Hillary Clinton believes Trump 'really wants' to emulate Putin and 'kill' and 'imprison his opposition' as Democrats put Trump on trial

 April 20, 2024

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton believes former President Donald Trump wants to be an authoritarian ruler if reelected, the Daily Caller reported. Clinton took another crack at the Russia collusion hoax, saying Trump is akin to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The former Secretary of State shared her assessment of Trump on Friday on the Democracy Docket podcast.  "Putin does what [Trump] would like to do," Clinton said to Marc Elias, an election attorney.

"Kill his opposition, imprison his opposition, drive journalists into exile, rule without any check or balance," Clinton said. "That’s what Trump really wants."

Russia Collusion 2.0

Clinton is trying to advance the narrative that Trump idolizes dictators such as Putin and that it somehow compromises him, essentially reimagining the Russia collusion hoax. She has to say this because, tragically, Democrats have nothing else to run on.

"We have to be very conscious of how he sees the world because, in that world, he only sees strong men leaders. He sees Putin, he sees Xi, he sees Kim Jong Un in North Korea," she said of Trump.

"Those are the people he is modeling himself after, and we’ve been down this road in our, you know, world history. We sure don’t want to go down that again," Clinton added.

She went on to reassert the since-debunked narrative that Putin targeted her 2016 presidential campaign. "[O]ne of the reasons he went after me is because he knew I would deal with him in an appropriate way, and Trump would basically do whatever he wanted; it’s really important to think about what could happen to our world with Trump back in the White House," Clinton said.

"Withdrawing us from NATO, not caring about what happens with Europe … The idea that he wants Ukraine to fail. The idea that he doesn’t want us to be able to surveil our enemies. This is a very scary prospect," she said.

The Democrats' Playbook

Clinton smeared Trump by accusing him of using tactics she and the Democratic Party used against him. The tragic truth is that she did so without a hint of self-awareness and with the confidence that some on her side would believe it.

Trump is currently the target of four criminal prosecutions, and many believe they are politically motivated, according to Fox News. This is unprecedented and only came after he announced he would be running against President Joe Biden.

The first trial began this week in New York over alleged hush money payments. Some, like former Assistant Georgia U.S. Attorney John Malcom, see it as nothing more than Democrats' effort to silence Trump.

"In my view, the prosecution that is currently underway against former President Trump in New York City is the most overtly political of the four criminal cases pending against him," Malcom said. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg campaigned on the promise to go after Trump if elected, Malcom pointed out.

Clinton and her ilk have attacked Trump with everything in their arsenal to no avail. The only thing they have left to do is to project all of the low, dirty tricks Democrats have pulled onto Trump and hope it sticks.
