Clyburn Claims Trump Does Not Plan to Have an Election: He ‘Thinks He’s Going to Hoodwink’ Americans

Days after President Donald Trump threw out the idea of delaying the general election until it is safe for Americans to vote in person, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) is sharing his elections fears.

Clyburn participated in a virtual event hosted by the Council on Foreign Relations, where he shared his concern that Trump will “try not to have this election at all and try to install himself as a strong man.”

“You know there’s one thing about turning 80 … you can say what you feel like saying,” Clyburn said. “I don’t think this man plans to have an election. I think this man thinks he’s going to hoodwink the people of this country much the way that the people of Germany was hoodwinked back in the 1930s.”

“That’s what I’ve said, that’s what I believe,” he added.

Watch the video below:

Clyburn’s comments come after he predicted that Trump would try to stay in the White House if he lost the election on November 3, as IJR reported.

During an appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, Clyburn said, “I don’t think he plans to leave the White House. He doesn’t plan to have fair and unfettered elections. I believe that he plans to install himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold onto office.”

Despite concerns that Trump may try to delay the election, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said, “[Trump] has not looked at delaying any election.”

Instead, he argued the tweet was designed to bring attention to what he claimed is the problem of vastly expanding mail-in voting ahead of the general election. 

“It is responsible for him to say that if we try to go to 100% universal mail-in ballots, will we have an election result on November 3? No, I would suggest that we wouldn’t even have it on January 3,” he said.

  1. So while they want everyone to worry about Trump doing something with the Election, they have a Prosecutor in NY, trying to take a back door attack on our 2nd. Amendment by suing the NRA and trying to abolish the organization completely! Meanwhile Biden has previously stated he wants to take guns (on tape) away and if elected has promised Beto O’Rourke (who is also on tape about taking guns away) a Cabinet position enabling him to do just that! The NRA hasn’t burned anything or torn down any statues, or killed any police officers now have they? With the record numbers of gun sales, it should be a real good indication on how well this is going to work for the Democrat Party. I will add that 50% (50 some percent) of background checks and firearm purchases were made by blacks. Think about it……I would probably safely assume most of those purchases (over 80 million from March to June) are not made by liberal Democrats!!!Nor were hey purchased by criminals and felons rather law abiding citizens. Do you think they have the Biden votes, or votes for any Democrat Governor or Mayor from these people? Or do you think people are catching on to all the BSand see wt is coming if the Dems get lucky?

  2. “God’s got this and He loves you. No worries.” Michele

    I am confused, Michele

    If “God has this”, then nobody needs to vote, right? Everything is predestined and it won’t matter what we do, is that it?

    You are a fool, and Matt Gaetz is a tool.

  3. Democrats can’t handle truth and are often wrong about Trump. Example, Russia, Ukraine, South Korea, etc. Democrats are also not concerned about fair elections. Example, abolishing the electoral college, forgetting voter ID, and mail-in ballot fraud.

  4. “General Confusion:
    You said: “You have to admit that it at least seems plausible that he is thinking along those lines, the way things are going. Prove me wrong.”
    Spend 5 minutes with Google and prove yourself wrong. No President has the power to stop an election; only Congress can do that. Like I said, spend 5 minutes instead of having a panic attack over what some assclown theorizes.” Jeff

    Jeff: I know what I said. What part of prove me wrong confuses you?

    I know what the Constitution says. I don’t need to look anything up. What I want Cult-45 to do is to explain King Donald The Loser’s actions and likely attempts to subvert the Constitution and our laws and why they STILL want to support this criminal with a long history of getting away with things Scott free. A Teflon Don.

    Can YOU do that?

  5. Clyburn, you should quit talking altogether, because when you speak, all that comes out is stupidity. Get used to it, DONALD J. TRUMP WILL WIN ANOTHER 4 YEARS, AND YOUR POMPOUS A$$ will be cussing and crying. Get over it !

  6. All the trumpublican rats will stay on the USS tRump as it sinks into the water like the Titanic. Two birds, one stone! lol

  7. Clyburn thinks he can hoodwink people in to thinking he is a useful, intelligent congressmen.
    But actually he’s an 80 year old fool.

  8. It never ceases to amaze me at how eerily similar the Democrat’s fear of Trump is compared to the Republican’s fear of Obama used to be. The same things were said about Obama. After 8 years, people were sure he was going to try to change the rules so he could stay in office and the Left was so in love with him that it would really happen. People, people, people, please relax! You give these men too much credit for power. It’s my understanding that things in government were set up they way they were in our country to prevent any President from having too much power. Just breathe. God’s got this and He loves you. No worries.

    1. True, the repeated investigations and sabotaging of the President truly shows how limited his power really is.

  9. Yet another loud mouthed racist negro hoping to make PRESIDENT Trump look bad. Sure hope the voters see what a miserable bunch of socialist wannabes and racist the demonicrats are and vote them out.

  11. Donna: you agreed with Fred, so my bad. On the other hand, Fred may have confused me, too.

    None of the others have admitted what they will do if King Donald The Loser tries to pull a fast one on the electorate.

