Trump has the ability to kill and destroy with the spoken word. His words; his lies, delusions and conspiracy theories have caused bloodshed. That is what happened on January 6th. His words will surely kill again. — Steve Schmidt, co-founder of the anti-Trump PAC The Lincoln Project

Trump is a 'clear and present danger' and his words will 'surely kill again' says Lincoln Project co-founder
  • Donald Trump's words will "surely kill again," said Steve Schmidt, co-founder of the anti-Trump PAC The Lincoln Project.
  • Schmidt said the media had wrongly suggested Trump was losing influence over the country and the Republican party.
  • "Trump has the ability to kill and destroy with the spoken word ... His words will surely kill again," he said.
  • Schmidt made the comments while criticizing what he called the "profoundly stupid" media coverage ridiculing Trump's decision to shut down his personal blog.

    The president shut down his blog last week after reportedly becoming furious that it was not receiving enough website traffic or engagement from readers.

    However, Schmidt, a former Republican strategist who resigned from the Lincoln Project in February amid numerous controversies at the organization, said too much media coverage had wrongly suggested that the closure of Trump's blog was evidence of the former president's declining influence over the country and the Republican Party.

    "Some have posited that Trump's loss, social media bans, and inability to sustain a blog are evidence of his decline, irrelevance and diminishment," he wrote on Twitter on Saturday.

    He added: "These people are fools and their delusions are dangerous for the survival of American democracy. We are at an hour that requires people to wake up. Trump is powerful and he is a clear and PRESENT danger to our democratic society and national stability."

    "Trump has the ability to kill and destroy with the spoken word. His words; his lies, delusions and conspiracy theories have caused bloodshed. That is what happened on January 6th. His words will surely kill again."


    ... "A Trump indictment will not kill off Trump or his movement, it will simply hasten his candidacy," he said.
