Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday that a second term for former President Donald Trump — who bested her in 2016 to win his first — “would be the end of our country as we know it.”

Clinton made an appearance on ABC’s midday talk show “The View,” where she warned that it was possible for Trump to win again and then attempt to stay in power by suspending future elections, adding, “Hitler was duly elected.”


The conversation began with co-host Sunny Hostin, who asked Clinton to weigh in on what she thought would happen if Trump were to win the Republican nomination and then the presidency in 2024.

“I think that your loss of Trump in 2016 will go down in history as one of the most pivotal times in our country. One of the most pivotal moments in our country. And it’s still reeling from, you know, Trump’s policies, I think, and the deep divisions that he sowed in this country. So what in your view, would happen if he were to be reelected?” Hostin asked.

“Oh, I can’t even, I can’t even think that because I think it would be the end of our country as we know it. And I don’t say that lightly,” Clinton replied.

“You know, I hated losing, and I especially hated losing to him because I had seen so many warning signals during the campaign,” she continued, going on to claim that she had “immediately” called on people to give Trump “a chance” once the election came out in his favor.

Clinton, who spent much of Trump’s first term claiming that he had “stolen” the election from her, went on to suggest that the former president would open a second term by suspending future elections.

“The wreckage is almost unimaginable. You know, when I was secretary of state, I used to talk about one and done. And what I meant by that is that people would get legitimately elected, and then they would try to do away with elections and do away with opposition and do away with a free press,” she explained. “And you could see it in countries where, well, Hitler was duly elected! (That’s right. Right.) And so all of a sudden, somebody with those tendencies, so dictatorial authoritarian tendencies would be like, ‘Oh, okay, we’re going to shut this down. We’re going to throw these people in jail.'”


“They didn’t usually telegraph that. Trump is telling us what he intends to do!” she concluded. “Take him at his word. The man means to throw people in jail who disagree with him, shut down legitimate press outlets, do what he can to literally undermine the rule of law and our country’s values.”
