Conservative pundit makes alarming prediction about Trump’s rhetoric

Conservative commentator Charlie Sykes predicted Donald Trump will continue to escalate his inflammatory rhetoric ahead of at least three criminal trials and the 2024 presidential election.

“The level of his rhetoric seems to be intensifying against prosecutors, judges and maybe even jurors here,” Sykes said on MSNBC Thursday. “And I think people need to understand, you know, that this sounds like… the same old script. But he does seem to step it up just when you would think calmer minds would say, hey, we need to lower the temperature because this is dangerous.”

“In the mind of Donald Trump, an atmosphere of fear, chaos and violence really works for him, he thinks,” added Sykes. “He looks at that and he says yes, I can work with this. This will benefit me.”

“He pours the kerosene on the fire daily and again, it’s increasing and it’s going to get worse over the next year and a half.”

Sykes was responding to the FBI’s murder of a Utah man who authorities say had made death threats online against President Joe Biden and Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Craig Robertson was shot on Wednesday by officers attempting to issue arrest and search warrants at his home, the FBI said.

According to indictment documents, Robertson called Bragg — who is prosecuting Trump in the Stormy Daniels hush money case — a “radical foolish accuser” and threatened to kill him.

Trump routinely threatens and attacks judges and prosecutors involved in cases against him. He has repeatedly lashed out at Bragg, once suggesting that a charge by Bragg could lead to “death and destruction.”

The former president has been indicted three times this year on charges related to a 2016 hush money payment, his handling of classified documents after leaving office and, most recently, his attempted coup after the 2020 election.
