Juan Williams is one of the most liberal commentators on FOX News. In a recent column at The Hill, Williams suggested that Trump may refuse to leave office if he loses the 2020 election. How utterly ridiculous.
The Washington Times reports:
Juan Williams warns: Trump may ‘refuse to leave’ White House if he loses in 2020
Juan Williams is worried that a Shakespearean tragedy awaits the nation in 2020 if President Trump loses his re-election bid.
The fictional witches in “Macbeth” chanted “double, double toil and trouble; fire burn and caldron bubble” as they worked their magic, but the Fox News analyst says Mr. Trump has a “witches’ brew” that is legitimately dangerous.
“It is no longer outside the realm of possibility that Trump could refuse to leave if he loses the 2020 election,” Mr. Williams warned in an op-ed for The Hill on Monday. “And if he does not accept an election defeat — a scenario he threatened in 2016 — he will have a virtual army on social media to defend him.”
Mr. Trump said in October 2016 that he would accept a “clear election result,” but that he also reserved the right “to contest or file a legal challenge in the case of a questionable result. And always, I will follow and abide by all of the rules and traditions of all of the many candidates who have come before me. Always.”
Williams even tweeted about his column:

This is nuts. There's absolutely no reason to believe this.

Juan you are high! That can be the only explanation for this ridiculous tweet. Or perhaps you have mixed up who cannot accept defeat!

More likely he will win re-election and the left refuses to acknowledge his second term.

Juan needs to get a grip on reality.
