AOC Expresses Concerns Over Trump’s Potential Actions Against Political Opponents If He Secures Victory

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Expresses Fear of Trump’s Potential Return to Office

Renowned left-wing Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has voiced her concerns that former President Donald Trump may resort to imprisoning his political adversaries if he secures a victory in the forthcoming election.

Ocasio-Cortez shared these thoughts during an interview on ‘On with Kara Swisher’, a podcast hosted by seasoned journalist Kara Swisher.

“It might sound extreme, but I wouldn’t be taken aback if this man decided to put me behind bars,” she expressed. “He’s unpredictable. Remember, his initial campaign was centered around the phrase ‘lock her up.’ That seems to be his mantra.”

The Congresswoman from New York further stated that Trump could possibly “round up” his political rivals once he assumes office again. She also highlighted her staunch support for Joe Biden’s re-election bid.

“When he says he’ll round up people, I take him at his word. When he threatens journalists, I take him seriously. What we witnessed in his first term seems like a teaser compared to what he intends to do now. He’s learned from appointing professionals and won’t repeat that mistake.

Trump certainly stands a chance of winning. That’s why I’ve thrown my support behind Biden early and fervently. It’s clear that if Trump wins, we could witness the erosion of democracy in America. The question about what would happen to me or the Democratic Party pales in comparison to what could happen to our nation.”

Ocasio-Cortez is not alone among Democrats in expressing concerns about Trump’s potential return to the White House. Some have even suggested that he might resort to extreme measures.

In April, California Rep. Adam Schiff expressed his apprehension about the possibility of facing prosecution under a Trump administration, stating that he was preparing for such a scenario.

“We’re taking this seriously because we have to,” Schiff said. “We’ve seen this movie before… and how dangerous it is to ignore someone when they express their desire to become a dictator.”
