On Thursday, conservative pundit Rick Wilson tweeted out his frustration and worry after President Donald Trump said that his supporters would wreak havoc on his opponents.
Trump, who values loyalty, experienced an epic defeat after 12 Republican Senators joined Democrats to vote against his national emergency declaration.
“It is true that Trump is only an aspirational authoritarian, and to date has failed to bring his most illiberal dreams to life,” a report from New York Magazine reads.
In an interview with Breitbart News Trump said that his supporters are “tough” and that it would be “very bad” for people to cross them.
“I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay?” Trump said. “I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad.”
Wilson explained that Trump gets closer to acting like a “tyrant” more every day.

Cool Republic we had. Shame about the new ownership.
