The Left Accuses Trump of Inciting a ‘Civil War’

Former President Donald Trump is getting some pushback from the left and even from some members of his own party for sharing a meme that apparently was encouraging Americans to rise up and declare “civil war” over the Biden administration’s failure to restrain rising inflation.

The latest brouhaha started when Trump shared a post that was originally uploaded to a Truth Social. Truth Social is the social media site that was set up by the former president himself after he was banned from mainstream platforms in the wake of the January 6 attack over fears he might incite further violence.

The civil war comment, written by user “MAGA King Thanos,” was in response to a screenshot of a March 20 tweet by El Salvador’s president, Nayib Bukele, which was shared by former CBS News correspondent turned right-wing conspiracy theorist Lara Logan.

In a tweet in question, Bukele wrote, “The most powerful country in the world is falling so fast, that it makes you rethink what are the real reasons. Something so big and powerful can’t be destroyed so quickly, unless the enemy comes from within.”

Bukele’s tweet cited a Bloomberg op-ed headlined “Inflation Stings Most If You Earn Less Than $300K. Here’s How to Deal.”

The post that Trump reshared captured the Truth Social user’s comment on Bukele’s tweet, which was headlined “Civil War.” 

As you might imagine, Trump’s sharing of MAGA King Thanos’ comment, including the original tweet, got the left’s and the usual “RINO’s” panties in a bunch

The anti-Trump political group MeidasTouch tweeted, “The disgraced, twice-impeached former president just shared a post from another user on his social media platform calling for Civil War. This is beyond dangerous.”

Democratic California Congressman Eric Swalwell said: “Donald Trump is calling for Civil War. Of course, like Vietnam and the walk to the Insurrection, he won’t be man enough to fight it.”

George Conway, a lawyer and another frequent Trump critic who also is married to former White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, tweeted: “Nothing to see here. Just a former president of the United States sharing a social media post advocating or predicting civil war in the United States. No biggie.”

And one of only two Republicans on the Jan. 6. committee, Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, one of the most vocal critics of the former president in the GOP, also condemned Trump for appearing to advocate for civil war in the US

“Any of my fellow Republicans wanna speak out now? Or are we just wanting to get through ‘just one more election first…? Kinzinger tweeted.

But let’s get real here people.

One, inflation does suck. Two, Bloomberg’s “solutions” that the original poster picked up on were absolutely ridiculous, and most importantly, there really was nothing in the original post or Mr. Trump’s sharing of it that “called for civil war.” What it did was call out the Biden administration for doing nothing to ease the pain that rampant inflation is inflicting on America.

As to Trump’s motivation for sharing the post, it probably has much less to do with his desire to “burn down the country,” as some have said, and more to do with stoking the flames of controversy to get more eyeballs on his fledgling social media outlet.

In fact, just as everyone was getting upset about the “civil war” reshare on Truth Social, Trump took to the social media company he founded to claim Elon Musk had told a lie and that his bid to buy Twitter was “probably illegal.”

“Gee, Elon Musk never told me that until now he voted for Democrats. Actually, it was quite the contrary, but now it seems, with all of his problems with a probably illegal  purchase of Twitter, he wants to be a Republican because the Dems are “a party of hate.” I could have told him that a long time ago, but actually, they are a Party of sickness, greed, corruption, and absolutely horrible policy. Good luck, Elon, have fun!!!”

Although Musk has vowed to allow Trump to return to Twitter if his buyout closes successfully, Trump has repeatedly said that he won’t go back, and his recent dig at the Space X CEO was the latest sign that he holds no enthusiasm for Twitter or Musk.

Trump lashed out at Musk as his own social media venture faces the prospect of increased competition if Musk acquires Twitter and allows conservatives that had been banned a freer rein on the site.

  1. The democrats never cease to amaze me with the utter rubbish they spew ! I say “ keep it up , your relevance is zero , and everyone knows you have no credibility whatsoever “

  2. The only people pushing for a Civil War in America are the ones destroying it , DEMOCRATS ! AND IN THE END IT WILL BE THEM THAT GET DESTROYED , and sent to hell where they were spawned .

  3. Darn and all the time i thought obambo and his thug army was the ones doing it Not to mention stilling electons Defunding Cops , and all the Hates they spew with ther MSM lies But with the crooked FBI and DOJ to back them i guess we had better ARM up and keep plenty powder dry at the ready

  4. What would be so terrible about a civil war? It could solve a lot of our current national problems and restore the fading Constitution.

  5. Those who can’t see that this country is teetering on the brink of Civil War are blind, ignorant and lying to themselves.

