Last weekend, former President Donald Trump posted a message on his social media platform that has many of his critics issuing rebukes and warnings, such as well-known attorney George Conway, who described the post as “advocating or predicting civil war in the United States.”

After Fox Nation’s conspiracy theorist Lara Logan reposted a message from the right-wing  President of El Salvador suggesting that the United States is “falling so fast” due to an “enemy” within, MAGA King Thanos, an account on Trump’s Truth Social platform commented “Civil War.”  Trump reposted that message.

“Nothing to see here,” Conway wrote on Twitter, before continuing “Just a former president of the United States sharing a social media post advocating or predicting civil war in the United States. No biggie.”

Many others had thoughts and opinions on the repost:

Former GOP Congressman Denver Riggleman said “Trump mirrors his base. Pay attention.”

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, a very vocal critic of Trump, sarcastically asked Any of my fellow Republicans wanna speak out now? Or are we just wanting to get through “just one more election first…?”

Bulwark columnist Amanda Carpenter asked “Tell me how … he has never egged on violence again?”

Veteran foreign correspondent Robert Lusetich asked When will be stop believing Trump has the slightest interest in actual democracy? Elections are an inconvenience to him. He is a political arsonist.”

Attorney, journalist, and cable news contributor Dean Obeidallah writes, “Trump’s suggestion of a Civil War appears to forget that on Jan 6 he and his forces tried that and FAILED. But the fact Trump can call for a civil war today is only possible because DOJ has still not prosecuted Trump–despite it being 502 days since Jan 6!”

The original tweet from El Salvadorian President Bukele read “The most powerful country in the world is falling so fast, that it makes you rethink what are the real reasons. Something so big and powerful can’t be destroyed so quickly, unless the enemy comes from within.”  The tweet was in response to a Bloomberg tweet on how Americans earning under $300,000 a year are coping with inflation.
