Mike Huckabee: Election will be decided by ‘bullets, not ballots’ if Trump is prevented from running

During a recent episode of his Huckabee program on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee said that if Donald Trump’s legal cases prevent him from running for president in 2024, there’s likely going to be violence.

“Do you know how political opponents to those in power are dealt with in third-world dictatorships, banana republics, and communist regimes?” Huckabee said in a video flagged by Right Wing Watch. “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 are 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,” he continued.

“Here’s the problem,” Huckabee said. “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.”
