CNN national security analyst Juliette Kayyem expressed concerns about former President Donald Trump using the threat of violence to rally support for the 2024 election.

She highlighted the normalization of violence as an extension of democratic differences and emphasized the potential impact on the election.

Kayyem warned about the permissive atmosphere created by the lack of condemnation from Trump’s party and the potential consequences if he were to win the presidency. (Trending: Joe Biden Emailed Hunter’s Business Associates 54 Times)

“It’s about to be 2024. We are running into an election period in which violence and the threat of violence are sort of viewed as an extension of our normal democratic differences,” Kayyem said.

“This is one of the successes of what Donald Trump has been able to do, is to sort of be kind of casual about violence.”

“There’s two things. I don’t know how to say it louder, just like everyone needs to brace for this year, 2024 is going to be a year in which elections and the threat of violence overhangs this election for two reasons.”

“One is Trump is not hiding it. I don’t need to pretend both sides here.”

“Potentially, the lead candidate for the GOP, who’s going to get the nomination, is utilizing language and violence in the threat of violence as a way to rally his people to get support, and his party is sort of ignoring it.”

“They’re not condemning it. I think that, then, creates an atmosphere in which violence becomes more permissive.”

“That’s what’s happening here, this permissive structure. The second is if you guess a nomination, he could win.”

“And then, if there’s a win at the end of 2024, that’s when I don’t know how to. I tend not to have my hair on fire. I don’t know how to explain or curb how the violence unfolds if Donald Trump does become president.”
