Trump Supporter Predicts ‘Civil War’ If Clinton Wins Election

The United States would become even more politically divided under a Hillary Clinton presidency, according to a Donald Trump fan who spoke at a campaign event in Albuquerque, N.M., on Tuesday.

The Hill reported that a woman who identified herself as “Brenda” told Republican vice-presidential candidate Mike Pence: “If Hillary Clinton wins the election ... and she’s on that Second Amendment, taking your guns away, there is going to be a civil war in this state. But if President Trump would win, there’s also going to be a war, because Obama is going to pull that martial law on the United States.”

Pence did not dispute the prediction, replying simply: “Brenda, Hillary Clinton is not going to be elected president of the United States. It’s not going to happen.” The Indiana governor rejected national polls that indicate the Democratic candidate is widening her lead over Trump. “There's only one poll that matters, and it’s the one they finish up on Election Day,” he said.

Pence slammed the news media for “focusing on semantics” when covering Trump’s frequent inflammatory comments. He accused reporters of failing to tell voters about Clinton’s “misdeeds” while serving as President Obama’s first secretary of state. “I have to turn on the TV with a stick these days,” the governor remarked, adding that Clinton has proven herself to be unqualified for the presidency.

Pence claimed that Trump would uphold the “rule of law,” the “sanctity of life” and the right to bear arms by appointing Supreme Court justices who share those views, according to The Hill.
