NYT columnist warns CNN of 'potential 2nd Civil War' over Trump-Biden election

뉴욕 타임즈 columnist Tom Friedman believes the U.S. could be on the verge of a “potential second Civil Warover the upcoming 대통령 선거.

Friedman, a frequent CNN guest and critic of the presdient, 말했다 트럼프 대통령 Wednesday remarks in which he sidestepped whether he’d commit to a peaceful transfer of power should he lose sounded like a “six-alarm fire” to him.

Trump told a reporter in a White House news conference Wednesday he would have tosee what happensbefore agreeing to a peaceful transfer of power after the election. “You know that I’ve been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster,” 그는 말했다.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper, surprised by Friedman’s assertion, asked if he genuinely meant what he said.

“Yeah,” Friedman answered, “The president of the United States has told us, ‘Either I win the election or I delegitimize the election.’ Those are your choices, folks.” He added he was “surprised and shocked” by the remarks.

Friedman posited Trump was also trying to “break people’s will” with the remarks, so voters might say “‘What the heck, he wants it so bad, just give it to him.’”

He said he thinks Trump will inevitably dispute the election unless he’s named the victor in November.

“If you’re not frightened now, if you are not terrified for what could happen, it’s not ‘We might have a disputed election.’ It is, ‘We are going to have a disputed election, almost certainly,’ unless Trump wins, in which case I shudder to think what four more years of this would be like,”그는 말했다.
