Rick Wilson: Trump is prepared to unleash the 'crazies' on the country [View all]

During an appearance on MSNBC's "The Katie Phang Show," former GOP campaign consultant and current Lincoln Project founder Rick Wilson raised the red flag that a re-elected Donald Trump will plunge the country into chaos if he is re-elected in 2024. Speaking with the host, Wilson noted the former president's recent comments where he suggested he could use the government to go after his political enemies.

"He is going to use the power of the state," Wilson explained. "All my libertarian friends should be paying attention: the power of the state to achieve his personal, political vengeance on people who he believes have wronged him."

According to Wilson, voters who fear Trump should take him at his word. "This is not America, to quote David Bowie," he continued. "This is something much darker and much different and much more dangerous. We have to pay attention to it, we have to listen to it."

"If he's, back he's going to cause enormous damage in this country to individuals, groups, political opponents at every level and every scale," he added. "The people around him this time will not be restrained by grown-ups or adults or establishment Washington types. It going to all be the crazies. They are going to go absolutely wild with this guy, and he's going to let them do it."
