Biden campaign, liberal media spread hoax that Trump threatened ‘bloodbath’ if not elected—he was talking about auto industry

The official Biden campaign page, CNBC, Politico, Mediaite, Keith Olbermann, and others took Trump out of context to suggest he was making violent threats if he lost the election.


On Saturday during an Ohio rally, former President Donald Trump said there would be a "bloodbath" in the automobile industry if President Joe Biden got reelected, meaning that many jobs would be lost. Liberal media and influencers jumped on the quote and took it out of context to suggest Trump was making violent threats. 

Headlines from Politico, Mediaite, Independent, as well as a post from official Biden HQ campaign page suggested that Trump was making violent threats when he said, "It’s gonna be a bloodbath for the country," in reference to the automobile industry, acting like it was a call for violence.

"China now is building a couple of massive plants where they're gonna build the cars in Mexico, and they think that they're gonna sell those cars into the United States," Trump stated. 

“If you’re listening, President XI,” Trump told the crowd. “Those big monster car manufacturing plants that you’re building in Mexico right now, and you think you’re going to get that, you’re going to not hire Americans and you’re going to sell the cars as now we’re going to put a 100% tariff on every single car that comes across the line, and you’re not going to be able to sell those guys if I get elected.”

Trump then, referring to the car industry said, "Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the whole — That’s going to be the least of it. It’s going to be a bloodbath for the country.”

Biden HQ - the official campaign page of the Biden-Harris campaign on X - posted an out of context clip of the president, saying, "Trump: If I don't get elected, it’s gonna be a bloodbath. It’s gonna be a bloodbath for the country."

Politico even published that it was "unclear what the former president meant exactly" in an archived copy of the outlet's report. In addition, the archived report added, "Trump frequently paints a dark picture of the country as he lays out his case against President Joe Biden ahead of November’s presidential rematch."

The Biden campaign later put out a statement, saying "Donald Trump continues to praise dictators, promise to pardon political violence, and launch racist attacks against Black and brown Americans."

Many left-wing influencers also posted the clip out of context. Keith Olbermann, posted, "This is a terrorist threat. FBI Detain him as he leaves the stage. After which America doesn't give a sh*t where you keep him."
