Joe Biden‘s Campaign has accused his rival donald trump of wanting “another January 6” after the former president warned that there would be an “economic”slaughter“If he loses the elections.

Speaking in Ohio on Saturday to endorse Republican Senate candidate Bernie Moreno, Trump told the crowd: “Now, if I’m not elected… it’s it’s going to be a bloodbath For the country.”

In response, the Biden-Harris campaign issued a statementstating that Trump “wants another January 6, but the American people are going to hand him another electoral defeat this November because they continue to reject his extremism, his penchant for violence and his thirst for revenge.”

“This is who donald trump “It is: a loser who is defeated by more than 7 million votes and then, instead of appealing to a broader audience, doubles down on his threats of political violence,” Biden’s team added.

He former presidentThe comment came against the backdrop of the promise of a “100 percent tariff” on foreign-made cars. “They won’t be able to sell those guys out if I get elected,” Trump said at the rally.

“Now, if I am not elected, it will be a bloodbath for the whole world; That will be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country. That will be the least of it.”

Trump campaign spokesman Steven Cheung dismissed the “bloodbath” comment as being related to violence, clarifying to the Washington Post that the GOP’s 2024 front-runner was referring to cars made outside the U.S. “If you really watch and listen to the section, he was talking about the auto industry and tariffs,” Cheung told the outlet. “Biden’s policies will create an economic bloodbath for the auto industry and auto workers,” he said.

Jason Miller, Trump’s senior campaign adviser, said on X, emphasizing that Trump was talking about “the auto industry.” He added: “Corrupt Joe Biden’s crazy EV mandate will massacre the American auto industry. So many jobs destroyed! “That’s why we have to elect President Trump.”

However, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi questioned what Trump meant by his “bloodbath” comment. She told CNN on Sunday: “We just have to win this election because he even predicts a bloodbath. What does that mean? Is it going to cause a bloodbath? “There is something wrong here.”

The California Democrat said: “How respectful I am of the American people and their goodness. But how much more do they have to see from him to understand that our country is not about that?

Meanwhile, members of Trump’s party flocked to his defense. South Dakota Republican Sen. Mike Rounds told CNN on Sunday: “With respect to the autoworkers he was talking to, he’s showing them or telling them what an economic crisis has been for them.”

Louisiana Republican Senator Bill Cassidy told NBC News: “You could also look at the definition of a bloodbath and it could be an economic disaster. And if you talk about the auto industry, particularly in Ohio, [that gives it] a little more context.”

But Trump’s speech as a whole, Cassidy said, raised another question: “The overall tone of the speech is why many Americans continue to ask, ‘Should President Trump be president?’ That kind of rhetoric is always on edge. Maybe it doesn’t cross over, maybe it does, depending on your perspective.”

At the rally, Trump also escalated his attack on undocumented immigrants. “I don’t know if you call them people,” he said. “In my opinion, in some cases they are not people. But I’m not allowed to say that because the radical left says it’s a terrible thing.”

The former president has had no qualms about his anti-immigrant agenda. During his 2016 presidential campaign, he described Mexican immigrants entering the United States as “rapists” and “murderers”.

More recently, at a rally in December, he told the crowd: “You are poisoning the blood of the country. That’s what they’ve done.” After that attack, the Biden campaign condemned his dehumanizing language and accused him of “channeling his role models” and “repeating Adolf Hitler”.

Mr. Trump also mentioned Laken Riley – the Georgia nursing student who was murdered last month. His murder suspect it’s a undocumented migrant. Immediately after his death, Trump took to Truth Social to label the suspect “amonster” and blaming “corrupt Joe Biden’s border INVASION” for “destroying our country and killing our citizens.”

He repeated the same language Saturday, telling the crowd: “We in the Republican Party believe that Laken’s killer is an illegal alien criminal.” Trump added: “I would never, ever have been in our country if the election hadn’t been rigged,” adding another familiar phrase.

In his State of the Union address, Biden said: “Laken Riley, an innocent young woman who was murdered by an illegal,” a description for which he later apologized, saying he should have said “undocumented.”

Biden added: “But how many thousands of people are being murdered by law enforcement?” Biden then turned the tables on Trump, blaming him for the collapse of a compromise on the border bill. “Policy [has] derailed this bill so far. “I was told that my predecessor called members of Congress in the Senate to demand that they block the bill,” Biden said of Trump, whose name he would not name.

“I would respectfully suggest to my Republican friends… the American people that this bill be passed. We need to act now,” he added.

Republicans walked away of the border deal last month at the behest of Trump, who did not want Biden to score a victory on the issue before the election.

Meanwhile, former Vice President Mike Pence announced Saturday that He refused to endorse Trump and added that he would not vote for Biden any.

Pence, former presidential candidate for 2024said Saturday: “It should come as no surprise that I will not be supporting Donald Trump this year.”

“But that said, during my presidential campaign, I made clear that there were deep differences between President Trump and me on a variety of issues and not just our difference on my constitutional duties that I exercised on January 6,” he said on Fox News.

And he added: “I will keep my vote to myself. I would never vote for Joe Biden. How I vote when the curtain closes, that will be for me.”

In their fiery statement after the Ohio rally, the Biden-Harris team mentioned the narrow defeat of Mr Trumpattributing the former president’s decision “to praise dictators, promise to forgive political violence, and launch racist attacks against black and brown Americans” to why Pence spoke out against Trump.
