro expressed his preference for a return to normalcy with Biden in office. “We wanna live in a world that we want to live in and enjoy living in, or live in a nightmare? Vote for Trump and you’ll get the nightmare, vote for Biden and we’ll be back to normalcy,” he said.

Ocasio-Cortez’s Call to Action

Amidst these concerns, Ocasio-Cortez advocates for vigilance and active participation in the democratic process.

She strongly urges voters to consider the profound potential implications of the election on the country's future.

Ocasio-Cortez’s latest warnings echo her persistent criticism of Trump, reaffirming her commitment to uphold democratic values and counter threats to the political system. This ongoing political discourse highlights the significant divide and the high stakes in the upcoming election.

In conclusion, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has voiced substantial concerns about former President Donald Trump's possible re-election, fearing imprisonment and threats to democracy. Trump, while denying divisiveness, suggests he has grounds to target his critics post-election. The situation underscores a deeply polarized political climate as both sides prepare for a critical election.