    1. A fast one???? confuction you are the party of voter fraud and there have been many instances so far from your side of the aisle.

    2. You are right. We don’t need any President or future President to pull a fast one. We need voter ID, we need to refuse mail-in voting, and we need to secure the electoral college, even at the state level. We must stop voter fraud at all costs.

  12. Greg: “ I actually know Rep. Clyburn.”

    Sorry to hear that. Everyone experiences an unfortunate event or two in their life. I won’t hold it against you. 😁

  13. There’s another thing about turning 80, Mr Clyburn: Saying the stupid shit that you do is a strong indication of dementia. Ask your buddy, Slow Joe. Oh wait, he’s been saying stupid shit his entire political career. As I said, dementia…a common trait among DemoRats regardless of age. TDS case in point.

    Seriously, who elects these phuking idiots???

  14. “I don’t think” tells it all. Just another Dem who is spewing BS to get libtards going.

  15. The Dems are deflecting to other people…the only people trying to hoodwink are the Dems. Compare your own party,Dems, with the Nazis…you use the protestors and anarchists as your handmaidens to beat people up, terrorize, plant the seeds of discontent…hmmm sounds like how Hitler used the Browns Shirts and Gestapo, before WWII. Make sure you terrorize the population then they are sure to capitulate.

  16. General Confusion
    Don’t group me with these people. I totally agree with Clyburn, read my other posts on this thread. I am NOT a Trumper. That is a total insult to me.

    1. Donna, “These people” are Americans who love their country and can actually see the good Trump is doing. I would never group you in with these people. That would be a total insult to them.

  17. I actually know Rep. Clyburn, having met and talked with him here in our home state of S.C. He is undoubtedly the most ignorant (and prejudiced!) human being it has ever been my displeasure to meet…!

  18. Fred, Donna, Garry, Jason, Cherl, Carol, Robert, Michelle:

    Will you sing the same tune if Dear Leader actually DOES do something odd, unaccounted for today, to cheat in or fiddle with the upcoming election?

    You have to admit that it at least seems plausible that he is thinking along those lines, the way things are going.

    Prove me wrong.

    1. You have NEVER been right confuction especially in the head. Please read my reply to prima donna because it applies to you also.

    1. Do Democrats do anything else? I think we only have 10 or 11 years on this planet before we die of cow farts and the deadliest coronavirus known to man anyways.

  19. If any of these dems had a brain, I would say they have lost them! Everything they do, like cheating and corruption, they try to project on the Republican Party, especially our president, when in fact, they are the guilty party for everything negative!

  20. “You know there’s one thing about turning 80 … you can say what you feel like saying,” Clyburn said..

    Yes. It gives us a clear example on the onset of dementia.

  21. Yes. Having the Democrats housing their constituency in teniments that are hot beds of crime. For decades that have failed to do a thing.

    But I guess you think the massive crime spikes in those cities are a positive.

    Trump should have never come to DC and this country would be 1.000% better off. After this election he can slither back to any state that will take him. be? Who cares what kind of life Trump had or will have in the future? I totally agree that Trump is corrupt, his friends are corrupt, and every Republican who stood by him and did his bidding is corrupt. So people should be on their toes and look out for any tricks Trump has up his sleeve. That’s what I agree with.

    1. prima donna you want to call President Trump corrupt?????? You need to take a good long look at your democRAT/communist/fascist party. The reason I left your party is because it so corrupt, vicious, nasty, violent and anti American. One party rule is your party. Riots, looting, arson, murder, hate and lies are your party. You have no morals or ethics and are NOT for the common people because you are ALL elitists. You are the party of racism, slavery, kkk, jim crow laws and that wonderful margaret sanger of planned parenthood fame. She placed planned parenthood in black neighborhoods to eradicate the black race because they were not human. She and your party have murdered more than 61 million babies and that must make you proud. More black babies are murdered now than are born. It looks like you are succeeding at what margaret sanger, your hero (spelled hemorrhoid) started. You are a first class asshole as well as the rest of your party. I agree that your party should be utterly destroyed and ALL who belong to it. That’s what I agree with.

  23. Jason, You have to love the fear mongering and nonsensical rhetoric coming from the right. They can’t help themselves from spreading false information and hate.
    I like your idea of 5 day voting though.

  24. Donna
    Totally agree with what? President Trump had a nice life before DC and he’ll have one after DC…..after 2024.

  25. You have to love the fear mongering and nonsensical rhetoric coming from the Left. They can’t help themselves from spreading false information and hate.
    Rather than pushing for mail-in ballots, which are bound to be late, and possibly fraudulent, why not open the polls and allow people to vote over a five days period. Spread it out by last name if you’d like.

  26. Hoodwink. Adam? You mean the way you and the pack of Faux “civil rights leaders” in Congress treat Americans like clueless, congenital racists? You are a cancer metastasizing within this nation!

  27. 2020 Psyop preparation: lay the groundwork for a contested election. Clyburn is a very powerful democrat. He is the singular reason why Biden is the dem nominee. Him saying this is planting seeds. Keep your eyes open for shenanigans like we have never before seen.
