Mike Huckabee hints that 2024 will be the last democratic election if Trump loses legal cases

 September 7, 2023

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee voiced concerns about the future of democratic elections if Trump’s current legal battles prevent his 2024 presidential run.

Huckabee made a bold statement regarding the potential consequences of former President Donald Trump's ongoing legal challenges, warning of bullets, not ballots, if Trump's legal battles halt his 2024 bid, as reported by The Hill.

Huckabee's concerns over Trump's legal woes

On his TBN show, Huckabee shared his fears about the fate of upcoming elections if Trump is blocked from running in 2024, an outcome several activist groups are attempting to engineer.

Huckabee said:

If these tactics end up working to keep Trump from winning or even running in 2024, it is going to be the last American election that will be decided by ballots rather than bullets.

Allegations of political motivations

The former governor argues that Trump's current legal issues are politically motivated by the Biden administration.

This sentiment, that the challenges faced by Trump are part of a plot to keep him from running, is shared by many in Trump's circle.

Huckabee claimed:

President Biden and his team are trying to make sure that Donald Trump is not his opponent in 2024 and to destroy Trump in the courthouse rather than at the ballot box.

Agencies accused of biased actions

Huckabee further alleges that institutions such as the Justice Department, the IRS, and the FBI might be working to shield the Biden family from legal scrutiny.

He believes these organizations are more interested in pursuing legal actions against Trump than addressing potential wrongdoings by the Bidens.

The former governor commented that the aforementioned agencies are "conspiring to hide the Biden family crimes, while all the time being obsessed with charging Donald Trump with crimes.”

Overview of Trump's legal challenges

As Trump pushes for a return to the White House in 2024, he grapples with a series of indictments on both federal and state levels.

In the wake of his 2020 loss to Biden, Trump has been confronted by a series of legal battles.

One major accusation stems from his alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election results.

Another focuses on his handling of classified documents, a charge that came after a Department of Justice probe.

Trump is also entangled in a prosecution in Manhattan concerning supposed hush-money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in 2016.

Furthermore, in Georgia, charges have been levied against him related to efforts to reverse the 2020 election results in the state.

Impact on Trump's popularity

Despite these legal hurdles, many believe the prosecutions have strengthened Trump's position in the GOP primary, judging from various polls.

However, some argue that these legal challenges should make him ineligible for the presidency.

Huckabee's admiration for Trump remains evident. Having made unsuccessful bids for the Republican presidential nomination himself in 2008 and 2016, Huckabee openly praises Trump, noting his leadership qualities that overshadow other GOP candidates.

Huckabee said:

I know that there are a dozen or so other Republican candidates wanting to be the GOP nominee next year... But if you watched what was more a game show than a substantive debate, you realize none of them have the gravitas of Donald Trump.

Interestingly, Trump decided not to participate in the Republican National Committee’s first presidential debate held last month.

That decision raised eyebrows and sparked conversations about his strategy for the upcoming election.
