Politico obtained a preview of Fox Host Judge Jeanine Pirro’s upcoming interview with President Trump in which he promised to put down any violent rioting that might follow an election victory for the president.
We’ll put them down very quickly if they do that. We have the right to do that. We have the power to do that if we want.
The president is referring to the authority granted him by the Insurrection Act, which he has threatened to invoke multiple times since riots broke out in May after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
According to the Washington Examiner: “The Insurrection Act allows the president to deploy the military and National Guard within the country in extreme circumstances to quell civil disorder.”
There is reason to believe that the rioting in major cities will intensify if President Trump wins a second term. Democrats like Joe Biden have hinted that would be the case, and Biden’s media goons have only amplified the threat of impending violence.
BLM leaders have vowed to “burn it down” if they don’t get what they want. However, Trump has stepped fully into his “law and order” platform in recent weeks, so his threat to send in forces authorized by the Insurrection Act to stop the conflict should give Democrats pause before encouraging further violence.
The full interview is set to air Saturday evening on Fox News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine.
