Supporters of President Trump who attended his rally in Hershey, Pa., on Tuesday warned that they think the president’s impeachment and removal from office would bring about “violence” and “the second Civil War.”
One Trump supporter, who donned a red, white and blue hat that read “Trump 2020” on the top, said that if Trump was removed from office, he thinks it “would cause physical violence in this country that we haven’t seen since the first Civil War.”
“I think it would become the second Civil War,” he continued.
One man at the rally repeatedly said that he doesn’t believe Trump will be removed in the Senate when approached by a reporter.
“He’s not gonna be removed. He’s not gonna be removed. He’s not gonna be removed,” he said
CBS News reporter responded: “Do you feel confident in that?” asked a CBS News reporter.
“My .357 Magnum is comfortable with that. End of story,” he added.
Another supporter speaking on the matter said that he thinks “there would be a strong,” “very negative,” movement with “possible violence.”
“There’ll be a lot of mad Americans. Possibly, 70, 80 thousand — 70, 80 million Americans on the loose, not very happy,” he said. “What we’re seeing is a divided country. Both sides are dug in, no one’s budging.”
“We have families torn apart — including my family,” he continued. “My daughters are liberal, I’m conservative. Now that this whole thing has been going on, we just had a problem at Thanksgiving. Very unfortunate.”
“I don’t think he’s going to get impeached,” said an elementary-aged supporter of the president. “I really don’t agree with it. I mean, he’s like the best president. It’s not gonna work out.”
