Picking up on how House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed President Trump might not leave office if he loses by a close margin, MSNBC host Joy Reid on Sunday gave credence to how “there is a very real possibility that the President of the United States wants to have foreign interference again so that he can stay office” and “he doesn’t have any intention of committing to a peaceful transition of power.”
She quoted from an article about how Nixon considered refusing to leave office, and proposed: “So it’s not completely unprecedented that a President at least contemplates the idea of staying in office unconstitutionally. How much of a threat do you think there is of that now with this president?”
