Even in defeat, Trump will pose a clear and present danger to America. – Robert Reich. 

​Trump’s parting gift to America is to undermine our faith in democratic institutions. “It’s one big fix,’’ Trump said yesterday afternoon in Greensboro, N.C. “This whole election is being rigged.’’ He’s claiming Democrats are planning to load up buses of minorities to vote several times in different areas, that boxes of Clinton votes are already waiting somewhere, that Mexicans are primed to rush across the border to vote, and that the media isn’t reporting any of this because it’s been “bought.”

If he loses, Trump wants to cast a pall over the legitimacy of a Clinton presidency. Some of his followers are even openly talking about violent rebellion and assassination. 
The Republican Party — the chair of the Republican National Committee, Republican leaders in Congress, and Republican outlets like Fox News — must condemn these dangerous provocations. Even in defeat, Trump will pose a clear and present danger to America.
