CONSERVATIVE HQ -- Most conservatives we know have been puzzled by the steady stream of senior Democrat elected officials and high-profile pundits and political operatives coming out of nowhere every so often to claim that President Trump won’t leave office if he is defeated in the November election.
Most recently, Democrat House Majority Whip James Clyburn, claimed President Donald Trump has no intention of “peacefully” transferring power if he loses the November election, “I believe that he plans to install himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold onto office,” Clyburn said. He went on to claim Trump "doesn't plan to have fair and unfettered elections," and compared the president to fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. "I feel very strongly that [Trump] has taken on strong-arm tactics, and I feel very strongly that he is Mussolini. Putin is Hitler," Clyburn told CNN's "State of the Union" audience.
Even Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has gotten in on the act, claiming that “under pressure and political duress,” President Trump may pursue increasingly extreme measures to stay in power.
