Fox News Host’s Trump Conspiracy Sparks Backlash

Fox News contributor and co-host of The Five, Juan Williams, argued in an op-ed that President Donald Trump might refuse to step down if he loses re-election next year. 

The unfounded opinion ignited fierce criticism.

The Daily Caller reports:

In an opinion piece for The Hill, Williams wrote, “It is no longer outside the realm of possibility that Trump could refuse to leave if he loses the 2020 election. And if he does not accept an election defeat — a scenario he threatened in 2016 — he will have a virtual army on social media to defend him.”

“Where does this stop?” Williams concluded.

Williams tweeted out his opinion piece but was met with swift backlash from a variety of pundits accusing him of “scaremongering” and being “nuts.”


Williams’ conspiratorial tweet racked up over 20,000 replies compared to just under 1,500 likes — one of the worst “ratios” Twitter has likely ever seen.
