Rachel Maddow was “worried” that Trump might send her to an internment camp if he was re-elected president

On Monday, MSNBC host Rachel Maddow expressed concerns that former President Donald Trump would use a potential return to the White House to put her in an internment camp.

Internment camps were last used in the United States during World War II to hold Japanese Americans. In an interview with CNN, the presenter explained that she fears that Trump may revive such camps for his harshest critics, like herself.

“I worry for the entire country if we put someone in power who openly admits that he plans to build camps that could hold millions of people and ‘eradicate’ what he describes in subhuman terms as the ‘enemy from within,'” she said. , referring to Trump’s rhetoric towards Marxists and communists. “Again, history is helpful here. He’s not joking when he says things like that, and we’ve seen what happens when people take power with this kind of agenda.”

Continuing, Maddow predicted that Trump would go as far as declaring martial law on the first day of his presidency.

When Trump invokes the Insurrection Act to deploy the U.S. military against civilians on his first day in office, do you think he rescinds that order on his second day?” she asked. “And for that matter, what convinces you that these huge camps he is planning are only for migrants? So yes, I worry about myself, but only as much as I worry about all of us.

Maddow has been an outspoken critic of Trump throughout his re-election bid. In March, she told viewers of MSNBC’s Super Tuesday program that they would not hear all of President Donald Trump’s winning speeches because they were considered “irresponsible for broadcasting.”

The network took a similar step in January when it cut its coverage of Trump’s post-victory speech at the Iowa Republican caucuses. Maddow told viewers that allowing them to see it live could come at a “cost to us.”
