Following the deadly white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017, Trump said that “bikers for Trump” were “peaceful people” and that he hopes they “stay that way.”

This is not normal behavior for a US president.
This is the moment, and the day, when a squad of US Marshalls should escort trump out of the People's House. He had no business to bring Breitbart, of all media outlets, into the Oval office to send out a call for violence against our voting in 2020. He's crossed the red line. https://t.co/p2zuNkRZEw

This is the way two-bit, tin-horn tyrants talk. And would-be banana-Republican dictators.
It’s a shame no one in his own Republic party has the spine or the love of country to call him out on his dangerous language & un-American outlook.

I at one time envied Americans.
As a Canuck I always quietly thought America was the place to be, but not now.
Now I’m humbled to be safe in the country nobody pays attention to.
I feel terrible for any common sense American who clearly sees the divide #Trump is creating…

You can’t make this up. Even if you tried hard. Not even if it was in Hollywood. This is literally the worst reality show ever.

Let's be clear: is the president suggesting that he would foment a second Civil War if he loses in 2020?

This does not seem mob-like or despotic at all.

Incidentally, we were recently warned. During his tesimony before the House Oversight Committee last month, Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen predicted that Trump would refuse to peacefully relinquish power if he loses the 2020 election.
“I fear that if he loses the presidential election in 2020, there will never be a peaceful transition of power,” Cohen said.
With good reason.
