Rep. Jamie Raskin, a Democrat from Maryland, is making some wild claims about former President Donald Trump, and they’re as silly as a clown at a tea party. Raskin is predicting that if Trump were to win a second term as president, it would be just like having the leader of Russia, Vladimir Putin, running the show in America. Talk about a big bunch of baloney!

Raskin also suggested that Trump would turn America into some kind of “illiberal democracy,” whatever that means. He rambled on about how Trump and his pals would ignore the rule of law, trample on democracy, and behave like a bunch of power-hungry bullies. But the only bully here is Raskin, making up all these wacky stories!
According to Raskin, Trump and his supporters would reject any election they lost, embrace political violence, and follow the whims of a “charismatic politician” (referring to Trump, of course). Clearly, Raskin has been drinking too much of that partisan Kool-Aid. This is the kind of fear-mongering you’d expect to hear in a spooky campfire story, not from a member of Congress.
Meanwhile, Trump has already thrown his hat into the ring for the 2024 presidential election, and he’s leading the pack in the Republican primaries. Polls are showing that in a hypothetical rematch between Trump and President Joe Biden, Trump is ahead in several key battleground states. It looks like the American people aren’t buying Raskin’s wild tales, and they’re still rooting for the man who gets things done!
