Trump Sparks Outrage After Telling Crowd Biden Could Be ‘Shot’ Just ‘Three Weeks’ Into His Presidency

Published on October 27, 2020

At his rally Tuesday, President Trump sparked outrage online after he told supporters Joe Biden could be “shot” just weeks into his presidency and replaced by Sen. Kamala Harris.

While sharply criticizing Harris, Trump told his supporters that she “makes Bernie Sanders look like a serious conservative” and reminded voters that Harris would be next in line for the presidency should a President Biden somehow become incapacitated.

“Three weeks in — Joe’s shot, let’s go, Kamala, you ready? Most liberal person in the Senate,” Trump said.

“This will not be – we can’t let it happen – this will not be the first woman president. You’re going to have a woman president – this will not be the first woman president,” he ranted.

The crowd then erupted into cheers of “Ivanka!”

Trump paused and laughed.

“They’re all screaming Ivanka,” he chuckled.

Mother Jones’ D.C. bureau chief David Corn blasted Trump’s remarks, tweeting: “Damn. Trump is talking about Biden being assassinated weeks into his presidency. What nut is going to interpret this as an encouragement?”

Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, tweeted: “Donald Trump waxing poetic about Joe Biden’s murder if he’s elected: ‘Three weeks and Joe’s shot. Let’s go Kamala.’ Police wouldn’t tolerate this kind of threat from a citizen. They shouldn’t tolerate it from the President.”
