"If we don't win this election, I don't think you're going to have another election in this country," Trump said. The former Republican president has been using increasingly dystopian rhetoric in his campaign speeches about the state of the country. Asked for a response to Trump's "bloodbath" comment, Biden campaign spokesperson James Singer condemned Trump's "extremism", "his thirst for revenge", and his "threats of political violence". Trump also appealed to Blacks and Hispanics, voters who will play a key role in deciding November's election.
