During her appearance on The View, Hillary Clinton warned
that a second Donald Trump presidency would lead to catastrophe.
She expressed hope for President Joe Biden’s chances at a second term but emphasized that if he were to lose to Trump, America would be in trouble.
Sunny Hostin asked Clinton what would happen if Trump were to be reelected. Despite his ongoing legal troubles, Trump has been beating Biden in polls.

Clinton replied, “I can’t even think that. It would be the end of our country as we know it. I don’t say that lightly.”
She hates losing, especially to him. She saw many warning signals during the campaign. But she immediately said, ‘Look, we must give him a chance. We’ve got to support the president we have.’ And she meant it. She tried hard.
According to Clinton, from his inauguration on, Trump did nothing but accuse people of things, make up facts, and deny the size of the crowd at his inauguration.
Clinton worries that a second Trump term would be worse than the first because he would no longer have anyone pushing back against his decisions, allowing him to do whatever he pleases.
Clinton believes that he would be even worse now. In his first term, he was somewhat restrained by people he hired because he thought they would accompany him. They stood up to him.
If he were ever near the Oval Office again, he would find people who have no principles, no conscience, who are tied to his fortunes, and therefore would do whatever he said. The wreckage is almost unimaginable.
Clinton urged Americans to take the threats posed by Trump seriously.
She advised people to take him at his word. She warned that he intends to jail those who disagree with him, shut down legitimate press outlets, and undermine the rule of law and the country’s values.
