Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee (R) said 2024 will be the last election “decided by ballots rather than bullets” if Donald Trump’s legal troubles prevent him from winning a second term.
“Do you know how political opponents to those in power are dealt with in Third World dictatorships, banana republics and communist regimes?” Huckabee asked during a segment on his Trinity Broadcast Network show over the weekend.
He continued: “The people in power use their police agencies to arrest their opponents for made up crimes in an attempt to discredit them, bankrupt them, imprison them, exile them, or all of the above.”
“If you’re not paying attention, you may not realize that Joe Biden is using exactly those tactics to make sure that Donald Trump is not his opponent in 2024,” Huckabee said. “Here’s the problem: If these tactics end up working to keep Trump from winning or even running in 2024, it is going to be the last American election that will be decided by ballots rather than bullets.”