  6. One thing that you must know about the Democrats is that they lie about Trump consistently. Whatever Trump does that’s good, they make it into something bad. I used to be a Democrat, but the Democrats are now Socialists and Communists. Nothing like the Party from my Parents’ time. Swalwell has some nerve opening his mouth as he should be in jail for what he’s done. As for Cheney, (who has had it in for Trump since Day One), Kinsinger (the cry Baby), Rinos all and many more of them such as Romney. They don’t care about the good things that Trump has done and it doesn’t seem to bother them that OBiden has destroyed this Country so bad that there’s no turning back. It was Obama that divided this Country, not Trump. Obama is a Socialist/Communist. This 1/6 debacle never should have been allowed to have its Day,it was all a set up against Trump.

  7. My civics teacher clear back in the 60’s said we would be destroyed from within. I never thought I would see it. But after watching Biden destroy one thing after another and everyone standing around wringing their hands and nobody is stopping him. What will be left by Nov.obama’s hope and change.

  8. This amoral and evil BEAST, is so limited in which course to take, that the only alternative in his mind is to create havoc. Even if it devastates our Country with a civil war. His bad and spoiled upbringing taught him one thing, if I cannot have it my way, I will destroy it.

  9. It is exactly what we need here to stop the communist socialist democrats from tearing down this country and if that means democrats and liberals will b killed so be it along with the propaganda media and Hollywood Morons.

  10. There’s one very important thing you need to know about the Democratic Socialist Party, is what ever they’ve accusing Trump/conservatives of, is what they’re doing themselves! Just look back at Trumps presidency and all the false accusations they made, with the help of their fake news media, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, NPR, Wash-Post, NY-Times, LA-Times…etc. Moreover, we can’t forget about the collusion of the Tech-Giants.

    All of these alleged news platforms are 100% bias and spread false narratives to bring down capitalism and replace it with Communism. Remember, the Democratic Party never allows a travesty to go to waist…

    The left insists that the American people should forget what they see with their own eyes and believe what their radical left wing party tells you. This November is when We The People can send these bums packing by taking back both house’s!!!

  11. It’s getting closer every day, but it is not here yet.

    But with the Ministry of truth. The Press secretary like Heir Goebbels on steroids. the senile Furer pushing for an unelected total gun grabber to be able to make rules against the second amendment without any oversight and many other things like being driven into a 3d world economy with empty shelves of food you can’t afford anyway is more then enough to cause a civil war. PRESIDENT Trump doesn’t need to incite anything. Mr brandon is doing the job of fermenting civil war way better the the Don Trump ever could.

    November might be the end because the NWO Marxist (democrat) party may try to pull off a Coup De Tat and install the senile puppet as dictator before the new AMERICAN house and Sennett is sworn in January.

    It’s going to be a long hot summer too when all this “green energy ” comes home to roost and there is not enough power to run the air conditioners. The we are looking at a cold winter when people will not have the money to pay for Natural Gas and Heating Oil. The average American is not much into not having the money to keep the house at over 58 degrees.

    The only thing they can pin on PRESIDENT Trump is getting We the People used to good times and prosperity that the NWO Marxist (democrat) elites and their senile old puppet has taken away,,,,and is taking more of it away every single day. … If that can’t cause a war, tell me what can? PRESIDENT Trump doesn’t need to say a thing.

    PRESIDENT Trump 2024
    Take America back and keep it this time

  12. We will need no help from the great President Trump to do this. The left is setting it up just fine for this to happen or maybe they just can’t see the writing on the wall as they keep up their stupid narrative. I guess the left is so blinded by hate that they don’t have a clue

  13. I WISH THEY WOULD BE A TRUE CIVIL WAR . WE ALL NO WHAT GROUP IS RESPONSABLE FOR MOST OF THE CRIMES IN AMERICA . MURDERS ARE SO FAR UP . BREAK IN ECT, I TRULY FEEL ITS TIME FOR AMERICAS TO ADDRESS THIS GROUP , NOT THE GOV . I WAS NEVER LIKE THIS BUT I AM NOW .PEOPLE MAY THINK THIS IS NOT THE AWNSER SO I ASK WHAT IS , THEY TRIED EVERYTHING BUT A CIVIL WAR IN AMERICA . MR TRUMP DID NOT SAY WHAT IM SAYING , IM SPEAKING FOR THER MILLIONS WHO FEEL THE SAME WAY . THIS IS ALSO A GREAT IDEA FOR THE BORDER ALSO . TIME TO ACT , LOOK AT UKRAINE THEY ARE FIGHTING SO HARD FOR THERE COUNTRY AND THEN LOOK AT US ..WE SHOULD BE LEARNING HOW TO FIGHT FROM THEM

  14. FJB🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻
    DEMONCRAPS S**K🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

  15. No civil war is going to happen. That’s all crap from the Left to keep pounding on President Trump.
    But perhaps despite all the illegals that the Democrats will get to vote we can still get a majority in the legislature. That’s the best outcome we can hope for.
