MSNBC’s Chris Hayes Claims Trump Openly Planning ‘Coup To Steal The Election’

On Wednesday, MSNBC host Chris Hayes claimed President Donald Trump was “plotting, in open, in public, repeatedly, a coup to steal the election and hold onto power.”

“We begin tonight with a chilling moment, I’ve got to say. I don’t know any other way to say it — the president of the United States threatening violence to stay in power,” Hayes accused Trump.

Hayes: ‘When Explicitly Asked To Commit To A Peaceful Transfer Of Power Today, He Declined’

“Sounds weird coming out of my mouth, but that’s what happened,” he said on his show “All In.”

“When explicitly asked to commit to a peaceful transfer of power today, he declined, and this was his response.”

Hayes then played a video from a press conference earlier in the day in which a reporter asked the President, “Will you commit to making sure that there is a peaceful transfer of power after the election?”

Trump: ‘The Democrats Know It Better Than Anybody Else’

Trump replied, “We will have to see what happens. You know that. I have been complaining very strongly about the ballots, and the ballots are a disaster.”

The reporter repeated the question, “I understand that, but people are rioting. Do you commit to making sure there is a peaceful transfer of power?”

Trump responded, “We want — get rid of the ballots, and we’ll have a very peaceful —there won’t be a transfer, frankly. There will be a continuation. You know it. You know who knows it better than anybody else?”

“The Democrats know it better than anybody else,” Trump added.

Hayes Accuses Trump Of Plotting ‘A Coup’ To Steal The Election

Hayes said, “Just to be clear if you are talking to a person and you ask them to commit to behave peacefully, and they refuse, they’re threatening violence, right?”

“What the president is doing here is the most explicit that he has been about his plans for this election,” Hayes said. “He’s plotting, in open, in public, repeatedly, a coup to steal the election and hold onto power.”

Hayes added, “Again it all sounds crazy to say, but those are the plain facts as assembled before us.”

“It is not a behind-the-scenes type of thing,” Hayes finished. “It is happening in public, in plain view.”
