(FixThisNation.com) – Sen. Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.) slammed the Republican presidential candidates arguing that the three, at the time, remaining presidential hopefuls would “undermine democracy.”
During her remarks which were made on NBC’s “Meet the Press” hours before Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that he would be dropping out of the presidential race and endorsing former President Donald Trump, Hassan argued that that both he and former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s pledge to back whoever ended up being the Republican nominee, even if it is former President Donald Trump shows that the Republican primary field has no real regard for the law.
On Sunday morning Hassan argued that Trump was very likely to be his party’s nominee based on everything that they had already seen. However, she argued that people needed to be extremely clear on how regardless of who won the nomination, they would be undermining U.S. democracy.
Hassan specifically noted that there were a number of past actions that had exhibited that Trump had advocated for violence, including his remarks in November when he had referred to his political enemies as “vermin.” The comment had resulted in Trump being attacked by many who compared his comments with the comments of a dictator.
Hassan pointed out that Trump had also used similar language when he had encouraged the Jan. 6 attack that he was an “election denier” and that he had bragged about being responsible for putting the Supreme Court justices in their seats which had allowed for women’s right to be rolled back.
